2018 Fantasy Football TE Tiers and Breakdown
The tight end position gets real shallow, real quick. I’m comfortable starting my Top 7-10 TEs, but after that, I’m likely to draft more than one and play the matchup game week in and week out. Most Fantasy pundits don’t like to draft more than one TE. They prefer to use those precious bench spots on running backs and wide receivers. This could force Fantasy owners to draft a TE earlier than they would want to. In a perfect world, I would prefer to wait for a TE until at least the eighth round. Yes, that means I won’t have a shot at a Gronk, Ertz, or Kelce, but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make. I will be paying attention to TEs though after the fifth round. If all of the Tier 3 TEs are flying off the board, I may have to select a TE earlier than I had planned. Each draft is a different animal and adjustments need to be made. I also don’t want to be on the wrong end of a TE run. This position seemed to be a deep one just a few years ago, but now it is certainly top heavy. Proceed with caution here.
