Fantasy Football 52: Tight Ends
Fantasy's Forgotten Player May Be The Missing Link to Your Next Title
Conventional fantasy wisdom tells you that drafting tight ends is something that should be done in later rounds, after you’ve already selected your important players. If you like losing money to your buddies every year, then you should definitely stick to conventional wisdom.
In today’s NFL an elite tight end is basically a wide receiver. I’d be willing to bet all of the money in my couch right now that whoever won your league last season had a top 5 tight end on their roster. Still not buying it? Fine, ponder this. Last season Colts tight end Dallas Clark scored enough fantasy points (PPR format) to finish the season as the 7th best receiver in league, outscoring guys like Roddy White, Calvin Johnson, Vincent Jackson, and Sidney Rice.
The good news is most people wait to draft a tight end, so you should be able to grab a top tier guy if you act fast. The bad news is the huge drop-off in value outside of the top seven. You don’t want to find yourself on the back end of a tight end picking trend, you want to be the one who starts it.
