Tight End Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 3

Those in 2-TE and deeper leagues may want to get to know Kylen Granson.

My Week 3 fantasy football tight end rankings are unlikely to impact your decisions for the position as there is not much discrepancy between my list and the Expert Consensus Rankings (ECR). 

The one discrepancy might be a player worth including on your radar, Indianapolis' Kylen Granson.

Before the season even began I was fading Mo Alie-Cox and I couldn't understand why everyone in the industry liked him so much. Rarely was I diving that deep for a TE, but even when I was, I still was selecting Granson over Alie-Cox.

Granson might be listed as the No. 2 TE on the Colts' depth chart, but he actually has one more snap than Alie-Cox does two weeks into the season. You're forgiven for not knowing who Granson is as the second-year pro only played two games last year due to injury. But while Alie-Cox is more of a blocking TE, Granson gives the Colts the vertical, pass-catching threat needed at the position in today's offenses.

See below for the rest of my Week 3 TE rankings.
