Tight End Rankings Week 3

Travis Kelce rebounded in a big way with 109 yards and two TDs against the Steelers

It's only Week 3, but it's already shaping up to be an intriguing competition to see which tight end finishes with the most fantasy points this season — Rob Gronkowski or Travis Kelce? Even though Kelce stumbled out of the gates, he bounced back with a huge game last week while Gronkowski flipped the script.


Both should remain atop the tight end rankings for the duration of the season (except their bye week), but after that is where things get interesting. While there are still some must-start options like Zach Ertz and Evan Engram, injuries to the position have guys like Jared Cook and O.J. Howard now a part of the conversation. But how do they compare to guys like Jack Doyle and David Njoku? Or is now the time to trust Jordan Reed and Jimmy Graham to make good on their draft status?


For Week 3 at least, here's how our tight end rankings shake out.
