Fantasy Football Rankings, Week 10 : Tight Ends

Thearon W. Henderson

Some of the strong fantasy tight end matchups are examined and our Week 10 Tight End Rankings.

The tight end position didn't stand out as much as we thought it would last week. Jason Witten, Heath Miller and Tony Gonzalez all finished with less than we thought they would. Jimmy Graham and Owen Daniels had solid weeks but could have made their owners even happier with a few more points. It will be interesting to see if the stud tight ends like Gronkowski, Hernandez and Gates can put up some big numbers facing some suspect pass defenses this week.

Brandon Myers topped all tight ends in points for Week 9 with seventeen points in standard leagues and twenty five in PPR. Those points came from eight receptions for fifty-nine yards and two touchdowns. Myers has suddenly boosted himself into the top ten tight ends for the season and looks to be a top waiver add in deeper leagues. Myers will face the Ravens this week and with the Raiders running back issues, he'll probably receive a solid amount of targets. Start him with confidence.

Jimmy Graham looks to have fully recovered from the ankle injury that he was dealing with. He caught eight passes for seventy-two yards and a touchdown against the Eagles. His opponent this week is a familiar one in the Falcons and Graham had a field day playing them last year. His totals were 124 yards and two touchdowns in their two meetings of the 2011 season. I think he'll have over a hundred yards and a touchdown in this week's matchup. Graham is back to being an elite starter at tight end.

My predictions for tight ends that will have a strong Week 10:

Vernon Davis, 49ers - Davis has not scored since Week 3 and that has worried some fantasy owners. I believe that this will be the week that he reaches pay dirt once again. Rob Gronkwoski really took it to the Rams defense in Week 8 and that leads me to believe that Davis will also do some damage.

Jermaine Gresham, Bengals - Gresham did not let fantasy owners down last week, catching six passes for 108 yards against the Broncos. The Giants had a difficult time with Jason Witten two weeks ago, so I would feel pretty good about putting Gresham into my lineup this week.

Brandon Myers, Raiders - Most of the reasons for Myers being included here are found above. I think this is just the start of a strong run of games for him and of course you'll want to be there when it starts.
