Tight End Rankings Week 7: David Njoku

Week 7 of the fantasy football season is upon us, which means for a lot of fantasy owners, it's back to the drawing board to figure out who to start at tight end this week.

The four teams on bye (Green Bay, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Seattle) complicate matters this week, but Jimmy Graham still has just one touchdown catch thus far (he did have his first 100-yard game this past week) while Jared Cook has been rather quiet the past few weeks.

There are a few names that are starting to creep up in the rankings. But are guys like Trey Burton, Austin Hooper and Ryan Griffin really top-12 fantasy tight end options this week? And what about Greg Olsen? He's back after missing three games. Can you trust him as a must-start TE1 once again?
