If I miss out on Jimmy Graham in 2014 fantasy football drafts, I'm waiting until the very end of my draft to take a tight end. Here are the five tight ends I'm targeting late this season.
In very deep leagues, I love Griffin as a late-round upside play. He stepped in last December and just looked like a better athlete than Garrett Graham. Griffin had 14 catches and 177 yards over the last three games of 2013 and with Bill O'Brien in as the head coach, two-TE sets should be a common sight in Houston.
As a rookie, Eifert was the 28th ranked TE according to Pro Football Focus while Jermaine Gresham was the worst ranked TE in the NFL at 64th. Eifert oozes potential and is pretty much going undrafted. If you miss out on one of the top TE's, snag Eifert in the last round of your draft and hope that Gresham gets cut before the season starts and all of a sudden you've lucked yourself into a very attractive option.
If you miss out on one of the top TE's why not spend the first 13 rounds of your draft taking the best talent available, ignore TE completely and snag a guy in the 15th round who's a season removed from 816 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. Miller had a disappointing 2013, but he was coming off of a torn ACL, MCL and PCL he suffered in Week 16 of 2012. I'll take Miller in the 15th over Kyle Rudolph in the 11th any day.
Green, and not age, is the biggest reason why Antonio Gates is on my do-not-draft list in 2014. Green is a physical freak (6-foot-6, 240 pounds and runs a 4.53-40) and he absolutely shined at times last season. He's learned from one of the best who's ever done it and if the Chargers unleash him he has the potential to be one of the biggest breakout stars this season. There's just too much potential to pass up on Green in round 15.
I like Reed just as much, if not more, than Jordan Cameron, Greg Olsen, Dennis Pitta and Kyle Rudolph, and you can get him at least one if not six rounds later than all of those guys. Reed broke out in week seven last year and looked every bit the real deal until a concussion ended his season in Week 11. Reed was a target monster from Weeks 7 through 10 and he has the potential to be one of the top TE's in 2014.
