Finally our “Too Soon” fantasy football draft preview moves into the moneymakers. Well, moneymakers if you happen to draft the top two. That’s right, we move on from late round starters of kickers and defenses to give you the rankings of a position you may actually care about: tight ends.

You at least care about tight ends more than kickers and defenses. They’re usually a position gamble and almost never used in a flex spot because, really, who knows if they’re going to get the ball at all unless you reach too early in your draft and pick up a top prospect? Even then, you’re not sure if your top-of-the-line tight end is going to score twenty points, or just two.

We will get more in depth with all positions as the NFL season draws closer but, for now, here are my tight end rankings list based on:

a) Skillset

b) Strength of Schedule

c) Team Offensive Strengths and Weaknesses

And yes, I know I went totally overboard in the amount of tight ends I ranked.

Have questions about tight end rankings? Or just want to tell me how ridiculous my rankings are? Go ahead and comment, or email me at
