News and notes – week 14 rankings and mathcups – tight ends (TE)

Dallas Clark – TE – Tampa Bay Bucs

Dallas Clark continues his ascent up the rankings, going from early season blocker to impact TE for Tampa Bay.  While he certainly isn’t right for everyone, if you find yourself heading into the playoffs with Antonio Gates or Dennis Pitta as your TE, you will definitely want to consider Clark as a superior option.

Antonio Gates – TE – San Diego Chargers

This offseason there will be plenty of speculation as to whether Gates poor performance in 2012 was due to Philip Rivers, or Gates himself.  Either way, we do know that he isn’t the TE1 that many expected this season, and he has dropped out of my top 20 tight ends all together.

Brandon Pettigrew – TE – Detroit Lions

It was revealed earlier this week that Pettigrew had not fully regained the strength in his legs until just last week, and suddenly he is starting to produce much like we expected before the season began.  If you have held on to Pettigrew this long, it looks like he is starting to come around at just the right time and can be trusted as a low TE1 again in all formats.

As always if you have any questions or comments feel free to post them in the forums for the community to get involved in.
