Mike Tagliere’s Early 2020 Fantasy Football Rankings: Tight Ends

Travis Kelce has been too consistent to select anyone else atop the tight end rankings

The NFL schedule has been released. The draft is over. Most of the top-tier free agents have signed. It’s getting closer to that time of the year we all know and love. Fantasy football draft season. Projections aren’t something that happen overnight. It’s a tedious process where I do everything manually. I already had rankings put together, but once you do projections, you must move certain players.

That process has begun, and it’s shifted plenty of players around. Because of that, I wanted to share some early 2020 fantasy football rankings with you. Today, it’ll be tight ends. Everyone knows how to stream tight ends at this point, right? You don’t grow too attached to your tight end, but rather play the matchups, snagging a new one off the waiver wire every week. Sometimes, you strike gold and don’t need to stream, like Mark Andrews or Darren Waller last year. Here are my rankings to this point.
