Unlike wide receivers, there usually isn't as many tight ends to choose from on your waiver wire this deep in the season. But as this week's Week 12 Waiver Wire Tight Ends article will show, there are still 2 guys to keep an eye on.
Delanie Walker - Titans (Owned Percentage – ESPN 12%/Yahoo 21%) Walker is another player whose fantasy value has been helped by a change at quarterback. With Ryan Fitzpatrick under center, Walker has put up TE1 numbers after totaling 14 catches, 153 yards and 2 touchdowns in the last 2 weeks. Fitz has been checking down to Walker a lot, which makes him even more valuable in PPR leagues. Walker could turn into a low-end TE1 facing the Raiders in Week 12.
Mychal Rivera - Raiders (Owned Percentage – ESPN .5%/Yahoo 0%) I might be pushing it with Rivera, but it's hard to come by any sort of value in regards to tight ends this late in the season. The Raiders got their passing game rockin', with Rivera catching 5 passes for 54 yards and a score against the Texans. He's a very low-end flex option and TE2, but he could see value with Matt McGloin expected to stay under center.
