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.
It is incredible how much the tight end position has grown this season. Teams like the New England Patriots are dropping the fullback entirely and installing two tight end systems. There are four tight ends in the top 20 in the league in receiving yards, and Jimmy Graham is in the top five. Fantasy owners of Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez are reaping the benefits of the evolution of the tight end. Last week, we also saw the rise of two young tight ends in Dustin Keller and Fred Davis who were expected to have break-out seasons. How far will Davis and Keller rise in these rankings? Will Antonio Gates find the end zone in consecutive games? Will Tony Gonzalez continue to defy his age and score in his eighth game? Can Jason Witten barrel over the Cardinals secondary like he did that Cowboys cheerleader? With the end of the regular season close in fantasy football, make sure to have the best lineup in place by checking the tight end rankings.
I think I hit it right on the head by calling Rob Gronkowski the number one tight end last week, but surprisingly he will not be perched atop the rankings again this week. Instead we will find a Thanksgiving Day surprise as the threat in Big D will be the man this week against Miami. I am liking what I am seeing more and more in Jermaine Gresham, and obviously so is Andy Dalton as he is becoming a bigger part of the Bengals' passing attack. Can Vernon Davis keep up the little momentum he gained last week? How will Jimmy Graham do coming off of his bye? Will both Patriots be in the top ten of these rankings again? How far down has Jermichael Finley fallen this season? Can we trust Jake Ballard after he couldn't catch a ball last Sunday night? I am not sure how it is the last week in November already, but we are certainly coming down the stretch of this fantasy football season so be sure you have the best roster in your lineups with the help of the Week 12 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.
It wasn't a great Week 9 for tight ends across the NFL, so I assume that means that Week 10 should be a gold mine for them. As usual we will find one of the Patriots' at the top of the list as Gronkowski continues to rack up the catches and the end zone. Antonio Gates is still on the field and should continue to be in your lineups as long as he is going to be playing for the Chargers. Can you explain to me what is wrong with Vernon Davis and Jermichael Finley? Finley has had a few good games, but overall both have been disappointments. Lucky for him, it appears that Dallas Clark will miss the rest of the season, so at least he doesn't have to continue to go out on the field and get his arse kicked on a weekly basis. We are approaching the fantasy playoffs so every single week becomes more important, so be sure you start all of the right players by checking out the tight end rankings.
This has certainly been a golden season for tight ends, as so many guys are stepping up and providing their fantasy owners with major points on a weekly basis. Fred Davis made his presence felt with Chris Cooley officially out, Antonio Gates made his return, and Jared Cook found the end zone for the Titans. The good news for fantasy owners is that the Dynamic Duo of tight ends in New England are off of their bye and can go back into your lineups, as well as Jason Witten, and Vernon Davis. What was once a black hole of fantasy sucking, but now is an integral part of your lineups. The contenders are definitely separating themselves from the pretenders in your fantasy leagues, and only contenders will really read the Week 8 Tight End rankings. You are a contender, aren't you?
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.
You might find the name at the top of this list to be a little strange, but I am really liking what I am seeing from Greg Olsen and I think this is going to be a huge game for him. I also like the fact that Vernon Davis has finally gotten his head out of his rear end and is starting to live up to some of his predraft hype. Jimmy Graham came through for me big time last week, which means that this week might not be so hot. But I am really liking what I see from Dustin Keller as well as Brandon Pettigrew. Who else do I like and not like? You can find it all below in this week's tight end rankings.
It is Jeff Mans' favorite position as that guy knows a thing or two about tight ends on a football field. He is known to check out some guys' butts for hours at a time. Nevertheless, we are finding some stars at the position that we didn't expect to start the season like Rob Gronkowski, Dustin Keller, and Greg Olsen. How will these guys do as we move towards the bye weeks and fantasy owners need to tweak their lineups on a weekly basis? What about Dallas Clark and Marcedes Lewis? Will they ever get it together? How long will Antonio Gates be out and what kind of fantasy value does Randy McMichael have? We have a surprise at the top of this list and you can also find out if Rob Gronkowski will score yet again in the Week 4 Tight End rankings.
