Week 6 – TE Rankings


Aaron Hernandez vs Cowboys – 

The Patriots got Aaron Hernandez back against the Jets, but at one point in the game, Hernandez had to head back to the locker room because of an injury. Thankfully, Hernandez returned to the game and finished with a respectable five receptions for 56 yards. This week the Patriots take on the Cowboys in what should be another high-scoring game, and a better fantasy day for Hernandez.

Close to a top five fantasy tight end these days, Tom Brady should have no problems make both Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski weekly starters in fantasy leagues. Unless you have Jimmy Graham, Vernon Davis, Gronkowski, Jermichael Finley or Jason Witten on your team, Hernandez is the tight end to start from this point forward.

Jermaine Gresham vs Colts –

Despite Jermaine Gresham’s low total of 21 yards last week, he racked up five receptions and scored his third touchdown on the season. It’s clear that the Bengals offense won’t be going away this year, and it’s time to give Andy Dalton some love as he’s led his team to victories over the Bills and the Jaguars on the road, in recent weeks.

With A.J. Green drawing attention on the outside, Gresham will continue to be Dalton No.2 option in the passing game and why not as the first-round pick from 2010, is a nice target to target. Before his injury with the Sooners, Gresham was clearly a weekly threat for Sam Bradford in college, and he has the skills to be a weekly starter in fantasy leagues. Consider Gresham a respectable starter moving forward, and a nice dynasty hold.

    Would you pick up Aaron Hernadez over Brandon Pettigrew for a TE for the rest of the season?? Will there be enough action for both Hernandez and Gronk to score nice points???

  • Sean Douglas

    To the second question, absolutely. Brady is targeting his tight ends as the second and third options in the passing game and that won’t change this year.

    To the first question, I would look to Hernandez as the starter for now, but Pettigrew is playing well and should be held on your roster for the rest of the season. As we’ve seen in already from Hernandez, anyone can fall to injury, but this kid is very talented and Brady is likely to win another MVP if Aaron Rodgers should have a slow stretch.
