Week 15: Fantasy Football Tight End, Defense & Kicker Rankings

By December 12, 2014No Comments

Fantasy football sure is a fickle beast. One minute you think you've got the tight end position all figure out, the next Jimmy Graham gives you a nice goose egg. It sucks but that's the way it goes.

Someone must have pissed the fantasy football gods off.

Luckily for all of you, it seems like things are going to get back on track for week 15.

There are some good and bad fantasy matchups for week 15 that you need to exploit or avoid.

As much as we truly believe that kickers are people too, we just can't justify doing a rankings post on kickers, defenses and tight ends separately. We're brining all the joy together.

Tight Ends for Week 15

This is being posted after the Thursday night game, which means I know Jared Cook didn't play well. I actually liked him this week, but oh well.

Gronk is a freak of nature. The guy leads all TE's in yards, 2nd in catches and 2nd in TD's. Start him <--- The most obvious advice you'll get all day.

Jimmy Graham is going to be okay. I've said it before and if I keep saying it I figure it'll have to happen at some point. Wait, the reality is he gets the Bears in week 15, whom is allowing the most fantasy points to TE's. It's time for Graham's fantasy football owners to be rewarded.

I owned Martellus Bennett this year and he was frustrating at times, but he's the #5 TE on the year. Plus he we 12 of 15 for 83 yards and a TD last week and has 26 targets over the past 2 weeks. With Marshall out look for it to continue.

There's hope for Travis Kelce, well at least we think Andy Reid is realizing that he's one of their best talents on the field. Or maybe he still think Fasano is the answer.

Defenses for Week 15
