Fantasy Football 2015 Tight End Rankings: Week 8

Gary Barnidge

Last week, for the first time this season, Rob Gronkowski wasn’t the No. 1-ranked fantasy tight end. Then he goes out and plays like he always does — catching a season-high 11 passes (16 targets) for 108 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' dismantling of the Jets. For the season, Gronk's six touchdown catches has him tied for the league lead and he's 13th in receiving yards (533). It's no surprise that Gronk is back at No. 1 this week, but the rest of the top five sure is interesting.
