Fantasy Fox: Top 30 PPR tight ends for Week 8

Published Oct. 23, 2014 10:15 a.m. ET

Here are my top 30 tight ends for Week 8, citing Points Per Reception leagues only.

This countdown doesn't lean on a particular stat. It's merely an educated best guess of which tight ends will tally the best combination of receptions, total yards, touchdowns and targets for the NFL's eighth weekend.

Regardless of how these rankings shake out every week, it shouldn't supersede two important factors that go into regular lineup consideration:

1. Always play your healthy superstars.
2. Always ride your gut instinct over a certain guru's analysis (read: plausible deniability).
