Unless you drafted George Kittle, Travis Kelce, Zach Ertz, Eric Ebron or Jared Cook it was a downright depressing year at tight end. What we learned at tight in 2018 could be summed up as “don’t expect to get many points from the position”. Streaming was more difficult than ever, but it was more viable because so many teams ended up in that boat by necessity. Yet another strong tight end class is coming in the draft this year and the NFL continues to move towards a more creative and versatile offensive approach, so better days could be ahead. Before we dive into that, let’s look back at this trainwreck of a season.

The years and surgeries (and TB12 training regimen?) have caught up to Rob Gronkowski

In one of the sadder stories to watch this year, Rob Gronkowski now has the flexibility of the tin man and the turning radius of a lawn tractor. He came out of the gate strong, but immediately faded and slowed and eventually needed some in-season rest to just to stay functional. He had some moments in the playoffs, but none more memorable than his feeble attempt to turn and chase Kenyan Drake at the end of the Miami Miracle. Watching Gronkowski on the field and in our lineups was one long death scene for the most part.
