Tight ends are a tricky position to manage in fantasy football.
If you're lucky enough to have a top-tier TE, then it's incredibly easy to set your lineup each week. However, most of us are not that lucky and need to search the waiver wire and soft matchups in search of a serviceable tight end that might have a chance of getting into the end zone.
To help you out, I put together this summary of our top 10 ranked tight ends for week 3.
For custom advice tailored to your fantasy team, our premium league sync tools instantly tell you who to start or sit every week.
