Tight End Rankings-Top 10 for Fantasy Football Week 4-Who To Start

Tight Ends are putting up points across the league at an alarming rate. Last week, it was a number of new faces, but still plenty of touchdowns as 15 were thrown to tight ends and Heath Miller and Kyle Rudolph led the way with a pair each. The big name tight ends, Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski, continue to struggle, but our rankings expect them to bounce back this week in favorable matchups.

Here’s our rankings for this week of the top 10 tight ends for the week. A special thanks to Steve Copps (SC), Jeffrey Littrell (JL), and Matthew Tuckness (MT) for joining me (ZT) in these rankings. The higher the rank the better the start, so start Graham and Gronk over Tony Gonzalez despite their recent struggles. NR stands for not ranked which counts as a 15 for averaging purposes.
