Is there a more fickle and inconsistent fantasy position to rank than the tight end position? Rob Gronkowski was the No. 1-ranked tight end last week and was a complete dud. Of course he’s No. 1 again this week because he has a great matchup but you never know what you are going to get from tight ends.
Take Tyler Eifert, for example. He has nine touchdowns on the season, which places him second in the NFL. He has had three games with multiple TDs, including three last Thursday in Cincinnati's win over Cleveland. But in the five other games, he has just there total TD catches and went without a catch or even a target in Week 3. Still, there's been more than enough production to slot Eifert just behind Gronk in this week's rankings.
Teams on bye: Atlanta, Indianapolis, San Diego, San Francisco
