Tight end non-PPR rankings for Week 9 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best non-PPR tight ends going into Week 9 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

Week 8 is in the past and it is time to live in the now, man. The now is Week 9 and fantasy football continues it’s dead-eyed path toward the playoffs. Tight ends remain painfully low scoring for the most part, as we’ve even lost our stalwart Travis Kelce of late. He’ll bounce back though and hopefully we’ll be able to pick the perfect tight end each week here on out.

Bye weeks

The Detroit Lions, Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Football Team are on a Week 9 bye. T.J. Hockenson, Gerald Everett, Rob Gronkowski, and Ricky Seals-Jones will all be lazying around the house this weekend.

Tyler Conklin, Minnesota Vikings vs. Baltimore Ravens

Conklin has shown decent fantasy upside so far this season and this week he gets a Ravens defense that has been poor against tight ends. They’ve allowed the most non-PPR fantasy points to the position, while ranking 12th-best at stopping wide receivers this season.

Pat Freiermuth, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Chicago Bears

Freiermuth moved ahead of Eric Ebron before their bye week and then with Ebron missing Week 8 due to injury, Freiermuth saw an even bigger bump in snaps. If Ebron is out again, Freiermuth is a must start, but even if Ebron returns, he has value.
