Which Rookie TE Is in a Tough Situation?

Looking at rookie tight ends who are in tough spots to produce

Is there a rookie tight end with great talent but stuck in a bad situation? The bad situation could be anything from a bad coaching staff to being behind an entrenched starter to having subpar surrounding talent.

None of the premier tight ends got "Goederted" this year. Recall Dallas Goedert landed in Philadelphia and now plays second fiddle to Zach Ertz. Goedert would be an offensive focal point on most other teams. Among this rookie crop, the only name that fits this bill -- albeit marginally -- is Noah Fant. Fant is a bit overhyped as a prospect, but he is a talented receiver. Unfortunately, he'll be playing for a Joe Flacco-led Broncos unit.

That's Fant and Hockenson. Rich Scangarello might be a great offensive mind and Mike Munchak can build a great offensive line, but Joe Flacco and Drew Lock are not really the passers you want your fantasy tight end's value to hinge on. Hockenson is on a run first team and his offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell's offense destroyed the fantasy value of Jimmy Graham and Zach Miller in Seattle. Irv Smith's spot isn't great with a run-first offense brewing and two great receivers in their primes.
