Fantasy Football 2019: TE Rankings and Tiers

My sister says this plugin is clever!!

2019 Tight End Tiers
Everyone knows that tight ends are the thinnest position in fantasy football. Like I did with quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers, I took a look at all the tight ends with fantasy relevance and placed them into tiers.
Tier 1
Superstars
If drafting a tight end early is your thing, these are the three that are worth your consideration.
Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs—Kelce is so good that he needs to be looked at more like a wide receiver than a tight end. He plays on the best offense with the best quarterback in the NFL, which increases his draft stock greatly.  
George Kittle, San Francisco 49ers—I find it hard to imagine that Kittle can repeat last year’s success, but he is the number one weapon on an offense that lacks a true WR1.

Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles—Gone are the days when fantasy owners worry about Ertz’s next injury. He’s shown himself to have a great ability to get open and he is clearly Carson Wentz’s favorite target.
Tier 2
Next best if the Superstars are gone
The superstars are most likely going to be drafted in Rounds 1-3. These are the guys who you can get in Rounds 5-7 after you build up your arsenal of running backs and wide receivers.
O.J. Howard, Tampa Bay Bucs—He’s in an offense that is going to throw the ball a ton, and he seems like he is improving with each passing year. Howard is the one player from this tier who could ascend to the top tier in the future.

Evan Engram, New York Giants—The Giants have always run a tight-end-friendly offense, which helps Engram considerably. With Golden Tate out the first four weeks of the season, he might get even more volume.
Hunter Henry, Los Angeles Chargers—Both Philip Rivers and fantasy owners alike missed Henry for most of last season. I expect him to flourish in 2019 and think that 70-plus receptions is a distinct possibility. 
Jared Cook, New Orleans Saints—QB Drew Brees lacks a true WR2, so it might be that Cook will be able to step in and be a complement to Michael Thomas. Cook has looked disinterested at times in the past, but this could be his finest season yet.
Tier 3
