Good Morning FantasyHolics!
Today is Day 3 of our Lesson's Learned article we are going to discuss the TE position.
TE was drafted in 4 Tiers in 2020.
Tier 1: Kelce and Kittle
Tier 2: Andrews, Ertz, and Waller
Tier 3: Engram, Henry, Gronkowski, Higbee
Tier 4: Cook, Hooper, Fant
Most people who drafted Travis Kelce in the first or second round, got what they expected from him in a PPR League with 312 points and 20.9 points per game.
George Kittle was injured. Darren Waller came through with 17.4 points per game.
Mark Andrews did give you 12.2 points per game, which was good enough if you drafted him in the 4th round.
If you waited beyond the 4th round and drafted Hunter Henry, Rob Gronkowski, and Noah Fant, you got about 10 points per game. I'll take 10 points per game from my Tight End.
The rest of the Tight Ends were basically undrafted, but if you had one you also got about 10 points per game but trying to guess which one to play was crap shoot.
My answer on TE, is still don't draft the top Tight Ends outside of Kelce. Stay away from the injury histories. You will find TEs that will get you 10-12 points per game in the later rounds and you don't have to sacrifice a good WR or RB.
This chart shows the ADP (Average Draft Position) of the Top 12 TEs. It then shows you where each TE finished the 2020 season based on Total PPR Points scored. In parenthesis it shows you the players ADP compared to where they finished so that you see that comparison. Lastly, it also shows Average Points Scored Per Game.
