The tight end is one of the most difficult positions to navigate in Fantasy Football. With the exception of just a few elite options, the rest of the field is generally inconsistent. Streaming tight ends can be a popular strategy in Fantasy Football because of this, making match ups more important for tight ends than most other positions.

Week 14 Fantasy Football tight end rankings: Start 'Em

Tight ends to target in Week 14 of the 2021 Fantasy Football season.

Noah Fant, Denver Broncos vs. Detroit Lions

Noah Fant has at least three receptions in all but two of the games he has started this season, and at least four targets in all but one. His two biggest Fantasy Football point totals of the season both came during home games. He has a home game this week in a favorable matchup with the Detroit Lions, who rank in the bottom half of the NFL in passing defense.

Noah Fant deserves a QB that will actually throw him the ball

Gerald Everett, Seattle Seahawks vs. Houston Texans

Gerald Everett has been solid in four games since the Seahawks' bye week. He has combined for 20 receptions on 27 targets for 144 yards and a touchdown. He only caught 14 passes across his first six games. He will look to stay involved and remain productive for Fantasy Football against the Houston Texans, one of the worst overall teams in the NFL.

Cole Kmet, Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers

After a slow start to the 2021 Fantasy Football season, Cole Kmet has put up solid production lately. He has at least three receptions in six of his last seven games and at least five targets in all of those. There is a good chance that the Bears will be playing from behind when they face off against the Packers in Week 14, so the volume should be available for Kmet.

Week 14 Fantasy Football tight end rankings: Sit 'Em

Tight ends to be avoided in Week 14 of the 2021 Fantasy Football season.

Jared Cook, Los Angeles Chargers vs. New York Giants

Jared Cook has only exceeded 30 receiving yards once in his last eight games and three times all season. In standard scoring leagues, he has only recorded more than ten Fantasy Football points in one game this season. He has not been involved enough in the Chargers offense to be trusted in Week 14.

Jared Cook thought that play was over. If he was paying attention, he might have caught that for a first down.

David Njoku, Clevelad Browns vs. Baltimore Ravens

David Njoku has been almost irrelevant to Fantasy Football over the last two months. He has failed to reach 40 receiving yards in any of his last seven games while recording three or fewer receptions in all of those games. Despite a good matchup with a weak Ravens passing defense, Njoku can be avoided in Fantasy Football this week.

Evan Engram, New York Giants vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Evan Engram has a tough matchup this week against the Los Angeles Chargers, who rank seventh in the NFL against the passing game. The Chargers rank 31st against the rushing game, so the game script will probably call for the Giants to try and run the ball as much as possible. Fewer targets available means less production for Engram, who only averages about three touches per game anyway.
