Fantasy NFL
Tight End Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
 
Daniel Fells, TE, NYG7/23/2014 4:14:00 PM
Description: According to Jordan Raanan of nj.com, Daniel Fells has worked as the Giants first-team tight end in the first two days of training camp.
Insight: Fells is competing with Adrien Robinson and Kellen Davis for the starting job. Fells has 92 catches for 1,086 yards and eight touchdowns in 71 career games. The Giants are going to play a lot of three-receiver sets and are a team that still often uses a fullback, so whoever starts at tight end won't be a fantasy option. Brandon Myers, last year's starter, had 47 catches for 522 yards and four touchdowns.
Rob Gronkowski, TE, NEP7/23/2014 1:23:00 PM
Description: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) has been cleared for training camp and won't be placed on the active/PUP list.
Insight: Gronkowski tore his ACL and MCL against Cleveland in Week 14, but he's made an impressive recovery. Fantasy owners won't have to worry about him being placed on the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first six games of the regular season, because he's not eligible. Gronk has missed 14 games the past two seasons and his third-round ADP makes him a high-risk, high-reward option.
Vernon Davis, TE, SFX7/23/2014 1:18:00 PM
Description: San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis has reported to training camp, according to Matt Maiocco of csnbayarea.com.
Insight: Davis missed OTAs and minicamp because he wants a new contract, but San Francisco doesn't want to give him one and he really doesn't have any leverage. Davis had 52 receptions, 850 yards and 13 touchdowns in 15 games last season and comes with a fifth-round ADP.
Jermichael Finley, TE, GBP7/15/2014 10:55:00 AM
Description: Former Packers tight end Jermichael Finley has yet to find a landing spot in 2014.
Insight: Finley has had trouble finding a new team since undergoing offseason neck surgery. Fantasy owners know he's never lived up to the hype, but he should find a job somewhere this season, though he may have to wait until training camp injuries take their toll.
Jimmy Graham, TE, NOS7/15/2014 10:52:00 AM
Description: The Saints and tight end Jimmy Graham have come to an agreement on a four-year deal.
Insight: His fantasy owners can relax now as the tight end won't have to hold out. He's the highest paid tight end which is right for the best tight end in football. Even at less than 100 percent he caught 86 balls for 1,215 yards and a league-leading 16 TDs last season. Hard as it may be to believe, those numbers could rise in 2014.
