Will any of the Cleveland Browns' tight ends emerge as viable fantasy football options in 2012?

Ray Guilfoyle of SB Nation released his top 20 fantasy football tight ends for 2012, but incumbent starter Benjamin Watson's value is more as a blocker than as a receiver, and heavy competition for the backup spot make it questionable as to which of Cleveland's tight ends, if any, will emerge as big weapons in the passing game.

Watson is a 9-year veteran who missed time last season because of concussions. Watson caught 37 passes for 410 yards and two touchdowns, but he only played in 13 games due to those injuries.

He was backed up by Evan Moore, who was more of a threat in the passing game, catching 34 passes for 324 yards and four touchdowns. Moore, who is described by ESPN.com as, "basically a wideout playing tight end," was the more natural pass catcher of the two players, but he was just activated from the PUP list in early August and he's being pushed for the backup spot by second-year player Jordan Cameron, who caught six passes in eight games last season. Cleveland also has veterans Alex Smith and Dan Gronkowski on the roster.
