Fantasy Football Week 12 tight end rankings: Who can you actually trust this week?

A few weeks ago, it looked like the tight position for fantasy football might be changing. Oh sure, it wasn’t great, but at least it seemed like there might be enough useful, interesting options for everyone in your standard 12-team league to at least not have to worry about who they start.

However, things didn’t quite go as planned. Tyler Higbee has had way more bad games than good lately, David Njoku has struggled with injuries and Greg Dulcic hasn’t been able to build on his early success. Cole Kmet had some good games but had problems in week 11 and may now have to play without Justin Fields in week 12 (and possibly beyond).

Oh, and of course, Kyle Pitts got into the IR on Monday with a sprained knee and he could miss the whole season. Whatever you say about Pitts and the disappointing season he struggled in, he remains in my top 12 at that position on a weekly basis because there just aren’t many tight ends that have that much upside potential on a weekly basis.

That leaves, by my reckoning, six tight ends that I feel pretty confident in week 12, and then a pretty wide variety of touchdown or bust options like Njoku, Higbee, Kmet, Juwan Johnson and others. This week, any of these guys could lose in a 15-point game, but they could also each catch two passes for 15 yards. If you have one of the top six, you’re all set; if you don’t, you should probably be looking for a raise on the failure wire.
