Week 4 Tight End (TE) Rankings and Analysis – Fantasy Football 2013
- Updated: September 23, 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.

|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
