MIAMI, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- If you are in a fantasy football league that requires a starting tight end, you have likely been on the lookout for more consistent production.

Even if you took a stud like Rob Gronkowski early in your draft, you now need to find a replacement to get some much needed points during the most important stretch of the season.

To help you figure out who to sit or start at the position, take a look at my top 20 tight ends for Week 13. You can also view my add/drops for the week and more positional rankings in the links below.

TOP SHELF

Travis Kelce is my top ranked tight end for Week 13. The Kansas City Chiefs pass-catcher gets a matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons have allowed seven touchdowns to tight ends, the third-most in the NFL, and have conceded the fourth-most fantasy points to the position. Kelce has 209 yards on 15 receptions in his last two games. Seattle Seahawks stud tight end Jimmy Graham is my No. 2 option. Graham battles a Carolina Panthers secondary allowing the second-most fantasy points and touchdowns to tight ends. Graham has at least 46 receiving yards in four consecutive games. He also has three touchdowns during that stretch.

SNEAKY PLAYS

Kyle Rudolph is a TE1 again this week. The Minnesota Vikings battle the Dallas Cowboys, a defense allowing the seventh-most fantasy points to tight ends. Rudolph has two touchdowns in his last four games and is coming off of a nine-catch performance in Week 12. New Orleans Saints tight end Coby Fleener battles a Detroit Lions secondary allowing the third-most fantasy points and second-most touchdowns to tight ends.

LONGSHOTS

Houston Texans tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz is startable again this week against the Green Bay Packers. The Packers are allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to tight ends. Fiedorowicz has 124 yards on 10 receptions in his last two starts. Keep a close eye on New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett. Bennett could be in for a big day if Gronkowski sits out or is in any way limited this week. Tom Brady should be able to torch the Rams secondary, following a disappointing week by his standards in Week 12. The Rams allowed 133 yards on 10 receptions last week to New Orleans Saints tight ends.
