Name Pos Team Age Yrs

Pos. Rank
Martellus Bennett TE CHI 27 6 TE - #10
Martellus Bennett signed a four-year, $20 million contract last offseason and posted a solid 2013 season, finishing with 65 catches for 759 yards and five touchdowns. The Black Unicorn finished as the 11th-best fantasy TE and should be considered a borderline TE1 (he saw the eighth most targets among tight ends during his first season in Chicago). Bennett is a safe... Read More
Charles Clay Contract Year Player TE MIA 25 3 TE - #11
THE UPSIDE IS REAL: The emergence of Charles Clay came out of nowhere. He had a very good 2013 season, catching 69 passes for 759 yards and six touchdowns; also adding a rushing touchdown. Clay was voted by the players No. 89 on the NFL's Top 100 Players list. He does everything well, and the Dolphins plan on involving him in the offense even more.... Read More
Greg Olsen TE CAR 29 7 TE - #9
Olsen caught 73 passes for 816 yards in 2013. The only thing holding him back from being an elite tight end is a lack of touchdowns throughout the years. The former Miami Hurricanes pass-catcher comes into the season as Newton's most reliable and trustworthy option. Olsen's targets, catches and yards may very well rise even higher. The additions of rookie Kelvin Be... Read More
Dennis Pitta TE BAL 29 4 Unranked
This 29-year-old is coming off an injury-plagued 2013 season (hip surgery) that limited him to just 20 catches for 169 yards over four games. Provided he doesn't suffer any setbacks, he's a player to target thanks to being a Flacco favorite in the red zone. Also, new OC Gary Kubiak's system loves tight ends and will maximize his talents. Just look at the numbers pu... Read More
Kyle Rudolph Contract Year Player TE MIN 25 3 TE - #6
BOUNCE-BACK CANDIDATE: Fantasy owners would be wise not to sleep on Kyle Rudolph as he should rebound from an injury-plagued season that saw the Notre Dame alum miss eight games due to a broken left foot. Rudolph had nine touchdowns in 2012 and should become a focal point of the passing game under newly-hired offensive coordinator Norv Turner (who ... Read More
Delanie Walker TE TEN 30 8 TE - #16
Whisenhunt has compared Walker to Antonio Gates. Fantasy owners drool at these types of comparisons. Ranked by FFToolbox as 15th-best TE, he will be a safe draft pick for the position; in all actuality, he may prove much more useful on your fantasy roster. If all goes as planned (and Whisenhunt can get Walker involved in the passing game and working with Jake Lock... Read More
Jason Witten TE DAL 32 11 TE - #8
Jason WItten has been the most consistent, durable fantasy tight end spanning the last decade. At 32 years old, his best years are behind him (as evidenced by his 2013 output being hislowest since 2006). Witten managed to find the end zone eight times, but saw a significant falloff in targets (111, down from a three-year avg. of 132), receptions and yards. Even ... Read More
