Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Travis Kelce tops my Week 11 fantasy football tight end rankings.
If you have any tight ends from the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, New York Jets or San Francisco 49ers, make sure to remove them from your lineup, as those teams have Week 11 byes.

Here are my top 20 options at the position this week.
TOP 20 WEEK 11 RANKINGS BELOW
Kelce is an obvious must-start as he already has 787 yards and six scores on 57 catches this season for the Kansas City Chiefs. I expect a huge game in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams in what is booked to be a shootout. Kelce has a shot at multiple scores in this matchup.
Burton is my No. 4 tight end this week. The Chicago Bears target has only reached 100 receiving yards in one game this season, but does has five touchdowns. I expect a big week once again from Burton against the Minnesota Vikings. He is a must-start in leagues that require starting tight ends.
Graham is my No. 5 tight end for Week 11. The Green Bay Packers star had just one grab for 14 yards in Week 10 but should be used much more in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks in a game that shouldn't lack offensive fireworks. Start Graham with confidence in this matchup.
Engram is my No. 6 option at the position for Week 11 with a matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a unit allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. The New York Giants target had four catches for 46 yards in Week 10. He had five catches for 25 yards and a score in Week 8. With Eli Manning heating up and defenses concentrating on Odell Beckham Jr., I expect Engram to find space to operate against this beatable secondary.
McDonald lands at No. 9 in my Week 11 rankings. The Pittsburgh Steelers target has a matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a unit allowing the seventh-most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. McDonald has at least three catches in four consecutive games and should be used even more in this matchup as the Jaguars will likely lock down Steelers wide receivers. McDonald is a must-start in leagues that require starting tight ends.

Tennessee Titans pass catcher Jonnu Smith is my No. 15 option at tight end this week. He should only be used if you are in a league that requires starting the position. You could do much worse in Week 11. Smith is a streaming option against the Indianapolis Colts, a unit that has allowed the fifth-most receiving yards to opposing tight ends. Smith also enters Week 11 after scoring touchdowns in back-to-back games. I think he goes for his third touchdown of the season in this great matchup.
