Enjoy! This article originally appeared on RotoBaller   Week 14 is the last week of the regular season in many fantasy leagues, while it could also be the opening round of the playoffs in other leagues depending on the postseason structure. So this is not the time to make a fantasy lineup mistake. If you still haven’t plugged the gaping hole left behind by Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham or Tyler Eifert on your fantasy team, you may be in serious trouble. The amount of decent tight ends available in fantasy leagues is dwindling faster than the San Diego Chargers’ receiving corps. Craig gives you the info on three tight ends that could help you out this week if you need one. Week 14 Waiver Wire — Tight Ends (TE) Luke Willson (TE, SEA) — 4% Owned in Fleaflicker Willson is no Jimmy Graham. Hell, he’s not even the best Willson/Wilson on his own offense. But what he is right now is the starting tight end on a team whose quarterback and offense are clicking on all cylinders at the perfect time of the season for fantasy owners. While Seattle’s offensive scheme does no favors for its tight ends (just ask Graham owners), Willson is an intriguing pickup because Russell Wilson is lighting defenses on fire with his torch tossing. The man has 11 touchdown passes over his last three contests and is playing like a...

Week 13 Tight End Waiver Wire Must Haves

Pick these guys up! We partnered with RotoBaller to give you accurate and timely waiver wire adds. In turn, they post our podcast to their site (which is centered around setting your weekly lineups). Enjoy! This article originally appeared on RotoBaller   Week 12 was the most disastrous week for tight ends in the NFL this season. The body count was sky-high and littered with elite names. Seattle’s Jimmy Graham is out for the season with a knee injury, New England’s Rob Gronkowski is week-to-week with his own knee injury according to ESPN and Cincinnati’s Tyler Eifert’s status is unknown after suffering a stinger. Pittsburgh’s Heath Miller also left his game with a rib injury. The waiver wire is producing plenty of tight end options late in the season, however. Philadelphia’s Brent Celek and Chicago’s Zach Miller were big pickups at the position last week and responded with touchdowns on Turkey Day. According to Craig,there are three more tight ends available in most leagues that could help you out if your starting TE was injured this past weekend. Here they are: Week 13 Waiver Wire — Tight Ends (TE) Scott Chandler (TE, NE) — 6% Owned in Fleaflicker With Gronkowski possibly out this week due to his knee injury, and with the Patriots losing receivers quicker than the Philadelphia 76ers lose basketball games, Chandler not only becomes the top tight end in New England, he may become Tom Brady’s top target. Chandler led the Pats with 11 targets in their last game, and not all of those came after Gronk was injured. It is not as if Chandler just...

Week 12 Tight End Waiver Wire Must Haves

Pick these guys up! We partnered with RotoBaller to give you accurate and timely waiver wire adds. In turn, they post our podcast to their site (which is centered around setting your weekly lineups). Enjoy! This article originally appeared on RotoBaller   There are no more byes to worry about, boys and girls. All healthy tight ends will be on the field this week and ready to rack up yards and touchdowns for their fantasy owners. So combing your league’s waiver wire for a decent tight end is probably not as necessary as it has been over the last six weeks. But you might be the not-so-proud owner of the slumping Jimmy Graham, the unproductive Jared Cook or the unpredictable Jacob Tamme and looking for an upgrade as your fantasy league enters its crucial stretch before the playoffs. Here are three tight ends you can pick up if you own one of these jokers or do not like your starting tight end’s matchup this week.  These are Craig’s Must Haves for week 12. Week 12 Waiver Wire — Tight Ends (TE) Brent Celek (TE, PHI) — 7% Owned in Fleaflicker I featured San Francisco’s Garrett Celek, Brent’s little brother, in last week’s column. I also featured Zach Ertz, Brent’s teammate, in the column. And yet here we are, one week later, and the spotlight now shines on Brent. Celek had been a fantasy zero for most of the season. If you took out the back-to-back games in October when Celek scored touchdowns, in his six other games he caught three passes. Many top tight ends catch three passes in...

