Tight End Rankings Week 8

Zach Ertz is leading his position in fantasy points and has caught a TD pass in three straight games

Even after seven weeks of the fantasy season, the tight end position (and rankings for that matter) is still as foggy as the Falcons vs. Patriots game on Sunday night. Each week, it's a new TE making headlines, with O.J. Howard stealing the show in Week 7 thanks to a 98-yard, two-touchdown performance.


There also was Jared Cook, who had more than 100 receiving yards and came inches away from adding a touchdown to his stat sheet. So who it will be for Week 8? One thing’s for sure, with six teams on bye there are definitely some new names for TE-needy owners to consider taking a flyer on.
