-Give the Carolina Panthers' Greg Olsen a mulligan for 2017 as he was as durable a player as you could get in all of fantasy football prior last year's injury frustration.  Yes he is getting a bit long in the tooth but no one is trusted more by QB Cam Newton in the Panthers passing offense.
-Kelce gets the nod over Gronk simply due to the latter's inability to stay on the field.  Plus, count on K.C. Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes looking for his security blanket in Kelce often throughout the season as most young passers do.
-While Jimmy Graham is a notch or two below athletically what he once was with the New Orleans Saints, he should be a lock for double-digit scores after signing on with the Green Bay Packers and QB Aaron Rodgers this past winter.
-If you choose to wait on drafting a tight end, old reliable but somewhat boring veterans Walker and Rudolph are excellent options.
-The hype is getting out of hand with the Chicago Bears' Trey Burton and it is to the point that he may not be worth the cost.
