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 is the number one ranked tight end for the second consecutive week. The return of Aaron Hernandez could open up the defense somewhat for Gronk, as the opposing coordinator will have two tight end threats to account for again.
Red Flag Alert- Brandon Pettigrew has been awful this season, and will likely continue to struggle this week against an Eagles team that has allowed just one touchdown to opposing tight ends this season.
Upside Play - The one glaring weakness in an otherwise stellar 49er defense is defending tight ends. For this reason, I think Martellus Bennett will be one of Eli’s favorite targets on Sunday.
