The Column for "Either" shows how many times they had either 50 yards and/or a touchdown game.

Jimmy Graham ended up tops thanks to only having one game that did not feature either a score and/or 50 yards. He and Rob Gronkowski were obvious advantanges but overall there were ten tight ends that had a decent game at least half or more of the time. The success of tight ends last year will also spawn more use of the position in the copycat league looking for anything that works.
