We’re winding down in the season, and if you’re reading this you’re likely in your Fantasy Championship. Congrats! If you’re not, and just like to read our takes, Thank you! Here we go with the top five tight ends of the week!   5. Brandon Myers – Raiders (AP Photo) Myers has been on a bit of a downhill slide after averaging a good 15 points a week for a month and a half,  but his last two weeks haven’t been as productive. This week the Raiders look to get some offensive production after a week where the only points they scored was off the foot of Janikowski. When Palmer gets going, the offense looks better, and he relies on Myers quite a bit. As the teams leading receiver, I don’t see things changing this week. Myers should be able to take advantage of the Panhters secondary and get back to the fantasy status he held for several weeks while making fantasy owners everywhere happy.   4. Greg Olsen – Panthers (Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE) The Panthers offense is starting to come on strong, like someone flipped a switch and things started clicking. Olsen hasn’t been on this list before, but seeing as how he’s facing up against the Raiders defense, that automatically gives him 10 fantasy points right off the bat (joking, but he should amount to at least that). He should be good for at least 70 yards and a score. The offense is on fire, and the Raiders defense is struggling mightily, he’ll be a very safe start.   3. Owen Daniels – Texans (Chris Humphreys-US PRESSWIRE) The Texans see the Vikings this week, and as the Vikings prepare to fight for the playoffs, we can’t ignore the fact the secondary hasn’t lived up to what they put on the field for the first half of the season. Daniels has been a solid contributor for the Texans, and Matt Schaub spreads the ball around nicely to make sure his guys get the ball in their hands. It’s been a few weeks since he’s found the endzone, but this should be the week he gets back on track. The Texans have already clinched their playoff appearance, so they won’t be super aggressive, but they’ll still go out and try to win the game. Owens should have a solid day for your fantasy squad.   2. Jason Witten – Cowboys (AP Photo/Julio Cortez) The Cowboys need to keep winning, and Jason Witten is a big part of that. He’s been arguably the most consistent at the position all season, and looks to keep that streak going. The Boys are fighting for a playoff spot, and if Romo wants to move the ball downfield he’ll look for Witten often. He’ll get his touches and yardage, lets just hope he can find the endzone for a nice little bonus.   1. Aaron Hernandez – Patriots (Kim Klement-US-PRESSWIRE) The Pats play the Jaguars this week, and Hernandez has seen the most targets in the last two weeks than he did in any other two-game stretch. That won’t change this week as Brady and the boys look to go to town on the Jaguars. While the Jags have been improving weekly, they’re no match for Brady, and I expect that Hernandez will be a key weapon in shredding that secondary in Jacksonville.   Sleeper – Dennis Pitta – Ravens: Pitta had a nice productive day last week and his fantasy owners were pleased. He looks to keep it up this week as the Ravens look to get the offense back in order after firing Cam Cameron. He is a playmaker and they’ll look to keep feeding him the ball. Pair that with the fact that the Giants could be without Kenny Phillips, it could be a big day for Pitta.   Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Editor-in-Chief – Justin Arbogast @NFLGuy_SK The post Down the Seam: Top 5 Fantasy TE’s for Week 16 appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
