Ranking the tight ends without Travis Kelce, Darren Waller and George Kittle isn’t as easy as when they are playing, but we’ll give it a go.
None of the remaining tight ends can be considered smash plays, but Mark Andrews has the most touchdown upside of the group and is my No. 1. He hasn’t been consistent, but he can still get in the end zone and is the first read for Lamar Jackson more often than not.
Logan Thomas is almost safer than Andrews, as his target numbers have been great and he’s been taking advantage. I could see going with him as the No. 1 pick of the group, but I still prefer Andrews’ upside.
Rob Gronkowski and Jared Cook come up next in the rankings, but their consistency and lack of truly smash games makes them tougher to rely on. I still like them much more than the rest of the field though.
These rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.
