Tight End Targets

In this two-part article, we’re going to take a look first at three tight ends that I will be targeting at their current ADP and then in part two, examining three tight ends I’m fading at their ADP. As a quick note, Travis Kelce, Zach Ertz, and George Kittle will not be featured in either article. Those are the consensus top three tight ends for most experts and I want to discuss players that have received a bit less attention. Also, only three teams can grab one of those top-tier tight ends, so everyone else will need to decide on one of these later players. With all that said, let’s jump right into it.ADP is taken from Fantasy Football Calculator’s Half-PPR ADP. Evan Engram (NYG)Evan Engram is a mid-round target at the tight end position for 2019 fantasy drafts. He is currently being drafted as the 61st player off the board as the TE5. While I also have Engram ranked as my TE5, I believe there is still value at his overall draft cost. In points per game, Engram finished as the TE4 in 2017 and then the TE7 in 2018, so a TE5 price seems appropriate. However, he is guaranteed to play a whole season in 2019 without the presence of target hog Odell Beckham Jr. In 2017, Engram received 115 targets when Beckham missed a majority of the season and was the unquestioned number one receiving option during that period. Then in 2018, Engram was having a quiet season until Beckham was out injured for the final four games. In those four contests, Engram topped 75 receiving yards in each game and totaled 22 receptions on 31 targets.
