Can a tight end win you a fantasy championship this week? Probably not, but not starting the right one can definitely ruin any chance you have of winning. That’s why in the most important week of the fantasy season, checking out these rankings are more important than ever.

Rob Gronkowski is No. 1, but who is No. 2? Tyler Eifert is still out, but could it be Greg Olsen (1,048 yds., 7 TDs this season), Delaine Walker (2 TDs last week), or Zach Ertz, whose best two performances have come in the last two games? And what about Jordan Reed? He topped everyone at the position with seven catches for 84 yards and two scores last week. Let’s find out.
