With both big bye weeks a distant memory, the upper tier of Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 11 looks a lot like many expected it would entering this season. An argument could be made when it comes to the first two spots, but no TE has been hotter than Rob Gronkowski. Even though he was on bye last week, none of his peers can match the 23 catches or 322 yards he has piled up over the past four weeks. And the only one who has as many touchdowns as Gronk (4) during this span is none other than Jimmy Graham, who has been a beast the past two games. Both should fare well this Sunday against Indianapolis and Cincinnati, respectively, and that’s not to take anything away from Julius Thomas, who leads the NFL in touchdown catches (12). Let’s face it, you can’t go wrong with any of these three (or Antonio Gates or Greg Olsen for that matter), that is unless you’re facing one of them.
Each week during the NFL season, we will rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any Web site can give you.
