We have classified the following players as Safe Picks for 2013. We will be updating this list throughout the pre-season.
|Martellus Bennett||TE||CHI||26||5||TE - #18|
|I am not quite going to call Martellus Bennett a fantasy stud, but I could make the case that this seasson in Chicago he is going to put up big numbers. I like the combination of Bennett, Marshall and Jeffery and think Cutler is going to love having a TE that he can rely upon. Bennett grabbed 55 passes for 5 TDs in New York last season. I am going to say he nabs 65... Read More|
|Jared Cook||TE||STL||26||4||TE - #8|

|Kyle Rudolph||TE||MIN||24||2||TE - #11|
|The 43rd overall pick of the 2011 draft out of Notre Dame, Rudolph posted a solid 2012 fantasy season thanks to 9 touchdowns, but was less than impressiveon the season in the yardage department (53 catches for 493 yards - 31 YPG). He was held under 40 yards 11 times last season. Rudolph finished as the #9 fantasy TE in 2012 and remains a Ponder favorite in the red ... Read More|
|Julius Thomas||TE||DEN||25||2||TE - #21|
|Thomas has surprised in pre-season and led the team with receptions and yardage. He looks to move above Tamme and Dressen on the depth chart. Thomas is ranked No. 21 TE, but with Peyton Manning as his QB, could be valuable if the chemistry continues. Definitely a draft-day steal here.... Read More|
