Time to don my fantasy prediction cap again! Now we will focus on which tight ends will be the best in fantasy football in 2013.
Keep in mind that this list is missing two perennial top 10 tight ends. I am assuming that Atlanta’s Tony Gonzalez, who would have been rated somewhere in the top six coming off another 1,000-yard season, will likely retire.
Another veteran that would have qualified is Pittsburgh’s Heath Miller, who finds the end zone more than most players at the position. But Miller suffered a torn ACL at the end of the 2012 season and is very questionable for the start of the 2013 season.
But even without those two top tight ends being included, this top 10 has as much star power as any Quentin Tarantino flick. The tight end position is as deep and talented as it has ever been.
It used to be almost impossible for fantasy owners to find tight ends who could have 800 yards and/or six touchdowns. Now thanks to the prevalence of higher-quality quarterbacks and high-powered offenses, 1,000-yard and 10-TD tight ends are more available than ever!
Here are my predictions for the top 10 fantasy tight ends for 2013!
