Welcome to the Week 6 Tight End Rankings.

The bye losses are less than you’d have thought a week ago. Tyler Eifert is the latest TE to be lost for the season so he’s a cut now if you haven’t been paying attention this week. The bye comes at a good time for Charles Clay, who will miss a few weeks after knee surgery. Jimmy Graham is healthier than he was a few weeks ago but a week of rest is certainly welcome. Jason Witten is running on fumes and will probably be worth less if Zeke Elliott is not drawing defenses into the box.  We'll know more about how real Zeke's suspension is in the coming days.

A few tight ends are on the rise. In New York, both Evan Engram and ASJ are stepping into more playing time. Cameron Brate is becoming a legit weekly option. Hunter Henry appears to have finally surpassed Antonio Gates.

I’ll update these rankings on Saturday. I’ll keep grinding the tight ends and hopefully we’ll have a better feel for the final ranks.

Bye teams:

  • Bills
  • Bengals
  • Cowboys
  • Seahawks

These rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.

Rank PLAYER TEAM Cost Matchup PPG THE SKINNY
1 Rob Gronkowski NE 6800 NE@NYJ 01:00PM ET 16.7 He likes to crush the Jets and he’ll be back just in time to do it.
2 Travis Kelce KC 6100 PIT@KC 04:25PM ET 16.6 Out of concussion protocol and ready to mash.
3 Hunter Henry LAC 4100 LAC@OAK 04:25PM ET 7.56 Great play this week and he’s FINALLY playing as the lead guy. 59 snaps in Week 5 and a great matchup here.
4 Austin Seferian-Jenkins NYJ 4300 NE@NYJ 01:00PM ET 10.533 Will get plenty of usage and he is playing well.
5 Evan Engram NYG 3800 NYG@DEN 08:30PM ET 9 Volume is locked in now. He did nothing last week but he’s going to be playing a lot of receiver going forward. They have to use him that way given their depleted roster.
6 Delanie Walker TEN 4800 IND@TEN 08:30PM ET 10.3 Solid matchup.
7 Jordan Reed WAS 5000 SF@WAS 01:00PM ET 8.167 Good matchup, but can he play a full game?
8 Cameron Brate TB 3900 TB@ARI 04:05PM ET 13.375 Getting consistent targets and they will need him this week with Evans locked up with Peterson. I was too low on Brate. Gotta own up on this one.
9 Kyle Rudolph MIN 3800 GB@MIN 01:00PM ET 8.68 Looking better now and has a connection brewing with Keenum.
10 Martellus Bennett GB 3600 GB@MIN 01:00PM ET 7.88 Should get some love this week after an efficient Week 5.
11 Jack Doyle IND 3700 IND@TEN 08:30PM ET 8.075
12 Ryan Griffin HOU 4000 CLE@HOU 01:00PM ET 6.15 Should get some looks. He’s the guy now in Houston with no CJF.
13 Austin Hooper ATL 3500 MIA@ATL 01:00PM ET 9.6 No Sanu this week so he should be a good bet for targets.
14 Coby Fleener NO 3200 DET@NO 01:00PM ET 8.975
15 David Njoku CLE 3000 CLE@HOU 01:00PM ET 8.38 Needs more snaps but he looks great when he’s going after the football. This dude is a serious freak.
16 Benjamin Watson BAL 3300 CHI@BAL 01:00PM ET 7.76
17 Jared Cook OAK 3700 LAC@OAK 04:25PM ET 8.7 Tough to trust.

26 Eric Ebron DET 3000 DET@NO 01:00PM ET 5.46 Played even with Fells last week so impossible to trust.
