Thanks to the recent influx of big, athletic, pass-catching tight ends, the position is deeper than ever in fantasy. There are plenty of high-potential sleepers if you miss out on the top guys.

1. Jimmy Graham NO

982 receiving yards, 9 TDs, 152 points.

The undisputed top TE this season thanks to Gronkowski’s injury question marks.

2. Tony Gonzalez ATL

930 receiving yards, 8 TDs, 141 points.

Decided against retirement and should put on a top-five performance.

3. Jason Witten DAL

1039 receiving yards, 3 TDs, 121 points.

Hasn’t missed a game since 2003 and has averaged more than 1,000 yards per season over past six.

4. Vernon Davis SF

548 receiving yards, 5 TDs, 84 points.

He’ll be getting work as a WR and lots of targets. The downside: Produced very little with Kaepernick under centre.
