Considerations for TE
  • Talent
  • Three years of solid (or better) production remaining
  • Age
  • Durability
  • Proven consistency
  • Age/skill of supporting cast
  • Coaching/scheme stability/situation
These rankings are for PPR leagues, where each touchdown is worth six points.

COMMENTS
  Rob Gronkowski, NE: Still a TE1 talent, but injury history is too lengthy to ignore now entering his 30s.

Eric Ebron, IND: TD regression could hit hard in 2019, but little question he is Indy's top red zone weapon.

  Mike Gesicki, MIA: The kind of talent worth waiting on.

  Trey Burton, CHI: Bears opted to spread the wealth more than expected in 2018.

Chris Herndon, NYJ: Talented rookie flashing despite being tied to terrible offense.

Ian Thomas, CAR: Season-ending injury to Olsen may begin new era for one of this draft's more complete TE prospects.

Greg Olsen, CAR: Another foot injury makes retirement a distinct possibility.
