Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, the tight end position found a way to surprise us all with new lows. At this point, your chances of hitting on a productive tight end not named Ertz or Kelce are about as good as your chances of naming a song by the Baha Men that's not "Who Let the Dogs Out?" With that said, I'll do my best to guide you through this house of horrors and see if we can't pull a "Get Ya Party On" out of our hat. (Yeah, I Googled Baha Men songs. That's how much I love you all.) Now, onto the tight end rankings.
Anyone wondering whether Jared Cook would pull his typical disappearing act after starting the season hot was surely impressed with his 8 receptions for 110 yards and 2 TDs on 13 targets. Cook is beginning to look like the real deal.
Eric Ebron continues to thrive with Jack Doyle out of commission. Ebron once again received double digit targets, though his meager 50 percent catch rate was a disappointment. Still, Ebron is third in targets amongst tight ends over the last two weeks, which makes him a great volume play.
There's an interesting new tight end prospect in Denver. Following Jake Butt's season-ending injury, Jeff Heuerman stepped up to the tune of 4 receptions for 57 yards on 7 targets. If Demaryius Thomas can't get his act together, Heuerman could become the big-bodied target Case Keenum desperately needs.
