    As I've stated many times, the position is as deep as it has ever been. When a guy like is ranked number 12, there is a lot of quality at the top end.

    I really like the prospects of Jason Witten returning to TE1 form this year, but the guys in front of him have just as much upside, or more.

    Don't be worried about the to having an effect on Witten. showed he will spread the ball around to his wide receivers, tight ends, and running backs.

    of the is the creme of the crop. The ' and Carolina's Greg Olsen aren't far behind in the second tier, but it all starts with Rob Gronkowski.

    The Risers

    second year tight end Jesse James is a relatively unknown player. James was drafted in the fifth round of the 2015 by the Steelers. Ladarius Green isn't healthy and is now on the physically unable to perform list (PUP) for six weeks. The Steelers are prepared to go with James as their starting tight end.

    In the week three game, James recorded 4 catches for 25 yards and a touchdown. He has the size and the trust of the . In that high volume , Jesse James has a chance to make an impact.

    The Fallers

    The have had a camp battle going on all summer between Will Tye and Larry Donnell. Neither has stood out, which in standard leagues leaves neither player deserving of a roster spot.

    The same could be said for the ' tight end group. Benjamin Watson is out for the year with a torn Achilles. have limited Maxx Williams and Crockett Gillmore throughout , so neither one has been able to establish themselves.
