Finally, we have the tight ends. It’s a group with a lot of familiar names, but some new faces, too. Enjoy the read!
- Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs
With Tyreek Hill out of KC, Kelce is the unquestioned #1 target for the Chiefs. He’s aging, but he’s due for at least two more big seasons.
- Kyle Pitts, Atlanta Falcons
Pitts’s potential is through the roof, as he topped 1,000 yards as a rookie. He’s by far the Falcons’ best receiving option, so with some more work in the red zone, he’ll be in contention for TE1.
- Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens
Andrews broke out last season, but most of his big games came when Lamar Jackson was injured. With Jackson back and healthy, Andrews’s huge weekly performances seem like an anomaly to me.
- George Kittle, San Francisco 49ers
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Kittle put up elite numbers, but he’s still more than capable of doing it. He’s too talented to fade.
- Darren Waller, Las Vegas Raiders
After a down year, Waller is no longer the Raiders’ top receiving weapon. That title goes to Davante Adams, and as a result, Waller’s target share should see a decline.
- Dalton Schultz, Dallas Cowboys
Schultz will have plenty of opportunity in this offense without Amari Cooper. He may not be the most dynamic tight end, but he’ll catch enough passes to be a top fantasy tight end.
- T.J. Hockenson, Detroit Lions
Hockenson didn’t quite live up to the hype last season, and now he has even more target competition. He serves as a low-end TE1.
- Dallas Goedert, Philadelphia Eagles
If AJ Brown wasn’t traded to Philly, Goedert would be a top-five fantasy tight end. He’s still very talented and could have a career season, but having Brown in the fold is definitely a detriment to his numbers.
- Zach Ertz, Arizona Cardinals
- Hunter Henry, New England Patriots
- Dawson Knox, Buffalo Bills
- Pat Freiermuth, Pittsburgh Steelers
- Albert Okwuegbunam, Denver Broncos
- Cole Kmet, Chicago Bears
- Irv Smith Jr., Minnesota Vikings
