Fantasy Football 2016 Tight End Rankings: Week 4

It’s Week 4 and fantasy owners that drafted Rob Gronkowski in the first round are hoping this might finally be the week the No. 1 tight end finally starts producing like one. His matchup Sunday at home against the Bills is appealing, but who is going to be throwing Gronk the ball? Tom Brady still has one more game to sit.

Either way, Gronk is ranked high once again, but Jordan Reed and/or Greg Olsen could be viewed as safer bets. Also is it time to trust Dennis Pitta, after two-plus seasons lost to injuries, as a no-doubt, every-week TE1 again? The early returns (18 rec., 183 yards) are certainly promising, and he has a nice matchup against Oakland this week. I’m sure Coby Fleener (7-109-1) and Jimmy Graham (6-100-1) owners are smiling a little more this week too. But the question now is can they maintain this type of production?
