Fantasy Football 2015 Tight End Rankings: Week 11

Tyler Eifert

Tyler Eifert

Ranking tight ends for fantasy purposes isn't as easy as one may think. Slotting Rob Gronkowski in the top spot every week (except when he was on bye), is what makes the most sense, but that doesn't mean Gronk is going to lead all tight ends in fantasy scoring.

And the pecking order after Gronk is anything but certain. Even guys like Tyler Eifert and Gary Barnidge either have their ups and downs (Eifert was terrible on Monday night) or their circumstances changes. For Barnidge, the change from Josh McCown to Johnny Manziel as the Browns' starting quarterback could have a big impact on the TE's value the rest of this season. The good news for Barnidge owners, is they don't have to really worry about that until next week since the Browns are on bye.

Still it’s this mass confusion and lack of consistency (even Gronk has had his rough patches) that makes tight end rankings like these an important resource to consult before setting your lineup.
