2012 Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings: Who to Target?

Geoff Burke - US PRESSWIRE
Keeping in the theme of who to target in 2012 let's turn our targets to the top tight ends to nab in your 2012 fantasy football drafts.

Looking at the no brainer club: Jimmy Graham (TE, NO) and Rob Gronkowski (TE, NE)

In no particular order here are the tight ends to target:

Fred Davis (TE, WAS) - Fred Davis is a gifted athlete and I have no doubt that the new QB RGIII will be targeting Davis like a madman.  I don't doubt Davis to find nearly 1,000 yards and 5 TD's in 2012.  He is going to be a weekly starter on your team if you don't snag one of the no brainers.

Brent Celek (TE, PHI) - Brent Celek has all the potential in the world to put up solid weekly fantasy options.  He can be boom or bust in some leagues so good to have a back-up and play the matchups with Celek as your TE.

Vernon Davis (TE, SF) - Vernon Davis is always good for 750+ yards and 5+ TDs.  He is a safe pick in 2012.

Jacob Tamme (TE, DEN) - Peyton Manning loves to throw to his TE and the only receiver on the team that he has past experience with is Tamme.  I love Tamme's upside and he can be drafted late in your 2012 drafts.

Martellus Bennett (TE, NYG) - I have to believe Bennett will be the starter in 2012 due to injuries in New York.  If he starts every game this year I would predict 750+ yards and 5+ TD's for a TE that you can have in the last rounds of your draft.
