1Thomas,JuliusDENIND4523111000000023
Has proven to be quite the matchup nightmare for opposing defenses, when healthy. Clearly in line for an expanded role going forward, which fantasy owners are drafting him early in anticipation of. 
Tier Break
2Gronkowski,RobNEPMIA5802110000000020
Current reports have Gronkowski returning to action week 1. As always check his injury status for week 1 prior to starting. 
3Graham,JimmyNOSATL5832110000000020
Drew Brees' favorite target is a must-play. Graham has scored in three of his last four games against the Falcons. 
Tier Break
4Reed,JordanWASHOU5582110000010017
Outside of Garcon, Reed makes for the safest receiving start. With all the questions surrounding RG3 and the pressure he'll be facing up front, he's going to want to get the ball out quick. Reed will feed off of that formula. 
5Cameron,JordanCLEPIT4482110000000016
Cameron has had a very bad camp, so while we hesitate to hit the panic button this early, if possible we recommend looking elsewhere week one. Make him show it first. 
Tier Break
6Davis,VernonSFODAL4541100000000011
All positives coming out of camp for him this year. Reportedly looks fast and in shape despite his early holdout threats. He'll provide matchup problems as he always has and now has an offense willing to throw the ball downfield more often. 
7Ertz,ZachPHIJAC4431100000000010
 
8Pitta,DennisBALCIN5491100000000010
The Bengals don't have the greatest coverage options vs right ends, so Pitta could be in for a big week one, 
9Rudolph,KyleMINSTL4461100000000010
He's had a strong preseason, do not be afraid to start him if you were not able to secure any of the top fantasy tight ends. 
10Clay,CharlesMIANEP4401100000010010
Clay has been nursing a knee injury but is expected to play week 1. He will look to build upon last years success. 
11Graham,GarrettHOUWAS4461100000000010
Although Graham has been very quiet during the preseason, he is expected to have a large role in a new Houston offense that will frequently feature two-tight end formations. In addition, Ryan Fitzpatrick loves to throw to his tight ends. Until we see that upside from Graham during the regular season, however, keep him parked on your bench. 
12Miller,HeathPITCLE4451100000000010
Miller will find life more challenging as the Browns have upgraded their pass coverage vs tight ends,look elsewhere this week. 
13Gates,AntonioSDCARI4481100000000010
Although his fantasy production waned as the months went by, Gates experienced a career resurgence in the same vein of long-time teammate Philip Rivers in 2013. This offense plays to Gates' strengths, which in the case of this soft matchup can help your fantasy team. 
Tier Break
14Allen,DwayneINDDEN339110000000009
Allen will continue to share targets with Coby Fleener, which, unfortunately, caps the fantasy upside of both players. Consider Allen a low-end fantasy TE2 option as long as Fleener is healthy. 
15Lewis,MarcedesJACPHI231110000000009
Lewis is expected to continue operating mainly as a blocker and end-zone target. Consider him a low-end fantasy TE2. 
16Cook,JaredSTLMIN339110000000009
His value may be the biggest benefactor of the quarterback situation. HIll will be looking to limit mistakes and has enough experience to utilize the tight end in the passing game. He'll be on the waiver wire so keep an eye on him for a possible early addition. 
Tier Break
17Celek,BrentPHIJAC229110000000008
If Celek steals a touchdown here, Ertz's stock will take a major early season hit. Celek needs to stay on the line and help protect Foles in order for any of Eagles' tight ends to have consistent value. 
18Kendricks,LanceSTLMIN220110000000008
 
Tier Break
19Olsen,GregCARTBB451000000000005
Cam Newton's most trusted and experienced pass-catcher deserves a spot in your starting lineup. New Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith's Tampa-2 defensive scheme historically has been vulnerable to the tight end position. However, if Newton (ankle, rib) doesn't play, consider sitting Olsen. 
20Witten,JasonDALSFO552000000000005
Witten should probably see a bump in production with Romo being eager to get the ball out quickly to start the season. Until Romo is fully confident in his recovery, he'll be looking to Witten on fast, effective plays to move the ball. 
Tier Break
21Green,LadariusSDCARI347000000000004
Doesn't log quite as many snaps as Antonio Gates, although you better believe this coaching staff is committed to targeting Ladarius downfield. Probably the stash-away component of your tight end by committee approach, if that's how you roll. In other words, we wouldn't recommend rushing him into your lineup just yet. 
22Chandler,ScottBUFCHI340000000000004
Based on Manuel's erratic quarterback play Chandler has limited fantasy value. 
Tier Break
23Amaro,JaceNYJOAK335000000000003
Amaro has overtaken Cumberland for the number tight end position. As a rookie he will have up and down games. 
24Myers,BrandonTBBCAR335000000000003
Even though rookie second-round pick Austin Seferian-Jenkins has played better overall, Myers is penciled in as Tampa Bay's starting tight end - at least for now. Since he and Seferian-Jenkins likely will share snaps in the short-term, it's hard to like the plodding Myers as a fantasy starter. 
25Walker,DelanieTENKCC437000000000003
New Tennessee head coach Ken Whisenhunt's offense is supposed to be tight end friendly, but Walker has had a quiet preseason. Keep him parked on your bench for now. 
26Ebron,EricDETNYG330000000000003
It is probably too early to predict much for the rookie, but the throws will be coming his way very soon this season. 
27Bennett,MartellusCHIBUF338000000000003
He had his peaks and valleys in 2013, with so many mouths to feed in Chicago (Marshall, Jeffery, Forte), not a big ceiling on Bennett's numbers. 
28Eifert,TylerCINBAL332000000000003
Potential to be an everywhere eek starter, but he isn't there yet. Needs to prove to be more than just a red zone asset, which is not a bad problem to have, 
Tier Break
29Donnell,LarryNYGDET223000000000002
Come one. Seriously? There are 25 players you should be looking at before you even read up on a Giants' tight end. Poor shame... 
30Quarless,AndrewGBPSEA224000000000002
Expect very little here as he will be called upon to block more times than he will be to catch the ball. 
31Daniels,OwenBALCIN223000000000002
 
