Tight End Rankings “The Blueprint Top 70”

New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon drops from 10th in my Fantasy Football Rankings. A four game suspension to a tight end is crushing.

Tight End Rankings

  1. Travis Kelce (Chiefs) – A cut above the rest in an elite offense.
  2. Hunter Henry (Chargers) – Expecting targets to flood his way, Phillip Rivers needs Henry to get the ball in order for their offense to be running on all cylinders, redzone threat, no competition for targets at his position, talented and should finish the season with double digit touchdowns. No 10+ touchdowns? 70 receptions and the 700 yard range is triple sevens which wins on a slot machine.
  3. George Kittle (49ers) – The historical 2018 season was an outlier, Jimmy Garoppolo was injured amongst every player on the 49ers and defenses are now aware of Kittle. With many weapons offensively the niners should return to utilizing two back sets and their versatile receiving core. Still an elite tight end but he will disappoint at his current round 2 ADP.
  4. Zach Ertz (Eagles) – Consistency on a spectacular offense, Carson Wentz safety blanket and best friend in real life. Chain mover who is still elite.
  5. Evan Engram (Giants) – In line for his breakout season and will rack up receptions in garbage time. Especially when Daniel Jones enters the fold.
  6. O.J. Howard (Buccaneers) – Will be part of the big 3 in Tampa. Playmaking abilities with health concerns. Would love him on my teams but fading at current ADP. His upside is top 3.
  7. Vance McDonald (Steelers) – Should walk into massive target share and is an underrated pass catcher. Worth the risk at current ADP with health concerns.
  8. David Njoku (Browns) – Cleveland’s offense will put up high point totals from week to week and if coaching gameplans per matchup. Njoku has top 5 upside. His redzone usage could make him a less efficient Eric Ebron in 2019.
  9. Jared Cook (Saints) – Finally went off on a shitty team in 2018. Inconsistent weekly outcomes have me fading Cook at current ADP.
  10. Eric Ebron (Colts) – Might as well snag him if he keeps dropping in drafts. Outlier season in 2018. The offense and his redzone usage keep him relevant.
  11. Austin Hooper (Falcons) – Consistent option who may not whew opponents but come season’s end. Hooper being locked in as the weekly starter produces an okay starter in which Fantasy Football owners know what to expect.
  12. Jimmy Graham (Packers) – Touchdown total should see a bump in 2019 in a tight end friendly offense.
  13. Noah Fant (Broncos) – Joe Flacco loves tight ends or a rookie in Drew Lock will need to utilize the tight end. A first round draft pick with his talent should see 5+ targets per game.
  14. Mark Andrews (Ravens) – Fantasy Football Friends witnessed his big play ability and sure hands. Expecting an efficient year with his 60% range snap counts per game. Don’t be scared to draft him. Just ask yourself this. With Lamar Jackson’s horrible arm talent. Which player other than a running back would you trust to lead the team in receptions and touchdowns?
  15. Trey Burton (Bears) – Often we get hype for a player one year. Only to lose faith to quickly. Its still a Nagy offense and Burton may return to semi hype in 2019.
  16. Delanie Walker (Titans)
  17. Jack Doyle (Colts)
  18. T.J. Hockenson (Lions)
  19. Greg Olsen (Panthers)

  23. Dallas Goedert (Eagles)
  24. Jordan Reed (Redskins)
  25. Mike Geisicki (Dolphins)
  26. Hayden Hurst (Ravens)
  27. Jason Witten (Cowboys)
  28. Josh Oliver (Jaguars)
  29. Will Dissly (Seahawks)
  30. Charles Clay (Cardinals)
  31. Jace Sternberger (Packers)
  32. Ben Watson (Patriots)
  33. Tyler Higbee (Rams)
  34. Cameron Brate (Buccaneers)
  35. Matt LaCosse (Patriots)

  50. Demetrius Harris (Browns)
  51. Stephen Anderson (Patriots)
  52. Kaden Smith (49ers)
  53. Eric Saubert (Falcons)

  55. Jason Groom (Bills)
  56. Jeff Heuerman (Broncos)
  57. Rick Seals-Jones (Cardinals)
