Week 1 TE Rankings - Standard Leagues

Heath ranks the top 32 tight ends for the first week of fantasy football.

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Week 1 TE Rankings are here! Tyler Eifert easily makes my top 10 on the heels of an impressive training camp. Jordan Cameron barely makes it in due to his lackluster preseason. Delanie Walker is a sneaky top ten play against a soft Tampa Bay defense, while Dwayne Allen has a tough road game this week against Buffalo. Zach Ertz is shaping up as a game-time decision, but even if he plays I am not that interested. Martellus Bennett is one of my favorite plays of the week, as Alshon Jeffery is still hobbled and the Bears should be chasing the Packers most of the day. Josh Hill is a dark horse out in the desert of Arizona, so look his way if you are already desperate. Finally, Heath Miller didn't make it too high up my board, but you could do worse with a longshot play since Martavis Bryant is out and that game is likely a shootout. I don't personally enjoy rolling with aging veterans, but if you're looking Miller's way in Week 1 I understand your reasoning. Good luck to you this season, ladies and gents!
