Week 3 Player Fantasy Rankings - Tight Ends

By Jesse Pantuosco, Fantasy Sports Writer

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Yo soy fiesta?

Well, I wouldn't get my hopes up.

The one-man party that is Robert James Gronkowski may have to wait another week. At least that's what Michael Whitmer of the Boston Globe is saying:

"Gronkowski is healthy enough to play, but the Patriots want to get him more practice time before suiting up in a game. For that reason ... the Patriots are leaning toward keeping Gronkowski out of Sunday's home game with the Buccaneers."

So take down the streamers and put away the balloons. Gronk-Fest 2013 will have to be rescheduled.

Don't look so glum, Pats fans. You still have Michael Hoomanawanu - well whatever his name is.

While the Patriots will probably have to suffer through another Gronk-less week, the Steelers can look forward to the return of Heath Miller.

The two-time Pro Bowler is listed as probable for Sunday night's game against Chicago. Miller isn't the flashiest tight end in existence but he's big, strong and usually one of Ben Roethlisberger's most reliable targets (career-high 816 receiving yards last season).

The trouble is that Miller is coming off of a torn ACL. And unlike Adrian Peterson, Miller does not have super-healing powers. If watching two weeks of Robert Griffin III has taught us anything it's that this is not an easy injury to recover from. That's why Miller is ranked outside of our top 20 heading into Week 3.
