Fantasy Football: Week Fourteen Waiver Wire Tight End aka Where Oh Where Did My Gronk Go
It is week fourteen and we are either in do or die mode or your playoffs have started. So welcome to the super, duper hyped playoff edition. Normally, I just list players owned in 50% of leagues or less with a more thorough background. This week, I am changing things up. All your choices on the waiver wire are still bad, but I’m increasing my minimum owned threshold to 75%. That way, I can tease you with players that might almost be available in some leagues, but not your own. Because God hates that you play fantasy football and touch yourself. At this point, it is do or die. So here are my week fourteen waiver wire tight end rankings. But try to remember that I own five cats, so I make questionable life choices.
- Cameron Brate — Owned in 55% of leagues – Cameron Brate has been pretty worthless up until this past week, where he had 2 catches for 39 yards and 2 touchdowns. The good news is that Brate is a much better player when Jameis Winston is throwing him the football. The bad news is he is still a tight end..
- Austin Seferian-Jenkins – Owned in 56% of leagues – Austin Seferian-Jenkins has struggled the last couple of weeks. Luckily for him, he will be playing a Denver Broncos team that has given up the 2nd most fantasy points to tight ends in standard scoring leagues. If you are in win-now mode and need a tight end, this might be the best week fourteen waiver wire option.
- Ricky Seals-Jones – Owned in 28% of leagues – While Ricky Seals-Jones dropped off in production, it is still clear that he is a part of the Arizona Cardinals offense. He will be as good as Blaine Gabbert makes him. If you don’t find that reassuring, it just means that you are still sane.
- Tyler Kroft – Owned in 43% of leagues – Tyler Kroft is one of the favored red zone targets of the Cincinnati Bengals. This would be more impressive if the Bengals were ever in the red zone.
- David Njoku – Owned in 5% of leagues – David Njouku is an athletic specimen that can do few things on a football field that other men can do. Unfortunately, no amount of athletic ability can overcome having DeShone Kizer as your quarterback.
- Cyanide – Owned in 8% of leagues/Should be owned in 100% of leagues – If you are desperate for a tight end and even these players aren’t available, find yourself a second that you can trust and take the honorable way out. You have already brought enough shame on your family by scouring the waiver wire for tight ends. Don’t make it worse by continuing to live.
