In such a crucial week for most of you, please continue to play your stud TE's. Don't over-think the match-up. I've been hearing a lot of people talk about how the Colts' Defense is one of the better defenses in the league against the opposing team's Tight Ends. That is easy to do when your cornerbacks are over-matched, and there's absolutely no reason to throw short passes over the middle when you can just throw it over the Colts' awful CBs right into your receivers' hands. As a result, people are openly questioning whether Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez are due for a letdown this week. Gronkowski has 21 touchdowns in his first 27 games of his career with one of the game's best QBs of all-time throwing darts to him. I think he'll be fine. I watched him in person single-handedly dismantle the Jets' defenders a few weeks ago. He is an absolute physical freak. The Patriots' #2 and #3 WR's just happen to play Tight End, so I'd continue to roll out Hernandez and Gronk this week and for however many weeks your team remains alive. TE is a tricky position. Don't get cute.
Week 13 TE Ranks after the jump...Best of luck this week!!
