Welcome to the Week 17 tight end rankings. I’ve done my best with this ugly group of options, and I will wake up and grind some more on Sunday. I’ll be available most of the morning for those who have tough decisions. I’m more than happy to be your second opinion if you need one. Hit me up on Twitter.

I will update these rankings on Sunday morning as needed.

Good luck to all this week!

These rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.

Rank PLAYER Cost TEAM Matchup Status THE SKINNY
1 Travis Kelce 5000 KC KC@SD 04:25PM ET Killing it these days.
2 Jimmy Graham 4500 Sea Sea@SF 04:25PM ET Elbow / questionable Great situation for him this week.
3 Zach Ertz 4800 Phi Dal@Phi 01:00PM ET Should see a ton of targets.
4 Kyle Rudolph 4600 Min Chi@Min 01:00PM ET He’s always a threat to score.
5 Eric Ebron 3600 Det GB@Det 08:30PM ET Has a chance this week for sure. Looked very good in Week 16.
6 Greg Olsen 5500 Car Car@TB 01:00PM ET Elbow / no practice Could be limited. Risky, but it’s a tough week so you may want to play him and pray.
7 Delanie Walker 4000 Ten Hou@Ten 01:00PM ET He’s stuck with Cassel at QB so who knows.
8 Charles Clay 3500 Buf Buf@NYJ 01:00PM ET Playing well and his knee is not a big concern. The Jets stink at covering most everything, but tight ends especially.
9 Jordan Reed 5100 Was NYG@Was 04:25PM ET He is playable but who knows what you will get.
10 C.J. Fiedorowicz 3900 Hou Hou@Ten 01:00PM ET Should see his usual complement of targets.
11 Antonio Gates 3800 SD KC@SD 04:25PM ET Tough matchup but he wants the TD record and they want to get for him. He’ll be involved.
12 Jesse James 3000 Pit Cle@Pit 01:00PM ET Green is out, so Jesse could do some damage and he’s got some decent rapport with Landry Jones. If Pitt cam move the ball, then James has a chance to score.
13 Dennis Pitta 3400 Bal Bal@Cin 01:00PM ET He’s been hit and miss the last month, but the hits have been solid, so if you need him, use him. 29 targets over the last four games.
14 Martellus Bennett 3900 NE NE@Mia 01:00PM ET Ankle / limited He’ll play but they may scale back his reps a bit.
15 Jack Doyle 3200 Ind Jax@Ind 01:00PM ET Doyle is viable with Moncrief out.
16 Vernon Davis 3300 Was NYG@Was 04:25PM ET Should be more secondary this week with Reed getting closer to healthy.
17 Coby Fleener 3100 NO NO@Atl 04:25PM ET Has upside in what projects as a barnburner, but he’s been very mediocre lately.
18 Jared Cook 3100 GB GB@Det 08:30PM ET Has upside, but it’s Jared freaking Cook, so the risk goes without saying.
19 Hunter Henry 2700 SD KC@SD 04:25PM ET Has big play and TD potential.
20 Jermaine Gresham 2600 Ari Ari@LA 04:25PM ET Is involved, but should block more this week against a tough front seven.
21 Dion Sims 2500 Mia NE@Mia 01:00PM ET Quiet last week but four scores over the last five weeks and he is now playing all of the snaps—which should have been the case all year to be honest.
22 Brandon Myers 2700 TB Car@TB 01:00PM ET Should get looks with Brate out.
23 Clive Walford 2500 Oak Oak@Den 04:25PM ET Scored last week though it’s now McGloin time.
24 Gary Barnidge 2900 Cle Cle@Pit 01:00PM ET Not as attractive with RGIII under center but viable.
25 Will Tye 2800 NYG NYG@Was 04:25PM ET
26 Daniel Brown 2500 Chi Chi@Min 01:00PM ET
27 Jason Witten 3100 Dal Dal@Phi 01:00PM ET Should sit most of the game.
28 Ryan Griffin 2900 Hou Hou@Ten 01:00PM ET
29 Gavin Escobar 2800 Dal Dal@Phi 01:00PM ET
30 Dwayne Allen 2600 Ind Jax@Ind 01:00PM ET
