2021 Fantasy Football:  Week 3 Tight End Rankings

The tight end position can be one of the most volatile ones in all of fantasy football on a weekly basis.  Look no further than Week 2, where Foster Moreau, Maxx Williams, Jack Doyle, Ricky Seals-Jones, Dawson Knox, and Dan Arnold all finished as top-12 tight ends.  I don’t expect a repeat performance by any of these guys this week, with none cracking the top-15 in my Week 3 Tight End Rankings.

What?! Your league isn’t hosted on Fantrax? Inconceivable! Look at the incredible features Fantrax offers and then compare it to the competition. It’s pretty obvious that Fantrax is the right choice.

Week 3 Tight End Notes

Don’t sweat George Kittle’s slow start to the season.  More volume should come, especially with all the injuries to the 49ers’ backfield.  Kittle faces off against the Packers who just gave up 66 yards and a touchdown to T.J. Hockenson in Week 2.

Another week, another two-touchdown game for Rob Gronkowski.  While we shouldn’t expect this touchdown pace to continue, Gronk has been in vintage form.  He’s a weekly top-eight tight end at this point.

Logan Thomas and Tyler Higbee are the only tight ends who have played 100 percent of snaps on the season.  They both are weekly set-it-and-forget-it top-12 options.

Jared Cook has at least five targets per game, and his touchdown last week was called back due to a penalty.  He’s seeing volume in a high-octane offense and could find pay dirt in Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Zach Ertz was placed on the COVID-19 list earlier this week.  Be sure to monitor his status.  If he misses Week 3, Dallas Goedert is a top-10 option in a prime Monday night matchup against the Cowboys.

It’s worth keeping an eye on Pat Freiermuth’s usage in Week 3.  He’s out-snapped Eric Ebron each week and looks like the tight end to roster in Pittsburgh.  Last season, Ebron was targeted at least five times in 12-out-of-15 games played.  There could be some sneaky volume here.
