The Week 8 tight end rankings are here help you make tough decisions this week. Whether it is deciding which of your options to start with or who you should be looking to pick up this week to cover your byes and injuries. Our team will be here the rest of the year ranking the offensive positions, defensive positions, and team defense to try and help you win your fantasy football leagues.
Ben Watson, NO @ MIN (47%)
Watson had a nice week against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7. He saw a joint season high six targets, catching them all for 43 yards and a touchdown. At his age that sort of return is probably his ceiling. Howeverm he has caught 23 of his 28 targets and therefore will have Drew Brees‘ trust down in the red zone. The innesota Vikings are surrendering an average of 12.5 points per game to tight ends and I think Watson can get close to that mark this week.
C.J. Uzomah, CIN vs. TB (50%)
I was a little disappointed in the return from Uzomah last week. He saw just two targets for 13 yards but managed to at least salvage his day with a touchdown. The trouble for him was the Bengals were out of the game early and never really got going. This week he faces the worst ranked team in the NFL against the tight end. The Buccaneers are the only team surrendering over an average of 16 fantasy points a tight ends. In the last two weeks we have seen both Austin Hooper and David Njoku have good weeks against them. Uzomah is not of the same caliber but he should be able to make an impact for your fantasy team this week.

Ricky Seals-Jones, ARI vs. SF (25%)
Like Uzomah, Seals-Jones is back here for another week despite a rough Week 7. Much like for Uzomah the game against the Broncos got out of hand and the second half was basically a write off for all involved. This week Seal-Jones gets to face the 49ers, who are surrendering over 10 points per game to tight ends. They jointly lead the league in average touchdowns for tight ends per game with 0.7 so Seals-Jones should have a decent chance to score this week.
