The 2013 Fantasy Football season is dead and gone. We get that. However, with the NFL playoffs comes another chance to claim a title or at least win some cash. Whether you’re in a playoff league or just playing weekly games on various fantasy sites, we’re here to assist the fantasy owner or fantasy gamer along the way.

To get things rolling, let’s take a look at the top tight ends in fantasy football for the first round of the playoffs:

1. Jimmy Graham (New Orleans Saints)

Is there a better tight end in fantasy football? Nope, there’s not.

2. Vernon Davis (San Francisco 49ers)

Davis is easily one of the best tight ends in football right now and just wrapped up arguably his best season in his career, finishing down the stretch with six touchdowns in seven games. Considering he dropped 98 yards and two touchdowns on the Pack in week one, he’s got to once again be considered an elite play this week, even in the horrible weather in Green Bay.

3. Antonio Gates (San Diego Chargers)

Gates is probably the only other tight end in these rankings you’d really want to roll into the playoffs with. With that said, he’s even far from reliable. He has an up and down 2013 and simply isn’t the gamer he once was. He’s much cheaper than the two studs ahead of him, so he may be worth a shot this weekend, though.

4. Coby Fleener (Indianapolis Colts)

5. Brent Celek (Philadelphia Eagles)

6. Jermaine Gresham (Cincinnati Bengals)

7. Zach Ertz (Philadelphia Eagles)

8. Andrew Quarless (Green Bay Packers)

9. Zach Ertz (Philadelphia Eagles)

10. Sean McGrath (Kansas City Chiefs)
