Here are the Lester’s Legends tight end rankings for the AFC and NFC Conference Championship Games of the 2014-15 NFL Playoffs.
.
1. Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots
Rob Gronkowski averaged 74.9 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game. He had 108 yards and a touchdown in the playoff win over the Baltimore Ravens. Gronk had 71 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting with the Indianapolis Colts.
.
2. Coby Fleener, Indianapolis Colts
Coby Fleener averaged 48.4 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game, but finished the year averaging 61.4 yards and 0.8 touchdowns in the final five games of the regular season. He is averaging 33.5 yards per game in the Colts’ two playoff wins, but he ripped the New England Patriots for 144 yards during the regular season.
.
3. Dwayne Allen, Indianapolis Colts
Dwayne Allen averaged 30.4 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He had 30 yards in both playoff wins over the Cincinnati Bengals and the Denver Broncos. Allen scored a touchdown against Denver. He is not going to overwhelm you with receiving yards, but he’s a solid bet to get in the end zone.
.
4. Luke Wilson, Seattle Seahawks
Luke Wilson averaged 24.1 yards and 0.2 touchdowns per game on the year. He exceeded expectations last week with 68 yards and a score in the playoff win over the Carolina Panthers. Wilson had one yard in the first meeting with the Green Bay Packers so don’t expect a repeat playoff performance.
.
5. Andrew Quarless, Green Bay Packers
Andrew Quarless averaged 20.2 yards and 0.2 touchdowns per game during the regular season. He caught four passes for 31 yards and a touchdown in the playoff win over the Dallas Cowboys. His touchdown was his first in two months. Quarless did have 26 yards in the first meeting with the Seattle Seahawks.

Greg Olsen averaged 63 yards and 0.4 touchdowns per game during the regular season. He had 37 yards in the playoff win over the Arizona Cardinals. Olsen has a tough matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.

4.Coby Fleener, Indianapolis Colts
Coby Fleener averaged 48.4 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game, but finished the year averaging 61.4 yards and 0.8 touchdowns in the final five games of the regular season. He was quiet in the playoff win over the Cincinnati Bengals, but should return to form against the Denver Broncos.

Greg Olsen averaged 63 yards and 0.4 touchdowns per game. His 1,008 yards were a career-high and second only to Rob Gronkowski (1,124 yards) among tight ends. Olsen faces the Arizona Cardinals. The Cards allowed 259.5 passing yards per game.

Coby Fleener averaged 48.4 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. He finished the year averaging 61.4 yards and 0.8 touchdowns in the final five games. Fleener had 64 yards in the first meeting with the Cincinnati Bengals.
.
3. Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys
Jason Witten averaged 43.9 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game, but averaged 69.3 yards in the final three games of the year. Despite having a down year Witten is capable of turning in a decent performance against the Detroit Lions.
.
4. Heath Miller, Pittsburgh Steelers
Heath Miller averaged 47.6 yard per game on the year. He averaged 59 yards per game in the final three weeks of the season. He faces the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens ranked 24th with 248.7 passing yards allowed per game.

.
6. Dwayne Allen, Indianapolis Colts
Dwayne Allen averaged 30.4 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He’s dealing with a knee injury, but should be able to go against the Bengals. When healthy he’s one of the premier red zone targets at his position.
.
7. Jermaine Gresham, Cincinnati Bengals
Jermaine Gresham averaged 30.7 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game. He caught 10 passes for 48 yards in the first meeting with the Indianapolis Colts.
.
8. Eric Ebron, Detroit Lions
Eric Ebron averaged 19.1 yards per game. He’s not a reliable fantasy option.

Here are the Lester’s Legends tight end rankings for the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs.
.
1. Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints
Jimmy Graham was held out of the end zone last week and managed just 44 yards. He averaged 75.9 yards and a touchdown per game during the regular season. He had 42 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting with the Seattle Seahawks.
.
2. Vernon Davis, San Francisco 49ers
Vernon Davis averaged 56.7 yards and 0.9 touchdowns per game during the regular season. The fun continued with 37 yards and a touchdown last week against the Green Bay Packers. He’s averaging 97.2 yards and a touchdown in his past six playoff games.
.
3. Julius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Julius Thomas averaged 56.3 yards and 0.9 touchdowns per game. He averaged 72.5 yards and 0.5 touchdowns in two meetings with the San Diego Chargers.
.
4. Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers
Greg Olsen averaged 51 yards and 0.4 touchdowns per game. With Steve Smith out or limited, Olsen will a primary target for Cam Newtwon.
.
5. Coby Fleener, Indianapolis Colts
Coby Fleener is inconsistent, but he had 46 yards and a touchdown last week against the Kansas City Chiefs. If the New England Patriots look to take T.Y. Hilton out of the equation, Fleener could see an uptick in value.
.
6. Antonio Gates, San Diego Chargers
Antonio Gates averaged 54.5 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game during the regular season. He had just one catch for five yards last week, but I expect a heavier workload against the Broncos.
.
7. Zach Miller, Seattle Seahawks
Zach Miller had 86 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting with the New Orleans Saints. I wouldn’t expect a repeat, but he could produce a decent game.
.
8. Ladarius Green, San Diego Chargers
Ladarius Green scored a touchdown last week. He’s not a great play, but could play a factor.
