With another exciting week of football under our belts, here are the Lester’s Legends 2014 Week 4 fantasy football tight end rankings.
.
1. Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints
Graham is averaging 84.7 yards and 0.7 touchdowns. Look for a big performance against the Dallas Cowboys.
.
2. Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots
Gronk is averaging just 38.7 yards through three games, but he has scored twice. Eventually he’s going to turn in a performance that will merit his draft position. Perhaps as soon as this week against the Kansas City Chiefs.
.
3. Martellus Bennett, Chicago Bears
Bennett is averaging 53.7 yards and 1.3 touchdowns. He has scored in all three games. Bennett faces the Green Bay Packers.
.
4. Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers
Olsen is averaging 74.7 yards and 0.7 touchdowns. He should remain hot against the Baltimore Ravens.
.
5. Antonio Gates, San Diego Chargers
Gates came back to Earth last week, but is still averaging 61.7 yards and a touchdown per game. He should shine against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags have allowed 306 yards and 2.7 touchdowns per game. Four of their eight passing touchdowns allowed went to tight ends.
.
6. Delanie Walker, Tennessee Titans 
Walker is averaging 77.7 yards and 0.7 touchdowns per game. He faces the Indianapolis Colts.
.
7. Niles Paul, Washington Redskins 
Paul is averaging 84.3 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game.  He’s been heavily involved in the offense, which should continue this week against the New York Giants.
.
8. Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles
Ertz is averaging 59 yards and 0.3 touchdowns. He was quiet last week against the Washington Redskins, but should be back in the mix against the San Francisco 49ers.
.
9. Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys
Witten has just 95 yards through three games, but he’s due to break out against the New Orleans Saints. Last year Witten averaged 80.8 yards at home and 25.6 yards on the road. Look for him to get back on track.
.
10. Larry Donnell, New York Giants
Donnell is averaging 60.7 yards and 0.3 touchdowns. He’ll face the Redskins this week.
.

.
With another exciting week of football under our belts, here are the Lester’s Legends 2014 Week 4 fantasy football running back rankings.
.
1. Matt Forte, Chicago Bears
Forte is averaging 93.7 total yards per game. He should run wild on the Green Bay Packers. The Pack have allowed 156 rushing yards and 2.7 rushing touchdowns per game. Forte averaged  168 total yards and a pair of touchdowns against Green Bay last year.
.
2. DeMarco Murray, Dallas Cowboys
Murray is averaging 149 total yards and a touchdown per game. He faces the New Orleans Saints in what should be a shootout. The Saints have allowed 101.3 rushing yards per game despite facing the Atlanta Falcons and the Minnesota Vikings sans Adrian Peterson.
.
3. Le’veon Bell, Pittsburgh Steelers
Bell is averaging 153.7 total yards per game. He takes on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home. The Bucs have allowed 125.3 yards and 1.3 touchdowns per game on the ground.
.
4. Eddie Lacy, Green Bay Packers
Lacy continues to struggle averaging just 50.3 total yards per game without a touchdown. He should get right against the Chicago Bears. He averaged 115.5 total yard and a touchdown last year against them.
.
5. LeSean McCoy, Philadelphia Eagles
Shady is averaging 79.7 yards with just one touchdown through three games. He hasn’t exactly lived up to his expectations. With a date with the San Francisco 49ers on the horizon, your expectations for McCoy should be lowered. That said, he’s still a must-start.
.
6. Rashad Jennings, New York Giants
Jennings is averaging 127 total yards and 0.7 touchdowns through three games. The Washington Redskins have been tough against the run, but Jennings can produce in the passing game as well.
.
7. Arian Foster, Houston Texans
Foster has 270 total yards and a touchdown, but a hamstring injury forced him to miss last week. If he’s healthy he should roll be effective against the Buffalo Bills. Just have a backup plan in place.
.
8. Knile Davis, Kansas City Chiefs
Davis has 237 total yards and three touchdowns over the past two weeks while filling in for Jamaal Charles. As long as Charles’ ankle keeps him out again, Davis should be solid against the New England Patriots.
.
9. Lamar Miller, Miami Dolphins
Miller had 132 total yards last week against the Chiefs. He should stay hot against the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders have allowed 158.7 rushing yards per game.
.
10. Alfred Morris, Washington Redskins
Morris is averaging 84.3 yards and 0.7 touchdowns. He takes aim at the New York Giants this week. Morris had 136 total yards and a touchdown in two games against the G-Men last year.
.
11. Donald Brown, San Diego Chargers
Brown had 89 total yards last week and injuries have presented him with an opportunity to be the feature back. He faces Jacksonville Jaguars’ league-worst run defense. They have allowed 160 yards and 1.3 touchdowns per game on the ground.
.
12. Khiry Robinson, New Orleans Saints
Robinson had 69 yards last week as the lead back last week against the Vikings. He should have a solid game against the Cowboys. They have allowed 110 rushing yards per game.
.
13. C.J. Spiller, Buffalo Bills
Spiller is averaging 68 total yards and 0.7 touchdowns. He faces the Houston Texans. Spiller is due for a big game.
.
14. Ahmad Bradshaw, Indianapolis Colts
Bradshaw is averaging 88 total yards and a touchdown per game. He faces the Tennessee Titans. The Titans have allowed 134.3 yards and 1.3 touchdowns per game. Bradshaw has been extremely effective in the passing game.
.
15. Pierre Thomas, New Orleans Saints
Thomas is averaging 57.3 total yards and scored his first touchdown of the year last week. He should be very active in the passing game against the Cowboys this week.
.

