Tight End Dynasty Rankings June 9, 2013  |  Jeff


Welcome to The Fake Football’s 2013 Dynasty Rankings. We have already released quarterback, running back, and wide receiver rankings and will now touch on the world of tight ends.

The tight end position is clearly led by the Gronk and Graham duo, but there are plenty of other young options worth building around, in addition to the great Jason Witten. With a few solid rookie tight ends coming into the league via the NFL Draft, the tight end spot could end up being very deep with young talent. In a start-up draft, I would snag any member of the top three at a decent price but if not, I would wait and look for a guy like Cook a bit later or pair a Gates/Pettigrew type with one of the younger upside players.

The biggest news impacting this position is the health status of the man called “Gronk.” After battling infection issues with his arm injury, the Patriots tight end now is having back issues. For the moment, I have dropped Gronk below Graham but let’s wait and see how the big fella performs this summer before putting him on a slip-n-slide down the rankings.   Many updates to come!

Feel free to discuss/debate any rankings in the comments section below.

THAT JUST HAPPENED: RUNNING BACKS, PART I Don’t call it a comeback, they’ve been here for years. Sure, in 2015 running backs made tears rain down like a monsoon, but in 2016 the position reclaimed its fantasy dominance.  Rocking its peers and putting suckas in fear. That’s the narrative, anyway.  No doubt David ...

That Just Happened: Quarterbacks, Part II

  In Part I, I took a look at the quarterback position from a macro level. Now it’s time to dig into the details. To say Aaron Rodgers was the QB1 in 2016, or that Dak Prescott was QB6, isn’t very informative. Rodgers’s ranking might undersell how insanely valuable he was, ...
