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 after the NFL Draft. I will then update the rankings before the start of the 2021 regular season and again midway through the season.

COMMENTS
  Noah Fant, DEN: Decent consistent QB play is all he needs to challenge the best at the position.

  Robert Tonyan, GB: Unlikely to score a TD every 4.7 catches again, but he looks to have staying power.

  Dallas Goedert, PHI: Departures of Carson Wentz/Doug Pederson could lead to less reliance on TE in Philly offense.

  Irv Smith, MIN: Release of Kyle Rudolph should allow him to show off Jordan Reed-like upside.

  Adam Trautman, NO: Time is now for highly talented youngster after Jared Cook/Josh Hill were let go in early March.

  Harrison Bryant, CLE: Could push Austin Hooper for playing time as early as 2021.

  Donald Parham, LAC: Good chance he will be asked to replace Hunter Henry.

  Brycen Hopkins, LAR: Could easily be asked to assume Gerald Everett's old role in offense.
