Week 14 Fantasy PPR Rankings: Tight end

Sporting News

The tight end position could be bolstered just in time for the fantasy football playoffs by the returns from injury of Gerald Everett (knee), Austin Hooper (knee), and Evan Engram (foot), but even without them, the Week 14 PPR TE rankings are pretty strong because of solid players and sleepers with favorable matchups.

Of course, there's Jack Doyle, the rare free agent add who actually delivered on his hype. He takes on the second-worst defense against tight ends, the Buccaneers, and should continue his high-volume PPR ways whether T.Y. Hilton (calf) is back or not. Then you have Vance McDonald against the Cardinals. After Tyler Higbee set his career-high for receiving yards in the first half against Arizona in Week 13, you can't consider sitting McDonald unless you have one of the top-tier studs.

Another good matchup comes in the form of the Dolphins for Ryan Griffin. Miami hasn't actually been terrible against tight ends this season, but the overall possibility of points for the Jets (assuming they rebound from a stinky Week 13) mean Griffin and his usual red-zone looks should pay off for you. And PPR owners should also have taken notice of Dallas Goedert by now, who, even with the return of Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor saw at least six targets for the third straight week. He'll take on a Giants defense vulnerable to allowing big offensive days in Week 14.

WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver

Other names to consider this week include one of our favorites, Jonnu Smith, against the Raiders, along with Mike Gesicki at the Jets and Higbee versus the Seahawks. Gesicki has turned into Ryan Fitzpatrick's second-favorite target, while Higbee has filled in admirably for Everett. Smith benefits from the placement of Delanie Walker (ankle) on Injured Reserve. All could start at TE for you in a pinch and be solid streaming options (along with the better ones mentioned above) if Hooper and Engram remain out.
