There simply aren't many choices left in this Week 15 Waiver Wire Tight Ends article. The big news in regards to fantasy tight ends, of course, is the stunning loss of Rob Gronkowski, who suffered multiple knee tears and is out for the year. With Gronk out, this leaves many owners scrambling for a starter-worthy player going into Week 15.
Also make sure to read:
Dennis Pitta - Ravens
Making his 2013 debut, Pitta was another player who "wasn't eased back into the lineup" just like other players we've seen come back (outside of Harvin and Crabtree). Pitta caught 6 passes for 48 yards and reeled in his first score of the season. A team that had lost it's identity without Pitta gets him back at just the right time. If you are a Gronk owner, Pitta HAS to be your top waiver wire choice this week. There is simply no other waiver tight end who comes close to the production Pitta can put up. Not even the guy listed below.
Garrett Graham - Texans
Graham likely isn't available on your wire, unless a desperate owner tossed him aside for another player at another position. Gary Kubiak is gone as the Texans head coach, so this should mean no more quarterback switching mid-games. Graham has reeled in 5 or more catches in 3 out of the last 4 games and score twice in the last 4 games. He's a dicey play, but Gronk owners have no other choice if they can't land Pitta. He has a tough matchup against the Colts, but must be picked up if he is somehow on your wire.
Jacob Tamme - Broncos
No this isn't for Julius Thomas owners. After Wes Welker was knocked out of the team's game against the Titans with a concussion, Jacob Tamme played a majority of the snaps in the slot. Tamme wasn't outstanding, but he still caught 4 passes for 47 yards while acting mostly in receiver mode. If Welker is a no go, which appears likely with the Chargers game coming up Thursday, Tamme could be a decent option for those in desperation mode. Tamme and Manning have shown extreme chemistry in the past.
