Fantasy Football 2011: Top 25 Tight Ends

Updated: 9-6-2011

NFL tight ends confuse me.  Sometimes I think there’s a ton of depth because there are so many plays designed for the position across the board these days.  On the other hand, I think there are only a handful of guys that are be real superstars in this league.

This season is really up in the air with so many moving buttocks. Can someone please explain to me why Jeremy Shockey AND Greg Olsen are both Panthers?

Plus, it’s still unclear whether Aaron Hernandez or Rob Gronkowski will bring more fantasy value in 2011.  While I’m likely not instilling you with much confidence in these rankings, I will tell you I’m a fantasy champ more times than I’m not.  So take these rankings any way you so choose.

1. Antonio Gates, Chargers

2. Jason Witten, Cowboys

3. Dallas Clark, Colts

4. Jermichael Finley, Packers

5. Marcedes Lewis, Jaguars

6. Vernon Davis, 49ers
