Week 5 Tight End Rankings

Week 5 Tight End Rankings

Oct 4, 2012




Kramerica Sports weekly player rankings are based on Yahoo Sports standard scoring settings.

Positional ranks are based on numerous factors, including opposing defense, historical data, player health, gut feelings, and other classified variables.

Play of the Week- Rob Gronkowski delivered his first big fantasy performance of the season last week against Buffalo, catching 5 balls for 104 yards and a touchdown. Look for him to continue his solid play against a Denver defense that has given up the seventh most points to opposing tight ends.

Red Flag Alert- Antonio Gates has been a disappointment this season, failing to catch a touchdown in his first three games. Although the Saints have been awful on defense this season, they have been tough against opposing tight ends and could give Gates another tough performance.

Upside Play - Jacob Tamme is a nice upside play this week on the road against New England. The contest should be high-scoring, and the Pats have been somewhat suspect against tight ends.
