Quarterback, running back, and wide receiver have been amorphous landscapes over the years, forcing us to look at the position as a whole to create a backdrop for our player evaluations and strategy. Tight end hasn’t been as mercurial. The blueprint is that the names change, but you can count the difference makers on one hand and the reliable every-week options on two hands. This despite an ever-growing list of tight ends with potential as the league appears to put a premium on the position in the draft. 2018 isn’t going to sharply diverge with the pattern, but better weekly analysis has made streaming more viable and decreasing (depending on your league’s waiver wire and your skill/luck at picking the right tight end each week) the penalty for waiting at the position.

- Rob Gronkowski, NE
Reserve your second-round pick for Gronkowski. With Julian Edelman suspended and coming back from an ACL tear and Brandin Cooks gone, he should dominate targets. No one has figured out how to stop him yet, and injuries haven’t been an issue three out of the last four years. He’s worth a first-round pick in every format.
