Unlike last week, there are actually a bit more tight ends to look at in this week's Week 11 Waiver Wire Tight Ends article. One guy in purple might actually have gained some of the value he lost years ago.
Also make sure to check out the
John Carlson - Vikings (Owned Percentage – ESPN .1%/Yahoo 2%)
Just when you thought Carlson was left behind in the mire that is the waiver wire scrap heap, he pushes himself back into our hearts. With Kyle Rudolph gone, Carlson finally caught his first touchdown since the 2010 season, along with 7 catches and 98 yards. The Vikings' tight end position has fluctuated terribly the last couple years, so tread lightly. Carlson is still just a TE2.
Jordan Reed - Redskins (Owned Percentage – ESPN 64.8%/Yahoo 83%)
How Reed isn't owned in at least 90-95% in all leagues is mind blowing. A full-blown top 10 TE1, Reed racked up another big game with 6 catches for 62 yards and a touchdown against the Vikings Thursday night. This week, he should be picked up in ALL, and I mean ALL, leagues. He's starting to rank amongst guys like Tony Gonzalez and Jason Witten.
Delanie Walker - Titans (Owned Percentage – ESPN 12.5%/Yahoo 9%)
Like other waiver options, I list Walker after his 4/62/1 statline against the Jaguars in Week 10. Mainly used as a blocker, Walker doesn't offer that much upside. However, he has had decent games in the past. He's worth a pickup as a TE2 in deeper leagues.
