Gesicki has upside profile attributes & positive opp trends: 97th percentile athlete, rising 2nd half snap share, top-5 total target distance, top-5 contested catch rate, P. Williams rehabbing torn acl, no receivers drafted, catches his own passes. @Fantasy_MansionAll you have to do is follow the bread crumbs to see that Jonnu Smith is the next big time TE in dynasty. -- @AnOutragedJew

Gesicki showed some flashes last season and is an elite athlete but the Dolphins will return Preston Williams, Jakeem Grant and Albert Wilson from injury so Gesicki will be hard-pressed to even sniff the 89 targets he was given last season. Even if he does, the efficiency just isn't there for him to be a top 12 fantasy tight end.Remember when T.J. Hockenson dominated the NFL combine just two years ago? Well, Jonnu is the same size but faster, stronger, quicker and a better leaper. Not only that, but he breaks tackles like he's George Kittle and Bill Belichick, himself, called Jonnu "one of the best tight ends in football." If you are looking for this year's version of Darren Waller, it is difficult to look beyond this supreme athlete moving into a much larger role in one of the NFL's top offenses. You can grab Jonnu late in your drafts and if it doesn't work out, move over to streaming the position.

 Steadily increased his production over his first 3 years, while sitting behind Delanie Walker. He might not have performed as well as we'd like with Walker having a limited role in 2019 but it was his first year truly starting. Showed enough flashes and is also another hyper athletic TE to target late, on a team that lacks weapons in the passing game aside from AJ Brown. Targeted on 21% of routes run in 2019. ADP of TE17 in redraft. Walker and his 31 TE targets have left the building. 8th in yards per route run among TEs with a minimum of 40 targets. While not on the same level of production as Kittle, was just above him in % of YAC in 2019, 94th percentile burst score allows him to pull away after the catch 9th in YAC with half as much opportunity to produce it as the most of the guys ahead of him, which means he was 2nd in YAC/REC, only behind Noah Fant, and just ahead of George Kittle 7th in % of targets caught. So he is ready to make the most off potentially limited targets, by catching nearly 80% of them, and then has elite YAC ability when he does get it, on a team with underrated QB play, and The TE room finally all to himself?
Dan Harris

 Smith is one of the more intriguing names to be outside of the TE1 range. He is one of the most efficient tight ends in the game, and has a clear road to targets at the position now that Delanie Walker is no longer in his way. The problem is that there aren't all that many targets to go around in Tennessee, and Smith's targets have rarely come around the end zone. If that changes, then he's certainly got a shot at being fantasy-relevant. For now, however, he should be drafted as a TE1 only in 15-team leagues or larger or those that reward bonus points for tight ends.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The good news? Gesicki totaled 89 targets last year, which ranked seventh among tight ends. The bad news? He finished as the No. 11 tight end and now has Chan Gailey as his offensive coordinator. In the eight years Gailey has called an offense, his tight ends have finished 28th or worse in seven of them, with Tony Gonzalez being the only one who succeeded. Gesicki has averaged a measly 6.4 yards per target in the NFL to this point, which is bottom of the barrel, so you can't say that he's the difference maker that Gailey needs to feature. Drafting him as a TE1 is too risky.Many compared Smith to someone like Delanie Walker back when he was drafted in 2017. We saw shades of that and even heard Bill Belichick give him props as one of the top tight ends in the league prior to their playoff matchup. Still, he's going to need more than 3-5 targets per game to get into the TE1 conversation. Despite Walker going down for the year, Smith saw more than five targets just twice all season and finished with 44 on the year. With the offense still projected for less than 500 pass attempts, it'll be difficult for Smith to truly break out. He should be considered a strong streamer in good matchups.
Derek Lofland

Gesicki had 570 yards from scrimmage and 5 touchdowns in his second season. He carved out a major role in the offense and he could build on that, especially if the Dolphins find a solid quarterback in the NFL Draft.
