Tight ends can make or break your ability to brag to your fantasy football friends this weekend. 

After 12 weeks the top fantasy tight ends have emerged at the top of the fantasy stat leaderboards and cemented themselves as certain starters each week. Make sure you're all up to date and prepared to dominate your league. 

Here are this week's TE power rankings.

Week 13 rankings: Quarterbacks | Running Backs | Wide Receivers | Tight Ends | Defense/Special Teams 



1. Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens (@ Pittsburgh Steelers)

  • 2021 stats: 60 receptions, 761 yards, 6 touchdowns
  • 2021 points: 176.1 (2nd)

There's a new No.1 tight end in town this week! Mark Andrews caught four passes for 65 yards and a touchdown against the Browns during Sunday Night Football in Week 12. It was a bit of a crazy night overall as all four of Lamar Jackson's interceptions were targeted to him. Expect Jackson to be just as aggressive in getting his favorite target involved against their arch rivals. 

2. Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs (vs Denver Broncos)

  • 2021 stats: 67 receptions, 821 yards, 5 touchdowns
  • 2021 points: 183.5 (1st)

Fantasy owners of Travis Kelce can take comfort in the fact that while Kansas City had initially stumbled out to a rocky start to the season, Kelce was always consistent in his production. Coming off a bye week and probably feeling slighted for falling down a spot in this weekly power ranking, Kelce will likely pop off vs. Denver.  


3. Darren Waller, Las Vegas Raiders (vs Washington Football Team)

  • 2021 stats: 53 receptions, 643 yards, 2 touchdowns
  • 2021 points: 129.3 (6th)

Waller exploded onto the scene to start the season, but has largely underwhelmed since. He'll look to follow up a two-catch output in Dallas with a more dominant performance against the visiting Burgundy and Gold this week. 

4. Rob Gronkowski, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@ Atlanta Falcons) 

  • 2021 stats: 29 receptions, 278 yards, 4 touchdowns
  • 2021 points: 90.8 (17th)

Rob Gronkowski returned to the Bucs lineup in dominant fashion with a seven-catch performance for the most receiving yards in a single game since coming out of retirement to join Tom Brady in Tampa Bay with 123. When healthy, he's a must-start. 

5. Mike Gesicki, Miami Dolphins (vs New York Giants)

  • 2021 stats: 52 receptions, 596 yards, 2 touchdowns
  • 2021 points: 125.9 (3rd)

Mike Gesickt has solidified himself as Tua Tagovailoa's most consistent option in the passing game. Expect Tua to look his way often vs. a porous Giants secondary. 

6. Dalton Schultz, Dallas Cowboys (@ New Orleans Saints)

  • 2021 stats: 47 receptions, 537 yards, 4 touchdowns
  • 2021 points: 126.7 (4th) 

Dalton Schultz was stellar on Thanksgiving as he made the most out of his three catches for 46 yards and a score. He'll be a big redzone option for Dak Prescott against the Saints.  

7. Kyle Pitts, Atlanta Falcons (vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

  • 2021 stats: 45 receptions, 661 yards, 1 touchdown
  • 2021 points: 117.1 (6th)

Pitts has cemented himself as one of the best fantasy tight ends in the game just over halfway through his rookie season. Always good for at least one breakaway pass play, fantasy owners will hope Pitts will get more looks closer to the end zone against the reigning champs.

8. Hunter Henry, New England Patriots (@ Atlanta Falcons)

  • 2021 stats: 35 receptions, 394 yards, 7 touchdowns
  • 2021 points: 116.4 (9th)

After a quiet couple of weeks, Hunter Henry will look to get back on track with Mac Jones in Buffalo. Still, Henry has proven to be one of the best at getting six points from the tight end position this season. 

9. T.J. Hockenson, Detroit Lions (@ Minnesota Vikings)

  • 2021 stats: 51 receptions, 486 yards, 3 touchdowns
  • 2021 points: 119.6 (6th)

Hockenson is Jared Goff's best option in the passing game. Getting closer to the win column with a two-point Thanksgiving loss versus the Bears, Hockenson will be key for a potential Detroit upset over the Vikings. 

10. Zach Ertz, Arizona Cardinals (@ Chicago Bears)

  • 2021 stats: 40 receptions, 458 yards, 5 touchdowns
  • 2021 points: 116.2 (10th)

Ertz has looked revitalized in a Cardinals uniform since getting traded from Philadelphia. With the way Kyler Murray and that Arizona offense has been performing, it's tough to bench him against the struggling Seahawks.
