New England Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski Is On The Bye This Week. Who Should You Start In Your Fantasy Lineup Instead?

With perennial No. 1 fantasy tight end Rob Gronkowski out this week due to a bye, the tight end playing field is certainly more even. Let’s take a look at some of the best options to use in your fantasy lineup for Week 4.

3 Must-Start Tight End This Week

Martellus Bennett – Chicago Bears
Wrist StretchThe Raiders are awful against tight ends. For example, Gary Barnidge went off against Oakland last week. That’s right, Gary Barnidge. Who the hell is that?! With the Bears’ receiving corps still ailing, Martellus should receive a ton of targets and is the best fantasy option at tight end this weekend.

Charles Clay – Buffalo Bills
Wrist StretchTyrod Taylor has a great connection with Mr. Clay. The duo have been quite productive early in the season. The Bills also face the Giants who, putting it nicely, have a questionable defense. With receiver Sammy Watkins likely out, Clay has a chance to be the Bills’ No. 1 receiving option.

Travis Kelce – Kansas City Chiefs
Wrist StretchKansas City quarterback Alex Smith seems afraid to throw to wide receivers in the red zone. This bodes well for Kelce owners, as the tight end has emerged as the Chiefs’ No. 1 red zone option. He should capitalize this Sunday against the Bengals.

Tight End ‘Bust’ Of The Week

Jordan Cameron – Miami Dolphins
Wrist StretchJordan Cameron’s start with the Miami Dolphins hasn’t exactly gone according to plan. With a nagging groin injury, Cameron has yet to catch more than four passes in a game and now faces the incredibly stingy New York Jets defense. In what will probably be a low-scoring game, steer clear of Cameron this week.

Zach Ertz – Philadelphia Eagles
Wrist StretchWhile fantasy owners don’t exactly consider Ertz to be a sleeper pick, the Philadelphia tight end has been borderline unusable through three weeks. However, this will be the week the Eagles offense lives up to its immense potential, and Ertz will be a big reason why. Don’t give up on him yet.
