Tight End Rankings Week 6

Ed Dickson: Tight End Rankings Week 6

Ed Dickson: Tight End Rankings Week 6

Travis Kelce: Tight End Rankings Week 6

Any guess as to which were the top two tight ends in fantasy scoring last week? The answers are Ed Dickson and George Kittle. The odds are you didn't start either, unless you're some sort of fantasy savant or in a really deep league.

The next two on the list are more familiar names at the position – Zach Ertz and Travis Kelce. But Dickson and Kittle are excellent examples of why you need to pay attention to volume, opportunity and matchup when it comes to selecting a tight end, especially with bye weeks in play (no Jimmy Graham, Charles Clay, Jason Witten or Tyler Kroft this week) and if you stream tight ends.
