We are not exactly left with the who’s who of NFL tight ends, but this is an example of how deep the position has become. Dustin Keller, Heath Miller, and Greg Olsen are three of the more athletic tight ends in the league. All three are solid plays this week. That said, let’s take a look at the tight end rankings for the Conference Championship games.
.
1.  Dustin Keller, New York Jets:  Keller caught just three passes for 15 yards against the Patriots, but had three catches for 42 yards in the win over Indy. He also caught three passes for 19 yards against Pittsburgh in Week 15. I just feel he’ll be the most active of the remaining tight ends.
.
2.  Heath Miller, Pittsburgh Steelers:  Miller scored last week as he caught five passes for 39 yards. He has 14 catches in his past three games for 167 yards and two touchdowns. I’m just afraid he’ll be used more in pass protection, which will limit his targets.
.
3.  Greg Olsen,  Chicago Bears:  Olsen was a stud last week catching three passes for 113 yards, including a 58 yard touchdown to start things off for the Bears. He has ten catches for 93 yards and a score in the two meetings with the Packers. His inconsistency during the season keeps him out of the top two spots.
.
4.  Andrew Quarless, Green Bay Packers:  He has four catches for 41 yards in the Packers two playoff games. He is a bigger risk than the first three, who are basically 1A, 1B, and 1C this week. Of course the way the playoffs have gone for tight ends, perhaps the most unlikely of the bunch will have the best game.

Greg Jennings bounced back, but we still had some no-shows (Anquan Boldin, Mike Wallace). Let’s take a look at the wide receiver rankings for the Conference Championship games.
.
1.  Greg Jennings, Green Bay Packers:  Jennings caught eight passes for 101 yards. He had 18 yards and a score in the first meeting and 97 yards in the second meeting with the Bears. He hasn’t scored in four straight games, a steak that should be snapped this week.
.
2.  Braylon Edwards, New York Jets:  Braylon caught eight passes for 100 yards in the regular season meeting with Pittsburgh. He has six catches for 114 yards and a score in the playoffs. I’m not expecting a monster game, but I think his size will give Pittsburgh a little trouble.
.
3.  Hines Ward, Pittsburgh Steelers:  With Revis looking to slow down Mike Wallace, Ward will get the chance to step up. He’s scored in his past two games, and the Steelers will need his physical play to advance.
.
4.  Santonio Holmes, New York Jets:  Holmes returns to Pittsburgh. There will be a little drama there. He had six catches for 40 yards in the first meeting. I just get the feeling he makes some big plays against his former team.
.
5.  Mike Wallace, Pittsburgh Steelers:  Wallace was held to 30 yards against Baltimore. Things won’t get much easier on Revis Island, especially considering he torched the Jets for 102 yards on seven catches in the first meeting. continue reading »
