Week 9 Bye Teams: Detroit, Minnesota, Carolina, Jacksonville
The tight end position in fantasy football used to be dominated by the same cast of characters. Antonio Gates, Dallas Clark, Jason Witten, Tony Gonzalez ...with a few others in and out over the years. Now, we're getting plenty of young blood at the position, making it easier to change up your week-to-week matchups. Who are the top guys for Week 9.
Our partner, numberfire.com, has provided us with projections for 15 top-rated tight ends in Week 9. They determine their projections by feeding the stats and matchups into the computer, and the computer responds with its best estimate.
These projections are live and may change before Sunday's action. Come back over the next few days until game time to see where your players stand.
Jimmy Graham is the new king at the tight end position, once again projecting as the top-rated guy this week. Familiar faces Jason Witten and Antonio Gates are also reliable plays this week. Check back later this week as the projections will change as we get more information about Week 9.
* Fantasy Points Projections are based on the Yahoo! and ESPN default scoring settings. Quarterbacks are scored with 1 point for every 25 passing yards, and 4 points for every touchdown. For running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, they are scored with 1 point for every 10 total yards, and 6 points for every touchdown. This is a non-PPR projection.
Injured players appear on the list, this is their projection IF they play.
