Tight End Rankings Week 9: Greg Olsen

Has there ever been a season where tight ends have been so awful and inconsistent in fantasy football?

It’s crazy the amount of 0 fantasy point days the top 12 tight ends are putting up. These guys are basically killing any chance a fantasy team has of winning that week.

That’s why paying close attention to the tight end rankings is so important. You want to make sure you start a tight end that is at least going to get you something.

At least this week fantasy owners don't have to worry about a Ricky Seals-Jones or C.J. Uzomah or Jack Doyle or Eric Ebron or even Evan Engram being the TE that disappoints them since they are on bye. There's also no Zach Ertz this week and he's one of the few guys who has been getting the job done week in and week out.
