Fantasy Football 2014 Tight End Rankings: Week 9

After a vintage performance last week, there’s a familiar face atop Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 9. Rob Gronkowski abused Chicago’s defense, catching nine passes for 143 yards and three touchdowns in New England’s Week 8 rout. Gronk certainly looks to be back and he’s our No. 1 TE this week. Julius Thomas and Jimmy Graham are certainly no slouches by any respect, and Graham owners in particular were no doubt thrilled to see their big man be productive (5-59-1) last week even though he’s still dealing with a sprained shoulder. For those who may be looking for a fill-in TE these next two weeks, you could certainly do worse than Heath Miller, if he’s available in your league. The veteran went for 112 yards and a touchdown last week and is a top-10 fantasy TE on the season.

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.
