Travis Kelce: Tight End Rankings Week 1

Week 1 of the fantasy football season is finally here and now it’s time to answer the big question that is on everyone’s minds... who should I start at tight end in Week 1?


Well, if you have Rob Gronkowski, Travis Kelce or Zach Ertz, the answer is simple. But if you waited until the 12th round to draft a tight end or you like to stream tight ends, who will finish as a top-12 tight end this week?
