Fantasy TE PPR Rankings Week 15: Who to start, sit at tight end in fantasy football

Our Fantasy Week 15 TE PPR rankings will follow the same process we’ve had all season – tight ends studs, if there’s anything like that this year, stay at the top, but we have to rank the guys at the top. exit. ’em sit’ em bubble based on pairings and previous use to complete the central part of the pecking order. As always, use them to decide who to start with during this must-have week.

It’s an interesting week as all options are (hopefully) on the table, but at this point in the season, tight ends breakouts are apparently over. That said, Ricky Seals-Jones has returned from injury and, in PPR leagues, he could be a sneaky TE1 for the rest of the season. This week, he will face the Eagles, who are the worst defense against fantasy tight ends. People quickly forget that RSJ was productive earlier this season when Logan Thomas was out, so he’s worth taking as a driver with more favorable matchups ahead. For now, we classify RSJ as a high-end TE2 because ultimately it might fail (as it did in week 14), but its advantage is in the TE1 range.

Among the players in the start or sit bubble, we like Tyler Higbee (vs. Seahawks), Austin Hooper (vs. Raiders), Hunter Henry (@ Colts), James O’Shaughnessy (vs. Texans) and perhaps Gerald Everett (@ Rams) . All of those defenses have yielded a lot of production to the TEs this year. (Update: Higbee was placed on the reserve / COVID list on Monday and is in danger of missing the Week 15 game.)

Henry has been the most productive option, but a few quiet performances could scare people out of his TD or bankruptcy profile. However, the Colts have the sixth worst defense against TEs when it comes to fantasy points allowed, so don’t be shy of him here. O’Shaughnessy is best suited for PPR leagues, and since the Texans are in the top 10 worst defenses against tight ends, we think he has a safe PPR floor. Everett and Hooper aren’t necessarily a boom or bust because they rarely do, but they could give you something this week.

He’s probably starting Kyle Pitts (@ 49ers) over some of the guys mentioned above, but it’s hard to continue to see him as a must-start option given the lack of success in fantasy. The Niners allowed TJ Hockenson out in Week 1, but since they are allowing fewer than six fantasy points per game to the TEs. We thought Noah Fant (against the Bengals) might be a must-have stud in the preseason, but he hasn’t even been reliable in favorable matchups, so how can we trust him here? It may not be his fault, but this is fantasy football, and it has been downright mediocre lately, as Albert Okwuegbunam has won more playing time. We would consider playing all the guys listed as favorable streamers on Fant.

Also leave Cole Kmet (vs. Vikings), Tyler Conklin (@ Bears), CJ Uzomah (@ Broncos) and Colts tight ends (vs. Patriots). These guys have produced only a few occasions, and the match numbers indicate that this will not be one of those places for success.

PPR formats give some closed ends safer flooring, but as always, trust your posts and don’t overthink things. As frustrating as even Travis Kelce (@ Chargers) has been, it’s a must-start. The same goes for Darren Waller (knee) and TJ Hockenson (hand) if they return to action. Hopefully, not everyone will have to sift through the unreliable TEs in the middle of our rankings, but in a must-do week like this, you’ll likely exhaust all options.

We’ll update these TE PPR rankings throughout the week, so check back for the latest player movement and analysis. For an individual analysis of key TEs, click here.
