2021 Fantasy Football Rankings - Tight Ends (Jan. 11):
Top 10 | 11-20 | 21-45


Other Positions: QB | RB | WR

  1. Travis Kelce, TE, Chiefs. Bye: 0.
    Travis Kelce turns 32 in October, so there's some chance for regression. However, it's more likely that he'll have another huge year. He caught 105 passes for 1,416 yards and 11 touchdowns in 15 games in 2020.

    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 101 catches. 1,340 yards. 10 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 194.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 295.

  2. George Kittle, TE, 49ers. Bye: 0.
    George Kittle had a lost 2020 campaign, as he was limited to eight games, some of which were with a backup quarterback. Kittle should bounce back with a terrific 2021 campaign as long as he has good play at quarterback.

    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 94 catches. 1,240 yards. 8 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 172.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 266.



  3. Darren Waller, TE, Raiders. Bye: 0.
    Darren Waller had a monstrous 2019 season, and he was even better in 2020! His yardage rose from 1,145 to 1,196, but the touchdowns tripled from three to nine. There's no slowing down Waller, who is a top-three player at the position.

    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 103 catches. 1,170 yards. 8 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 165.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 268.

  4. T.J. Hockenson, TE, Lions. Bye: 0.
    T.J. Hockenson made a big leap in 2020, seeing his catches rise from 32 to 67, and his yardage increase from 367 to 723. He'll continue to get better in his third year, as long as Matthew Stafford is healthy.

    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 74 catches. 810 yards. 8 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 129.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 203.



  5. Robert Tonyan, TE, Packers. Bye: 0.
    Robert Tonyan was a touchdown machine in 2020, catching 11 scores from the MVP. Tonyan doesn't have much experience, so he should continue to get better. That said, I would expect the touchdown total to regress to the mean.

    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 68 catches. 770 yards. 8 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 125.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 193.

  6. Logan Thomas, TE, Redskins. Bye: 0.
    It's hard to believe that Logan Thomas was drafted in the middle rounds - as a quarterback! Thomas transitioned to tight end, which didn't show much promise at first. Thomas, however, has developed into a stud tight end. He may reach the top five this year.

    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 77 catches. 810 yards. 7 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 123.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 200.



  7. Mark Andrews, TE, Ravens. Bye: 0.
    Mark Andrews hauled in 58 passes for 701 yards and seven touchdowns in 2020, seeing his scoring total drop from 10. He'll have a chance for double-digit touchdowns again if Baltimore's offensive line improves.

    Projected 2013 Fantasy Stats: 62 catches. 740 yards. 8 total TDs.
    Projected 2013 Fantasy Points: 122.
    Projected 2013 PPR Fantasy Points: 184.

  8. Dallas Goedert, TE, Eagles. Bye: 0.
    Dallas Goedert became Philadelphia's primary tight end last year, and that will continue moving forard. He caught 46 passes for 524 yards and three touchdowns in only 11 games. It's nice that Jalen Hurts seemed to prefer to throw to Goedert more than anyone else.

    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 62 catches. 680 yards. 6 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 114.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 176.



  9. Noah Fant, TE, Broncos. Bye: 0.
    Noah Fant had a strong finish to his second year in which he caught 62 passes for 673 yards and three touchdowns. The scoring must rise for him to be a viable TE1, but that'll be a challenge as long as Drew Lock remains inconsistent.

    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 70 catches. 770 yards. 6 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 113.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 183.

  10. Kyle Pitts, TE, TBA. Bye: 0.
    Kyle Pitts is an extremely talented tight end in the mold of Darren Waller. I'm not usually a fan of drafting rookie fantasy tight ends, but Pitts will be a special case. He's a likely top-10 NFL Draft pick.

    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 50 catches. 620 yards. 6 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 108.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 158.
