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. I will release my next set of rankings before the start of the 2018 regular season. Players with an up arrow are those that moved up eight or more spots from my previous set of rankings. Likewise, a down arrow represents a drop of eight or more spots.

COMMENTS
  David Njoku, CLE: New OC Todd Haley wanted a downfield TE throughout Pittsburgh tenure; he has one now in Cleveland.

  Trey Burton, CHI: Favorite to be 2018's newest fantasy darling at TE.

  Mike Gesicki, MIA: Essentially an oversized slot WR with freakish athleticism; near-limitless upside.

  Jimmy Graham, GB: Is he merely a red zone player at this point or can he still dominate all over the field?

  George Kittle, SF: Full offseason with Jimmy G in TE-friendly offense bodes well for his immediate future.

  Jack Doyle, IND: Arrival of Eric Ebron caps the upside he displayed in 2017.

  Eric Ebron, IND: Should have ample opportunities as "move TE" in two-tight offense.

  Ricky Seals-Jones, ARI: New coaching staff open to seeing if last year's flashes turn into something more consistent.
