3 Fantasy Football Draft Targets: Tight Ends

The 2024 NFL Draft has come and gone, and it’s ready to begin preparing for fantasy football drafts. While sometimes afterthoughts, tight ends continue to be an integral part of fantasy football draft strategy. Let’s dive into a few tight ends to target in upcoming fantasy football drafts.

Fantasy Football Tight Ends to Draft

Let’s dive into fantasy football tight ends we’re targeting in drafts.

Mark Andrews (TE – BAL)

With all the love that Trey McBride and Sam LaPorta are receiving after their incredible 2023 season, many fantasy football managers forget that Mark Andrews is Lamar Jackson‘s WR1. Whenever you can get the WR1 to a great offense like Baltimore, who has an MVP under center, you have to do it for your fantasy football team.

Sometimes, when new names emerge, these old solid veterans become the unsexy pick for fantasy. Your team doesn’t need to be sexy; it needs to win. Don’t skip Mark Andrews.

Evan Engram (TE – JAC)

Calvin Ridley has left town. Jacksonville also released Zay Jones. The Jaguars replaced their production with an inconsistent Gabe Davis and rookie Brian Thomas. Trevor Lawrence may lean into his comfort and elevate Engram’s fantasy production. Once again, the name is unsexy when you look at your roster. However, you must draft this player when your tight end can produce 114 receptions, 963 receiving yards, and four games with double-digit receptions.

Engram was TE6 two seasons ago and TE2 last season. We know what we will get, and we will receive fantasy greatness.

Cade Otton (TE – TB)

Cade Otton is the living embodiment of the 1999 movie “She’s All That.” On the surface, you would rather have any other tight end. However, after a deeper look, you see that Otton is the best thing to happen to you. Okay, bad 90 movies aside, Otton is a sneaky late-round pick for your fantasy team.

Baker Mayfield would look for Otton more than we thought this past season, especially in the red zone where only Mike Evans had more touchdowns than Otton in the Tampa Bay offense. Otton faces virtually zero competition, meaning he will see his 90+% snap percentage again in 2024. Otton could be the last pick of your team and offer you low risk but high reward for your fantasy team.
