Here’s my Week 16 tight end rankings.

1. Jason Witten @ Arizona (Saturday)
2. Chris Cooley @ Jacksonville
3. Jacob Tamme @ Oakland
4. Vernon Davis @ St. Louis
5. Brent Celek vs. Minnesota
6. Kevin Boss @ Green Bay
7. Marcedes Lewis vs. Washington
8. Greg Olsen vs. New York Jets
9. Benjamin Watson vs. Baltimore
10. Rob Gronkowski vs. Buffalo
11. Kellen Winslow vs. Seattle
12. Owen Daniels @ Denver
13. Jimmy Graham @ Atlanta (Monday)
14. Aaron Hernandez vs. Buffalo
15. Zach Miller vs. Indianapolis
16. Tony Gonzalez vs. New Orleans (Monday)
17. Dustin Keller @ Chicago
18. Ed Dickson @ Cleveland
19. Brandon Pettigrew @ Miami
20. Heath Miller vs. Carolina (Thursday)

Inside the numbers:

  • Jason Witten did not let me down last week, and I’m going back to him as my top option again this week. Everybody else has question marks.
  • Vernon Davis was a letdown, but I expect him to bounce back this week.
  • Brent Celek is averaging 59 yards in his past three games with a pair of touchdowns.
  • Kevin Boss has scored in back-to-back games, and three of his past four.
  • Benjamin Watson had five catches for 47 yards and a touchdown the last time he faced Baltimore.
  • It’s totally a gut thing, but I think this week’s it Rob Gronkowski’s turn to be Brady’s favorite tight end.
  • I’ll have to see Antonio Gates practice before I rank him.

    We didn’t have a good week last week. Brady didn’t do to well and Adrian peterson was inactive and Arrian foster didn’t help the cause either. So this week who you think I should start T. Brady, J. Freeman, RB A. Peterson, A. Foster, D. Brown, WR M. austin, M. wallace, B. Marshall, B. Edwards, D. Branch. Def Tampa bay, NY jets.

    Hey, could you do me a favor and move Jason Witten down in the rankings? The guy I’m playing has him, and you seem to be able to predict the future. Thanks!

    no, no, no…as a Witten owner who was majorly disappointed in him in the first half, Kitna has been the best thing that has ever happened to him and I need him to BLOW THE F UP this week in my Super Bowl! :-)

    Haha Matt. How about he does enough for you to win, but not make Grant lose.

    yeah man…I’d buy that for a dollar! (actually, I am playing for 1100 dollars this week, and as a stay at home dad, that would probably get me a lil extra action with the bread winner this holiday season!) :-)
