Fantasy Football Maniax
The 49ers are giving up the 9th most points to fantasy tight ends over the last 3 weeks, Thomas should have another big game this Sunday.
Gronk has 13 receptions for 194 yards and 1 touchdown in his last 2 games; Gronk is starting to play like an All-Pro tight end. Furthermore, the Jets rank 31st against fantasy tight ends over the last 3 weeks.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
No Willis could be huge but Niners tend to contain TEs and his TD streak is going to end eventually.
Jets are in a world of hurt here as Gronk is getting healthier. He's easily the top TE to use.
