2017 Tight End Rankings
Updated June 6th 2017
- Rob Gronkowski, NE – News out of New England is Gronk will be ready for the season.
- Travis Kelce, KC – Gronk light, Kelce has fewer injury concerns.
- Greg Olsen, CAR – Olsen has been Netwon’s favorite target over the last two years, not much will change this year.
- Tyler Eifert, CIN – Eifert could use a little health, but he has top 3 TE potential when he’s on the field.
- Jordan Reed, WAS – Competition and health drive Reeds targets down.
- Jimmy Graham, SEA – Wilson and Graham finally appear to be on the same page.
- Delanie Walker, TEN – With a rookie expected to play big minutes, Walker could see his fair share of targets.
- Kyle Rudolph, MIN – Rudolph finally showed the skill we’ve been clamoring for, another 125 targets are reasonable.
- Martellus Bennett, GB – From New England to Green Bay; Bennett couldn’t have landed in a better spot.
- Zach Ertz, PHI – Ertz caught 75% of the passes thrown to him… another year of Wentz could mean big numbers.
- Hunter Henry, LAC – henry figures to surpass Gates as the Chargers primary TE, which could mean big time production.
- Eric Ebron, DET – Not a sexy pick, Ebron should finish right around 12-16.
- Jack Doyle, IND – Doyle could use a little polish but Indy figures to throw the ball a lot and he’ll be a nice red zone target for Luck.
- Coby Fleener, NO – Despite having decent numbers, Fleener disappointed in NO last year.
- C.J. Fiedorowicz, HOU – Fiedorowicz outplayed his competition in Houston but his upside is limited until Watson can prove he can play.
- Jason Witten, DAL – Witten is good for 650 yards but his TD’s have dried up. He’s no more than a bench/streamer candidate.
- O.J. Howard, TB – Howard is likely going to split time with Brate out of the gates but should usurp the starter role before long.
- Julius Thomas, JAC – Thomas could be poised for a breakout after reuniting with Adam Gase in Miami.
- David Njou, CLE – Njoku could prove to be one of the best Cleveland picks in years, expect some decent returns in year one.
- Austin Hooper, ATL – With Tamme gone and Atlanta’s high flying offense looking to continue, Hooper has the look of a sleeper candidate.
