Fantasy Football Rankings 2012 (Tight Ends): Saints' Jimmy Graham Is Top Rated

Tight ends might be a fantasy football enigma from time to time, but in 2012, your best bet to get some semblance of security from the position might lie with Jimmy Graham, who tops SB Nation's list of fantasy prospects at the TE spot.

Graham caught the third-most passes in the NFL last season, hauling in 99 passes 1,310 yards and 11 touchdowns. His 11 scores nearly doubled his previous career touchdown total of six.

Jacksonville's Marcedes Lewis appears on the preseason rankings as well, landing at No. 18. Lewis caught 39 balls last season for 460 yards, but was unable to register a touchdown in 2012, which significantly impacts his fantasy value potential.

The Atlanta veteran Tony Gonzalez also appears on the list at No. 11, while New Englands Rob Gronkowski (No. 2), San Diego's Antonio Gates (No. 3) and Green Bay's Jermichael Finley (No. 4) round out the top four.
