Jimmy Graham: Tight End Rankings Week 9

Jack Doyle: Tight End Rankings Week 9

With six teams on a bye this week, it can be tricky trying to find the right tight end to start for your fantasy team in Week 9, especially if you own Rob Gronkowski or Kyle Rudolph. Fortunately there are some names out there who should be available on your league’s waiver wire, such as Jack Doyle or Vernon Davis.

And several of the top-flight options are playing this week and have favorable matchups, starting with Zach Ertz against a Denver defense that has been vulnerable against tight ends this season.
