Week 10 Tight End Rankings - PPR Leagues

Is Delanie Walker a top-5 option? What should we make of Heath Miller without Big Ben? And, why you should drop Jordan Cameron.

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

I really wanted to rank Tyler Eifert as my number one this week, but Rob Gronkowski draws a great matchup against the New York Giants. Therefore, he remains my number one. Maybe one day he will fall, but today is not that day. But if you own either, you're starting them, so it's not too big of a distinction. Let's get to the rankings list and some guys further down the list.

BYE WEEK: Atlanta, Indianapolis, San Diego, San Francisco.

A tight end I like this week is Delanie Walker. Walker has been the main guy all season in Tennessee all year, but with Mariota back under center his production only increases. We saw what the two were capable of together before the injury to Mariota and we saw what happened last week when he returned. Walker had the best day of his season posting seven catches for 95 yards and two touchdowns (33 points in PPR). Their relationship will only get stronger as the season goes on and Walker should be a top-5 fantasy tight end.

A guy who falls this week: Heath Miller. When Landry Jones is under center, Miller only has two catches on four targets in three games, according to ESPN Stats & Info. Needless to say, that's not very enticing in a PPR League. I wouldn't drop Miller because Ben Roethlisberger should come back after their bye week. When Big Ben is in Miller is a top-15 option, but with Jones under center, bench Miller and look for other options.

If you own Jordan Cameron, you're wasting a bench spot. Drop him. In the last three weeks, Cameron has had a whopping ten fantasy points. His hasn't lived up to his Cleveland days and he won't. I thought the new coaching change in Miami would revitalize Cameron's disappointing season, but it only made it worse. Lamar Miller has become the focal point of this offense and it has limited Cameron's roll. Last week, blocking tight end Dion Sims played more snaps than Cameron. He's not a viable option. Drop him and pick someone up who can add value to your team.
