Fantasy football rankings, Week 2: Tight ends

If you didn't have Tyler Eifert or Austin Seferian-Jenkins on your roster this week, don't worry. The Week 2 tight end rankings will help you find the next potential streaming option.

Rob Gronkowski universally came off the board some time during the first round of most drafts, and rightfully so. His 94 yards and three touchdowns against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1 justified anyone who was having second thoughts about nabbing a tight end in the top ten. If you weren't fortunate to see him fall to you, however, the plan was simple. It was stated in our fantasy football draft guide at the beginning of the year and remains true to this day.

By drafting [Le'Veon] Bell first, you've now secured your RB1 ... From there, simply draft the rest of your skill positions and wait on tight end. No, really. WAIT.

Let's say you had followed that mantra. If so, you were probably fortunate enough to draft Austin Seferian-Jenkins (five receptions, 110 yards, two touchdowns) during the waning rounds. If that wasn't the case, maybe you were the beneficiary of Tyler Eifert and his 100-yard, two-touchdown performance against the Oakland Raiders. And even if those two didn't fall to you, the crop of Jordan Reed, Eric Ebron and Ladarius Green each scored a touchdown before calling it a day with double-digit fantasy points.

Moving forward, the plan remains the same. It would be nice to not have to stress over who starts at tight end for you, but at least you know a 20-plus point plug-in is available each and every week. Our Week 2 tight end rankings should help you find him.
