More Consistency Player Rankings:  Quarterback  |  Running Back  |  Wide Receiver  |   Tight End

Below lists out each notable tight end who played at least eight games and their categories list the number of games in which they had at least the stated topic. The consistency rating comes from the number of times where they had either a 50 yards game and/or a touchdown game, all divided by the number of games that they played.

The Column for "Either" shows how many times they had either 50 yards and/or a touchdown game.

Jimmy Graham and Jason Witten were a step up from the others last year and now that Heath Miller is returning from injury and Rob Gronkowski is no lock to start healthy it makes more change likely this year. Both Witten and Gonzalez and playing far better than anyone else their age. Aaron Hernandez is an obvious nonfactor. Getting consistent stats from your tight end is going to be much more challenging this year after Graham, Gonzalez and Witten are off the board.
