Week 8: Tight ends

Gronk goes on Thursday and a New coordinator in Detroit could make Lions Ebron more of a focal point.  Eifert is back off a bye facing Pittsburgh. Rudolph doesn’t do much.  But he scores.


1. Rob Gronkowski

2.Tyler Eifert

3. Greg Olsen

4. Martellus Bennett

5. Eric Ebron

Gronk and the Patriots are home Thursday against the Dolphins.  Miami has turned things around. Gronkowski is always a threat to go off.  Eifert was a major target of Dalton before the bye. He’ll continue to be in Pittsburgh.  Olsen is home again in primetime against the Colts.  He should have a big game after a mediocre week seven.  Bennett fresh from a week off will continue to be a top tight end.  Even against a tough Vikings defense.  Fresh off a 5 catch, 89 yard and a touchdown performance, Ebron should be targeted more in the Lions offense under new coordinator Jim Bob Cooter.

6. Travis Kelce

7. Gary Barnidge

8. Delanie Walker

9. Ladarius Green

10. Jimmy Graham

Kelce had another decent week.  He’s got to start getting in the end zone again.  Barnidge just keeps producing.  He will again at home even with the tough Cardinals defense in town.  Delanie Walker heads to Houston.  He was targeted 9 times last game and should be able to find holes against the Texans.  The Chargers as a whole didn’t play like I thought they would.  Green still managed to get in the end zone.  There’ll be plenty of opportunities again with Gates most likely out of the lineup.  Jimmy Graham followed up a great week 6 with another dud Thursday night.  He may be limited again if Dallas’s athletic Byron Jones is on him.

11. Kyle Rudolph

12. Jason Witten

13. Crockett Gilmore

14. Jordan Cameron
