Fantasy’s tight end position looks considerably weaker than it did a week ago, as the recognized star is likely done for the season and the next guy in line wrecked a shoulder on Thanksgiving. So how was your Thanksgiving? Carolina’s Greg Olsen is the lone tight end left among the top tier for Week 13 and he has to travel to Seattle so, in other words, it’s quite the interesting week for the tight end spot. Fantasy owners will be watching myriad situations to glean value for not only this week, but the fantasy playoffs, and of course, we’re always watching the New England Patriots.
