Franchise's Fantasy Football Rankings - Tight Ends

Undaunted by The Dude selling me out for some clown on YouTube, I'm pressing ahead with rankings for tight ends. I have mixed feelings about tight ends in fantasy football - part of me wishes leagues would do away with the need to start them because so few can make a difference; the other part of me thinks squeezing a few extra points out of the TE spot can separate great fantasy owners from the rest of the pack.

Without further ado, here's the top 25 TEs as of July 23 for three different scoring systems: PPR (TDs + yardage + 1 pt. per reception), Performance (TDs + yardage) and Basic (TDs only).

TE Rankings - PPR
  1. Antonio Gates, SD
  2. Tony Gonzalez, KC

Why isn't Marques Colston ranked here? He was the top TE in Yahoo! last year.

Another funny from The Dude!

Colston didn't play any TE for the Saints so he isn't going to be TE-eligible in Yahoo this year...
