Below are my TE rankings for the rest of the season. You can find my QB, RB and WR rankings published earlier this week. You can also find last week’s TE rankings. These rankings are based on a 1/2 PPR scoring system and were done before the Thursday night game.
Last week’s rankings are in parenthesis
1. (1) Tony Gonzalez, ATL - Suffered from the bad day for the Falcons but he’ll bounce back.
2. (2) Rob Gronkowski, NE - Where are the TDs? He’s still getting a lot of looks and hopefully they’ll come.
3. (3) Jimmy Graham, NO - Bye week could get the Saints back on track.
4. (4) Vernon Davis, SF - This was done before the donut last night but for now he gets the 4 spot.
5. (5) Kyle Rudolph, MIN - Second highest TE numbers for week 6 and Ponder seems to have zeroed in on him.
6. (6) Jason Witten, DAL - Back to back big weeks for Witten who seems to be fully recovered from his injury.
7. (10) Aaron Hernandez, NE - Found the endzone in his first game back.
8. (16) Antonio Gates, SD - Finally the day we would expect from Gates.
9. (14) Heath Miller, PIT - Continue to be one of the most consistent TEs in the NFL.
10. (7) Owen Daniels, HOU - Mediocre numbers in a tough week for the Texans.
11. (8) Brandon Pettigrew, DET - Worst start of the year in what’s already been a disappointing season.
12. (11) Jared Cook, TEN - Still a decent week but I’m sure owners were hoping for more.
13. (20) Jermaine Gresham, CIN - Adds a TD and looks to be one of the more consistent options.
14. (19) Scott Chandler, BUF - Moves up mainly because so many other TEs are a let down but he’s had some monster weeks.
15. (13) Brent Celek, PHI - Another disappointing week.
16. (15) Fred Davis, WAS - Worst performance since week 2 and still 0 TDs.
17. (UR) Brandon Myers, OAK - 4 of 5 weeks he’s had at least 7 points. That’s better than your average TE it seems.
18. (UR) Joel Dreessen, DEN - Seems to have overtaken Tamme as the top TE option in Denver.
19. (9) Jermichael Finley, GB - I’m a Packer fan who loves Finley but he just can’t seem to figure it out.
20. (17) Dennis Pitta, BAL - Those first few weeks are fading fast.
