Fantasy Football TE Rankings: Week 5

Tight end is normally a top-heavy position, but there is some depth this year. If you're unsure of who to start this week, check out my rankings. Spoiler alert: you should probably play Jimmy Graham. I list the top 15, because those are the only ones who are usually worth starting.

Byes: Miami Dolphins & Oakland Raiders

Updated: Oct. 2

Other Rankings: QB, RB, WR, TE, DEF

Rank & Player Opponent Notes
1. Jimmy Graham, NO TB He'll be the top TE the majority of the season.
2. Julius Thomas, DEN ARI Thomas is always a high-end start.
3. Rob Gronkowski, NE CIN If Gronk is healthy, Gronk is starting for you.
4. Greg Olsen, CAR CHI Olsen is one of the few reliable targets in Carolina.
5. Martellus Bennett, CHI @CAR Bennett has played really well so far this season.
6. Delanie Walker, TEN CLE Walker is one of the few Titans who is performing well.
7. Larry Donnell, NYG ATL If you didn't start Donnell last week, don't feel bad. Donnell didn't even start himself.
8. Zach Ertz, PHI STL He's looked good so far. This could be his breakout season.
9. Travis Kelce, KC SF Kelce has been great so far and is worth starting.
10. Jordan Cameron, CLE @TEN You can play Cameron, but he's not a high-end starter.
11. Heath Miller, PIT @JAC Big Ben loves Miller.
12. Vernon Davis, SF KC Davis' spot will be determined by how healthy he is. If you own him, be cautious.
13. Jason Witten, DAL HOU He's had a slow start, but don't bail on him just yet.
14. Owen Daniels, @IND Daniels will be needed to step up with Pitta out.
15. Antonio Gates, SD NYJ Gates has had some nice performances and some not-so nice ones. You could do worse than Gates each week though.
