4
1007

Tight ends is often a frustrating spot, with surprising names rising in any given week. Should we trust the recent surging options? Should we trust the “stars”? Let’s take a look at how our current Week 6 rankings look:

  1. Travis Kelce – Kansas City Chiefs – at Buffalo
  2. Mark Andrews – Baltimore Ravens – at Philadelphia
  3. George Kittle – San Francisco 49ers – vs. Los Angeles Rams
  4. Mike Gesicki – Miami Dolphins – vs. New York Jets
  5. Jonnu Smith – Tennessee Titans – vs. Houston
  6. Zach Ertz – Philadelphia Eagles – vs. Baltimore
  7. Robert Tonyan – Green Bay Packers – at Tampa Bay
  8. Evan Engram – New York Giants – vs. Washington
  9. Dalton Schultz – Dallas Cowboys – vs. Arizona
  10. Jimmy Graham – Chicago Bears – at Carolina
  11. Noah Fant – Denver Broncos – at New England
  12. Trey Burton – Indianapolis Colts – vs. Cincinnati
  13. T.J. Hockenson – Detroit Lions – at Jacksonville
  14. Austin Hooper – Cleveland Browns – at Pittsburgh
  15. Eric Ebron – Pittsburgh Steelers – vs. Cleveland
  16. Irv Smith – Minnesota Vikings – vs. Atlanta
  17. Tyler Higbee – Los Angeles Rams – at San Francisco
  18. Rob Gronkowski – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – vs. Green Bay
  19. Hayden Hurst – Atlanta Falcons – at Minnesota
  20. Darren Fells – Houston Texans – at Tennessee

Thoughts:

  • Mark Andrews has been a little bit TD dependent thus far, with just 222 yards but 5 TD. That said, the Eagles have allowed 5 TD to opposing tight ands the the fourth most points per week. Is it really a stretch to expect a TD in Week 6?
  • While Evan Engram has been disappointing thus far (18 catches for 147 yards and 0 TD), is this really the week you want to give up on him? Washington has allowed the fifth most points per week to opposing tight ends, with 341 yards and 5 TD. This could be his “breakout” performance, and while there’s risk he still needs to be viewed as a TE1.
  • Sure Robert Tonyan had a huge performance right before Green Bay’s bye week, but does anyone truly believe that he can replicate it against the Buccaneers? He’s as TD as it comes (13 catches and 5 TD) and he’s only been targeted 14 times. Don’t overvalue him in what is actually a difficult matchup.
  • Trey Burton has only played in two games this season, but he’s averaging 5.5 targets per game. Against a Cincinnati defense that’s allowed the seventh most yards to opposing tight ends and there could be significant upside. Maybe he’s the “breakout” star in Week 6? That makes him a borderline TE1.
