Tight End Rankings Week 3

Rob Gronkowski: Tight End Rankings Week 3

Rob Gronkowski: Tight End Rankings Week 3

Jimmy Graham: Tight End Rankings Week 15

Week 2 was finally the week where we saw elite production from the top fantasy tight ends. Both Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce had huge games for their fantasy owners. But then again that’s why you drafted them so high in the first place.

The scary thing is that the injury bug is starting to hit the tight end position pretty hard. Greg Olsen (out 6-8 weeks), Rob Gronkowski (groin), Jimmy Graham (ankle), Jordan Reed (toe), and Tyler Eifert (back/knee) are all either out this week or could be limited. That’s quite a few starting TEs already shaping up to be risky plays in Week 3.
