Tight Ends

1

Jimmy Graham

New Orleans Saints

Jimmy Graham

Jimmy Graham is Drew Brees' top receiving option. He's physical, athletic and as he showed that he deserves the top spot among all tight ends. While others may argue that Gronk is more dominant, with the number of injuries Gronk has had, I'd rather have Graham over Gronk.

Rob Gronkowski

New England Patriots

Rob Gronkowski

I wish Gronk didn't have the multiple surgeries and injuries that he has had over the past few years. He just seems one pass away from landing on IR. For that reason, he's the No. 2 tight end for me. For those who throw risk to the wind, Gronk is your choice. If he plays all 16, he'll most likely outscore Graham. That's just too big of an "if" for me.

Julius Thomas

Denver Broncos

Antonio Gates

San Diego Chargers

Greg Olsen

Carolina Panthers

Olsen is going to have to be a steady producer in an offense that lacks a true No. 1 wide receiver. I don't value Kelvin Benjamin as high as others do. I think more of the receiving duties will fall upon Olsen, I just hope he can keep up.

Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs

7

Martellus Bennett

New York Giants

Jason Witten

Dallas Cowboys

Jason Witten

Witten is as tough as the come and for fantasy purposes, as consistent as any tight end in the game. There are a lot of pass-catching options in Dallas, but Witten always manages to get his numbers.

Heath Miller

Pittsburgh Steelers

10

Kyle Rudolph

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings paid Rudolph for what he's going to do, not for what he's done. And if you draft him, that's the same way you need to look at him. You're drafting potential, which at his ADP is not too costly.

Owen Daniels

Houston Texans

Fred Davis

Washington Redskins

Fred Davis

It's unclear whether Pierre Garcon (foot) will suit up in Week 4. If he does, Davis still has value in what appears to be an electrifying offense led by RGIII. If Garcon is unable to play, then Davis' upside for Week 4 sky-rockets. He will be RGIII's No. 1 target with Garcon sidelined.

13

Jacob Tamme

Denver Broncos

Peyton Manning showed that he's close to his old self. He reintroduced himself well on Sunday Night Football. Manning will be looking for his tight end more and more, and Tamme is that guy. Tamme's moving up the ranks.

Jared Cook

Tennessee Titans

Jermaine Gresham

Cincinnati Bengals

Julius Thomas

Denver Broncos

Kellen Winslow

Seattle Seahawks

Cedric Hopkins runs this sports law/fantasy football blog. If you have issues with it, it's all his fault. Cedric was an athlete-student at the University of New Mexico (Basketball - Go Lobos!). He then morphed into a student-athlete when he attended law school in San Diego. Age replaced athleticism and now he writes appellate briefs for criminals (alleged criminals, of course) in state and federal cases, including writing U.S. Supreme Court briefs.

For years Cedric has researched and written about legal issues but maintained a love for sports. With FieldandCourt.com, he's combining his two passions: researching and writing about sports. When he's not in court arguing a case before a judge (or writing about himself in the third person), he'll be doing the same with his articles on FieldandCourt.com.
