Let's talk about this year's crop of rookie tight end. Who is your top tight end in a normal fantasy league? In most leagues, is there even one worth drafting? Does your answer change in a dynasty league?
Tight end is a terrible position for rookie success. It's one of the more difficult positions to learn because they often have to be adept at blocking schemes like an offensive lineman, and also a mastery of all the route combinations as a receiver. T.J. Hockenson, arguably the best tight end prospect in five to ten years, struggled last year with Detroit. So what to expect this year? Not much. This was a weak class -- historically so -- for the position. And with COVID-19 likely truncating the preseason and training camp, I don't see any rookie earning enough snaps to help redraft leagues, at least early in the season.
If I had to choose someone, it would be Devin Asiasi in New England. The Patriots seem committed to a wholesale rebuild this year (tanking for Trevor?) and it's well known how fond Belichick is of the tight end position. Asiasi is a competent receiver and has no credible veteran competition for snaps if he can win over the coaches in the preseason.
