The most overlooked position on most fantasy teams is the tight end. There are weeks when scoring from the tight end position can lead to big points for your team. There will also be weeks when the tight end will produce nothing and leave you with a disappointing loss to an inferior team.
The NFL is becoming a tight end dominant league again as teams are starting to utilize two tight ends to neutralize the defense and make the defensive fronts predictable. Tight ends are getting faster and more agile. They are now just big wide receivers and run incredible forty yard dash times for big men. However when they are on the field, you can’t bring in that extra cornerback because they will just run the ball and pound you off the ball.
Rob Gronkowski – No doubt the go to guy for Tom Brady. He will get plenty of targets as the Pats continue the two tight end sets.
Jimmy Graham – The undisputed favorite target of Drew Brees. Well worth a grab this early in the draft.
Vernon Davis – His value will increase as the outside receivers for the niners continue to improve. He is by far the most talented at this position in the NFL.
Jason Witten – Tony Romo’s security blanket will get his touches.
Antonio Gates – He’s just steady. He’s not what he was but what he was is unachievable by anyone at this point.
Jermichael Finley – We keep waiting for this guy to break out. If he can stay healthy the sky is the limit.
Fred Davis – You can’t hold this young guy down. Davis will get plenty of touches now as he will be the best matchup on the field for RGIII to exploit.
Aaron Hernandez – Honestly I think he may be the tight end who erupts for New England. The only reason his value drops is because he is paired up with Gronkowski.
Tony Gonzalez – The savvy veteran just continues to show dominance as a go to guy.
Brent Celek – He has to come back into the fold for the Eagles to be successful. Maybe now the offensive line can protect Vick and he can return to running routes instead of playing like an offensive tackle.
Jacob Tamme – Hooking back up with Manning in Denver is good for this guy. The last time they played together, Tamme looked like an unstoppable force.
Dustin Keller – He should be fine this year as teams load up the box to stop the run. Keller should get more outside linebackers covering him again.
Greg Olsen – If Cam Newton can get more time in the pocket, Olsen will be featured a lot in the offense.
Mercedes Lewis – He shows signs of being a great one but he’s just not consistent.
