Tight end non-PPR rankings for Week 15 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best non-PPR tight ends going into Week 15 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

Are we witnessing the decline of Travis Kelce or is his “down” season just a product of teams learning how to defend Patrick Mahomes better? It’s hard to know for sure, but he hasn’t been the automatic No. 1 tight end each week this season. George Kittle and Mark Andrews and Rob Gronkowski have been better and we’re going to have to start realizing that.

Injury news

Darren Waller, Las Vegas Raiders

Waller doesn’t look all that close to returning this week from his knee injury, but hopefully he can start getting some limited practices in sooner than later.

Tyler Higbee, Los Angeles Rams

Higbee missed last week due to COVID-19, but actually had a false positive and has been cleared for this week, while a huge chunk of his teammates actually have COVID-19 right now.

Austin Hooper, Cleveland Browns

David Njoku was out last week due to COVID-19 and now Hooper has been placed on the list. If Hooper can’t go and Njoku returns, Njoku would have some fantasy appeal.

T.J. Hockenson, Detroit Lions

Hockenson is dealing with a hand injury that kept him out last week. He should have a chance to return this week, but he’ll need to get in some practices.
