Welcome to our fantasy football tight end rankings for Week 13 of the 2019 NFL regular season. This week we get the pleasure of welcoming back all-world pass-catcher Travis Kelce to our fantasy lineups, back from a Week 12 bye. Will Kelce be able to dethrone George Kittle atop our ranks? Let’s take a look.

Tight End Outlook Week 13

Not many people can function on a fractured ankle, let alone torch NFL defenses for a 61-yard touchdown on their way to a 121 receiving yardage day, yet that’s exactly what George Kittle (TE3) did. Kittle has now averaged an outstanding 19.7 fantasy points in five of his six games since his team’s Week 4 bye.

Expect Kittle to continue to lead the way in the San Francisco passing game this week. However, a matchup against the Baltimore Ravens could make things slightly more murky for the tight end’s fantasy outlook. Still, Kittle is still a must-start, but may see a slight dip in production.

Since Week 5, Baltimore has allowed just one touchdown to an opposing tight end, and no more than 34 receiving yards to any player at the position over that time span. The Ravens surrender the fifth-fewest fantasy points to TEs this year.

Since Week 8, no tight end in football has scored more fantasy points than Philadelphia Eagles’ Zach Ertz (TE2). Unfortunately, fantasy owners my be stripped of Ertz and his stellar production from their lineups this week as he battles a hamstring injury.

With that said, Ertz did manage to finally make a practice appearance on Friday, his first of the week, albeit as a limited participant. However, he wrapped that practice up by telling reports “see you Sunday“, seemingly assuring he will be available for Week 13. If available he has a chance to finish the week as the top scorer at his position vs. a horrendous Miami Dolphins defense.

If Ertz suffers any setbacks prior to kickoff on Sunday, backup Dallas Goedert essentially becomes a must-start.
