2011 has been the Year of the Tight End in the NFL. Topping them all has been Rob Gronkowski, who has exploded into one of the best receiving threats in the game. He and Aaron Hernandez have formed a formidable duo at the position. Jimmy Graham is also a fresh-face in the tight end ranks. Some grizzled vets also had good years like Tony Gonzalez and Jason Witten.
Our partner, numberfire.com, has provided us with projections for 15 top-rated tight ends in Week 16. They determine their projections by feeding the stats and matchups into the computer, and the computer responds with its best estimate.
These projections are live and may change before Sunday's action. Come back over the next few days until game time to see where your players stand.
* Fantasy Points Projections are based on the Yahoo! and ESPN default scoring settings. Quarterbacks are scored with 1 point for every 25 passing yards, and 4 points for every touchdown. For running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, they are scored with 1 point for every 10 total yards, and 6 points for every touchdown. This is a non-PPR projection.
