The tight end position isn’t quite as terrible as it has been. That’s about as excited as I can get about it, though. 

More Week 14

We’ve had a solid seven for most of the season and a couple of veterans have joined them in recent weeks. Kyle Rudolph and Jack Doyle have taken advantage of the fact that their No. 1 receivers can’t get healthy. Since Week 10 they’ve both been top-10 options, and I don’t expect that will change unless Adam Thielen or T.Y. Hilton return. For Doyle, I’m not even sure the return of Hilton would ruin him.  

It’s also not just the old guys coming on strong. Mike Gesicki has scored in back-to-back games and has six targets or more in each of his past five games. Dallas Goedert saw his role expand when Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor went out but it didn’t disappear in Week 13 when they returned. Tyler Higbee had a monster game without Gerald Everett, and Jacob Hollister has essentially been Russell Wilson’s No. 2 receiver for the past month. 

Of course, it’s fitting that all of these options emerge right when half of the league is eliminated. If you’re in the playoffs, you probably don’t need a fill-in at tight end anyway. You definitely don’t if you have Doyle this week.
