Fantasy Football Week 4 Tight End Rankings

Logan Thomas

The 2021-22 NFL season has already been extremely entertaining. It has shown fantasy trends that have started to develop and show what could happen the rest of the season. Already some players have proven to be fantasy relevant while some fantasy stars have been alarmingly disappointing to this point. Injuries have started to mount up this season. It is always a great idea to evaluate backup options so that way fantasy managers are prepared if star players miss time. Here are the Week 4 fantasy football tight end rankings.

*Ratings are subject to change due to injury reports or possible move to reserve/COVID-19 list*

(Check out the section below for details on players already rumored to possibly miss this week and how their replacement options rank for the week)

Must Start- a player who is in your lineup regardless of the matchup or most circumstances. They Will likely finish near the top of the league in points that week and in most weeks.
Starting TE1- a player who makes fantasy owners comfortable starting week after week. Regardless of the matchup, this player has a solid floor.
TD Dependent Starter- a player who may not be a lock to start for a team every week, but will start more times than not because of depth at the position. Their production is based on whether they can get in the end zone or not. It can be the difference between a top 10 performance or top 25 performance
Deep League Starter- a player whose ceiling isn’t high but should put up enough production to be started in deep leagues. When a player like this is started it is because their production though it will likely be low, will be better than a few options.
Leave on the Bench- a player who should be avoided in all lineups that week. Many times this player could even be left on waivers.

Possible Changes that can occur before Sunday

TE4 George Kittle, San Francisco 49ers

George Kittle has been dealing with a sore calf that has held him out of practice the past two days. If he was to miss this important divisional game against the Seahawks that would be huge. If he is out Ross Dwelley would start for the 49ers but there are likely better options on the waiver wire than him to start this week.

TE8 Rob Gronkowski, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

This is a very important game this week for Rob Gronkowski because he is making his return to New England. However, he is dealing with a rib injury that has held him out of practice Wednesday and Thursday. It is unlikely that Gronkowski will miss this game. But if he was to miss this game Cameron Brate would likely start for Tampa Bay and move up to TE32 between Jordan Akins and Dan Arnold.

TE12 Tyler Conklin, Minnesota Vikings

Vikings’ tight end Tyler Conklin had a career game last week. However, he is dealing with a glute and elbow issue. If Conklin was to miss time Christopher Herndon would join the list at TE40 between Cameron Brate and Tyler Kroft.

TE23 Gerald Everett, Seattle Seahawks

Gerald Everett was added to the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier this week. It is unlikely that he plays but has not been ruled out yet. If Everett misses this game Will Dissly will get the start and move up Everett’s slot at  TE23.

TE29 Jack Doyle, Indianapolis Colts

Colts’ tight end Jack Doyle has been extremely solid for them for the last couple of seasons. He missed practice the past two days with a back injury. If Doyle misses this game against the Dolphins Mo Alie-Cox would get the start and move up to TE32 between Jordan Akins and Dan Arnold. Rookie Kylen Granson becomes an interesting name to keep an eye on in that game as well.
