2015 DRAFT GUIDE

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 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.

But there remains a lot of talent after those top options. Guys like Jordan Reed, Delanie Walker and Larry Donnell can be had fairly late in drafts but still produce solid starting tight end numbers for fantasy teams. This is a valid reason why some fantasy teams wait on a tight end while loading up on other positions.
