DraftHustle 2020 Draft Manifesto: Tight Ends
Fantasy draft are starting to ramp up as we get closer to the start of the 2020 NFL season. Having done 50+ bestball drafts so far this season, I believe I have a pretty good idea on how I plan on drafting in my season long leagues, as well as what the good and bad values are for all of your favorite players. Over the next few days, I will be giving my overall strategy and other bits of advice on drafting the 4 Primary Fantasy Football positions in 2020. For more tools to help you during your draft, including, rankings, tiers, and Depth charts, be sure to check the Draft Hustle Season-long One Stop Shop here.
TEs are a lot similar to QBs in terms of 202o drafts. The top 2 guys, Travis Kelce and George Kittle are in their own tier, and should be drafted as such. I am fine Kelce early in round 2, and Kittle late in round 2. Mark Andrews and Zach Ertz are the next 2 consensus TEs and I would take either of them in the 5th round. After those 2, there is a big group of 5 TEs, ranging from Darren Waller to Tyler Higbee who all have the upside to finish top 5. Historically, this group of TEs hasn’t faired well (Looking at you, O.J. Howard) and I prefer to avoid them all together.
I am more of a TE streaming guy, so the next group of TEs are my favorite to choose from. That group in my rankings, which can be found here, ranges from Blake Jarwin (TE10) to Ian Thomas (TE19). I love taking two of the guys in that group and playing the matchups. My favorite pairing is Blake Jarwin’s upside and Jack Doyle’s steady target floor. For those of you looking for a deep sleeper, keep an eye on Logan Thomas of the Washington Football Team. He is a former QB who has converted to TE who is athletic and has been getting plenty of buzz.
