Tight end is the only position in fantasy football with one sure thing — Rob Gronkowski — and a whole lot of intriguing players that have huge upside but come along with questions.

Guys like Greg Olsen — he’s Cam Newton’s only target, so Jacksonville’s D is going to focus on him.

What about Jimmy Graham? He’s in a new situation on a run-heavy team and in Week 1 he and Russell Wilson will be trying to figure things out.

Then there are the unproven guys who have an excellent opportunity.

Ladarius Green finally gets to show what he’s made of with Antonio Gates suspended. Will be produce Gates-like numbers?

How about Packers’ tight end Richard Rodgers? He’s got the support of Aaron Rodgers and with the loss of Jordy Nelson could that mean more targets?
