2020 (Projected)SF 85 1,120 6 148.0  

Outlook: While the 49ers lack a true alpha WR1, they make up for it with one of the greatest tight ends in the history of the game. Yes, George Kittle - at age 26 - has already solidified himself as one of the all-time greats at the position. He's an elite run blocker, but fantasy owners have to be in love with a player who has gone over 1,000 receiving yards in each of his past two seasons. To put that into perspective, both Tony Gonzalez and Rob Gronkowski only had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons once during their careers, while Antonio Gates had just two 1,000-yard seasons his entire career. With another high-volume season, Kittle could become the second tight end in history (Travis Kelce) to hit the 1,000-yard mark for the third straight season.

Kittle produced his 1,053 receiving yards in 2019 in just 14 starts, so his 16-game pace would've put him over 1,200 receiving yards. While his reception and yardage numbers are off the charts, Kittle has actually been unlucky in the touchdown department over the past two seasons, having scored just five times in each of the past two seasons. The 49ers were extraordinarily successful running the ball in the red zone as they finished with a league-leading 23 rushing touchdowns, but that type of success is extremely difficult to replicate. If the team sees a bit of a regression back toward the 15 to 20 rushing touchdown range, that would open things up quite a bit for Kittle to potentially get into the end zone more often. If he can bump that touchdown total up a bit, Kittle is suddenly producing WR1 numbers from the tight end position. That's potentially a league-winning player.

Of course, the fact that Kittle plays tight end is something that we have to keep in mind. While it does give him premium value given that most other tight ends aren't nearly as productive, the tight end position itself is also the most-injured position in all of fantasy football. Kittle himself missed a pair of games during the middle of the 2019 season and it's always possible that he suffers some sort of injury that prevents him from being his usual explosive self. The added risk of injury makes taking a tight end in the early rounds a risky proposition any year but Kittle is the type of player who could legitimately finish as the TE1 and give his fantasy owners a gigantic edge at the position.

 Zach Ertz, PHI (Bye: 9)
Height: 6’6”   Weight: 252   DOB: 1990-12-10   Age: 29
College: Stanford   Draft: 2013 Round 2 (3) 
SeasonTeamGameRec Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2017PHI1474 824 8 130.4 9.3
2018PHI16116 1,163 8 164.3 10.3
2019PHI1588 916 6 127.6 8.5
2020 (Projected)PHI 81 855 7 127.5  

Outlook: After setting an NFL record for catches in a season to tight ends in 2018, Ertz was somewhat of a disappointment for owners last season based on where he was drafted. Ertz posted single-digit fantasy performances in seven of his first eight games, as teams opted to bracket cover him with the team dealing with injuries to wide receivers. Despite his fall off from the previous season, Ertz did end the season with the second-most catches in his career and six receiving touchdowns.

If DeSean Jackson can stay healthy and other Eagles wide receivers step up for the injured Alshon Jeffery, Ertz could once again see primarily linebacker and nickel back coverage, giving him the opportunity to thrive. You could also argue that Ertz and Dallas Goedert are the only two targets Wentz trusts at this time outside of Jackson, which could lead to a ton of targets and volume.

Another thing to consider is the quality of targets that Ertz received last season. His 19 red zone targets were tied with George Kittle and Mark Andrews for second at the tight end position, despite Ertz missing time with injuries. With Jeffery (the top red zone threat at the WR position for the team) out to start the year, Ertz could be in line for an uptick in touchdown production.

 Darren Waller, LV (Bye: 6)
Height: 6’6”   Weight: 238   DOB: 1992-09-13   Age: 27
College: Georgia Tech   Draft: 2015 Round 6 (28) 
SeasonTeamGameRec Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2018LV46 75 0 9.6 2.4
2019LV1690 1,145 3 133.0 8.3
2020 (Projected)LV 84 977 5 127.7  

Outlook: A lack of deep pass attempts certainly did benefit the Raiders wide receivers in 2019, but there's no question that it helped tight end Darren Waller. Waller broke out in a huge way, becoming one of fantasy football's most valued assets as he caught 90 passes for 1,145 yards. He was unlucky in that he scored just three touchdowns despite all those catches and yards, but he still finished as the No. 4 fantasy football tight end. He was one of the few true difference makers at the position and helped propel fantasy owners to championships by producing three 100-yard performances in his final five regular season games.

A relatively unknown player heading into 2019, Waller now finds himself being drafted among the top five players at the tight end position and many view him as sort of the break-off point from the "elite" tight ends to the players we have questions about. Certainly Waller himself is not without concern as he essentially broke out completely out of nowhere after three NFL seasons where he essentially did nothing and a less-than-spectacular collegiate resume. However, Waller is a rare athlete at the position at 6'6", 255 lbs with sub-4.5 forty speed. That type of player just does not come along very often and with his off-field issues appearing to be a thing of the past, there's a real chance that we might be looking at one of the best tight ends in the NFL today and a player who could help win fantasy championships again this season.

While he may regress slightly in total targets given the added weapons in the Raiders' offense, look for Waller to again lead the Raiders in targets, receptions and receiving yards again this season. A slight dip in targets and even yards could be offset, however, by added production in the touchdown column. He could double or even nearly triple his 2019 touchdown total here this season.

 Evan Engram, NYG (Bye: 11)
Height: 6’3”   Weight: 234   DOB: 1994-09-02   Age: 25
College: Mississippi   Draft: 2017 Round 1 (23)

2019NYG844 467 3 65.4 8.2
2020 (Projected)NYG 57 641 5 94.1  

Outlook: Evan Engram officially has taken over the role left by Jordan Reed as the talented tight end everybody loves, but who cannot stay healthy.

The former first-round pick from Ole Miss managed to play in just half of the team's games in 2019, the third season in a row in which he has failed to play a full slate since entering the league in 2017.

The talent is there, but he cannot stay on the field. If you take him, you need to have other options in mind as an injury replacement.

On a positive note, Engram did lead the team in red zone targets despite playing in only eight games, which is a huge indication of the value he has near the end zone for quarterback Daniel Jones.
