Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
It's hard to go wrong with either Kelce or Kittle in your draft. Kelce's tied to a more dynamic offense, but Kittle could see regression to the means in terms of his touchdown production. The past two seasons, Kittle has finished with over 1,000 receiving yards, but never finished with more than 5 receiving TDs either year. There's reason to be optimistic that that number should come up towards the league average, which would make Kittle a steal where he's currently going in drafts. If you don't want to play the late-round TE guessing game, Kittle's an extremely safe option.Ertz is unlikely to see the 135 targets that were thrown his way last year again in 2020, but he should get off to a great start for fantasy football. Alshon Jeffery has no timetable for his return, which creates a path again for Ertz to be the number one target in this offense right away. While he does have Dallas Goedert breathing down his neck, Ertz should be a solid option again at TE for you this season to begin the year. If Alshon does eventually come back, you'll be able to adjust at that point.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
George Kittle ran 213 fewer pass routes than Travis Kelce last season and 205 fewer than Zach Ertz. That usage edge is why Kelce>Kittle, but one of these years Kittle is going to find the end zone. @LordReebs 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Played TE T. Kelce even in FAN PPG (12.9) in 2019 despite battling thru knee/ankle injuries - in prime age 26/27 season, he's in line to soon be NFL's top paid TE 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's just 26 years old and coming off 2,430 yards and 10 touchdowns over the previous two seasons despite missing two full games. Keep in mind that he was playing through injuries much of last season. The defense is surely going to take a slight step back in 2020, which will lead to more pass attempts, which will lead to more targets. The 49ers added Brandon Aiyuk who'll help stretch the field, which should in turn just open things a bit more for Kittle. His arrow continues to point up. The touchdowns may not match those of Travis Kelce, but we know not to rely on consistency in that department.After posting TE1-type numbers in 78.6 percent of his games in 2017, Ertz has slowly started to regress. In 2018, that mark went down to 68.8 percent, and then just 53.3 percent in 2019. The emergence of Dallas Goedert has surely lowered his consistency, as well as his ceiling. Not only that, but the Eagles added tons of wide receiver talent in this year's draft, which will only make targets harder to come by. Ertz should still be considered a top-five tight end by everyone, but he's not someone to consider in the top four rounds.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Kittle may not have been the #1 fantasy tight end last season but let's not forget that he missed some time and played through a broken leg. Even still, he scored as many fantasy points per game as Kelce. Kittle is also still coming into his prime and Kelce is over 30 so he should surpass Kelce as the #1 tight end in fantasy this year and makes for a solid mid-second round pick.Ertz has been solid for a handful of years now, but he has never been a top two fantasy tight end, if you can believe it. In fact, last season he led the Eagles entire team by 50 targets and managed to finish just #5 among fantasy tight ends. With Goedert continuing to emerge plus the addition of Reagor and the returns of Alshon/DeSean Jackson, the 29-year-old Ertz should take a further step back.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Kittle was the All-Pro tight end over Kelce, but that was due to his ability as a blocker. Gittle is a great fantasy tight end with 1,075 and 5 receiving touchdowns, but he is just a step below Kelce.Ertz loses a little fantasy value with the emergence of TE Dallas Goedert, but Ertz still had 916 yards from scrimmage and 6 touchdowns last year.
