Ranking The Top 10 Tight Ends In Week 12 Fantasy NFL Games

One of the needed roles in an NFL team is the tight end. They are part of the offensive side, portraying a cross-breed role of being the offensive lineman or a wide receiver. That said, they are allowed to block the football on the rival side while catching passes from the other players.

And it isn’t just in NFL games that tight ends play a significant role, but also in DFS football games. As the NFL is about to end the playoffs and begin the second round, the fantasy games will become more massive. If you are an avid football bettor, now is the best time to focus more on DFS games because it allows you to earn massive prizes compared to the traditional football betting games.

Winning fantasy football games lies in picking the right tournament, forming a solid strategy, and building a competitive roster. These are what you need to know about Fantasy NFL to bring home the bacon. Hence, if you have decided to pick your quarterbacks and wide receivers, here are the current best tight end options in the Week 12 Playoffs.

Travis Kelce (Kansas City Chiefs)

In Week 11, the Raiders were about to defeat the Chiefs, but the tables have turned during the last quarter of the game. Travis Kelce stepped up and made 127 receiving yards, eight receptions, and one receiving touchdown. As such, he took the top spot in the DFS TE ranking with 12.0 projected fantasy points.

Darren Waller (Las Vegas Raiders)

Earning around 9.8 fantasy points, Raiders’ Darren Waller is one of the most dangerous tight ends you should take heed today. Despite an upset they got as they faced the Chiefs last week, Waller accomplished 88 receiving yards. Aside from that, he also made seven receptions and one receiving touchdown.

Mark Andrews (Baltimore Ravens)

Although the Ravens opened the 2020 NFL season with a good rhythm, they are slowly going out of tune as the playoffs close. They lost to the Titans last week in a 30-24 game run. However, Mark Andrews gave justice to his tight end position that helped them put up a good fight. He made 96-receiving yards with five receptions and one receiving touchdown. That said, his DFS projected points settle at 7.2.

T.J. Hockenson (Detroit Lions)

Taking the 4th rank in DFS TE ranking is T.J. Hockenson, who garnered 7.1 projected points. They had the biggest upset last week when the Panthers swept them to a 20-0 game run. Hockenson hustled hard to earn 68-receiving yards with four receptions. Regardless of a significant loss, T.J. Hockenson is doing well in fantasy football games.

Hunter Henry (Los Angeles Chargers)

The Los Angeles Chargers came in last week in a fully charged force as they defeated the Jets in a 34-28 game run. Hunter Henry did his homework on the offensive side as he registered 48-receiving yards with four receptions and one receiving touchdown. He’s now on the 5th rank in the DFS TE ranking with 6.9 fantasy points.

Dallas Goedert (Philadelphia Eagles)

The Eagles had lost to the Browns last week in a 22-17 game run. However, Dallas Goedert wasn’t that upset after he nailed a great performance as a starting tight end for the team. He accomplished 77-receiving yards with five receptions and one receiving touchdown. As a result, he ranked 6th in the DFS TE with 6.9 fantasy points.

Rob Gronkowski (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

After a surprise transfer he made to the Bucs from the Pats, Rob Gronkowski shows what a real tight end should look like. His team is currently the second seed of the NFC South. Despite losing to the Rams in Week 11, Gron had still made a reliable performance. He made 25-receiving yards with two receptions, making his fantasy projected points settle at 6.5.

Noah Fant (Denver Broncos)

Sitting at the 8th rank in DFS TE ranking with 6.5 fantasy points, Noah Fant is another excellent tight end to pick. The Broncos defeated the Dolphins last week in a 20-13 game run. Channeling a true tight end hero, Fant made 55-receiving yards with four receptions.

Evan Engram (New York Giants)

The Giants aren’t up for Week 11 games. However, in Week 10, they defeated the Eagles, which made their record a bit stronger. Evan Engram impressed the football fans on the offensive side after nailing 347 receiving yards with 38 receptions and one receiving touchdown. That said, his projected fantasy points settle at 6.4.

Hayden Hurst (Atlanta Falcons)

Filling-up the final spot in the DFS TE ranking this week is Hayden Hurst. He earned 5.9 projected fantasy points amidst getting defeated by the Saints last week. The Falcons will face the Raiders in Week 12, and Hurst will indeed step up.


One of the wisest things you can do to win most of your DFS football games is to form a reliable team. The only way to fulfill that is to find the best players in the league. Together with choosing your QBs and WRs, considering the top TEs above can help you emerge victoriously.
