I can't bring myself to give up on Kyle Pitts for Fantasy, because we've seen how much potential he has, but it's getting harder to defend him every week. He had just 26 yards on two catches in Week 12, his third game in the past five with fewer than 30 yards, and unlike early in the season, it's not like I can even point to some super valuable role as a reason to keep the faith.

The Falcons' pass volume has shrunk and he's now averaging just 6.2 targets per game over the past five. There aren't many tight ends with as much as upside as Pitts, but there are quite a few outperforming him right now, and I can't necessarily tell you it's going to get better in that offense anytime soon.

Here are my tight end rankings for Week 13. To see the rankings of Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard, and Heath Cummings, make sure you head here
