Any of these first five guys are the league's elite at the position, but if you will still find quality PPR producers in the mid to later rounds.
Kellen Winslow, TBB - The former stud TE is mercifully out of Cleveland and should be the primary reception threat for the Buccaneers this season. If he had a solid quarterback I'd predict 100 catches and push him up the board, but right now none of the Bucs QBs are raising the fantasy flag.
Chris Cooley, WAS - I like Owen Daniels a bit more, but Cooley gets targeted 100+ times each season. He didn't do much in the end-zone in 2008, but he'll certainly improve on last year's lone TD.
Owen Daniels, HOU - Like Cooley, Daniels is a prime target in his offense, but also like him, he doesn't find the end-zone much. But targets equal opportunity, and that's what we're looking for in a PPR league.
John Carlson, SEA - If Matt Hassleback can stay healthy, he likes to throw the ball...a lot. I expect Carlson to see 100+ targets in 2009.
Dustin Keller, NYJ - With Laveranues Coles gone, and blocking tight end Chris Davis added to the team, I like Keller's chance for a big season.
Brent Celek, PHI - Similar to Keller, I see a world of opportunity for Celek in the Eagles offense this season. He's not likely to go as one of the top 10 TEs, so he may be a very productive sleeper.
Zach Miller, OAK - Zach is target one in Oakland, which right now isn't saying much, but the lack of deep wide receiver strength boosts Miller's value.
Brandon Pettigrew, DET - Another murky QB situation is unfolding in Detroit, but Pettigrew was the top TE in the 2009 draft. He has great hands, is 6-5 and he should make an impact right away.
Vernon Davis, SFO - This is a boom or bust season for Davis who has not lived up to his early hype. I think this is the year he puts it all together. A new coach with a new point of view is going to right Davis' ship by the bay.
Visanthe Shiancoe, MIN - Another guy almost labeled a bust before last season's break-out performance. He is highly focused on besting last year's numbers, and with Sage Rosenfels under center, I think he can.
Brad Cottam, KCC - My sleeper TE this season. He is stepping into Tony G's spot, and while I don't expect similar production, those 154 targets have got to be thrown to someone.
Kevin Boss, NYG - Eli Manning did not target Boss very often last season, but Kevin is expected to be more involved in his second full season as starter.
Jeremy Shockey, NOS - The shock factor is gone, but he plays in the league's most explosive offense. That has to good for something.
Tony Scheffler, DEN - A new coach who likes to use TE's and a QB with limited passing strength means Tony could be in for a nice season (if he's healthy). So far I've heard opposing views in Denver. The first said Scheffler is likely to be shopped and traded while another says he's building good chemistry with Orton and the coaches like what they see. It's not improbable both are correct.
Heath Miller, PIT - He is one of Big Ben's favorite red-zone targets. He missed three games last season and still saw 65 balls thrown his way.
