The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 15 TEs

December 11, 2008 | Thyrl Nelson

Here are the week 15 fantasy tight end power rankings. If you’re fortunate enough to still have something to play for this week, you can still probably find some value on the wire. As the season winds down, this may be the worst year for tight ends overall in recent memory with even the usually strong performers struggling to put up respectable numbers this season.

 

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 15. 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 15 start rankings, that’s where you should look for help with your week 15 lineup decisions.
