With the leap Mark Andrews and Kyle Pitts made in Week 5 plus the continued strong play of the likes of Dalton Schultz and Dawson Knox, you could make the case that the tight end position might look better right now than it has all season. Of course, with Pitts and George Kittle on bye, the position still feels awfully thin for Week 6. Which means it looks pretty typical. 

One exception is Zach Ertz, who looks in line for a big game Thursday night. With Dallas Goedert on the COVID list and not expected to play, Ertz should be in line for a healthy role in a game where the Eagles will likely have to pass quite a bit to keep up -- and against a Buccaneers defense that has given up plenty of points in the passing game. Ertz is ahead of all of the various waiver-wire hero tight ends of recent weeks for me.

Here are my tight end rankings for Week 6. To see the rankings of Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard, and Heath Cummings, make sure you head here. We'll be updating this throughout the week with new notes and rankings as we get news and the rankings get tweaked, so make sure you bookmark the page.
