Delanie Walker has been on fire, but the Tennessee Titans matchup with Jets, Patriots and Texans, all teams that know how to shut down opposing TEs.  New York has allowed just two TE TDs all season (Jake Stoneburner and Rob Gronkowski) and have limited TEs to just 3.5 catches, 34.3 yards and 0 touchdowns per game from Week 8 on.  New England has allowed TDs to Jordan Reed and Zach Ertz in their last five games, but TE have totaled just 20 receptions for 187 yards during that stretch.  Finally, should you reach the fantasy championship, Houston has allowed just one TE touchdown to Charles Clay this past weekend since Week 6!  In fact, TEs have caught just 12 passes since the Texans Week 9 BYE. 

Ben Watson is having his best year since 2010, and could help lead your team to a fantasy football championship trophy!  Tampa Bay will present a challenge this weekend as they have done a nice job shutting out opposing TEs for five weeks in a row now.  If you can survive a thrid straight week scoreless week from Watson, he gets favorable matchups against the Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars.  The Lions have allowed touchdowns in 10 games to 8 different TEs this season,  Think about it this way, Kyle Rudolph has scored in both games against the Detroit.  

With Mark Ingram out for the season, the Saints could rely heavily on the pass attack.

In Week 16, the Jaguars come to the Superdome and they have been crushed by TEs over the last four weeks.  Both Ravens TEs (Crockett Gillmore & Maxx Williams) scored in Week 10, Walker caught eight passes for 109 yards in Week 11, Antonio Gates caught two TDs in Week 12 and Walker and Craig Stevens combined for 10 catches, 103 yards and two touchdowns last week.

With Martellus Bennett out for the season, fantasy owners could turn to Zach Miller, at least with a bench spot.  He is currently owned in just 18% of Yahoo leagues!  However, he is a desperation play as the matchups with the Redskins, Vikings and Bucs are not favorable!
