article imageNFL Fantasy Football: Week 3 tight end rankings

By Larry Seely     Sep 21, 2015 in Sports
It was just a few years back that the tight end become a big part of fantasy football, but injuries and age have had more teams relying on bigger wide receivers.
But one thing we learn about the NFL, trends always seem to come full circle and with the dominating start of Rob Gronkowski this season, the position could once again become a vital part of the game.
'Gronk' already has over 200 yards receiving and a league-leading four touchdowns. With a matchup against the Jaguars in week 3, the Patriots star is a must-start player for any owner lucky enough to have drafted him before the year began.
In the latest player rankings, finding the number two tight end takes some work and this is where researching stats and teams can make a big difference for owners.
Travis Kelce of Kansas City is off to a good start, averaging 82 yards and a score through two games. This week Kansas City faces Green Bay, a game that figures to see plenty of scoring, making the Chiefs tight end a solid option and a player that could have a huge game if it all goes as planned.
Eric Ebron didn't have a big rookie year for Detroit in 2014, but the youngster is starting to play like a first round draft choice with two touchdown catches in 2015. With ten targets last week, Ebron is becoming a favorite of Mathew Stafford and with a high scoring game against Denver expected on Sunday, the Lions youngster could have his best game of the year, giving fantasy football owners some good points in week 3.
For those looking for help, Baltimore tight end Crockett Gillmore has become a legitimate weapon. This past weekend he had two touchdowns and over 80 yards receiving and surprisingly the Ravens tight end is still available on the waiver wire in a majority of leagues.
