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. 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
  O.J. Howard, TB: Already entering third year, 2019 could be the first season Bucs unleash him.

  Noah Fant, DEN: Superb athlete finds great fit in what should be a TE-friendly offense.

  Jared Cook, NO: Age only thing keeping him from ranking inside top 10.

Mark Andrews, BAL: How different will his usage be in 2019 now that Hayden Hurst is healthy?

  Irv Smith, MIN: GM hopes second-round rookie can eventually mimic Jordan Reed.

Mike Gesicki, MIA: One of bigger storylines in Miami this season will be how much differently second-year TE is used.

  Kahale Warring, HOU: Possesses Travis Kelce starter kit in terms of talent but has much developing to do.
