Here’s my Week 11 tight end rankings.

1. Jacob Tamme @ New England
2. Zach Miller (OAK) @ Pittsburgh
3. Vernon Davis vs. Tampa Bay
4. Kellen Winslow @ San Francisco
5. Dustin Keller vs. Houston
6. Tony Gonzalez @ St. Louis
7.  Jason Witten vs. Detroit
8. Todd Heap @ Carolina
9. Marcedes Lewis vs. Cleveland
10. Brandon Pettigrew @ Dallas
11. Chris Cooley @ Tennessee
12. Visanthe Shiancoe vs. Green Bay
13. Aaron Hernandez vs. Indianapolis
14. Rob Gronkowski vs. Indianapolis
15. Brent Celek vs. New York Giants
16. Greg Olsen @ Miami
17. Benjamin Watson @ Jacksonville
18. Randy McMichael vs. Denver
19. Jermaine Gresham vs. Buffalo
20. Kevin Boss @ Philadelphia


Inside the numbers:

  • Antonio Gates still isn’t practicing, and given his Monday Night game, it’s too much of a risk. Only keep him in your lineup if you have Randy McMichael on your roster to use in case Gates can’t go.
  • I’m more worried about Tamme’s back than I am about the Patriots stopping him.
  • Out of respect to Jacksonville’s Zach Miller’s big game, I will specify which Zach Miller I’m ranking. Miller makes a strong play against Pittsburgh, who was burned by tight end Rob Gronkowski for three scores last week.
  • Jason Witten was not in Jason Garrett’s plans last week. I’m hesitant to start him.
  • Both New England tight ends should be heavily involved as Brady looks to keep Peyton on the sidelines.
  • Tony Moeaki will likely miss the game because of a concussion so he was taken off the list. I slid Aaron Hernandez-Jermaine Gresham up a slot and added Kevin Boss.