Week 11 Tight End Waiver Wire Must Haves

Pick these guys up! We partnered with RotoBaller to give you accurate and timely waiver wire adds. In turn, they post our podcast to their site (which is centered around setting your weekly lineups). Enjoy! This article originally appeared on RotoBaller   The final week of teams being on bye is here, and fantasy owners are celebrating like Rex Ryan did when his Buffalo Bills beat the New York Jets last Thursday. Two of the biggest tight end surprises in fantasy football this season, New Orleans’ Benjamin Watson and Cleveland’s Gary Barnidge, are the top two tight ends who are off this week. Many fantasy owners will have humongous holes in their lineups because of it as their leagues enter a crucial stretch before their playoffs begin. Craig doesn’t want you to be blinded by the shocking statistics Chicago’s Zach Miller (107 yards, two TD) and Philadelphia’s Brent Celek (134 yards) posted this past weekend. These were anomalies. Neither guy is the best tight end on his team let alone worthy of a waiver wire addition. There are better nominees available at the position. Here are three tight ends worthy of a look on the waiver wire this week: Week 11 Waiver Wire — Tight Ends (TE) Zach Ertz (TE, PHI) — 38% Owned in Fleaflicker Ertz has had a harder time finding the end zone this season than Peyton Manning had finding Broncos receivers this past Sunday. The poor guy has not scored and is averaging a career-low 10.6 yards per catch. You would think between this and starting quarterback Sam Bradford probably missing Philadelphia’s next game due...

Week 10 Tight End Waiver Wire Must Adds

Pick these guys up! We partnered with RotoBaller to give you accurate and timely waiver wire adds. In turn, they post our podcast to their site (which is centered around setting your weekly lineups). Enjoy! This article originally appeared on RotoBaller   Fantasy football gets a little more back to normal this week after owners had to suffer through a bye week where a half-dozen teams were off. You’re probably not sweating as much this week with your Tight End. San Diego’s Antonio Gates is the most valuable tight end that is off, and most of the quality TEs are playing, so there probably aren’t too many fantasy owners in dire need of help at the position. But for those who do need to pick up a tight end from the waiver wire, two athletic, exciting youngsters head the free agent crop. Here are three tight ends which Craig thinks are worthy of a look on the waiver wire in Week 10. Week 10 Waiver Wire - Tight Ends (TE) Austin Seferian-Jenkins (TE, TB) - 50% Owned in Fleaflicker Remember this guy? Back in Week 1 the Tampa Bay tight end made fantasy owners take notice of him by catching five passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns against the Tennessee Titans. ASJ was poised to become a top-10 tight end, but then a serious shoulder injury derailed his fantasy value. Seferian-Jenkins has been sidelined the past six games due to his ailing shoulder, but because he practiced last week there appears to be a very good chance he will return this week. It is a little on the...

Week 9 Tight Ends Waiver Wire Must Adds

Pick these guys up! We partnered with RotoBaller to give you accurate and timely waiver wire adds. In turn, they post our podcast to their site (which is centered around setting your weekly lineups). Enjoy! This article originally appeared on RotoBaller.   Week 9 is when the most fantasy football owners around the world will be searching for tight ends on the waiver wire. Not only is Week 9 the only week during the NFL season that six teams are on bye instead of the usual two-to-four, the caliber of the tight ends taking the week off is startling. Seattle’s Jimmy Graham and Kansas City’s Travis Kelce are two of the top five fantasy tight ends going right now, while Detroit’s Eric Ebron is on the verge of becoming a dominant pass catcher as well. Two of the best tight ends available in most leagues are guys that were two of the best a few weeks ago. Another viable free agent at the position is someone fantasy owners should be very familiar with thanks to his solid production over the past decade. This is definitely a week to go with a veteran tight end with your waiver wire pick. Here are three tight ends that Craig Rondinone recommends you think about picking up this week: Week 9 Waiver Wire — Tight Ends (TE) Benjamin Watson (TE, NO ) — 42% OWNED Watson was the top tight end to sign up in my column two weeks ago, but most fantasy owners either ignored him or grabbed him for just one week and then dropped him again. Watson is available in...
