Tight End Rankings Week 5

Charles Clay has been a top-five fantasy TE through the first four games of the season

The tight end position for fantasy football right now is basically three players – Rob Gronkowski, Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz – and then everyone else. You're lucky if you have one of those three studs, especially after injuries to Greg Olsen, Tyler Eifert and Jordan Reed. But if you're like most fantasy owners, you're left scrambling to see which tight end is worth starting week in and week out.


To add to the degree of difficulty in Week 5 is the fact that Reed, Coby Fleener, Austin Hooper and Virgil Green aren’t even options because they are on bye. As a result there are some surprises in this week’s 10 top 10 because of that and matchups.
