It's July, and that means #Fantasy Football season is just 2 months away. That means it's time to start preparing for the draft by taking a look at some prospects and draft targets. If you haven't yet started, this article series will give you a head start on the rest of the league. In this article, I'll take an in depth look at four of the most underrated #tight ends in fantasy football today; these players will offer a lot of value to fantasy teams.

1. Charles Clay (Buffalo Bills)

Everyone loves to hate on Buffalo, but they actually do have a few decent fantasy football players on the roster. One of the most underrated ones is tight end Charles Clay, who should have a more significant role in the offense with Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin gone.

Those lost targets should go toward Clay, who finished the fantasy football season with three double digit performances in his last four games. Clay is not being drafted in the #Top 200 right now, which means he offers a low risk, high reward return to fantasy owners.

2. Jack Doyle (Indianapolis Colts)

Andrew Luck and the Colts have had two tight ends for far too long. Doyle broke onto the fantasy scene last season by scoring 2 touchdowns and fifteen fantasy points in his first game. Doyle scored only 3 touchdowns for the rest of the season, but did put up decent reception and yardage totals. Now that Dwayne Allen is on the Patriots, Doyle will be the featured tight end in an offense that loves to utilize one. Doyle is currently drafted as the 12th tight end in the very late rounds of fantasy drafts.

3. David Njoku (Cleveland Browns)

Normally, I am not an advocate of drafting rookies.

However, I will make an exception for Njoku, who has reportedly shined in every practice, catching everything thrown his way. Cleveland will likely be down in most games, which means whoever is at quarterback will be forced to throw. Brock Osweiler loved throwing to C.J. Fiedorowicz last season and would continue throwing to his tight end. There's no reason to believe that Cody Kessler and DeShone Kizer won't look Njoku's way either. And because tight end David Njoku can be drafted so late, there's no reason not to take a flier on a player with this much upside.

4. Coby Fleener (New Orleans Saints)

Remember when Fleener was the talk of the town last fantasy football season? So do I. I was against drafting him back then, because his price was pushed up to an extremely unreasonable level. Now he is priced correctly and should be drafted in fantasy football leagues as a sleeper tight end. He had only two double digit performances last season, but he's had an entire year to build chemistry with Drew Brees and should improve upon his performance this year. And, because he's being drafted at the 160th spot on average in drafts, it's worth spending a speculative pick on him.
