Gronkowski will always be the No. 1 tight end when healthy, but I could see Eric Berry slowing him down some. If the Patriots want to force the issue, they could likely give Gronk a big game, but Cooks and Hogan are nice options for Brady and will likely have easier coverage to exploit.
2. Delanie Walker, TE, Titans. Bye: 13.
Walker may be getting up there in age, but he gets a great matchup against Oakland's poor tight end defense in a game with the highest over/under of the weekend.
3. Greg Olsen, TE, Panthers. Bye: 7.
The 49ers don't have the personnel to stop many offenses, and Olsen is still the most trusted receiver on the team.
4. Kyle Rudolph, TE, Vikings. Bye: 6.
Rudolph is solid week in and week out, and has a good ceiling against the Saints' pass defense.
5. Jordan Reed, TE, Redskins. Bye: 9.
Reed is nearly unstoppable when clicking on all cylinders, but did have trouble against Philadelphia last season.
6. Tyler Eifert, TE, Bengals. Bye: 9.
Eifert scores touchdowns when healthy, so the odds are in his favor to do just that.
7. Zach Ertz, TE, Eagles. Bye: 4.
Ertz should be a top target for Wentz with Jordan Matthews out of the picture. Add in Josh Norman on Alshon Jeffery, and Ertz could end up as the No. 1 target this week.
8. Travis Kelce, TE, Chiefs. Bye: 5.
Kelce will likely be the leading fantasy point accumulater for Kansas City this week, but I don't expect that he will go off.
9. Jimmy Graham, TE, Seahawks. Bye: 5.
Graham was up and down last season and didn't see the targets we'd like for fantasy, but it appears he is healthier now and could end up seeing more targets.
10. Jason Witten, TE, Cowboys. Bye: 7.
Witten owns the Giants, especially on opening day.
11. Charles Clay, TE, Bills. Bye: 10.
Clay's knees are a problem, but Week 1 against the Jets' weak secondary should be the best spot for him all season.
12. Coby Fleener, TE, Saints. Bye: 5.
The last time Willie Snead missed a game, Fleener went off, but this Minnesota defense is no slouch.
