Week 17 Fantasy TE Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts at tight end

There’s only one question that’s really going to matter for our Week 17 fantasy TE rankings and key start ’em, sit ’em for owners still playing. Is Travis Kelce going to play?

Andy Reid has long sat his starters during meaningless games, and this one would qualify for the Chiefs, who are locked into the No. 1 seed in the AFC no matter what happens in Week 17. That could lead Reid to bench Kelce to keep him fresh for the postseason, and if that happens, it would be a massive blow to our TE rankings.

WEEK 17 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | D/ST | Kicker

Thankfully, George Kittle returned to action last week and produced despite being on a snap count, as that will add a potential top-five play for owners that will need to replace Kelce with a streamer. Additional solid streamers this week include Rob Gronkowski (vs. Falcons), Robert Tonyan (@ Bears), Mike Gesicki (@ Bills), and Logan Thomas (@ Eagles).

With few volume options available at TE, most fantasy owners will be in the same boat at the TE spot. They’re relying on a TD to put them over the top. There’s enough upside that some of these players should pan out, but it will be tough to predict exactly which one will. That’s why TE is one of the most difficult and frustrating to project week in and week out in all fantasy football formats.
