Fantasy Football Playoffs MVPs - Tight Ends

Tony Gonzalez still has one more football game to be played, but he is done being our favorite fantasy football tight end since the 1999 season.  Gonzalez left fantasy as the TE MVP this playoff season ranking 14th, 5th and 1st.  Thank you Tony G, you will be forever missed and you were the model of consistency at a position that you made the focal point of offensive around the NFL!

Six other TEs made the cut, and two of them did not even score a single touchdown!  That is how poorly TEs performed this postseason.

Next on the list was not Jimmy Graham (who failed to make the cut) or even Julius Thomas, but Marcedes Lewis!  The Jacksonville Jaguars TE caught a TE in all 3 weeks.

Julius Thomas was 3rd, finishing just slightly ahead of Tim Wright.  Thomas never got to be the #1 TE of any week like Wright was in Week 15, but he finished 9th, 23rd and 2nd to get him in ahead of the young Buc.  Thomas caught just 2 more passes than Wright but gained 32 more yards and they both caught 2 TDs.

Mychal Rivera, Matrellus Bennett and Greg Olsen were the only other TEs to rank in all 3 weeks.  Olsen caught 16 passes for 163 yards, Bennett hauled in 16 for 199 but neither caught a TD.  Rivera was able to score in Week 14 giving him a 10th place finish that week and a TD in Week 15 ranked him 11th.
