Pre-Camp PPR Tight End Tiers and Strategy

A look at tight end tiers, draft strategy, and what to monitor in camp and the preseason

The offseason plate tectonics have basically come to rest. We can survey the landscape of the NFL and ruminate on it for a month before the washing machine starts up again, but when that happens, we will have information coming at us at a Niagara Falls flow rate, so it’s important to firm up our starting point on player values so we have the proper framework to interpret that tidal wave of new data coming our way. Tight end is different than the other positions for lots of reasons, but most importantly you only start one and hopefully roster no more than two. That makes tiering them a much simpler exercise as we head into the season


Travis Kelce, KC

Kelce’s outlook was dinged a little when the possibility of Tyreek Hill getting a maximum four-game suspension was raised, but any dip in targets can be at least partially offset by more room to operate in the middle of the field. Of course, we want to make sure the ankle he had surgery on this offseason is good in camp and the preseason, but Kelce is head and shoulders above the pack and I would argue worth a first round pick this year.

Strategy Tip: Kelce is worth a first, but often available in the second

Monitor: Tyreek Hill suspension, Kelce ankle recovery
