1. Antonio Gates Chargers: Is this even a contest? Gates is by far and away the best tight end in fantasy football. Expect more of the same this year as Philip Rivers continues to imrpove. Expect around 1000 yards and 10 touchdowns.
2. Kellen Winslow Browns: Winslow had a great season last year recording over 80 catches. If he stays healthy he should be a great fantasy play no matter who is throwing him the ball. Expect around 900 yards and 8 touchdowns.
3. Jeremy Shockey Giants: Shockey is a big physical player who isn’t afraid to go over the middle to make a huge catch. If Eli Manning improves he should have a great year.
Expect around 800 yards and 7 touchdowns.
4. Todd Heap Ravens: Heap is one of the most consistent tight ends in fantasy football always getting 60 plus catches along with 7 touchdowns. With an improved running game expect around 700 yards and 6 touchdowns.
5. Alge Crumpler Falcons: Michael Vick’s only reliable receiver is also very consistent as he benifits from checkdown plays from Vick along with 15 yard catches. Expect the same this year around 800 yards and 5 touchdowns.
6. Tony Gonzalez Chiefs: If he didn’t have a first time starting quarterback in Brodie Croyle, Gonzalez would be much higher on the list as he is the Cheifs best receiver. Expect around 800 yards and 6 touchdowns if Croyle establishes himself as starting quarterback.
7. Ben Watson Patriots: Watson had a solid season last year but his only problem is how well Tom Brady distributes the ball. If he gets looks in the redzone he will be a great pick. Expect around 650 yards and 5 touchdowns.
8. Vernon Davis 49ers: Davis is a physical freak who’s rookie season got cut short by injury. If he stays healthy and Alex Smith improves he should have a great year. Expect around 600 yards and 6 touchdowns.
9. Chris Cooley Redskins: Cooley had a good season last year but Jason Campell didn’t have much game experience that has changed and expect more of the same from Cooley. Expect around 700 yards and 4 touchdowns.
10. Jason Witten Cowboys: Other then the decline in touchdowns, Witten didn’t have that bad a season. Now with a full season under Tony Romo’s belt expect Witten’s to have a better season. Expect around 600 yards and 4 touchdowns.
