Fantasy Football Week 11 TE Rankings: Zach Ertz Back? Can Gronk & Brate Co-Exist?

Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings Week 11

Getty Tight end Zach Ertz #86 of the Philadelphia Eagles celebrates a touchdown.

Welcome to our Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 11 of the 2020 NFL regular season. Travis Kelce and Hayden Hurst, two top-seven scorers, return from a bye at a position desperate for consistency.

On Monday, the Philadelphia Eagles activated a player who could certainly add some much-needed production to the position, in Pro Bowler Zach Ertz. With his 21-day practice window now opened, Ertz could be returning to the field as early as this weekend.

Tight End Outlook Week 11

You don’t have to look much further than this past week to realize how unpredictable and underwhelming the TE position has been the season. No player topped 13.1 points in Week 10, while only eight players scored double-digit points. Of those eight players, half of them recorded three receptions or fewer and/or 31 yards or less.

Rob Gronkowski (TE4) has been one of the few consistent plays at the position, scoring a TD in four of his last five games. With that said, there’s still risk there, as he’s hauled in just three receptions over the past two weeks. Interestingly enough, that timeframe aligns with Antonio Brown’s arrival in Tampa Bay, who has seen the second-most targets by any Bucs pass-catcher over the past two weeks.

Gronk’s fellow Buccaneers TE, Cameron Brate (TE22), finished last week as TE4 with 12.1 points. With that said, he’s averaged just 1.75 targets per game over his last four contests. At best, Brate can be what Tim Wright was for Tom Brady during the 2014 season. The TE scored six TDs over a seven-game span with the Pats that year, yet was non-existent outside the red zone, hauling in just 20 non-scoring receptions.

While he may be ranked as our TE22, the difference between him and a borderline starter is not drastic, as the position is littered with question marks. His opponents this week, the Rams, have allowed 76 targets (4th-most in NFL) and 48 receptions (t-6th-most in NFL) to TEs this year.
