Week 4 Tight End (TE) Rankings and Analysis – Fantasy Football 2013

Jordan Cameron continued his magic, Jimmy Graham was Jimmy Graham, and Heath Miller returned to the field in week 3.  The biggest story of week 4 will most likely be the potential return of Rob Gronkowski.  Although the Patriots are a quiet 3-0, Tom Brady is desperate for the return of his hulk-sized target.

Rank Player Team Status Week 4
Avg. Points Per Week Analysis
1 Jimmy Graham NO MIA 19.9 Head and shoulders above any other TE in the league. What a monster.
2 Rob Gronkowski NE Q @ATL - Should be back this week. Who is most excited: Gronk, Tom Brady, or Gronk fantasy owners?
3 Jason Witten DAL @SD 9.0 Murray stole the show in week 3, but Witten was the most productive receiver in yards and tied for the most targets. He’s a safe play.
4 Jordan Cameron CLE CIN 17.0 Raise your hand if you’re on the Cameron bandwagon! I certainly am. This guy is putting the Browns offense on his back.
5 Vernon Davis SF Q @STL 11.9 Kaepernick desperately needs his big guy back. If healthy, he will see plenty of targets.
6 Julius Thomas DEN PHI 14.5 Plenty of balls and points to go around in this offense. Peyton should pick apart the Eagles secondary without a problem.
7 Antonio Gates SD DAL 8.9 Putting together another very nice season so far. An improved Rivers will get Gates involved every game.
8 Martellus Bennett CHI @DET 10.5 Poor showing in week 3, but something tells me this game will be a shootout, and Bennett is a solid red zone target.
9 Owen Daniels HOU SEA 10.0 Saw 9 targets in week 3, but only went for 29 yards. The Texans will have to pass against a red hot Seahawks defense in order to beat them.
10 Tony Gonzalez ATL NE 5.1 Maybe age is catching up with him after all. Patriots D has been stout so far. Wouldn’t be surprised if he produced another stinker.
11 Jared Cook STL SF 9.8 Set the bar high for himself in week 1, but had the 2nd most targets and yards for the Rams in week 3. He’s a decent second tier TE. The 49ers are having issues all around.
12 Heath Miller PIT P @MIN 3.5 Big Ben’s most trusted target is back and looked pretty good in his first outing.  A great matchup against a Vikings defense that has yielded 96 points in 3 games.
13 Brandon Myers NYG @KC 7.8 Was it the New York or San Francisco Giants that played the Panthers in week 3? They are sledding downhill quickly. Arrowhead Stadium is only going to make matters worse.
14 Charles Clay MIA @NO 8.8 He has established himself as someone who will always be in the mix. A tough matchup against a much improved Saints defense.
15 Scott Chandler BUF BAL 6.2 Had a very nice game vs. the Jets.  Maybe Manuel is gaining trust in him. He’s had 18 targets in 3 games. Not too shabby.
16 Kyle Rudolph MIN PIT 5.2 Tied for most targets in week 3, but doesn’t have enough speed to get long catches.  He’s quite an uncomfortable play each week.
17 Coby Fleener IND @JAC 5.0 It looks like the Colts are going to be a run-first offense, which hurts Fleener’s value quite a bit. Especially if the RBs get all the red zone touches.
18 Delanie Walker TEN NYJ 5.3 Appears to have a nice hand in the Titans passing attack. A tough matchup against a solid Jets defense.
19 Jermaine Gresham CIN @CLE 3.6 Seems to be targeted just a bit more than Eifert. Opportunities should come often against the Browns, especially with Joe Haden slowing down AJ Green.
20 Zach Miller SEA @HOU 6.3 He did have two goal line scores, which was a great sign, but it was against the Jaguars. The Texans should play with a fire this game after an awful showing against the Ravens.

**BYE WEEK: Jermichael Finley (Packers), Greg Olsen (Panthers)**

Dropped from rankings: Tyler Eifert, Brandon Pettigrew, Garrett Graham
