2010 fantasy football draft guide: tight end TE overrated players. Welcome to the 2010 fantasy football season! Here are my top 3 tight end TE overrated player picks to begin the 2010 fantasy football season. Overrated player picks are based on a standard mixed NFC/AFC single season redraft fantasy football league for the 2010 season. Tight end TE overrated player selections are based on players who will likely be drafted earlier in 2010 fantasy football drafts than what their overall fantasy football scoring worth will warrant for the 2010 season. Tight end TE overrated player selections should not really be considered busts, as they could easily and should put up solid stats during the 2010 season. However, overrated player selections are essentially players I would not reach for or draft too high in fantasy football drafts to begin the 2010 season.

Tight End (TE) Overrated Players
Dallas Clark – Ind
Commonly ranked and drafted as the #1 tight end in fantasy football leagues to begin the 2010 season, the scoring deference between Clark and say the #6 drafted tight end will likely only amount in about an average of 1-3 scoring points more per game. So is drafting Clark 20 some picks earlier than what the #6 tight end will be drafted worth it? In my opinion, no. Anyway I am not saying Clark will be a bust this season, as I am nearly certain he will not be, but the overall scoring value you get from drafting Clark early just does not equal his fantasy football scoring worth among other tight ends for the 2010 season.
Tony Gonzalez – Atl
The Gonzalez name at tight end has been a staple in fantasy football leagues over the past ten years. However at age 34 and with other options in the Falcons offense, Gonzalez’s stats could fall again during the 2010 season. With that said, Gonzalez should still be a good bet to tally 700 receiving yards and 3-5 touchdowns, but the reality is reminding fantasy football managers that Gonzalez is just not a top 5 tight end option anymore.
Jeremy Shockey – NO
Entering the 2010 season at age 30, injuries have taken a significant toll on Shockey’s body over the past few seasons. Add in the possible emergence of fellow Saints tight ends David Thomas and 3rd round draft pick Jimmy Graham who stands at 6’8″ and Shockey could be headed for a real downfall during the 2010 season. Overall, I would not draft Shockey higher than the #20 pick among tight ends in my fantasy football draft this season.
