Tight End Rankings Who To Start Week 8 in Fantasy Football


Jimmy Graham dealt his owners a big blow last week when he wasn’t able to give it a go against Tampa, but he should be ready to go this week. However, with Tony Gonzalez and Antonio Gates coming back from their byes, he’s not even in the top five of our composite rankings.

I actually think he’s the #1  tight end this week since the game in Denver’s going to be a shoot-out with TD’s flowing freely on both sides. However, my fellow rankers didn’t really agree with me on that one though as they ranked him much lower. That’s one of the strengths of composite rankings-one opinion isn’t all that matters.

Here’s our top 15 TE’s for the week. As usual, I (ZT) was joined in the rankings by Steve Copps (SC) and Jeffrey Littrell (JL) who are contributors for FantasyCPR. We ranked our top 15 with NR (not ranked) counting for 20 for averaging purposes.
