Tight ends are a tricky position to manage in fantasy football.
If you're lucky enough to have a top-tier TE, then it's incredibly easy to set your lineup each week. However, most of us are not that lucky and need to search the waiver wire and soft matchups in search of a serviceable tight end that might have a chance of getting into the end zone.
