If you have been playing fantasy football for a few years, you know there are a couple guys who are premium players. They put up WR like points. Then there is the rest. Sometimes, you can find gems like Julius Thomas or a half season champ like Martellus Bennett. Katy Perry played the Super Bowl, so she can certainly close out my 2015 rankings. Good luck people!
1. Rob Gronkowski, Patriots- I’ll go with the monster who has the proven QB and the proven chemistry. This guy could probably put up 30 TDs. I would love to see that.
2. Jimmy Graham, Seahawks- I’m a little down on Graham after watching Seattle play San Diego. Wilson had a hard time connecting with the big man. Still, can’t drop him any further than 2.
3. Greg Olsen, Panthers- Slowly but surely, Olsen climbs up the TE rankings. He is no doubt Cam Newton’s #1 target, especially after Benjamin went down.
4. Martellus Bennett, Bears- Very solid pass catching tight end. Big target, decent speed, tough to tackle. Seems to be more of a first half player though.
5. Jordan Cameron, Dolphins- Cameron is an interesting player. Had a great rookie year, then kind of dropped off the radar. Mostly due to the circus that is the Cleveland Browns and their lack of QB play. Ryan Tannehill has turned himself into a pro QB, so the sky is the limit for his potential. He could be the leading fantasy TE when all is said and done.
6. Travis Kelce, Chiefs- Kelce is kind of a sneaky player. He might get a few more looks now that Jeremy Maclin give them a legit target down field.
7. Jason Witten, Cowboys- Not the same player he was 3-4 years ago, but a solid target for Romo.
8. Zach Ertz, Eagles- Without Maclin and LeSean McCoy, Ertz might become more of a factor to catch passes from Bradford. The only problem is, in that offense you never know who is going to get the targets.
9. Dwayne Allen, Colts- Didn’t have the yardage as fellow TE Coby Fleener but had the same amount of TDs, and was probably the more consistent player. With adding Andre Johnson, Allen’s looks could disappear a little. Especially in the Red Zone.
10. Kyle Rudolph, Vikings- Rudolph has been the “dark horse” or “sleeper” for a few years. Mostly due to poor QB play. Perhaps he will have a more consistent season in year two of Teddy Bridgewater’s development.
11. Josh Hill, Saints- In a 10-team league this is a super-sleeper. In a 12-team league this is one of your starting tight ends! Hill is probably the sexier of the two TEs that will take over for the traded Jimmy Graham.
12. Jordan Reed, Redskins- With Kirk Cousins taking over at QB, this might mean more consistent production for WRs and TEs. Reed has been a pretty good player when healthy.