32Cumberland,JeffNYJOAK224000000000002
Cumberland has been sidelined with an Achilles injury and has fallen below Amaro on the depth chart. 
33Fasano,AnthonyKCCTEN222000000000002
While not as huge and uber athletic as second-year teammate Travis Kelce, ol' reliable doesn't whif on blocking assignments -- which of course has value in Andy Reid's scheme. 
34Fleener,CobyINDDEN223000000000002
It's the same old story with the Indianapolis tight ends: Fleener and Dwayne Allen will continue to cannibalize each other's fantasy value. Fleener rates as an unreliable low-end fantasy TE2 option as long as Allen is healthy. 
35Kelce,TravisKCCTEN226000000000002
There will be formations that get him onto the field with starting tight end Anthony Fasano, but keep in mind that 2013 was essentially a redshirt year for Kelce. Could well be targeted as often as anyone in this offense, come November, but patience is in order. 
36Miller,ZachSEAGBP224000000000002
Listed as number one on the depth chart, he is actually number two when it comes to passing game involvement. He is virtually non-existent for this offense in the passing game. His only value would be in TD only leagues as he makes brief appearances in the red zone. 
37Gresham,JermaineCINBAL329000000000002
The Ravens are a tough opponent, but the Jones injury offers an opportunity for him to earn a role early on and keep the second year player, Eifert, off his heels. 
38Rivera,MychalOAKNYJ328000000000002
Hands-down the best tight end on this roster, but that probably isn't saying much. Mychal has looked the part in camp, but like many of his teammates is held back by lackluster offensive line and quarterback play. 
39Willson,LukeSEAGBP221000000000002
Seattle doesn't utilize the tight end position as much as other teams in the league. Willson is the tight end of choice between the twenties but Miller is the red zone threat. Neither are consistent enough to take a chance playing. 
40Robinson,AdrienNYGDET221000000000002
 
41Pettigrew,BrandonDETNYG220000000000002
 
Tier Break
42Watson,BenNOSATL116000000000001
 
43Toilolo,LevineATLNOS215000000000001
The replacement for the retired Tony Gonzalez lacks elite receiving skills and is expected to operate mainly as a blocker. However, there are whispers that Atlanta plans to give the 6-foot-8, 260-pound Toilolo a tryout as an end-zone target. The second-year pro doesn't deserve a spot in your starting lineup or even on your roster right now, but keep an eye on him. 
44Fauria,JosephDETNYG110000000000001
[Outlook goes here] 
45Sudfeld,ZachNYJOAK114000000000001
 
46Paulsen,LoganWASHOU217000000000001
 
47Tamme,JacobDENIND217000000000001
It isn't size or athleticism that earns Tamme snaps, as much as his experience and reliability within the system. 
48Harbor,ClayJACPHI115000000000001
 
49Niklas,TroyARISDC114000000000001
 
50Dickson,EdCARTBB116000000000001
 
51Fiedorowicz,C.J.HOUWAS111000000000001
 
52Carlson,JohnARISDC115000000000001
Tight end hasn't been a positon of emphasis in this offense. Now on his third team, Carlson brings athleticism to the Cardinals but will sturggle to see targets with so many other weapons around him. 
53Housler,RobertARISDC110000000000001
 
54Rodgers,RichardGBPSEA116000000000001
Reports are indicating that he is the starter, but with so many other choices at the position, minimal fantasy impact if any expected here. 
55Wright,TimNEPMIA217000000000001
It will take some to time for Wright to develop his rapport with Brady. 
56McDonald,VanceSFODAL17000000000000
 
57Gragg,ChrisBUFCHI00000000000000

69Escobar,GavinDALSFO19000000000000
 
70Seferian-Jenkins,AustinTBBCAR04000000000000
Even though Tampa Bay's rookie second-round selection has impressed during the preseason, Seferian-Jenkins is expected to open the 2014 regular season as the backup to Brandon Myers. Until Seferian-Jenkins claims the starting job outright, he lacks fantasy appeal in what is expected to be a run-heavy offense. However, the rookie is definitely worth monitoring.

Hoomanawanui is primarily a blocking tight end and should not be rostered in any fantasy scoring format.

Sims has limited fantasy value as there are many receiving options ahead of him in the passing game.
