Anyone with a tight end on a bye week can attest to how agonizingly difficult it can be to find a suitable replacement, especially in a season where no one at the position besides Rob Gronkowski is really setting the world on fire.
In past years, fantasy players could count on Julius Thomas, Jimmy Graham and Antonio Gates for double-digit touchdowns. This year, the cupboard is barer.
Sure, there have been some solid performances from players like Greg Olsen and Travis Kelce, and Graham is starting to show some signs of life in Seattle. But the challenge of remaining competitive at the position will be difficult going forward as bye weeks start this week (depriving many Gronkowski owners of their best player).
So, click the captions above for five tight end plays that can help you weather a bye week.
