Let’s take a look in the Week 8 top Fantast Football Tight End plays.
1. Rob Gronkowski, Patriots
Gronk returns to the top of the heap after being #3 last week. He’s earned it! He has six TDs in six games so far and has gone over 90 yards four times including last week when he looked unstoppable. On National TV, against a sketchy Miami defense Gronk is a lock for a huge week. 8-10 catches for 100 yards and a TD, probably two is what I see.
2. Greg Olsen, Panthers
Cam Newton has been playing very well this year – his most trusted weapon by far has been Greg Olsen who should have his way with a pretty bad Indianapolis defense. He had just three catches for 65 yards last week but has two games already this year of 130+ yards. Olsen has made some very good defenses look ordinary – imagine what he’ll do with Indy’s!
3. Tyler Eifert, Bengals
Eifert and the Bengals arrive off their bye to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Big Ben’s return. The Bengals are going to have to throw in this one to keep up with a Steelers offense that is ready to burst.
My guess is that Eifert is the main target against a pretty bad Pittsburgh secondary. He has six TDs on the year and is the main Red Zone threat.
Another 6 catches for 90 yards and a TD isn’t too much to ask here.
4. Travis Kelce, Chiefs
Has been a very trusted target for Alex Smith – his role in the passing games has certainly hit a different level. He hasn’t scored since Week 1 which is a bit of a concern but with Jamaal Charles factor should work in his favor.
Kelce is an immense talent – 6 catches, 80 yards and a TD this week.
5. Martellus Bennett, Bears
Is a target monster for the Bears and this team likes to throw the ball. Alshon Jeffery’s return only helps his cause here – there won’t be as much attention on him this week against the Vikings.
Bennett has been a consistent producer on what has been a rotating Bears offense this year – his patience is about to be rewarded.
