2020 Fantasy Football Rankings: TE

Tight ends seldom make headings in the offseason. The relocations that impact fantasy TE rankings are normally under-the-radar compared to other complimentary firm news. Philip Rivers signing with the Colts is constantly going to be much larger news that Hayden Hurst getting traded to the Falcons, however when it comes to fantasy football, the latter relocation is simply as essential. With Hurst ending up being an immediate sleeper, there’s a great chance he’ll in fact be beginning for fantasy teams in Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season while Rivers will be on fantasy benches.

Hurst was the most significant riser from our first set of offseason TE rankings, as he basically changed Austin Hooper, who dropped a couple of areas after signing with Cleveland. Hooper has actually shown to be a capable TE, however his QB, offense, and competition for targets all simply got devalued. On the opposite end of the spectrum, you have Tennessee’s Jonnu Smith (excellent bye, Delanie Walker), Indy’s Jack Doyle (excellent bye, Eric Ebron), and Pittsburgh’s Eric Ebron (hi, Ben Roethlisberger). All remain in far better positions than they were for the majority of last season, and all must see big bumps in targets. You can likewise add Carolina’s Ian Thomas to that list after Greg Olsen left for Seattle.

Simply as essential is all the quarterback motion. Doyle gets a QB in Philip Rivers who has actually constantly liked tossing to TEs while with the Chargers; O.J. Howard remains in a comparable area with Tom Brady now in Tampa, however Bruce Arians’s offense has actually never ever used the tight end much, so it’s uncertain just how much that truly matters. Thomas likewise gets a brand-new, more effective QB in Carolina with Teddy Bridgewater.

Possibly the most significant “loser” of the offseason up until now is Jared Prepare in New Orleans. The addition of another extremely capable possession receiver, Emmanuel Sanders, figures to consume into his target overall. Provided all the favorable changes for the players pointed out above and Prepare’s currently irregular nature, we moved him down numerous areas. On the flip side of that, Kyle Rudolph goes up after the loss of Stefon Diggs, however sophomore Irv Smith Jr. might consume into his target overall, so it is difficult to get too fired up about Rudolph.

There are numerous other possible sleepers who might get momentum this offseason (Blake Jarwin, C.J. Uzomah, Tyler Eifert), however with TE looking as packed as it’s remained in years, those players can’t split the top 25– in the meantime. There will be a lot of changes as we get closer to training school, so examine back for the current updates.
