In 2013, the tight end position saw the Miami Dolphins Charles Clay and Washington Redskins Jordan Reed emerge.  This season, fantasy football player will be targeting them in their drafts, but which players average draft position makes them the smarter, more valuable pick?#182567174 / gettyimages.comClay was not supposed to be Miami's top option at the TE position, but free agent signing Dustin Keller suffered a season ending injury during the preseason.  Clay ended up seeing the 3rd most targets (103) from QB Ryan Tannehill, behind Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline.  That can be expected again in 2014, as well as leading the Dolphins in receiving TDs for a second consecutive season.  He even added a rushing TD, which pushed him above Greg Olsen in total fantasy points.  The only TEs with more points were Jimmy Graham, Vernon Davis, Julius Thomas, Tony Gonzalez, Jordan Cameron and Jason Witten.  He even outscored WRs Torrey Smith, Marques Colston, Michael Floyd and his own teammate Wallace!#186716735 / gettyimages.comReed played just 9 games for the Redskins in 2013, but managed to catch 45 of his 59 targets for 499 yards and 3 scores.  Reed was effective on a Redskins offense without DeSean Jackson.  With DJax and Pierre Garcon getting a lot of attention from the defense, as well as linebackers having to account for Alfred Morris and spying Robert Griffin III, Reed could see a lot of open field down the middle.  Check out our Washington Redskins Fantasy Football Outlook.Average Draft PositionCharles ClayFFC15th TE149th overallDrafted before Eli ManningDrafted after Matt PraterYahoo13th TE158th overallDrafted before Sebastian JanikowskiDrafted after Miami Dolphins DefenseESPN12th TE137th overallDrafted after Bradnin CooksDrafted before Eli ManningNFL12th TE131st OverallDrafted after Ben RoethlisbergerDrafted before Anquan BoldinJordan ReedFFC7th overall TE77th overallDrafted before Maurice Jones-DrewDrafted after Lamar MillerYahoo11th TE111th overallDrafted before Dwayne BoweDrafted after Brandin CooksESPN9th TE107th overallDrafted after Khiry RobinsonDrafted before Dwayne BoweNFL9th TE69th OverallDrafted after Kansas City Chiefs DefenseDrafted before Stephen GostkowskiAll the experts will rank Reed higher than Clay, and Fantasy Pros Who Should I Draft? machine gives Reed a 90% victory over Clay.Based on ADP - Who Would You Rather Have?
