It wasn’t long ago that the Tight End position was something that you regarded about as highly as a Kicker on your fantasy football teams. But with the evolution of football, the relevance and need for a top Tight End has grown. The real explosion came in 2011 when Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham combined for 2,637 yards and 28 touchdowns both breaking Kellen Winslow Sr’s record set in 1980. In 2012 I was shocked to see these two being selected in the 1st and 2nd rounds and although it is up for debate looked to be a very interesting and possibly successful strategy.  While the majority of Tight Ends will never be to this caliber with the proper mix of an explosive offense such as New England or New Orleans, we do have to keep a close eye on some very impressive rookies that could make a huge impact for teams looking for that next dynamic playmaker at the Tight End position, making them valuable to your fantasy teams.  So with that, let’s take a look at some targets at the position ...
