Fantasy Fox: Top 30 PPR tight ends for NFL Week 12

November 21, 2014

Here are my top 30 tight ends for Week 12, citing Points Per Reception leagues only.

This countdown doesn't lean on a particular stat. It's merely an educated best guess of which tight ends will tally the best combination of receptions, total yards, touchdowns and targets for the NFL's 12th weekend.

Note: These rankings come after the Raiders knocked off the Chiefs for their first victory of the year (Thursday) -- while also snapping a 16-game losing skid (dating back to last year).

Regardless of how these rankings shake out every week, it shouldn't supersede two important factors that go into regular lineup consideration:

1. Always play your healthy superstars.
2. Always ride your gut instinct over a certain guru's analysis (read: plausible deniability).
