1. Rob Gronkowski: Easily still the best tight end in the leauge and perhaps the best the leauge has ever seen. Especially after Julian Edlemans suspension take him in the first three rounds. Tom Brady’s favorite target, especially if the rumor he threatened to retire if Gronk was traded is true.
2. Travis Kelce
3. Zach Ertz
4. Greg Olsen: This may be a bit high for Olsen I admit, however if he and Cam Newton are clicking he becomes one of the best tight ends in fantasy. The biggest concern surrounding Olsen is obviously his injury from last year. He’s an aging tight end and age and one of the most physical positions in football don’t go well together.
5. Delaine Walker
6. Jordan Reed: Reed gets the spot ahead of Engram for one simple reason. QB, Alex Smith has historically always loved his tight ends. Reed will be the next in a long line of fantasy tight end successes beside Smith.
7. Evan Engram: I would put Engram higher on this list, maybe even to four if not for one thing. Eli Manning, the aging QB hasn’t had a good season in about three years now. If Pat Shurmur can turn Eli back into a top half QB Engram will be a home run this year. That is a big if though, if you have faith in an aging Manning draft Engram high, if not he’s a great mid round steal.
8. Kyle Rudolph
9. OJ Howard: Howard was a bright spot in a dismal Buccs season, putting up 432 yards on just 26 receptions. He isn’t a great ppr player but if your drafting in a standard leauge I personally would take him in the early mid rounds 7-10 seems about right.
10. Jimmy Graham: This positioning is based solely on the fact that Aaron Rodgers can turn anyone into a success. If you don’t believe in Graham don’t buy into him, if you do he’s a great sleeper that can have some trade value if need be.
11. Kyle Rudolph
12. Tyler Eifert
13. David Njoku: I really like Njoku, theres untapped talent here.
14. Eric Ebron
15. Trey Burton
16. George Kittle
17. Hayden Hurst
18. Austin Safarian Jenkins
19. Charles Clay
