Outlook: Ertz set an NFL tight end record with 116 receptions last season in route to finishing as the No.3 tight end behind Travis Kelce and George Kittle. In addition to making a sizable leap in receptions, targets, and receiving yards, Ertz followed up 2017 with a second-consecutive year of eight receiving touchdowns.

With four straight seasons of at least 100 targets, there is no doubt that Ertz will once again be the focal point of the Eagles offense. As many teams struggle to incorporate the tight end position into their offense, the Eagles, 49ers, and Chiefs each feature their respective tight ends prominently, making Kelce, Ertz, and Kittle worth an early draft pick in all formats.

You could argue that no other team in the NFL did more this free agent and NFL draft period to improve their offense that the Eagles. With additions to an already highly touted offensive line, and the signing of free agent DeSean Jackson and rookies JJ Arcega Whiteside and Miles Sanders, Philadelphia is going to be a very strong offense filled with fantasy value. Sitting atop that value pyramid is Zach Ertz, who has another strong chance to be an elite TE in 2019.


 Evan Engram, NYG (Bye: 11)
4
Height: 6’3”   Weight: 234   DOB: 1994-09-02   Age: 24
College: Mississippi   Draft: 2017 Round 1 (23) 
SeasonTeamGameRec Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2017NYG1564 722 6 109.6 7.3
2018NYG1145 577 3 79.3 7.2
2019 (Projected)NYG 74 885 6 124.5  

Outlook: It may surprise some fantasy owners to learn that only Travis Kelce and George Kittle scored more fantasy points per game than Evan Engram over the final five weeks of the season. The former first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft caught 19 receptions in his last three games while averaging 81 yards per game.

The Giants' questionable addition of Golden Tate in the offseason was somewhat of an unusual move considering the fact that both Engram and Sterling Shepard are skilled receivers from the slot. It remains to be seen how the Giants will handle Tate and Shepard, but it Engram's role in the offense is clearly defined.

The two biggest question marks for Engram are his ability to stay healthy, and the worry of the Giants turning to rookie QB Daniel Jones midway through the season.

2019 (Projected)LAC 55 699 5 99.9  

Outlook: Tight end Hunter Henry broke out as a rookie when he scored a ridiculous eight touchdowns on just 36 receptions, then followed that season up with another solid campaign in 2017 despite spending both seasons competing with veteran future hall of fame tight end Antonio Gates for playing time. With Gates retiring prior to the 2018 season, it was supposed to be Henry's time to shine. He quickly rocketed up draft boards and was being selected as a strong TE1 for fantasy purposes. Unfortunately, Henry was the first significant victim of the injury bug as he tore his ACL on the first day of camp, ending his season well before it began.

While most fantasy owners were able to avoid him unless their drafts happened extremely early, the sting of missing Henry was felt throughout the season, especially in a year where the position was as thin as ever. There were late-season rumors that Henry might be able to get back on the field for the Chargers' playoff run, but it ended up not happening and the tight end will now have spent over a full calendar year preparing to get back on the field by the time the 2019 season kicks off.

That's great news for fantasy owners, and especially for the Chargers, who were sorely missing Henry's contributions as a pass catcher, particularly near the goal line. While Gates was once an elite player at the position, he became mostly a decoy on the field - and a weak one at that - and Rivers is very much used to play-making ability out of his tight end position. Henry's return, presuming he's healthy, should provide a serious injection into this passing game, and one that will almost certainly open things up for the other members of the offense as well. We've never seen Henry play a full season without Gates also on the field, so it's hard to project exactly what type of target share we're going to see out of him, but we do know that Gates and Virgil Green combined for 72 targets at tight end in 2018 - and neither of them was very good. Henry should command at least that type of target total at the bare minimum, which would put him right around the top 10 at the position, but with Rivers likely throwing the ball somewhere around 550 times, there's a real chance that Henry could push the 100 target mark if he's fully healthy and back around the skill set that he had prior to the injury.

Henry is being selected as a borderline top-five player at the tight end position and that's before we have seen him make it all the way through training camp and the preseason without re-injuring his knee. Look for his ADP to continue to rise throughout the off season as long as he does not have any hiccups with his knee, especially if he makes some plays in the preseason. If fantasy owners believe that he's back to being the Hunter Henry of old, there's no reason why he won't be drafted as a top-four player at the position, just like he was heading into 2018.


 Vance McDonald, PIT (Bye: 7)
9
Height: 6’5”   Weight: 260   DOB: 1990-06-13   Age: 29
College: Rice   Draft: 2013 Round 2 (25) 
SeasonTeamGameRec Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2016SF1024 391 4 63.1 6.3
2017PIT914 188 1 24.8 2.8
2018PIT1550 610 4 85.0 5.7
2019 (Projected)PIT 54 647 5 94.7  

Outlook: I could sense last year that this offense was tailor made for McDonald's strength and athleticism. Not only did he emerge as a threat down the seam, his flair for dramatic, punishing runs after the catch fired up this offense. Now more than ever the Steelers offense needs a reliable receiver at tight end. With the departure of Antiono Brown, and with the additional exit of Jessie James, McDonald has a tremendous opportunity. In 2018, McDonald was able to play 15 games, and put up career highs in receptions (50) and yards (610), and I feel like those are his floor if he can stay healthy this season. He finished just outside the top-10 at the position last year and is frankly one of my favorite value picks at tight end in 2019. There are targets to be had in the Pittsburgh offense, and I think Vance is the biggest beneficiary, putting him in my TE1 crosshairs.


 David Njoku, CLE (Bye: 7)
10
Height: 6’4”   Weight: 246   DOB: 1996-07-10   Age: 23
College: Miami   Draft: 2017 Round 1 (29)

2018CLE1656 639 4 87.9 5.5
2019 (Projected)CLE 57 665 5 96.5  

Outlook: One Cleveland receiver I don't see taking a huge step back in production because of OBJ is 3rd year player David Njoku. Njoku built off his solid rookie season by posting a 56-639-4 line last year, finishing in the top-10 standard scoring at the position. Njoku is one of the most athletic tight ends in all of the NFL, and has improved his blocking and route running, meaning he doesn't leave the field often. He finished 5th in the NFL in snaps played by tight ends and his 89 targets where 7th best in the league. He still drops a few too many passes for how strong and athletic he is, but he should remain a big piece of what this offense wants to do. While I don't know that there is much room for his reception or yardgage totals to climb with Beckham in the fold, I do think he can improve his touchdown totals by a few, putting him squarely in line for top-10 production yet again. He's still incredibly young, and has fantastic upside in what COULD be a very potent offense.
