Fantasy TE PPR Rankings Week 5: Who to start with, sit as a tight end in fantasy football

We’ve been into the regular season for a month and the tight ends as a whole have been disappointing. We’re having a few breakdowns here and there though, and maybe, just maybe, we can begin to feel secure about the pecking order after the elites at the top. Our week 5 TE PPR fantasy rankings are based on pairings and one-month stats, but in this position, we know that the first five weeks can come out of nowhere (see CJ Uzomah and Mo Alie-Cox).

Rob Gronkowski (ribs) could be out for several weeks with the bye weeks beginning in Week 6, and Logan Thomas suffered a hamstring injury that left him out for most of Week 4. This poor position is about to lose even more weight. That’s why all the best players will be in the rosters, regardless of how disappointing they have been or how difficult their matchups are. George Kittle (@ Cardinals) and even Noah Fant (@ Steelers) should be in their rosters despite potentially having new quarterbacks this week.

However, players in the start or sit bubble, like Dallas Goedert (@ Panthers), deserve concern. Goedert looked like it could be a must-start each week heading into the season, but we’ve seen just how pedestrian the Eagles’ passing offense is, and the Panthers have been one of the best defenders in football. Still, last week they fought mightily against Dallas tight ends, so Goedert is still in play as both he and Zach Ertz appear to be the main targets near the goal line.

Mike Gesicki (@ Buccaneers), Dalton Schultz (vs. Giants), Dawson Knox (@ Chiefs), Tyler Conklin (vs. Lions) and Week 4 breakout CJ Uzomah (vs. Packers) appear to have higher ceilings this week. Schultz benefits from playing a mediocre defense for the Giants; Gesicki gets a pass defense from the Bucs that has been torched and Uzomah plays the Packers in what should be a high-scoring affair. Uzomah only has a week of high-level play, but the Packers have given up the third-most fantasy points to tight ends heading into Week 4. We’re not as convinced of him as Schultz and Knox, so start with his It’s your own risk, but why play it safe and start with just the guys with “safe floors” when those floors are five to six points? We should note that Schultz takes a hit in the PPR leagues, while Knox and Uzomah take light hits.

Hunter Henry (@ Houston) and Jonnu Smith (@ Houston) had been the biggest disappointments until they both scored last week, but come on, it’s the Texans. Henry seems like the nominal “leader” here, but you never know how things will play out in any given week.

Injury add-ins Cameron Brate (vs. Dolphins) and Ricky Seals-Jones (vs. Saints) have produced in the past, making them intriguing boom-bust plays. You can also try Evan Engram (against Cowboys) if the Giants’ WRs continue to deal with injuries. However, Engram was unable to do anything the last two weeks so it would really be reliant on garbage time production if it started it.
