2010 Fantasy Football Rankings: Tight Ends 21-40



These 2010 Fantasy Football Tight Ends Rankings will be updated often throughout the summer, so make sure you check back from time to time. Also, be sure to check out my other 2010 Fantasy Football articles, which will include sleepers, busts, tons of 2010 Fantasy Football mock drafts and other material.


2010 Fantasy Football Rankings - Tight Ends (Aug. 31):
Top 10 | 11-20 | 21-40


  1. Evan Moore, TE, Browns. Bye: 8.
    AUG. 17 UPDATE: If you were reading this site last year, you know that I suggested to keep an eye out on Evan Moore. Moore converted on both of his targets on the opening drive at Green Bay, notching 24 yards. Moore is an athletic tight end who could have a solid 2010 campaign. I wouldn't draft him, but Moore could be worth a look as a bye-week filler if he continues to play well.

    PREVIOUS UPDATE: Evan Moore caught my attention when he caught six balls for 80 yards in a December contest against San Diego. Moore is physically gifted, but his value will remain minimized as long as the Browns keep trotting out bums at the quarterback position.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 44 catches. 575 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 75.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 119.

  2. Aaron Hernandez, TE, Patriots. Bye: 5.
    AUG. 20 UPDATE: Aaron Hernandez saw two targets from Tom Brady in the second preseason game (three from Brian Hoyer), including a touchdown in the second quarter. Hernandez looks great; he could be a big part of New England's offense this season. I wouldn't draft a rookie tight end, but Hernandez's progress is worth monitoring if you want to replace your struggling/injured tight end.

    JUNE 23 UPDATE: Aaron Hernandez is practicing ahead of Rob Gronkowski in minicamps. Hernandez is a versatile talent, but as a rookie, he's not worth a spot on your fantasy roster; at least not right away. He's just someone to keep an eye on.

    PREVIOUS UPDATE: Aaron Hernandez isn't worth drafting because he's just a rookie tight end, but it'll be interesting to see how the Patriots use him. He'll be lining up all over the field.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 40 catches. 475 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 71.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 111.

  3. Rob Gronkowski, TE, Patriots. Bye: 5.
    Rob Gronkowski was awesome against the Rams, catching three balls for 66 yards and two touchdowns. On his first score, a St. Louis defender grabbed Gronkowski by the ankle at the 7-yard line. Gronkowski impressively dragged the helpless defender four yards on one leg and leaped toward the end zone for the score. He's worth monitoring as a waiver-wire addition.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 35 catches. 475 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 71.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 106.

  4. Fred Davis, TE, Redskins. Bye: 9.
    If Fred Davis were on another team, he'd probably be a TE1 this season. Replacing an injured Chris Cooley in the middle of the year, Davis notched 48 receptions for 509 yards and six scores.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 40 catches. 450 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 69.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 109.



  5. Michael Hoomanawanui, TE, Rams. Bye: 9.
    In a few years, NFL.com might be airing commercials of a fantasy player saying, "Michael Hoomanawanui. Championship!" Hoomanawanui really impressed at New England, catching four balls for 53 yards and two touchdowns. His most impressive grab was a one-handed reception at the end of the first quarter. It wouldn't be a surprise if Hommanawanui led all Rams players not named Steven Jackson in catches this year, as he appeared to be Sam Bradford's favorite target.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 40 catches. 490 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 67.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 107.

  6. Shawn Nelson, TE, Bills. Bye: 6.
    Boston Globe reporter Albert Breer has written that the Bills have "big plans" for Shawn Nelson. Nelson's a talented player in a tight end-friendly offense, and aside from Lee Evans, Buffalo lacks a playmaker in its receiving corps. Nelson could emerge as Trent Edwards/Ryan Fitzpatrick's No. 2 target.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 45 catches. 425 yards. 4 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 66.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 111.

  7. Bo Scaife, TE, Titans. Bye: 9.
    Vince Young loves Bo Scaife. In Young's 10 starts last year, Scaife caught at least four passes on six occasions. Unfortunately, he scored only one touchdown.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 53 catches. 525 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 64.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 117.

