Top 20 Fantasy Rankings – Tight Ends

Fantasy time!! Last year turned out to be a good one for Tight Ends and this year could be very similar. If you missed out on the Top Tier of wide receivers, you could do yourself a favor by drafting one of the top Tight Ends to compensate.

Take a look at the 2010 edition of my Fantasy Tight End rankings and let me know if I’m on to something or if I’m full of crap!

Bye weeks are listed in brackets after the players name and team.

1. Vernon Davis SFO (9) – Davis scored a mind boggling 13 touchdowns last season establishing himself as one of the most dangerous receiving weapons in the NFL. He’s #1 based on potential. He’s skilled, athletic and finally mature enough to be called a super star.

2. Antonio Gates SDC (10) – Gates is a lock for 1000 yards receiving and 8 touchdowns. With Vincent Jackson out for the first few games of the season, Gates could come out of the gate extremely strong.

3. Dallas Clark IND (7) – As big a part of the offense as anyone, Clark has developed an amazing rapport with his future Hall of Fame quarterback. He will once again come close to 1000 yards receiving and score his customary 9-10 touchdowns.

4. Brent Celek PHI (8) – Kevin Kolb loves this guy and vice versa. In both Kolb starts last year, Celek had 8 catches, 104 yards and a score. 1000 yards and 8 touchdowns is not a stretch.

5. Tony Gonzalez ATL (8) – Gonzalez had one of his worst statistical seasons in a long time last year but it still wasn’t that bad. He appears to have lost a step but 80-90 catches and 6-8 touchdowns is certainly attainable.

6. Jason Witten DAL (4) – Only scored two touchdowns last season largely because of the emergence of other weapons on the team. He’s more of a possession Tight End now who should still get his yards and his catches but maybe not a whole lot of touchdowns.

7. Jermichael Finley GBP (10) – Finley is this year’s sleeper Tight End and with good reason. He looked brilliant at times last season but was slowed by injury. He should be good for 800 or so yards and 6-8 touchdowns.

8. Zach Miller OAK (10) – Zach Miller was fairly successful with JaMarcus Russell. The Raiders have a serious lack of receiving threats, leaving Miller as the only reliable guy. Jason Campbell showed with Chris Cooley that he loves his Tight Ends! LOL!

9. Kellen Winslow TBB (4) – Winslow is the only real receiving threat on the Buccaneers and Josh Freeman knows this. Winslow is going to have to be a big part of the offense or the Bucs will have miserable season.

10. Visanthe Shiancoe MIN (4) – Shiancoe has 11 touchdowns last year – 11! We all know that Brett Favre loves to use the Tight End (Bubba Franks) and that if he returns; Shank will have another good year.

11. Owen Daniels HOU (7) – Daniels would be higher in the rankings if he didn’t tear up his knee last season. Although Daniels doesn’t score a ton, he is that possession receiver that every elite team has. He may not be Top Tier, but he is solid.

12. Chris Cooley WAS (9) – There’s good and bad with Cooley. The good is that he has Donovan McNabb throwing him the ball and look what McNabb did for Brent Celek. Also Kyle Shanahan is in at offensive coordinator and he made Owen Daniels that player he is. The bad is the fact that he’s coming off an injury and that Fred Lewis emerged during Cooley’s absence.

13. John Carlson SEA (5) – Carlson was used to block mostly last season but with Chris Baker on the scene, he will get more opportunities to catch the ball. He’s a 3rd tier tight End at best.

14. Heath Miller PIT (5) – Every season, Miller is ranked in the 12-16 range and every year he ends up with Top 10 numbers. He had at least five catches in ten games last season and could start for your team.

15. Greg Olsen CHI (8) – Olsen’s potential went out the window with the arrival of Mike Martz as offensive coordinator. Martz is murder on Tight End stats and this year should be no different.

16. Dustin Keller NYJ (7) – Has averaged about 530 yards and 2.5 touchdowns in his two seasons – expect about the same. The upside is the fact that he was heavily used during the Jets magical playoff run last season.

17. Jeremy Shockey NOS (10) – Has not been an impact player in New Orleans – just 100 catches, 2 touchdowns and 1000 yards combined over two seasons.

18. Bo Scaife TEN (9) – He will get 40-50 catches 500 yards and 2-4 scores – not too much to get excited about!

19. Kevin Boss NYG (8) – Boss is a fantasy backup who’s rarely used in the Giants’ offense. Don’t expect a whole lot.

20. Todd Heap BAL (8) – Heap, when healthy and younger was a threat. Now older, worn down and threatened by some rookies on the team, Heap doesn’t hold a lot of value.

Ben Burns was a disappointing 2-3 Sunday, 0-1 with his NBA. He responds like a champ Monday and watch. His first (of two) NBA plays is a total and its a BEAUTY. Be there!
