Most people would agree that the TE position is one you generally wait on in drafts. There are exceptions, of course, but you can certainly make do with these guys on your roster. Here are the top five fantasy sleepers at TE.
Toilolo only posted 19 yards on two receptions this preseason, but his ceiling is just too high to not put him on this list. He's going undrafted after being in the shadows of Tony Gonzalez last season, but was a rookie who scored twice. Standing at 6-foot-8, he's a mismatch problem that Matt Ryan should exploit.
Though four receptions and 54 yards is by no means "great" this preseason, the 6-foot-5 rookie stood above fellow Buccaneers TE Tim Wright. I love Jenkins' raw potential as a TE, but the Bucs' offense is a little crowded. He'll either distract defenses or go unnoticed due to a need to cover the WRs. But he's going undrafted, so you're not risking too much with him.
Miller's only two seasons removed from a Pro Bowl appearance and he's only being drafted in the 15th round. Sure, age is catching up with him, but he's still Ben Roethlisberger's safety-blanket. He's the poor man's Jason Witten, if you will -- but is especially effective in PPR leagues.
Though he's the backup TE on the depth chart, he's more acting more as the starter. If he continues to stay at that position, he'll continue to exploit mismatches as he showed this preseason -- posting 110 yards and a score on eight receptions. He's an especially good pick in the latter half of drafts.
Get to know this face, he'll be popping up everywhere this season. The Kansas City Chiefs' backup TE went on a rampage this preseason, almost posting 200 yards with a score on 11 receptions. He led the Chiefs in yards and receptions in three games, and is quickly rising in ADP. I'd advise taking him in the 15th round just in case some other savvy owner drafts him in the last round before you can.
