The tight end position has become increasingly deep in recent fantasy football seasons, but there are still quality sleepers out there. To help you find some of these underrated options, here are five tight end sleepers that have emerged in Week 2 of the preseason.
Celek has been the forgotten man in Philly this offseason, as most are pegging Zach Ertz to run away with the job. However, Celek still hauled in six touchdowns last year and he has a very high football IQ. The veteran continues to show up everyday in practice and will be hard to keep off the field on Sunday this fall.
Week 2 Stats: 2 Rec, 3 TGTS, 45 YDS, 0 TDs
After missing several weeks of camp with a groin injury, Chandler had an impressive showing in Week 2 of the preseason. He hauled in four balls for 40 yards and was targeted six total times. QB E.J. Manuel locked on to Chandler often last season and the duo should grow even more in 2014. Chandler won’t be worth drafting in all formats, but he will certainly be a sleeper in leagues with 10-plus owners.
Week 2 Stats: 4 REC, 6 TGTS, 40 YDS, 0 TDs
There has been a ton of attention on the position battle over the starting TE spot in Green Bay, but Quarless had a sensation outing in Week 2 of the preseason. He surprisingly led the team in receptions (4) and receiving yards in the game. If there was any doubt as to who the starting tight end is in GB this year, Quarless appears to be the frontrunner for the job.
Week 2 Stats: 4 REC, 5 TGTS, 58 YDS, 0 TDs
Reed hauled in 499 yards and three TDs in nine games in 2013, but the tight end dealt with concussion issues for the majority of the season. Fortunately, Reed looked healthy in the team’s Week 2 matchup. Reed will be a great sleeper TE to look for this season and he can be found well after the top-five options come off the board.
Week 2 Stats: 2 REC, 2 TGTS, 20 YDS, 0 TDs
It is no secret that Norv Turner loves to utilize the TE position in the passing game, which should instantly bolster the fantasy value of Rudolph. He been all over the field this preseason and posted a jaw-dropping numbers in Week 2. Consider the Notre Dame product a steal anywhere after the fifth round this summer.
Week 2 Stats: 4 REC, 5 TGTS, 89 YDS, 1 TD