.
1. Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints
Brees is averaging 287.7 yards and 1.7 touchdowns per game. He has yet to have a monster game. That could change against the Dallas Cowboys. The Boys have allowed 250.3 yards and a pair of touchdowns per game to Colin Kaepernick, Jake Locker and Austin Davis. Brees is obviously a couple notches ahead of that trio.
.
2. Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons
Matty Ice is averaging 321.7 yards and 2.3 touchdowns per game. The Minnesota Vikings have improved defensively, but look for Ryan and Julio Jones to have a big day.
.
3. Nick Foles, Philadelphia Eagles
Foles is averaging 326 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Eagles offense continues to shine. He faces the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners have already allowed seven passing touchdowns.
.
4. Philip Rivers, San Diego Chargers
Rivers is averaging 259.3 yards and a pair of touchdown passes. He should remain hot against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags have allowed 306 yards and 2.7 touchdowns per game.
.
5. Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts
Luck is averaging 304 yards and three touchdowns per game. He has added 54 yards and a score with his feet. He struggled last year against the Tennessee Titans. Look for that to change this year as Luck takes another step forward into the elite quarterback territory.
.
6. Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions
Stafford is averaging 294.3 yards and a touchdown per game. He faces the New York Jets. The Jets have allowed seven passing touchdowns.
.
7. Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears
Cutler is averaging 250 yards per game, but has thrown eight touchdowns through three games. He should put up big numbers in a shootout with the Packers.
.
8. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers
Rodgers is averaging 232.3 yards and 1.7 touchdowns per game, but he had 346 yards and three touchdowns against the New York Jets. That leaves a pair of disappointing games against the Seattle Seahawks and the Detroit Lions. He should be more effective against the Chicago Bears.
.
9. Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys
Romo is averaging 224.7 yards and 1.3 touchdowns per game. He faces the Saints in what should be a shootout. The Saints have allowed 278.3 passing yards per game.

Cousins is averaging 338.5 yards and 2.5 touchdowns since taking over for Robert Griffin III. He faces the New York Giants. The G-Men have allowed 258.3 passing yards per game.

