Fantasy Football 2015 Tight End Rankings: Week 9

Did Vernon Davis make the cut?

So it’s true that this is Rob Gronkowski's world and we are just living in it. Especially when it comes to fantasy football and ranking tight ends.


You know that Gronk is No. 1, but that’s not why you’re reading this. You want to know where Gary Barnidge is this week and perhaps where Jordan Reed ranks, and who owners of Travis Kelce and Jimmy Graham should turn to since they are on bye?


Perhaps new Bronco Vernon Davis? A forgotten man who is far from his former fantasy glory days, does Davis turn back the clock now that he has Peyton Manning throwing to him? Is this the second coming of Julius Thomas? (Davis is wearing Thomas' old number if counts for anything.)  Or is Davis setting us (and the Broncos) up for disappointment yet again? Only time will tell, although it probably will take more than one game.
