10. Maxx Williams, TE Minnesota Golden Gophers
Maxx Williams is unquestionable the number one tight end in the 2015 NFL draft and subsequently is expected to be the first rookie tight end off the board in all fantasy drafts. Often times rookies tight ends can bring value to fantasy teams, Williams can be that guy.
No one is saying Williams is the next Gronk, but don’t let that disparage you from taking a shot at this talented rookie. Why you ask? Year and year out the tight end position contentiously lacks depth in fantasy football, making it that much more important to secure your team a quality tight end.
Expect Williams to go late in fantasy drafts as a potential big time sleeper. Like any pass catcher, Williams’s value will greatly depend on who is throwing him the football come 2015. He might be ranked ten on my list, but Williams is a great sleeper for deeper leagues.
