We move to the tight ends as we update for likely the last time during the season the rankings from this group.

1.  Jimmy Graham:  Not even close.  Graham has been well worth the first round pick anyone invested in him.  Performs like a WR 1.
2.  Jordan Cameron:  Has only two fewer catches then Graham and plays with much worse QB's.  What a find.
3.  Vernon Davis:  11 touchdowns speaks to Davis' continued standard league excellence/
4.  Julius Thomas:  The guy is a monster when on the field but Thomas looks like another perennial injury concern.
5.  Rob Gronkowski:  Again there is never any question of talent here but instead the massive and serious injuries Gronk has had.  He may not even be ready for the start of the 2014 season.
6.  Jason Witten:  Witten's touchdowns are up but his reception totals are down....and sharply.  NOt old enough yet to worry about a dropoff trend.
7.  Tony Gonzalez:  This is me saying Gonzo will be back for one more crack at it next season.
8.  Antonio Gates:  Has had a renaissance season but no way I am banking on him staying as healthy again next season.
9.  Charles Clay:  Had a quietly solid breakout season for an improving Miami offense.  Could completely break out a season later.
10. Greg Olsen:  Has been a bit streaky but Olsen remains Cam Newton's top red zone target.
11. Jordan Reed:  Sleeper I will be all over next season.
12. Martellus Bennett:  Won't light up the world but steady.
13. Coby Fleener:  Has made nice improvements but eventual return of Dwayne Allen limits upside.
14. Garrett Graham:  At the very least likely has earned the starting spot for 2014 as Owen Daniels likely to be cut.
15. Heath Miller:  Veteran continues his status as Ben Roethlisber's security blanket this season.
16. Dennis Pitta:  If he didn't get hurt, would have been a top five guy. 

There you have it.  As always let us hear your thoughts.
