Fantasy Football TE Rankings for Week 5

Travis Kelce has been a step ahead of everyone, but can Mark Andrews and Darren Waller make up ground on the TE1? Can T.J. Hockenson build off of his 40 fantasy point game? What about George Kittle, is he playing too much “left tackle” to be a productive fantasy football tight end? All of this and more are answered in this week’s edition of Fantasy Football TE Rankings.

1. Travis Kelce, Chiefs vs. Raiders

Unguardable, unstoppable, and the key to making this offense flow (other than Patrick Mahomes) Travis Kelce is solidifying himself as by far the best tight end in fantasy football this year and is showing no signs of slowing down. The Raiders have one of the worst secondaries in the NFL so expect Kelce to continue his scorching start to the season.

2. Mark Andrews, Ravens vs. Bengals

Mark Andrews had 29 fantasy points just two weeks ago when he found the end-zone twice, but last weekend the ultra-reliable end couldn’t get going resulting in a subpar 3.5 fantasy point day. Going up against a good Bengals defense, Andrews can only produce if Lamar Jackson goes off.

3. Darren Waller, Raiders vs. Chiefs

4. T.J. Hockenson, Lions vs. Patriots

Coming off of a remarkable 40 fantasy point performance where he pulled in 179 yards and 2 touchdowns, T.J. Hockenson could be due for another big day if Amon-Ra St. Brown is out again.

5. Gerald Everett, Chargers vs. Browns

Gerald Everett is becoming one of Justin Herbert’s favorite targets, especially in the red zone. After Mike Williams, Everett leads the Chargers in red-zone targets and should continue to produce as long as Herbert looks his way.

6. George Kittle, 49ers vs. Panthers

George Kittle almost caught his first touchdown of the season had Jimmy Garoppolo not thrown it a bit too high where Kittle couldn’t get his feet down. Either way, Kittle doesn’t get fantasy points for being the best blocking tight end of all time, but he should get more involved in the 49ers passing attack in the coming weeks. We have to remember that Kittle is coming off of an injury so his fantasy production will gradually increase.

7. Tyler Higbee, Rams vs. Cowboys

8. Zach Ertz, Cardinals vs. Eagles

Zach Ertz is yet again establishing himself as a consistent red-zone threat and has built a rapport with QB Kyler Murray. Although the Eagles have one of the best defenses in football, Murray will continue to look Ertz’s way making him a high-upside TE.

9. Dallas Goedert, Eagles vs. Cardinals

10. Will Dissly, Seahawks vs. Saints

11. Kyle Pitts, Falcons vs. Buccaneers

Talent-wise, Kyle Pitts is up there with Kittle, Kelce, and Andrews, but Marcus Mariota can’t seem to get Pitts the football resulting in already three subpar fantasy performances just four weeks into the season. Pitts simply isn’t getting targeted but the talent is there making him one of the higher upside TEs.

12. Dalton Schultz, Cowboys vs. Rams

13. David Njoku, Browns vs. Chargers

14. Robert Tonyan, Packers vs. Giants

15. Dawson Knox, Bills vs. Steelers

16. Pat Freiermuth, Steelers vs. Bills

17. Cole Kmet, Bears vs. Vikings

18. Irv Smith Jr., Vikings vs. Bears

19. Evan Engram, Jaguars vs. Texans

20. Hunter Henry, Patriots vs. Lions
