It's time for Jimmy Graham to create a tier of one at the tight end position. He'll begin his domination of linebackers and safeties with seven catches, 99 yards and a score this week
Witten had a monster 2012, and he'll pick right up where he left off. He remains one of the best tight ends in the game.
Olsen has developed a great relationship with Cam Newton, one that could have him among the elite tight ends this year. He'll get that all started on Sunday.
Cook has all the tools of the next generation tight end, though he couldn't really put it together in Tennessee last year. That changes this year, and it all starts against the Cardinals this week.
Though he fell off the map when Colin Kaepernick took over as the starter, Davis will line up as a receiver a lot this year, a move that definitely elevates his ceiling. The bottom line is he'll need to be a weapon for the Niners to keep pace with the Seahawks.
Finley's strong preseason has him back int he good graces of many fantasy owners. Given his skill set and environment, there's no reason he shouldn't be a beast in fantasy leagues.
Daniels isn't going to be the league's top tight end this year. He just as safely won't be outside the top seven. Start him with confidence every week.
With Rob Gronkowski out, Sudfeld will have a chance to carve out a serious role for himself in the New England offense. He'll get that effort off to a nice start this week
Rudolph will suffer from the erratic play of Minnesota's quarterbacks this season. On another team, he could be a top-five TE.
Pettigrew's draft stock fell after a pedestrian 2012, but he remains a capable receiver in a pass-happy offense. He may be in for a bounce-back year.
One game, one touchdown. Not a bad way to start your career Mr. Eifert. He'll show this week why he can be a great weapon for Andy Dalton in the red zone.
Cameron emerged as a sleeper tight end this preseason, and could finish inside the top 10 at the position. It's a risky proposition to put your faith in Cleveland's passing game, though.
After all the talk of his lack of targets in the preseason, Bennett comes up big for the Bears on Sunday, catching five balls for 61 yards. He's a nice option this week
The ageless tight end keeps on ticking, though he may have fewer opportunities this year after the addition of Steven Jackson. It'll be a tepid start to the 2013 season for Gonzalez.
Celek seemed to play better with Nick Foles than he did with Vick, but he and Vick looked comfortable with one another this preseason. He could develop into a fantasy starter this year.
It was supposed to be Dennis Pitta in this spot, but his season-ending hip injury deprived Joe Flacco of one of his favorite targets. Dickson may be a bye-week replacement, but you don't want anything to do with him this week.
It's tempting to think of Davis as a starter, but he can't be trusted quite yet. Let's see what kind of start he gets off to before we consider him an option.
Walker moved from San Francisco to Tennessee in the offseason, but his first game with the Titans will not be one worth remembering.
Fleener didn't have the success many expected of him last year, and he's behind Dwayne Allen on the depth chart when both are healthy. He'll have a chance to make some noise if Allen doesn't hold up.
Chandler developed into a decent fantasy backup last year, but you don't need to deal with backups Week 1. Stay away.
There's no reason for fantasy owners to consider Spaeth in any capacity. He's merely keeping the seat warm for Heath Miller.
Gates held on to his fantasy value last year, but he's clearly getting to the end of the line. I stayed away from him all draft season, and I expect him to be outside the top 12 at the position.
Eli Manning has always made good use of his tight ends, and chances are that won't change with Myers. Over the course of the entire season, he'll prove to be a weekly starter, but he won't pay off this week.
Lewis simply can't be trusted as a fantasy starter. Not in this offense and not with so many other options at the position.
We'll have to wait to see how this passing offense develops before we know whether or not Miller is a fantasy option. For now, he's on the outside looking in.
Scheffler snuck in a few useful fantasy performances last year, but those were largely when Brandon Pettigrew was injured. There's no reason to own him.
The Arizona passing offense will be much improved this year, but sometimes a rising tide doesn't lift all ships. Stay away from Housler.
The Bengals will run a lot of two tight-end sets this year, employing some of the principles we've seen work so well for the Patriots. Unfortunately for his owners, it won't do much for Gresham this week.
Fasano had some decent days in Miami, but until we see a little something out of him in Kansas City he really doesn't belong on the fantasy radar.
Stocker is not a fantasy option this week and likely won't be all season long.
Thomas will emerge as Manning's go-to tight end this week, but that is always subject to change. Either way, it's the receivers who dominate this offense.
With the depth at the tight end position, Clay isn't a guy who should be on anyone's radar.
Cumberland has some speed, but this passing game is a train wreck and puts a very low ceiling on anyone involved with it. He's not a fantasy-relevant player.
