Week 12 Rankings (PPR)

Lions T.J. Hockenson Fantasy Football

TIGHT ENDS

  1. Travis Kelce, KC (at TB)
  2. Darren Waller, LV (at ATL)
  3. T.J. Hockenson, DET (vs. HOU) - Hockenson continues to be a reliable option for fantasy fans, averaging nearly 12 fantasy points a game at what is a thin position.
  4. Hunter Henry, LAC (at BUF) - Buffalo’s defense has struggled against tight ends, allowing six touchdowns and the third-most fantasy points this season.
  5. Dallas Goedert, PHI (vs. SEA)
  6. Evan Engram, NYG (at CIN) - The Bengals defense has been generous to tight ends, allowing six touchdowns and nearly 15 fantasy points per game.
  7. Austin Hooper, CLE (at JAC)
  8. Kyle Rudolph, MIN (vs. CAR)
  9. Hayden Hurst, ATL (vs. LV)
  10. Rob Gronkowski, TB (vs. KC)
  11. Jonnu Smith, TEN (at IND)
  12. Eric Ebron, PIT (vs. BAL)
  13. Logan Thomas, WAS (at DAL)
  14. Dalton Schultz, DAL (vs. WAS) - Schultz has averaged seven targets over his last three games and has scored 11-plus fantasy points twice in that time.
  15. Mike Gesicki, MIA (at NYJ)
  16. Jordan Reed, SF (at LAR)
  17. Robert Tonyan, GB (vs. CHI)
  18. Jimmy Graham, CHI (at GB) - Green Bay has allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to tight ends this season, so I’d be fading Graham on Sunday night.
  19. Jordan Akins, HOU (at DET)
  20. Trey Burton, IND (vs. TEN) - The last time Burton faced this AFC South opponent (Week 10), he was held to three targets and just 5.4 fantasy points.
  21. Richard Rodgers, PHI (vs. SEA)
  22. Will Dissly, SEA (at PHI)
  23. Jared Cook, NO (at DEN) - Cook has now seen six targets in his last three games, and things aren’t likely to get better while Taysom Hill is under center.
  24. Gerald Everett, LAR (vs. SF) - No team in the entire league has allowed fewer fantasy points (7.9 PPG) to opposing tight ends than the Niners.
  25. Tyler Eifert, JAC (vs. CLE)
  26. Mo Alie-Cox, IND (vs. TEN)
  27. Tyler Higbee, LAR (vs. SF) - No team in the entire league has allowed fewer fantasy points (7.9 PPG) to opposing tight ends than the Niners.
  28. Jacob Hollister, SEA (at PHI)
  29. Irv Smith Jr., MIN (vs. CAR)
  30. Anthony Firkser, TEN (at IND)
