Tight End Rankings “The Floor Plan” The Sky is the Limit!

Fantasy Football Tight Ends will rebound drastically in 2019. What do I mean by this? Basically we will see a historic amount of bigtime weekly performances this season. All signs point to this in my view. We have the studs up top, multiple huge upside athletes with NFL experience and in positive offensive situations. 2018 tight ends were ravaged by injuries and if these tight ends remain healthy. The sky is the limit!

Travis Kelce is the clear cut number one tight end in a prolific offense, with data to support his high floor. His 1st round ADP is fair but he may underperform in comparison to 2018, especially with all the offensive weapons on Kansas City’s roster. Zach Ertz will see his targets drop and George Kittle will see his 700+ YAC drop. Still viable options at the position but not worth a draft pick in the top 3 rounds in my mind.

Evan Engram, O.J. Howard and Hunter Henry will be monsters and have been monsters when on the field. All walk into offensive situations that favor them as top 3 targets on their respective teams, red zone upside, big play abilities and versatility that will be utilized in multiple formations. Engram improved with less drops in 2018 in comparison to 2017. Also giving us a high floor without Odell Beckham Jr on the field. O.J. Howard was a huge performer weekly before injury and is now in an offense led by Bruce Arians. Expecting Bruce to find a way to use Howard, especially in the red zone.

Hunter Henry will finish as the #2 tight end in 2019. Rivers dependability on using Antonio Gates was a good reason for drafting Henry. Rivers and Henry clearly had a connection pre injury. The Giants, Buccaneers and Chargers all have massive amounts of targets opening up with the changes made this off season. Add in these tight ends are studs athletically wise, perfect for their offensive systems and the sky is the limit!

Now that we have the elite options out of the way. We are stuck with streamers correct? Actually NO! We still have viable options in Jared Cook, Vance McDonald and Mark Andrews. Next we look at solid options on a weekly basis that give us predictable floors, a couple huge weeks and relieve stress because we know what we will get each week. come season’s end they will be around the top 10-15 in total points. We have Austin Hooper, Noah Fant, TJ Hockenson, Trey Burton, Delanie Walker, Jordan Reed, Chris Herndon and Greg Olsen. Quite a long list and hard to believe? Well of course it is. However at season’s end it will all make sense. Finally we have options like Jimmy Graham, Dallas Goedert, Kyle Rudolph, Jack Doyle, Darren Waller, Eric Ebron and David Njoku who are great streaming options that offer us boom or bust weeks.