  8. Jeremy Shockey, TE, Saints. Bye: 10.
    Amazingly, Jeremy Shockey has never played a full 16-game season in his career. He's always in and out of the lineup with minor injuries, as he has missed nine contests the past three years. As for 2010, Shockey should once again approach 50 receptions, but don't count on him getting many touchdowns; in two years with the Saints, he has only scored thrice (and two of those touchdowns came against the Lions in the 2009 opener).

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 45 catches. 510 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 63.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 108.





  9. Tony Moeaki, TE, Chiefs. Bye: 4.
    Tony Moeaki is a really talented tight end who was just drafted in the third round. If he can stay healthy, he could become a big part of Kansas City's offense. But that's exactly the problem - he was extremely injury-prone at Iowa throughout his collegiate career.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 38 catches. 450 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 63.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 101.

  10. Zach Miller, TE, Jaguars. Bye: 9.
    Let me get this straight: There are two Adrian Peterson running backs, two Steve Smith receivers, and now two Zach Miller tight ends? Why are they making my life so difficult?

    Marcedes Lewis will be the projected starting Jaguars tight end by most publications. Lewis could definitely win the job, but if he does, he offers no upside. Miller does. Miller is highly athletic, and in the final game of the 2009 season, he caught eight balls for 69 yards and two scores.

    I wouldn't draft Miller because he might not even be the starter. But I'll definitely keep an eye on him. If he manages to pass Lewis on the depth chart, make sure to pick him up if you need a tight end.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 40 catches. 475 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 59.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 99.

  11. Marquez Branson, TE, Broncos. Bye: 9.
    Daniel Graham's an outstanding blocker, but he's worthless in fantasy football. Dick Quinn is also a block-first tight end. That leaves Marquez Branson, a second-year player out of Central Arkansas, as Denver's pass-catching tight end.

    "Yoy didn't see him last year, but we have very high expectations," McDaniels said of Branson. Well, if McDaniels likes Branson, then Branson must be a damn good player.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 35 catches. 425 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 54.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 89.



  12. Dante Roasario, TE, Panthers. Bye: 6.
    The Panthers just don't like to use tight ends in their offense.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 33 catches. 400 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 52.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 85.

  13. Anthony Fasano, TE, Dolphins. Bye: 5.
    I guess Anthony Fasano's seven touchdowns in 2008 were a fluke. Fasano scored just twice last season. He's a non-factor.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 30 catches. 350 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 47.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 77.

  14. Dennis Pitta, TE, Ravens. Bye: 8.
    The Ravens have three tight ends who figure to see a ton of playing time. My favorite to lead the team in receiving yardage at the position is Dennis Pitta. He played in a pro-style offense at BYU and is a better receiver than Ed Dickson.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 28 catches. 310 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 43.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 71.

  15. Brandon Pettigrew, TE, Lions. Bye: 7.
    Two problems with Brandon Pettigrew: He tore his ACL on Thanksgiving, so he won't be 100 percent if he plays, and he'll now have to share targets with Tony Scheffler. Avoid.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 26 catches. 300 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 42.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 68.

  16. Ed Dickson, TE, Ravens. Bye: 8.
    AUG. 13 UPDATE: An impressive receiver for the Ravens in the preseason opener was actually tight end Ed Dickson, who grabbed a pair of balls (not that there's anything wrong with that) for 26 yards with the second team. Dickson was also targeted deep on an errant pass from Marc Bulger. I'm not suggesting you should draft Dickson or anything, but he's worth keeping an eye on as a possible waiver-wire pick-up.

    PREVIOUS UPDATE: Ed Dickson is a phenomenal blocker, and with Dennis Pitta and Todd Heap on the roster, Dickson may not see many targets. This is a situation I'll closely be monitoring during the preseason, and as I do every year, I'll keep you closely apprised with everything I observe.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 24 catches. 300 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 42.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 66.

  17. Marcedes Lewis, TE, Jaguars. Bye: 9.
    Marcedes Lewis has great physical talent, but has never been able to live up to it. Call it a hunch, but I think this is the year he finally loses his job.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 25 catches. 330 yards. 0 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 33.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 58.

  18. David Thomas, TE, Saints. Bye: 10.
    Jeremy Shockey will get hurt this year, and when that happens, make sure you pick up David Thomas. However, he's not draftable unless Shockey suffers an injury in the preseason.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 25 catches. 260 yards. 1 total TD.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 32.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 57.
