TE Rankings Week 8 (updated Saturday)

Welcome to the Week 8 Tight End Rankings!

As I did with the quarterbacks, running backs and receivers, I just want to take a quick second to remind folks that these rankings get posted early in my weekly process.  I spend Monday and Tuesday largely looking back, as I put the Waiver Wire articles and podcast together.  On Wednesday, I start organizing the new week and the lineup rankings that need to go up on Thursday—due to Thursday Night Football.  Much of the crucial information on a given week comes in on Friday and Saturday, so I strongly encourage you to consult my final rankings which usually go up Saturday afternoon and evening.  The early rankings, while important, are a quick sketch of the week to come.  The final rankings are almost always better are very rarely worse.  That is all.

The tight ends are shaping up a lot better these days.  At least they are in terms of depth.  I mean heck, I have Jordan Reed, Vance McDonald and Kyle Rudolph all ranked as TE2s.  That’s pretty good.  

For DFS purposes I am still grinding and looking for angles.  Paying up for the big guys seems like a decent way to go and I do like OJ Howard as a cost-saver.  I’ll have more ideas when Ido the DraftKings pod on Saturday.

Week 8 Byes:  Falcons, Cowboys, Titans, Chargers.
