Injuries, suspensions and new locations are the biggest factors for predicting the top 10 DraftKings tight end projections. Greg Olsen ($5,300), Jimmy Graham ($5,600) and Rob Gronkowski (n/a) headline a top-heavy list of reliable daily fantasy contributors at tight end in 2015.
Tight end as a whole can be a frustratingly inconsistent position to predict since most players’ values depend strongly on scoring touchdowns. This reality is reflected in DraftKings’ player prices in which the top Week 1 tight end—Graham—sits thousands of dollars below the top prospects at the other big four positions: quarterback Aaron Rodgers ($8,600), running back Jamaal Charles ($7,900) and wide receiver Julio Jones ($9,300).
The following list outlines what to expect from the top 10 daily fantasy tight ends over the course of the 2015 season.
