Tight End Rankings Week 8

Zach Ertz has gone over 100 yards in three of his last four games

No one likes having to roster two tight ends on their fantasy football team. But if you are a Rob Gronkowski owner, you basically have no choice.


Gronk didn’t play last week, leaving a lot of fantasy owners scrambling at the last minute, and there is no guarantee that he plays this week. And Gronk's situation is further complicated by the fact that the Patriots play on Monday night.


So who should you use instead of Gronk? Or who should be the second tight end on your roster? It won't be Austin Hooper or Antonio Gates or even Geoff Swaim this week, that's for sure. At least not unless you want to guarantee a goose egg from your tight end. (Hint: they are all on bye.)
