Week 17 fantasy TE rankings for standard leagues

Quick Bit: You likely have a solid tight end if you’re preparing for your fantasy football championship matchup, but if you’re one of the few who doesn’t, our Week 17 fantasy TE rankings for standard leagues can help you find a sleeper or waiver-wire streamer to put your team over the top.

Full Story:

There aren’t many surprises left at any position by the time fantasy football championships roll around. You know the best players, best matchups, and best start ’em, sit ’em options on your team. Injuries can always throw a wrench into things, but for the most part, you’re set at virtually every spot. Tight end could be the one exception, as “stars” often disappoint and streamers tend to flourish every week. Our Week 17 fantasy TE rankings for standard leagues can help you spot this week’s potential sleepers and stayaways.

Outside of season-ending injuries to Kyle Pitts (knee) and Zach Ertz (shoulder) that fantasy owners have been dealing with for a while, tight end is pretty healthy right now. We’ll have to monitor Hayden Hurst (calf), but otherwise, it should be full systems go for all the key TEs.

If you need a streamer this week, your best bets are Jordan Akins (vs. Jaguars in Week 17), Cole Kmet (@ Lions), and Tyler Conklin (@ Seahawks). All three see regular targets, and all have matchups against defenses that entered Week 16 in the top eight in fantasy points allowed to TEs. None are particularly consistent, though, so you’d be taking a major risk starting any with your season on the line.


There are plenty of bubble TEs in good spots this week, including Pat Freiermuth (@ Ravens), Dalton Schultz (@ Titans), Dawson Knox (@ Bengals), Greg Dulcich (@ Chiefs), and Gerald Everett (vs. Rams). Schultz has by far the best matchup, but Freiermuth and Dulcich should see plenty of targets against suspect pass defenses. The Rams have been better against TEs the past couple of games, but Everett is still in play because of TD upside against a Rams’ defense that’s allowed a tight end score in six of the past nine games.
