DFS Roundtable: Tight End Mindset

The DFS team discusses the mindset for the tight end position for Week 1

With a wide spread for tight end salaries, much like last year, and the position at full strength to begin the season, do you recommend paying for a stud in Week 1 or mining value for lower salaries? Pick and choose to comment on possible options below:

Week 1 pricing is always pretty loose, which is understandable since the prices come out so far in advance. Value is easy to come by at other positions, so it feels like a week to take the sure things at tight end. It is easy to put together a strong roster while keeping enough money in the reserve to pay up for Travis Kelce. Both in terms of floor and ceiling, Kelce is so far ahead of the pack at the position that I am trying to fit him in wherever I can.

Hunter Henry also projects very well and comes with a bargain-basement price, especially on DraftKings ($3,900). It feels unnecessary to reach for lesser options just to save a few dollars when Henry is so cheap. Plus, there are enough other strong options, his ownership isn’t going to be through the roof either.
