Top players you shouldn't forget about in fantasy football drafts

Retired tight end Tony Gonzalez caught 83 passes and eight touchdowns in 2013, which was his final season, and did so at age 37 with precious little fantasy belief when the year began. It wasn’t his best season, but he finished in the top five among tight ends for standard fantasy scoring -- pretty much the same kind of season he always had. Gonzalez had basically been pronounced done as a fantasy asset years earlier, so I quite enjoyed waiting until the 10th or 11th round in his final seasons to enjoy his excellent production.

That brings us to San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates.