Marshall is averaging 59.5 yards and a pair of touchdowns per game. Jay Cutler continues to favor Marshall over all of his weapons. He faces the New York Jets. The Jets have already allowed five passing touchdowns.
.
5. Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers
Nelson is averaging 146 yards and a touchdown after torching the Jets for 209 yards. He’ll look to keep rolling against Detroit.
.
6. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Thomas has 110 yards and a touchdown through two games. He’s capable of putting up big number, even if he’s facing the Seattle Seahawks.
.
7. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers
Brown is averaging 103 yards and 0.5 touchdowns. He’s third in the league in receiving yards.
.
8. Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers
Cobb has 97 yards and three touchdowns. He’ll look to get in the end zone for the third straight week as he faces the Lions.
.
9. Julian Edelman, New England Patriots 
Edelman is averaging 103 total yards and 0.5 touchdowns. Tom Brady is off to a slow start, but Edelman has been solid. Things should pick up for the Pats against the Oakland Raiders.
.
10. Jeremy Maclin, Philadelphia Eagles 
Maclin is averaging 71 yards and a touchdown for the Eagles. He’s already been targeted 21 times. Look for plenty of action against the Washington Redskins.
.
11. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
V-Jax has just 87 yards on the year, but should break out against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons have allowed 317.5 yards per game. He had 303 yards and three touchdowns in two meetings with Atlanta last year.
.
12. Cordarrelle Patterson, Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings have to find a way to move the ball without Adrian Peterson. Patterson is the type of athlete that should be leaned on. He has 102 rushing yards and 82 receiving yards. He’ll be a big part of the game plan against the New Orleans Saints.
.
13. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans
Johnson is averaging 83.5 yards per game. He is a physical presence that should dominate the New York Giants.
.
14. Percy Harvin, Seattle Seahawks
Harvin has 150 total yards and a touchdown. The dual-threat will be called up to keep up with the Broncos.
.
15. Pierre Garcon, Washington Redskins
Garcon has 89 yards in two weeks, but should be more active this week against the Eagles. The Eagles have allowed five passing touchdowns.
.
16. Emmanuel Sanders, Denver Broncos
Sanders has 185 yards through two games. Peyton’s new toy is a decent option despite facing Seattle.
.
17. Keenan Allen, San Diego Chargers 
Allen has 92 yards through two games. After facing the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle, the Buffalo Bills will be a welcome sight. The Bills have allowed 275.5 passing yards per game.

Wallace has 137 yards and a pair of touchdowns through two games. He takes on the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs have allowed five passing scores.

With another exciting week of football under our belts, here are the Lester’s Legends 2014 Week 3 fantasy football tight end rankings.
.
1. Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints
Last week I said Graham was due for a pair of touchdowns and he delivered. He’s just that good. Graham is averaging 100 yards and a touchdown.  Look for another dominating performance this week against the Minnesota Vikings.
.
2. Julius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Thomas “only” caught one touchdown pass last week, giving him four scores on the year. They will use his size and speed to combat the Seattle Seahawks’ physical defense.
.
3. Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots
Gronk had a quiet game against the Vikings, but Tom Brady only had to throw 22 times as the Pats rolled the Vikes. Look for a return to the end zone against the Oakland Raiders.
.
4. Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers
Olsen is averaging 77.5 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. He faces the Pittsburgh Steelers. They allowed a pair of touchdowns last week to Owen Daniels.
.
5. Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles 
Ertz is averaging 81.5 yards and 0.5 touchdowns as he continues to break out as a high-end tight end. He’ll look to keep that going against the Washington Redskins.
.
6. Antonio Gates, San Diego Chargers
The reports of Antonio Gates’ demise have been greatly exaggerated. Gates has 177 yards and three touchdowns after two weeks. He should keep on trucking against the Buffalo Bills
.
7. Martellus Bennett, Chicago Bears 
Bennett has 107 yards on the season and has scored both weeks. Jay Cutler spreads the ball around and Bennett should be solid again against the New York Jets.
.
8. Delanie Walker, Tennessee Titans 
Walker had 37 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 before exploding for 142 yards and a score last week. He’s earned a fantasy start against the Cincinnati Bengals.
.
9. Vernon Davis, San Francisco 49ers
Davis has 83 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the year. Monitor his ankle, but it looks like he avoided a serious injury.
.
10. Dennis Pitta, Baltimore Ravens
Pitta has 113 yards in two games, but was vultured by Owen Daniels for a pair of scores last week. The cream rises to the top so look for the more talented Pitta to get his love against the Cleveland Browns.
.
