Tight Ends:

It is becoming more and more evident that the tight end position isn't overlooked these days. Just look at the last few seasons with Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham (when healthy) posting huge numbers, point totals as high as any position. These are players that can carry a team to the playoffs. Needless to say, a top No. 1 tight end that produces similar to an elite receiver can be a huge plus for fantasy teams.

The problem is about a handful of players fit that category while most are just capable starters for fantasy teams. So if you want one of those elite guys, act quickly. You'll likely have to use a pick in the first three rounds. And at this point, Gronk might be the only worthy player take really early in drafts. There are a lot of good options behind him but most aren't capable of scoring near his level. Teams will still do fine having guys like Tyler Eifert and Delanie Walker as their starters.
