What is a TE in Fantasy Football?

Tight ends are an important but sometimes overlooked position on fantasy rosters. A great tight end could solidify your team as a championship contender, but it is also possible to survive in the playoffs without one

Drafting and Availability

Tight ends are a very tier oriented position in fantasy. This means that there are a few players who are far and away the best every season, then a group below them, and so on. The top tier tight ends will be taken around the fourth round, but it is still possible to find great value late in the draft. The risk with taking a tight end early is that you could be missing out on a running back or wide receiver who could earn significantly more points.

One of the reasons tight ends are not always desirable commodities is because of the way that NFL teams use them. Many teams utilize blocking ends more than pass-catching ones which have no fantasy value. Other teams feature a two tight end formation which limits the already few receptions even more.

Scoring

Tight ends earn one fantasy point for every 10 receiving yards they accumulate and six points for every touchdown. Tight ends rarely run the ball, so their primary way of gaining points in through the air. Being one of the larger and more physical positions, tight ends are often looked for in the red zone, which makes their touchdown production exceed other positions. They lose two points for every fumble lost.

History

The greatest fantasy season for a tight end was achieved by Rob Gronkowski in 2011. His 90 catches, 1,327 yards, and 17 touchdowns are astronomical numbers for a tight end, and they solidified him in the record books.
