Week 16: Start These 5 Tight Ends

Week 16: Start These 5 Tight Ends
By Jessica Kleinschmidt on December 22, 2012

Another week in the books for the National Football League.  It’s playoff season and I bet you are all wondering what you are going to do with your Thursday and Monday nights from here on out.  I suggest heavy drinking.  Mainly to those who did not make the playoffs.  You know the drill, you listen to my advice, take the advice and rave about me.  Good luck.

1. Jason Witten, Dallas

It’s Witten in the stars to start Jason as your tight end this week.  He is six catches away from setting the single-season record for receptions by a tight end.  Witten has landed 923 yards and has a career-high 97 catches in 14 games.  Make sure he is in your lineup.  It’s only Championship season after all.  Witten will give you 12 points.

2. Aaron Hernandez, New England

There is no way you are surprised Hernandez is in this top five.  He has a respectful 426 yards and five touchdowns under his belt.  He was limited at practice recently, however don’t think twice about starting him.  He always pulls through.  12 points.

3. Greg Olsen, Carolina

Besides having a quit envious mane, Olsen has been performing well lately.  He caught five balls for 56 yards last week in the win over the Chargers adding to his already impressive 747 yards on the season.  They face the Raiders this week and he should put up a good game for fantasy owners.  11 points.

4. Dennis Pitta

Someone needs to tell Flacco to throw the ball to Pitta more.  Maybe Cam Cameron?  Sorry, it’s too soon.  Dennis caught seven passes for 125 yards and two touchdowns last week.  He faces the Giants this week in what should be a great game.  Definitely start him and expect him to give you 10 points.

5. Jermichael Finley

Finley caught five of six target for 61 yards at Chicago last week.  He has been consistent in the 60 yard range in three of the past five games.  With 525 yards for the season, Finley should be a starter for your team this week.  Green Bay may not want him on their team, but you should leave him be.  10 points for Finley.
