Big surprise, I have Gronk as my number 1 TE. Who to put at number 2 was much more difficult to decide. I went Olsen over Reed simply because I don't trust Reed to stay healthy. Both Fleener and Green have climbed in the rankings since they signed with new teams with high powered passing offenses in the off-season. The Saints offense revived Ben Watson's career last year and I think it can do the same for Fleener this year. With the suspension of Martavis Bryant, Big Ben is going to be looking for another target to throw to after Antonio Brown. Ladarius Green could be that second or third option in an explosive Steelers offense.

I think Julius Thomas has potential to be a top 10 TE this year. Jacksonville is gonna be good, they will win 8-10 games, and I think part of that success will come from Thomas. Remember what the Patriots did with Gronk and Aaron Hernadez in 2011? I see Gronk and Marty Bennett doing something similar this year. Martellus Bennett could crack the top 10 among TE's in 2016. Take a late round flier on him.
