It’s pretty amazing how quickly the sport of fantasy football can evolve. (Yes, I called it a sport. And yes, I am entirely aware of how nerdy that sounds…) Just a few years ago, most people considered tight ends unimportant – an afterthought. A position that you addressed just before defense and a kicker. Last year though, the NFL saw a major emergence at the tight end position. Hybrid players who had the size and the speed to really stretch the field and become very dangerous in the end zone. Of course, this increased role translated well for fantasy owners who were fortunate enough to have some of these special players on their roster. Now, a lot of the talk headed into this season of fantasy football is centered around the importance of tight ends and how well guys, like Rob Gornkowski, Jimmy Graham and Aaron Hernandez, who were outstanding last year, will do this year.

So this week for our fantasy football rankings and debate, we will look at the tight end position and list, who we believe to be, the top 10. If you missed, make sure to check out our last Coin Toss where we ranked fantasy D/ST.
