Top Fantasy Football Tight Ends 2019

Fantasy football tight ends have been all the rage the past few seasons. Yet, over the past two seasons, only a handful have been good enough to finish among the top twenty receivers. So, don’t over extend yourself on drafting a tight end too early. Last season, you did well to draft George Kittle or Eric Ebron in the latter rounds of fantasy football drafts, or just pick them up off the waiver wire.


As most fantasy football leagues are twelve-team leagues, we’ll focus on the top sixteen tight ends, then rank the next best sixteen. In most ten and twelve team leagues, you won’t need to draft a second tight end. Keep that bench spot for an extra running back or wide receiver. Short of an injury, you can pick up a tight end for your bye week off waivers.


The ranking below is for non-PPR fantasy football leagues. For PPR leagues, the ranking is pretty much the same.


1. Travis Kelce                      Chiefs

2. Zach Ertz                           Eagles

3. George Kittle                     49ers

4. Evan Engram                   Giants

5. O.J. Howard                      Buccaneers

6. Hunter Henry                   Chargers

7. Jordan Cook                     Saints

8. Eric Ebron                         Colts

9. Delanie Walker                Titans

10. Jordan Reed                  Redskins

11. Vance McDonald          Steelers

12. Mark Andrews                Ravens

13. Darren Waller                 Raiders

14. Austin Hooper                Falcons

15. David Njoku                    Browns

16. Jimmy Graham               Packers


And, the best of the rest . . .


17. Greg Olsen                     Panthers

18. Trey Burton                     Bears

19. Kyle Rudolph                 Vikings

20. T.J. Hockenson (R)       Lions

21. Jack Doyle                      Colts

22. Noah Fant (R)                Broncos

23. Tyler Eifert                      Bengals

24. Dallas Goedert               Eagles

25. Chris Herndon               Jets

26. Will Dissly                       Seahawks

27. Ricky Seals-Jones        Cardinals

28. Dawson Knox (R)          Bills

29. Mike Gesicki                   Dolphins
