2018 Fantasy Football Rankings - Tight Ends (July 17):
Top 10 | 11-20 | 21-45


  1. Rob Gronkowski, TE, Patriots. Bye: 11.
    Rob Gronkowski has emulated parts of Tom Brady's diet, and it paid off for him, as he missed just two games this past season. Gronkowski had a big year as a result, catching 69 passes for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns. Expect similar production in 2018, as Gronkowski has apparently called off all retirement talk.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 75 catches. 1,080 yards. 10 total TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points: 168.
    Projected 2018 PPR Fantasy Points: 243.

  2. Zach Ertz, TE, Eagles. Bye: 9.
    Zach Ertz finished the 2016 campaign on a strong note, and he parlayed that into an incredible 2017 campaign. Ertz logged 74 catches for 824 yards and eight touchdowns despite missing two games. He has great chemistry with Carson Wentz, and he should continue to be one of the top tight ends in football as long as Wentz is healthy.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 80 catches. 880 yards. 9 total TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points: 142.
    Projected 2018 PPR Fantasy Points: 222.





  3. Travis Kelce, TE, Chiefs. Bye: 12.
    Travis Kelce makes bone-headed plays from time to time, and he drops lots of passes, but he's extremely talented. He's a perennial top-five fantasy tight end, and it was nice to see his touchdown total rise in 2017 (8, up from 4). Patrick Mahomes has replaced Alex Smith, but there's no reason for Kelce's numbers to decline.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 82 catches. 1,050 yards. 6 total TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points: 141.
    Projected 2018 PPR Fantasy Points: 223.

  4. Evan Engram, TE, Giants. Bye: 9.
    Evan Engram had a great rookie campaign, catching 64 passes for 722 yards and six touchdowns. He was targeted heavily with Odell Beckham Jr. injured, but his great talent will allow him to continue to be a huge part of the offense with Beckham healthy again.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 73 catches. 850 yards. 7 total TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points: 127.
    Projected 2018 PPR Fantasy Points: 190.



  5. Greg Olsen, TE, Panthers. Bye: 4.
    Greg Olsen missed most of the 2017 regular season, as he caught just 17 passes. However, he showed that he still has it, logging eight receptions for 107 yards and a touchdown in a playoff loss to the Saints. Olsen turns 33 this offseason, but he should still be a viable fantasy option for the next couple of years.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 68 catches. 900 yards. 6 total TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points: 126.
    Projected 2018 PPR Fantasy Points: 194.

  6. Jimmy Graham, TE, Packers. Bye: 7.
    Jimmy Graham caught 10 touchdowns in 2017, but didn't look like the same player. He had 57 catches for only 520 yards, so perhaps the torn patellar tendon, as well as age (32 in November) are affecting his play. Graham is likely to be overdrafted, especially now that he's paired with Aaron Rodgers.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 61 catches. 650 yards. 8 total TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points: 113.
    Projected 2018 PPR Fantasy Points: 174.



  7. Kyle Rudolph, TE, Vikings. Bye: 9.
    Kyle Rudolph's receptions and yards have dropped from 83 to 57 and 840 to 532, respectively. However, he scored eight touchdowns in 2017, and he's been in the end zone 15 times in the past two years. Rudolph should continue to be a middling TE1, even with the quarterback change.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 67 catches. 700 yards. 7 total TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points: 112.
    Projected 2018 PPR Fantasy Points: 179.

  8. George Kittle, TE, 49ers. Bye: 11.
    If it wasn't for Evan Engram, we'd all be talking about George Kittle's impressive rookie year. Kittle caught 43 passes for 515 yards and two touchdowns this past season. Kittle showed great chemistry with Jimmy Garoppolo, and he seems poised for a strong 2018 campaign.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 64 catches. 760 yards. 6 total TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points: 112.
    Projected 2018 PPR Fantasy Points: 176.



  9. Delanie Walker, TE, Titans. Bye: 8.
    Delanie Walker has been terrific for the Titans the past four seasons, but he turns 34 in August and may regress. He could still catch half-a-dozen touchdowns if Marcus Mariota rebounds, however. Walker had 74 catches for 807 yards in 2017.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 64 catches. 750 yards. 6 total TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points: 111.
    Projected 2018 PPR Fantasy Points: 175.

  10. Jordan Reed, TE, Redskins. Bye: 4.
    Jordan Reed seemed to be mostly over his injuries in 2015 and 2016 when he missed just six combined games. However, 2017 was a lost season for him, as he took the field in just six contests. Reed has high upside, but can't really be trusted.

    Projected 2018 Fantasy Stats: 62 catches. 670 yards. 6 total TDs.
    Projected 2018 Fantasy Points: 109.
    Projected 2018 PPR Fantasy Points: 171.
