The Huge Tickets

$25 Travis Kelce

$21 Mark Andrews

$18 T.J. Hockenson

$18 Dallas Goedert

$16 George Kittle

$16 Kyle Pitts

Kelce’s fantasy profile is just too good to be true; take into account his finishes over his final seven years: TE1, TE2, TE1, TE1, TE1, TE2, TE1. I suppose there’s a light concern of him coming into an age-34 season, however on condition that he’s tied to Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid — this scheme likes to cook dinner up brief touchdowns for Kelce within the pink space — the ground stays awfully excessive, and the ceiling retains Kelce within the first spherical . . . Andrews graded because the TE5 final yr regardless of lacking two video games (and lacking Lamar Jackson for a number of others). Andrews has a wide-receiver talent set and is able to scoring from wherever on the sector. Baltimore’s offensive scheme is getting a recent coat of paint (new OC Todd Monken) on the proper time . . . Hockenson has a superb setup in Minnesota, the place he’ll at all times be one of many priorities for Kirk Cousins, however defenses shall be primarily nervous about famous person wideout Justin Jefferson. It’s attention-grabbing, although, that Hockenson has by no means scored greater than six instances in any season, and his yards per catch fell from 15.2 with the Lions to eight.7 after the commerce to the Vikings . . .

Goedert has the expertise to be the TE1 sometime, however the Eagles have two famous person receivers pushing for heavy targets as properly, to not point out a bushel of brief touchdowns earmarked for Jalen Hurts and his speeding chops. Nonetheless, Goedert is value chasing if you happen to imagine he hasn’t had his finest season but; the Eagles have a 123.1 ranking once they goal him over the past two years . . . By some means Kyle Pitts has simply three touchdowns in 27 professional video games, which is basically a touch upon head coach Arthur Smith and the strange quarterback play in Atlanta. If you happen to’re anticipating a Yr 3 spike from Pitts, it means you’re a believer in Desmond Ridder, entering into his first full season within the pilot’s chair. Ridder most likely isn’t a kingmaker, however we’re merely asking him to be higher than Marcus Mariota was final yr. That’s an inexpensive request.

Authentic Constructing Blocks

$13 Darren Waller

$11 Evan Engram

$10 Pat Freiermuth

$10 David Njoku

$10 Chigoziem Okonkwo

$9 Greg Dulcich

$8 Cole Kmet

$8 Tyler Higbee

Okonkwo confirmed downfield juice and was an effectivity darling on restricted alternatives final yr. A workload spike is predicted, even with DeAndre Hopkins becoming a member of the wide-receiver room . . . Waller is coming off two injury-wrecked seasons and is now altering groups into his age-31 season. One of the best coaches work expertise to scheme, not the opposite method round, however we even have to think about Brian Daboll offenses have not often prioritized the tight finish . . . Freiermuth had a low landing rely final yr, which was the story with everybody within the Pittsburgh passing recreation. However Kenny Pickett confirmed flashes of being not less than competent on the finish of the yr — with a whiff of upside — and Freiermuth has the kind of bodily profile that ought to result in loads of red-zone alternative . . .

Dulcich impressed when wholesome final yr, and it’s believable that new head coach Sean Payton would possibly have the ability to push Russell Wilson again right into a productive season . . . Kmet’s TE7 end was pushed by landing deodorant, however now he has to cope with a wholesome Darnell Mooney and new acquisition DJ Moore. Kmet may simply add 20 targets to final yr’s complete and nonetheless see his end-of-year rank come down.

Discuss Them Up, Discuss Them Down

$7 Dalton Schultz

$6 Gerald Everett

$5 Juwan Johnson

$4 Dawson Knox

$4 Mike Gesicki

$4 Irv Smith Jr.

$3 Taysom Hill

$3 Hunter Henry

$3 Noah Fant

$3 Dalton Kincaid

Gesicki was a sq. peg in Miami’s round-hole offense final yr, however Invoice O’Brien ought to be a lift for him this time round. And the Patriots want jumbo receiver Gesicki to pop, given the strange vast receiver group they’ve collected . . . Johnson has an inexpensive path to steer the Saints in receiving touchdowns; Chris Olave is the one difference-maker dragging vital targets from the wideouts . . . Schultz doesn’t provide a lot vertical playmaking, and the Houston offense is a serious step down from Dallas; we will’t anticipate C.J. Stroud to take off instantly, and we don’t even know if he’s the opening-day starter . . .

[2023 Salary Cap Rankings Tiers: QB | RB | WR | TE]

Usually we wish to watch rookie tight ends however not draft them for fantasy functions, however the Payments have been glowing of their early reward for Kincaid. Maybe we now have a rule-breaker on our fingers.
