The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 14 TEs

December 04, 2008 | Thyrl Nelson

There hasn’t been a lot of excitement surrounding fantasy tight ends this season. Even the old reliables have either fallen back to the pack, or in some cases out of it altogether. As with most of the other positions in this crazy season, there’s probably plenty of value available on the waiver wire too.

 

Keep in mind that the power rankings, listed here, are based on year to date performance and not a reflection of your best options for week 14. Just below the power rankings are match up previews advising who should be better or worse than usual this week, based on their opponents. At the bottom, are the week 14 start rankings, that’s where you should look for help with your week 14 lineup decisions.

They were gotten using the Fantasy Flavor secret formula, and have their formulary numbers in parentheses, the lower the better.
