2019 Fantasy Football TE Outlooks

Fantasy Football Week 14 TE Rankings - The Best Starters

#1 TE Travis Kelce 2019 Fantasy Outlook

Travis Kelce (Chiefs) 6’5, 260 lbs Travis Kelce is coming off a career year and is this year’s fantasy TE #1. Thanks to a massive 150 targets, Kelce finished the season with 103 receptions for 1336 yards and 10 TDs. Kelce isn’t a one year wonder, as he’s now had 3 straight seasons of going over 1000 yards receiving. He runs great routes and can beat defenders with his speed and separation and catches everything. Mahomes is one of the best young QB’s we’ve ever seen and he’s going to continue to lean on his veteran tight end. The Chiefs like to use Kelce in the red zone and he

Fantasy Football Week 15 TE Rankings

#2 TE George Kittle 2019 Fantasy Outlook

George Kittle (49ers) 6’4, 250 lbs  Kittle absolutely exploded last season and set an NFL record for yardage by a tight end with 1377 yards. He’s a freakish athlete than ran a 4.52 forty at the combine and the timed speed shows. While a 3rd-year breakout is a real thing in fantasy, it’s kind of hard to “break out” coming off a season with a stat line of 88 receptions for 1377 yards and 5 TDs. Kittle had this monster of the season while playing with three different quarterbacks. If Jimmy Garoppolo is the real deal he could dominate again in 2019. The Niners don’t have a stable of proven

TE Zach Ertz 2019 Fantasy Outlook

#3 TE Zach Ertz 2019 Fantasy Outlook

Zach Ertz (Eagles) 6’5, 250 lbs Last season Zach Ertz set the NFL record for targets by a tight end with a massive total of 156. While he is one of the best tight ends in the league, it’s going to be hard to match last year’s stat line of 116 receptions for 1163 yards and 8 TDs. The Eagles brought back Desean Jackson and drafted red zone/ jump-ball specialist J.J. Arcega-Whiteside in the second round of the draft. Philadelphia also has second-year stud tight end Dallas Goedert who is going to soak up his share of targets. When you consider Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor into the equation it’s

TE Evan Engram 2019 Fantasy Outlook

#4 TE Evan Engram 2019 Fantasy Outlook

Evan Engram (Giants) 6’3, 240 lbs After a monster rookie season where he fished as the 5th overall fantasy tight end, Engram had a bad hammy last year and ended up missing 5 games. He put up some nice numbers when he did play and averaged the 7th most fantasy points per game at the position, finishing with a stat line of 45 receptions for 577 yards and 3 TDs. The best thing working for Engram is the departure of ODB. The Giants only have an aging Golden Tate (suspended) and Sterling Shepard to compete with for targets. Engram has been an elite tight end in the games he’s played

TE Hunter Henry 2019 Fantasy Outlook

#5 TE Hunter Henry 2019 Fantasy Outlook

Hunter Henry (Chargers) 6’5, 250 lbs Henry was poised to break out last year but suffered a knee injury before ever playing a game. The former second-round pick out of Arkansas had two solid seasons before going down last year, and he should get back on pace in 2019. As a rookie, Henry had 36 receptions for 478 yards and 8 TDs. In his second year, he saw an uptick in receptions (45) and yardage (579) but saw his TDs dip to 4. Now playing in his 4th season, Henry should keep the progression in receptions and yardage while also playing a big role in the red zone. Rivers is

TE O J Howard 2019 Fantasy Outlook

#6 TE O J Howard 2019 Fantasy Outlook

O J Howard (Buccaneers) 6’6, 251 lbs O J Howard is one of the best tight ends in the NFL. His efficiency is record-breaking as his 11.5 yards-per-target are the best ever for a tight end. Last year in only 10 games, Howard racked up 34 receptions for 565 yards and 5 TDs. While Howard is an undeniable talent, there are a couple of nocks on his fantasy outlooks. Head coach Bruce Arians have never really featured the tight end but he’s never had one this talented. There is also tight end Cameron Brate who eats up looks, especially in the red zone. Howard is still too good to pass

TE Jared Cook 2019 Fantasy Outlook

#7 TE Jared Cook 2019 Fantasy Outlook

Jared Cook (Saints) 6’5, 254 lbs Cook had a career year last season in Oakland. He became the de facto number one option in the passing game en route to career highs across the board finishing with 68 receptions for 896 yards and 6 TDs. While a player doesn’t usually have a career year at the age of 32, Cook should have a shot at similar numbers in this Saints offense. Coach Sean Payton and quarterback Drew Brees have both talked him up during training camp, and he isn’t facing serious competition for targets. While Cook has never been considered a huge threat in the red zone, we all remember

