Fantasy football owners are now learning how important the tight end position is on their fantasy football rosters. The loss of Dallas Clark devastated fantasy football owners that did not jump on Jacob Tamme. This may be the most important week when it comes to choosing a starting tight end in week 11 of fantasy football. Antonio Gates has a toe injury and an injury to his foot and Zach Miller is also out with a foot injury. Gates currently ranks first and Miller third among fantasy football tight ends.
Three Fantasy Football Tight Ends to Start in Week 11 of Fantasy Football
Vernon Davis: San Francisco 49ers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers come to San Francisco with confidence and an attitude. They will be keeping Michael Crabtree and the other San Francisco 49ers wide receivers in check. This will allow Vernon Davis some space underneath when the wide outs stretch the field. Look for Davis to tally some yards after the catch and have a big fantasy football day at home. Start Vernon Davis on all fantasy football teams.
Dustin Keller: New York Jets
Dustin Keller has been Mark Sanchez favorite target all season and last weekend in Cleveland the Cleveland Browns held him to three catches for only 25 yards. Keller ranks in the top five among fantasy football tight ends this season and has the opportunity to end the season ranked in the top three. Start Dustin Keller in all fantasy football leagues unless one of the top five ranked fantasy football tight ends is on the roster.
Tony Gonzalez: Atlanta Falcons
The Atlanta Falcons are hurtling towards the NFL Playoffs and Tony Gonzalez is on of the leaders on this team. Matt Ryan has limited his targets of Gonzalez in the last few games. Ryan will be looking for Gonzalez over the middle in this game against the St Louis Rams and they will still have to get away from the St Louis Rams best defensive player, linebacker James Laurinaitis. Gonzalez is a veteran and he will show up big in this let down spot for the Atlanta Falcons. Start Tony Gonzalez on all fantasy football teams unless one of the top six ranked fantasy football tight ends is on the roster
Three Fantasy Football Tight Ends to Sit in Week 11 of Fantasy Football
Kellen Winslow: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Kellen Winslow currently ranks 15th among fantasy football tight ends heading into the 11th week of fantasy football. Winslow is one of the most inconsistent tight ends in the fantasy football and should only be a back up. If he is the number one tight end on a fantasy football roster he should be replaced as soon as possible. Sit Kellen Winslow on all fantasy football teams unless the next best option is ranked 20th or less in the fantasy football rankings.
Jeremy Shockey: New Orleans Saints
Jeremy Shockey is currently the number one tight end target of Drew Brees, which increases his value on fantasy football rosters. Injuries have a tendency to either slow Shockey or knock him out of the line up and with a game against the St Louis Rams on the docket, Shockey will not have much interest in sacrificing his body. Look for Shockey to either be a scratch this weekend or see limited time. Sit Jeremy Shockey in most fantasy football leagues unless the next best option is ranked 14th or less in the fantasy football rankings.
Rob Gronkowski: New England Patriots
Rob Gronkowski had a career day last weekend against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Three touchdowns in one game will get him a lot of attention from the Indianapolis Colts. Odds are if Gronkowski was on the bench for a fantasy football owner they will be tempted to start him this weekend. Tom Brady loves to spread the ball around and he will use the added attention to Gronkowski to free up another receiver. Sit Rob Gronkowski in most fantasy football leagues unless the next best option is ranked 15th or less in the fantasy football rankings.
