2014 Dynasty League Rankings

My Dynasty rankings are predicated on a three year window. To project six seasons long term is unrealistic and not feasible considering the flux of free agency and the injury impact of the NFL. Along with different Dynasty league formatting. I factor individual talent, supporting cast, system, injury history/character concerns, and perceived value in the eyes of Dynasty players.

With Gronk down, he's easily the top player at his position and one of the top 10 players in all of FF. - Trade Value 5 Stars
You have to rank him #2 by virtue of his difference-maker production, but given all of his injury issues over the years, I would be inclined to pass. - Trade Value 5 Stars
A tremendous athlete who passes the eyeball test. His production tailed off sharply in the second half of the season, but he looks legit. - Trade Value 4.5 Stars
Year two is usually when you see big strides from a TE, so expect Eifert to build on his solid rookie season with a genuine breakout. - Trade Value 4 Stars
Had a great season in Denver's potent passing attack. I trust his overall talent a little less than some of the other options on the board. I think he owes a lot of his numbers to Manning. - Trade Value 4.5 Stars
If he can shake his concussion issues, he could be a dynamic weapon with his rare catch-and-run ability. Big bust risk given his medical issues. - Trade Value 4 Stars
Versatile athlete quietly had a breakout season with Keller sidelined. Was it a blip on the radar or will the Dolphins continue to feature him? I tend to think he's pretty legit. - Trade Value 3.5 Stars
WR/TE tweener will be a trendy breakout candidate ahead of next season. There are safer options here, but he gets the nod for upside. - Trade Value 4 Stars
Solid, but unspectacular. - Trade Value 3.5 Stars

10. Jason Witten, TE, DAL - Age 32

One of the all-time greats, but he's coming up on the end of his prime. - Trade Value 3 Stars

11. Vernon Davis, TE, SF - Age 30

Explosive deep threat remains a useful option. - Trade Value 3.5 Stars

12. Greg Olsen, TE, CAR - Age 29

Not great, but solid. Expect more of the same until he begins to decline. - Trade Value 3 Stars
Ho-hum low end TE1. Useful with a very modest ceiling. - Trade Value 3 Stars

14. Dennis Pitta, TE, BAL - Age 29

Injury robbed him of a likely career year in 2013. Expect a bounce back to something slightly better than his 2012 output. A good short window bargain bin option. - Trade Value 3.5 Stars

15. Antonio Gates, TE, SD - Age 34

Stellar career. Not much left in the tank. Strictly a rental at this point. - Trade Value 1 Star

16. Zach Ertz, TE, PHI - Age 23

I'm not really a believer, but they gave up a high pick to get him and it's too early to say that he won't pan out. - Trade Value 4 Stars

17. Dwayne Allen, TE, IND - Age 24

Move TE with no real explosiveness, but reliable on short-intermediate routes. - Trade Value 3 Stars

18. Coby Fleener, TE, IND - Age 25

Mild disappointment through two seasons. If he were going to be great, I think he would've flashed more by now. - Trade Value 3 Stars
He may not last now that his old college coach Schiano is gone, but he quietly had a very productive rookie season and could be in line for more. - Trade Value 2.5 Stars

20. Jared Cook, TE, STL - Age 27

Basically just a guy in start 1 TE leagues. Maybe he will make some strides in his second year with the team. - Trade Value 1.5 Stars
He's been pretty mediocre thus far in his NFL career. Maybe a change of scenery would be best for him. - Trade Value 2 Stars
The poor man's Eifert. A fluid, rangy target who should settle in as a fringe top 12 FF TE once Witten moves on. Nice bargain bin sleeper. - Trade Value 1 Star
Boom-or-bust athlete with a high ceiling. He would've been the starter in 2013, but was lost to injury in the preseason. Stash him for 2014 and cross your fingers.

24. Luke Willson, TE, SEA - Age 24

Had a good rookie season. Not a tremendous natural receiver. Has good speed though and is a cerebral player/hard worker who will maximize his talent.

25. Travis Kelce, TE, KC - Age 24

Poor man's Gronk has some upside if he can get healthy and keep himself in one piece. Sloppy movement and bad avoidance skills will always haunt him though. - Trade Value 2.5 Stars
