8 Value Plays at Tight Ends - Footballguys

The Footballguys staff finds value at the tight end position

A fantasy draft is all about obtaining the most value with each selection. There is value available throughout a draft, and grabbing it is one of the most important keys to a successful fantasy team. In an attempt to point out this value, we asked our staff to look through the Top 150 and identify players that should outperform their draft position.

Jordan Reed, Washington

Phil Alexander: It may have taken years, but we're finally getting an injury discount on Jordan Reed. Reed has now appeared in 12 games or fewer in four of his five NFL seasons. No one should have to spell out the risk for you here, but if his off-season toe surgery was a success, the reward is a possible top-3 tight end fantasy finish. Alex Smith is no stranger to playing with talented tight ends, having supported monster seasons from Vernon Davis and Travis Kelce. For his own part, Reed was still able to command targets last year (seven per game) while playing hurt and was coming off a trademark multi-touchdown game before the toe injury ended his season. Taking Reed at or ahead of his current ADP is a move that can pay huge dividends, though you’ll want to draft a contingency plan in the later rounds.
