Fantasy Football 2021 Tight End Rankings

It is no surprise that Travis Kelce once again sits atop the tight end rankings. Kelce has ripped off five straight 1,000+ yard season, topping out at 1,416 yards in 2020 while trailing only Stefon Diggs in receiving yards across the league. Kelce is unlikely to make it into the second round in many league and he’s fair game outside the top six in standard scoring formats. The top tier also serves up a couple of more affordable options in George Kittle and Darren Waller and if you are lucky enough to have a pick early in the first round, these guys both make sense in tail end of the second before diving into the wide receiver position.

ADP Targets

Mark Andrews (54.3) regressed a bit with the first half struggles on Lamar Jackson, but still managed 58 catches for 701 yards and seven scores. He remains a focal point in the banged up Ravens receiving corp and is threat to get back to double digit touchdowns… Tyler Higbee (108.4) flashed down the stretch in 2019 and could see a new bump in value with Matthew Stafford taking over at QB… Once Rob Gornkowski (119.2) got his legs under him with the Bucs last year he proved to be a still viable red zone threat… Evan Engram (154.2) has always looked the part despite rarely putting it all together. His discounted draft cost is now worth the risk… Pat Freiermuth (161.5) doesn’t get the hype of fellow rookie Kyle Pitts, but the Steelers rookie was a red zone machine in college and let’s face it, Eric Ebron stinks.
