Fantasy Football 2014 rankings and stat projections: Tight ends

Fantasy Football 2014 rankings and stat projections: Tight ends Photo:

In fantasy football, the tight end position is no longer a matter of five great ones and then a mess of useless players. Sure, Jimmy Graham has separated himself from the pack, finding himself in the first round of most drafts. But there are about 10 excellent options at the position now, and then the group of 10 or so behind them are all very promising.

POSITION PRIMERS: QB | RB | WR | TE | K | DST

The lesson here: You can either load up early on a stud, pick an average fantasy tight end with a middle pick, or wait and roll the dice on one or two from the promising group.

Find all our tight end fantasy rankings -- as well as stat projections -- below. The rankings are based on standard-scoring leagues, awarding one point for 10 rushing and receiving yards, and six points for rushing and receiving touchdowns.