TE Vance McDonald 2019 Fantasy Outlook

#8 TE Vance McDonald 2019 Fantasy Outlook

Vance McDonald (Steelers) 6’4, 267 lbs Vance McDonald had a heck of season while splitting time with Jesse James. James joined the Lions this offseason, and when you combine the targets also vacated by Antonio Brown, the Steelers have over 200 targets up for grabs. While McDonald finished with 50 receptions for 610 yards and 4 TDs, he should have even more opportunity in 2019. McDonald had one of the best highlights last season when he manhandled Chris Conte with a stiff arm and rumbled down the sideline for a 75 yard TD. The dude plays like a bully, and at a solid 267 pounds, he’s an angry runner. He’s

David Njoku 2019 Fantasy Outlook

#9 TE David Njoku 2019 Fantasy Outlook

David Njoku (Browns) 6’4, 246 lbs Njoku had a nice season in his second year as a pro. Still only 23 years old, the former first-round pick is ultra-talented and he’s still learning the position. Last year he finished with a stat line of 56 receptions for 639 yards and 4 TDs. The Browns have added OBJ to a receiving core that already had target hog, Jarvis Landry. But Njoku is a big part of this passing offense and the team will draw him up some plays. Tight end is a position that can take some time, and a third-year leap is in the cards for a player this good.

Fantasy Football TE Rankings Week 10

#10 TE Austin Hooper 2019 Fantasy Outlook

Austin Hooper (Falcons) 6’4, 254 lbs Hooper had his ups and downs but had a pretty good season when you look at his numbers. While you would like more consistency, he finished with 71 receptions for 660 yards and 4 TDs. That was good for the 6th best overall tight end, and his numbers should be getting better. Hooper’s yardage totals have gone up every year for his first 3 seasons in the league. He went from 271 as a rookie, to 526 as a sophomore, then had the 660 last year. I like the way that projection is looking and his numbers should go up across the board. The

Delanie Walker 2019 Fantasy Outlook

#11 TE Delanie Walker 2019 Fantasy Outlook

Delanie Walker (Titans) 6’2, 248 lbs Delanie Walker might be 35 years old, but he’s a sneaky pick as a backend tight end one. He’s healthy again and had two catches for 26 yards and TD in the second pre-season game. Walker has the easiest schedule for tight ends in 2019 and staying healthy is all that stands in the way of another solid season. Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota has struggled, but when he’s been on, he’s feeding the ball to Walker. The two have chemistry and Mariota has shown trust in the veteran. There is competition in the passing game with youngsters Corey Davis and A.J. Brown out wide

TE Eric Ebron 2019 Fantasy Outlook

#12 TE Eric Ebron 2019 Fantasy Outlook

Eric Ebron (Colts) 6’4, 253 lbs Eric Ebron had an absolute monster season, but he’s my TE 12 and I have him that late thinking somebody else will draft him. With Jack Doyle back in the fold, this looks like a timeshare at the position, and Ebron was losing that battle last year. Last season he filled the stat sheet with 66 receptions for 750 yards and a crazy 13 TDs, but he won’t touch those numbers this year. When both Doyle and Ebron were healthy and playing together, Ebron was out snapped and out produced in those games. When Doyle went down with an injury, Ebron exploded. To make

TE Trey Burton 2019 Fantasy Outlook

#13 TE Trey Burton 2019 Fantasy Outlook

Trey Burton (Bears) 6’3, 235 lbs After playing behind Zack Ertz in Philly, Burton was a first-time starter last season and had a pretty solid year. While he didn’t finish as strong as he started and got a little banged up, he finished the year with 54 receptions for 569 yards and 6 TDs. Burton is not much of a blocker, and at his size, he’s really a glorified receiver. But blocking doesn’t help you in fantasy and Burton’s game is all about receiving. With Mitchell Trubisky expected to take another step in the right direction, and playing in Matt Nagey’s system for the second year, his numbers should see

Fantasy Football Week 12 TE Rankings

#14 TE Mark Andrews 2019 Fantasy Outlook

Mark Andrews (Ravens) 6’4, 256 lbs Mark Andrews was just a rookie last year but he didn’t play like it. Usually, tight end is a position that takes a couple of seasons before a player is ready to produce, but Andrews finished with a stat line of 34 receptions for 553 yards and 3 TDs. Baltimore’s passing game is a work in progress, but some short passes over the middle should still be there. The Ravens do have a former first-round pick in Hayden Hurst, but he’s just been outplayed by the Oklahoma Alum. Players usually get better in their second year and I’m seeing an uptick in yardage and

TE Jordan Reed 2019 Fantasy Outlook

#15 TE Jordan Reed 2019 Fantasy Outlook

Jordan Reed (Redskins) 6’2, 245 lbs Jordan Reed is one hell of a player when he’s healthy and on the field, but that’s the problem. He’s just never been able to avoid the injuries and has never played in all 16 games. Despite being credited with only 8 starts last year, Reed led the Redskins in receiving with 54 receptions for 558 yards and 2 TDs. Reed could be the de facto number one receiving option for the Redskins this year. This is a team without a ton of mouths to feed and they might be playing from behind early in games. Reed has shown he can be a number
