This is not a Super Bowl that features elite fantasy tight ends. Heath Miller is one of the best all-around tight ends in the league. He is one of the elite blocking tight ends, and he is very athletic with good hands.
.
On the year he had just 42 catches for 512 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He’s been fairly active in the Steelers two playoff games catching five passes for 39 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens and two passes for 38 yards against the Jets.
.
Andrew Quarless had just 21 catches for 238 yards and a touchdown replacing Jermichael Finley. He caught four passes in the Packers first two playoff games for 41 yards. He was held without a catch against the Bears.
.
If you have the choice between the two, I would strongly recommend Heath Miller.

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.

From John Carlson’s two touchdown performance to Todd Heap’s ten catch day, the unlikely TEs did the damage. Let’s take a look a the tight end rankings for the divisional round.
.
1.  Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots:  Came on strong down the stretch averaging 56 yards and a score in the last four games.
.
2.  Todd Heap, Baltimore Ravens:  Coming off an monster game (ten catches, 108 yards). Should see a lot of check downs against the Steelers.
.
3.  Aaron Hernandez, New England Patriots:  Ripped the Jets for 152 yards and a score on nine catches.
.
4.  Tony Gonzalez, Atlanta Falcons:  Disappointed most of the year, but caught six passes for 51 yards and a score in Week 12 against the Packers.
.
5.  Dustin Keller, New York Jets:  Mixed results against the Pats this year. Led Jets with nine targets against the Colts. Should be active once again.
.
6.  Greg Olsen, Chicago Bears:  Mr. Inconsistent. Didn’t catch a pass in the first meeting with the Seahawks.
.
7.  Heath Miller, Pittsburgh Steelers:  Only had three catches for 43 yards in the two meetings with Baltimore.
.
8.  John Carlson, Seattle Seahawks:  Scored two touchdowns last week, but still managed just 17 yards. He’s not a strong bet to have another big game based on his season totals.
.
9.  Andrew Quarless, Green Bay Packers:  Rodgers does spread the ball around so he has a chance to produce. That also makes it harder to rely on him.

Here are my fantasy football tight end rankings for the Wild Card Round.
.
1.  Jacob Tamme:  Darrell Revis will work on Reggie Wayne, which should mean additional targets for Tamme.
.
2.  Jimmy Graham:  He’s banged up, but has really started to gel with Drew Brees. He’s particularly effective in the red zone where he can use his 6’6″ height.
.
3.  Brent Celek:  Celek started slow, but he finished fairly strong. Look for him to play an important role against the Packers, especially if DeSean Jackson isn’t creating separation.
.
4.  Dustin Keller:  Came up big in last year’s playoff run, including six catches for 63 yards and a touchdown against the Colts. He may not play as large of a role with Santonio Holmes on board, but he’s a decent threat to post a solid fantasy number.
.
5.  Todd Heap:  He’s a little banged up, but had some nice moments this year.
.
6.  Tony Moeaki:  Had a solid rookie season and could be Cassel’s safety net against the Ravens.
.
7.  John Carlson:  Disappointing season. You could do better.
.
8.  Andrew Quarless:  Not much of a factor this year, but his three best games came on the road.
