Tight End Rankings Week 6: Austin Hooper

Tight End Rankings Week 6: Austin Hooper

As usual, the tight end position in fantasy football is just brutal. Outside of Travis Kelce, Zach Ertz and Rob Gronkowski (when healthy), the position is anyone's guess.

Don't believe me? Take a look at who made the top 10 this week. Eric Ebron, Jared Cook, Cameron Brate – players that in most fantasy football leagues were probably not even drafted.

And it's not like Week 6 is particularly impacted by teams on bye. It's Detroit and New Orleans. Can you even name the Lions' tight ends? They are Luke Willson and Levine Toilolo, who have combined for seven catches for 48 yards. I'm pretty sure no one's stressing over not being able to use them in their lineup this week.

If there ever was a season to stream tight ends, this is it.
