The New England Patriots decided to give the NFL a break for one week, so Rob Gronkowski didn't have a touchdown, but he goes right back to the top of the rankings as the Patriots are still fighting for playoff positioning and are playing the Dolphins. While you have many of the usual suspects near the top of the list, I'm sneaking a few guys up there that you might not expect. Even though T.J. Yates is at quarterback for the Texans I can see him tearing up the Colts Thursday night as Yates only has the arm to hit Daniels over the middle, and Gresham is emerging as a force and could shred the Cardinals linebackers as well. It is Super Bowl week for many of you, and hopefully those that got you here will give you another week of goodies, as many of the top tight ends have pretty good matchups. Which ones will succeed most? It is all here in the tight end rankings.
Week two of the fantasy football playoffs is among us and the tight end position is a very important one going forward. The two-headed monster in New England has led you to the fantasy playoffs, can they now bring you the rest of the way to the championship? What about Jermichael Finley and Vernon Davis? They have been two of the bigger disappointments, but now can they step up when you need them most? Which under the radar guy will surprise you and do well? All of your answers are here in the Week 15 Tight End Rankings.
OK, OK, I have been trying to fight it. I have been trying to mix it up and put different players from time to time at the top of the rankings because I think it is boring to just go with chalk and put Rob Gronkowski at the top every single week, but damn it after last week I just have to go with which guy is the best at the position and there is no doubt that is Gronkowski. Jermichael Finley and Vernon Davis actually are also starting to show some signs of life towards the end of their disappointing seasons, and then we have some of the usual standbys rounding out the top ten. Which tight end will lead your team to victory? If you have Fred Davis, what the hell are you going to do now? The guy you need to pick up is right here below in the tight end rankings.
What do you do on your time off of work? I'm sure none of us have as cool of stories as this guy to the right here on his bye week from the NFL. Yeah, this story might be a few weeks old, but it is time for Rob Gronkowski (the greatest tight end ever!!!! LOL) to ascend to the top of the Fantasy Alarm tight end rankings, so we commemorate that ranking with that picture. Man, why didn't I practice more when I was a kid? Anyway, it is Week 11 in the NFL and this is the final time that we have to deal with bye weeks this year. Both of the New England studs are in the top five this week, as well as Greg Olsen staying in the top ten even though it seems that everyone who is emailing or tweeting me is ready to give up on the guy. Can Vernon Davis actually live up to my ranking of him this week? Will Jermichael Finley finish his disappointing season strong? Is Jake Ballard really an every week starter? Will your fantasy team last longer in the playoffs than Kim Kardashian's marriage? The answer to that might depend on if your players in the Week 11 tight end rankings perform like they should.
The probable return of Antonio Gates and the injury to Chris Cooley is the biggest news items when it comes to tight ends in Week 7 and that begs the question can any quarterback in Washington get the ball to Fred Davis so he can show off his enormous potential? Other than that you have to recognize that Jimmy Graham and Greg Olsen are turning themselves into elite players at the position, while Jermichael Finley continues to disappoint even though he stays high on my rankings. it is a rough week for bye weeks upcoming as both New England studs, Vernon Davis, and even up and comers Jake Ballard and Jermaine Gresham won't be playing this weekend, and Zach Miller's concussion will keep him out as well. That fact alone makes it more important than ever to check out the weekly rankings to see which potential free agents might be able to help your team bring home the win as we reach the middle of October.
The two-headed tight end monster in New England is back in full effect and they are both in the top ten of this week's tight end rankings. We have a new leader in the clubhouse for Week 6 as I think that a certain tight end in the Lone Star State is going to have a big week against a weak New England defense even though I don't expect his team to win that game. The tight end by the Bay is re-establishing himself as one of the best in fantasy football, while a guy in Florida is really seeming like a waste of a roster spot. What can you expect out of your tight end this week? The answers are below in Fantasy Alarm's Week 6 tight end rankings.
