Week 15 of the 2011 NFL season picks back up today with two games already finished. The Falcons-Jaguars and Cowboys-Bucs contests got the week going, but we now have a full slate of Sunday games. Thursday and Saturday were relatively quiet days for tight ends, with Jason Witten leading the way with 77 receiving yards. It has been an odd season for tight ends. Rob Gronkowski is dominating while traditionally solid tight ends like Vernon Davis and Heath Miller are struggling.
It is worth noting that Scott Chandler and Ben Watson are both out this week. If you are looking for some sleepers, Vikings TE Visanthe Shianco is an intriguing option. He and Ponder have not been on the same page every week, but there remains some decent upside.
Another decent option would be Raiders TE Kevin Boss. He is coming off a 43-yard, one touchdown performance and with the Raiders injury issues, he has some modest upside. Denarius Moore could be returning on Sunday, which could open up the middle of the field a bit more for Boss.
