Fantasy Football Week 11 Tight End Rankings

Does the top tier of Tight Ends in 2011 look weird or what? I thought Jermichel Finley would be blowing everyone out of the water, but Aaron Rodgers has been masterful this season and spreads the ball around with such precision that he could just walks over to his wideouts and places the ball in their hands if he wants. For as disappointing as he's been, Finley is still the 5th-best TE in standard leagues thanks to 5 touchdowns. I did NOT believe in Tony Gonzalez prior to this season, especially with the Falcons trading up to draft Julio Jones. He's putting up more points than any TE not named Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski (who are in a class by themselves). Graham currently is edging Mr. Bibi Jones in standard scoring by 3 points, but with the Saints on bye, Gronk will most likely earn the #1 spot on Monday Night. Perhaps the biggest surprise is seeing NYG TE Jake Ballard rank 10th - Eli Manning loves the big target and goes to him in crucial situations. This is no fluke. He may finish in the top 10. I can't believe how the 49ers are not utilizing Vernon Davis (their #1 threat on offense) but I guess when your defense man-handles opponents and the running game has been awesome, why mess with a good thing?

Continue to buy: Jermichel Finley, Jake Ballard, Jason Witten, Greg Olsen

Continue to sell: Tony Gonzalez (his value is at his highest), Antonio Gates (before an injury hits), Kellen Winslow, Brent Celek
