The tight end position is looking like it could be one of the most difficult to draft in fantasy football this season. Basically, you have New Orleans Saints stud Jimmy Graham at the top of the list. Underneath Graham, you have everyone else.
Rob Gronkowski is as much of a beast as Graham when healthy, but the timetable for his return remains unclear. He is worth drafting in the early rounds because of how dominant he will be when he plays, but the multiple surgeries he had over the offseason obviously make him a risk. Tony Gonzalez is also as close to a sure thing as you can get, though he won’t make the type of impact Graham or a healthy Gronk should.
But there are several other intriguing names out there, which is why we wanted to tell you about three of our favorite tight end sleepers: Jermichael Finley, Jared Cook and Zach Sudfeld.
A few years ago, Finley looked like a breakout candidate and a lock to become one of the top fantasy tight ends for years to come. It never worked out that way, and he has become more known for dropping passes than his game-changing ability. However, Finley has gotten past rumors that the Packers are looking to get rid of him and is entering a contract year. Not to mention, Green Bay’s coaches have been praising his work this offseason.
