Week 7 – TE Rankings


Fred Davis @ Panthers – 

With Chris Cooley forced out of action due to a broken index finger, Fred Davis took over as the top target in the Redskins offense with six receptions for 95 yards, against the Eagles. Davis started the season hot when Cooley was playing limited snaps the first few weeks, but as his role expanded, Davis’s production tailed off.

Now, Cooley is expected to miss up to six weeks while recovering from surgery on Monday, and that makes Davis a weekly starter, once again. Heading to Carolina, the Redskins should continue to use Davis as one of the better options in the offense fantasy owners should view this talented pass catcher as a top four tight end this week.

Jermichael Finley @ Vikings –

Upset with Jermichael Finley’s production up to this point? Outside of his three touchdown performance against the Bears, Finley has been a disappointment this year, but I would still go with him weekly, unless you have a tight end that has been productive.

Finley will post respectable stats by years end, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he has a solid second half. Still a top five talent, Finley is likely too valuable of a player to place on your bench during the bye weeks.

Lance Kendricks @ Cowboys –

Look for Lance Kendricks to be one of the top targeted pass catchers going forward, even with the recent addition of Brandon Lloyd, because when he’s play well, he’s a nice target for Sam Bradford. Kendricks looked lost and unconfident early in the season, but the Rams clearly made his activity a priority over the bye week, and he stepped up with four receptions for 71 yards.

As talented as the Cowboys defense is, they were abused by the Patriots tight ends last week. Look for the Rams to throw the football most of the game as they will likely fall behind early. Kendricks is a decent start this week if your starter is down for a bye week, or you’re tired of playing them due to ineffective play.

    Who do you think is the better kicker in the long run?? Bailey or Rackers.

  • Sean Douglas

    I still believe in Rackers as it takes time for a kicker to build up confidence in his coaching staff for attempts greater than 40 yards out. Rackers has that, but with Andre Johnson down, this team is struggling on the road.

    I would still go with Rackers in the long run.
