Kelce led all tight ends in fantasy points last season, but will have a new quarterback and offensive coordinator for 2018. I like Patrick Mahomes quite a bit and think he could help Kelce put up even better numbers, but he's also a wild card. I won't be drafting any tight end early this season, so ADP will help dictate where my priorities lie.Ertz has similar upside to the top two tight ends here, but he also ha more competition for targets. As long as Philadelphia remains a pass-heavy offense, I expect Ertz to be consistent, which is extremely tough for tight ends not named Gronkowski and Olsen in recent years.

I'm taking Kelce over Gronk as well. Not only has he missed just one game in four seasons, but he also has more yards than Gronk in that time. The reason I do not have him first over Ertz is that I am of the party who believes Pat Mahomes is a major step back from Alex Smith. Last season, Smith was among the most efficient passers in the league on both deep balls and short passes. Mahomes has played one game so I'm unwilling to buy into him on the same level as an MVP candidate like Smith, and that means I'll be cautious with his assets as well.You may not believe this, but Ertz has three consecutive seasons with more receptions than Rob Gronkowski. With Trey Burton gone and a full season of Carson Wentz, I have no problem taking Ertz even before Gronk and Kelce this season. He has only missed five games in five seasons. Meanwhile, Gronk has missed at least five games in four of his eight career seasons.

While some will try to make the argument for Kelce over Rob Gronkowski, I won't be one of them, simply because the Chiefs now have an abundance of offensive weapons that are going to need touches. They signed Sammy Watkins for nearly $50 million, which tells you how much they wanted him, and Tyreek Hill has remained as efficient as ever, so it's hard to argue that you should take targets away from him. Ultimately, I still love Kelce as an asset, but he's lost some of the upside he presented in 2017, which still had him finish eight points behind Gronkowski... and he played one more game than Gronkowski did, too. If Ertz can stay on the field for all 16 games, he's could be right there in the tier with Gronk and Kelce, but he's dealt with some nagging injuries the last two seasons that have caused him to miss four games. Still, his consistency is something, as he's not finished with 74-78 catches and 816-853 yards in each of the last three seasons, though he doubled his touchdown output in 2017. It wasn't a bad thing to see Trey Burton leave, but the Eagles immediately replaced him with Dallas Goedert, who is a massive red zone threat. Because of that, I'll keep Ertz in the tier below the alpha dogs, but he's not far behind.

Kelce may take a step back this year if the Chiefs move on from QB Alex Smith, but he is still going to see a ton of targets and he is a great red zone threat. Ertz probably would have finished as the second best fantasy tight end if he had not sat out two games and if QB Carson Wentz had not been injured in Week 14. Ertz is an elite fantasy tight end.
