Dynasty Tight End Rankings

Tight End Rankings
Tight End    Reason
Rob Gronkowski Still head and shoulders above the rest of the league
Travis Kelce Steady at #2
Zach Ertz Still holding the typical #3 spot, but most likely to fall of the top three due to Goedert
David Njoku Has all the physical and mental tools needed to succeed. If Cleveland emerges, he could lead.
Hunter Henry A lost year but still only 23.
Evan Engram Volume questions persist after rookie year bolstered by being only healthy body in town.
Kyle Rudolph Red Zone TD hog.
Jordan Reed If not for the injury concerns, he would be #3 on this list
Tyler Eifert Same story as Reed, if healthy he is much more valuable.
OJ Howard Targets is a near-term concern, coaching turn-over a long term question.
George Kittle Small sample size, but could very well be a red zone star.
Trey Burton An offseason darling who has run up based on a handful of games and optimistic speculation. Show me.
Jimmy Graham Injuries have made him a shadow of his former self. Rodgers could propel him higher.
Ricky Seals-Jones Hot finish on a team in desperate need on offensive targets. Could make a serious leap.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins New team, new role. Wait and see approach.
Austin Hooper A now or never year for Hooper. All the talent needed, none of the production.

Dynasty WR ranks

I’m skeptical of rookies until proven otherwise. And given the track record of rookie WRs its reasonable to think they will be available at more reasonable prices in years two and three.

Here’s how I’m valuing them now, or how I think they’ll be valued come year end.

Dynasty WR Ranks
Wide Receiver Reason
DeAndre Hopkins He doesn’t catch the ball. He attacks it. He owns it. A beast with a QB on the rise
Keenan Allen PPR beast, technician, not going anywhere for a very long time.
Odell Beckham Big market noisy and likely to face a QB transition give me pause.
Antonio Brown He’s Antonio Brown
Julio Jones A beast off a bad year. He’s got production and trade value to spare.
AJ Green Forever tied to Julio, though anchored by a QB, coach and organization.
Stefon Diggs He might be Antonio Brown 2.0
Doug Baldwin Just like the next guy except his Drew Brees is considerably younger.
Michael Thomas Brees sunset coming. Questions about what he is in aftermath.
Brandin Cooks New teams, new playbooks: no problem. 24 years old with three 1,000 yards seasons. Yes please.
Corey Davis QB and rookie season questions loom, but I remain a believer this staff makes it work.
Sammy Watkins Home at last. Great potential fit. It’s now or never for this once highly regarded talent.
Davante Adams Prove it year. If he does he jumps 5+ spots. Otherwise a rookie is making big leaps.
Tyreek Hill Strange player with hug opportunity to modernize the no helmet tackle era.
Josh Gordon One time stud with a giant hiatus. All the tools and now possibly the brain to match.
Mike Evans Yes, way down here. Big body era gone by? Question marks at QB and coach? I prefer certainty.
T.Y. Hilton If Luck is right, he climbs but Tommy John is no joke.
Juju Smith Schuster Surprisingly mature, surprisingly young, excellent teal with a track record at WR development.
Amari Cooper Yes, way down here. If he cares he’ll be good to great. He hasn’t cared yet.
Jarvis Landry A boring track record that can’t be argued with. Cleveland is as good or better than Miami, no?
Kenny Golloday Potential beast with an under-loved QB who will have Rivers/Roethlisberger love in a year.
Golden Tate A new era WR that arrived too early. Still more yards to come.
Kenny Stills Under the radar #1 in Miami and not going away any time soon. Also 26.
Chris Godwin He’s 22, Evans is likely overrated and TB is in transition. I think his contract sees the other side.
Tyler Lockett Now or never season for this one time high upside 25 year old.
Cameron Meredith Nice recipe for fantasy jolt playing with Brees. 25 years old.
Sterling Shepard Meredith without the Brees bump. ODB counterweight.
Allen Robinson Once loved, loved again but many questions to be answered.
Keelan Cole Most of his yards in 17 came from play action. Fournette should provide more opportunity.
Nelson Agholor Wentz still needs another #1. Maybe Jeffrey?
