We are now less than one week away from NFL kickoff! One more draft weekend remains as we cruise towards the start of the season.
With that in mind, we here at Rotoworld want to provide you with the tools that will allow you to dominate your impending draft. Our 2020 Rotoworld Fantasy Football Draft Guide, part of the Rotoworld Premium EDGE+ Roto package, has what you need and we're offering glimpses at the features available — from projections, rankings, a start/sit tool and trade analyzer to exclusive expert columns and our new League Sync feature.
A far cry from last year's tight end desert, this year's TE class offers numerous options for you to consider after you've built the core of your roster.
Check it out:
Tier 3 Tight Ends:
Evan Engram was dominating target share to start the 2019 season and is one of the league's most-talented TEs. Nevertheless, he's been the subject of trade rumors and hasn't been able to consistently stay healthy. Overall, Engram has played in 15, 11 and eight games since entering the league, suffering two concussions, a bruised rib, multiple sprained knees, two hamstring injuries and an IR-worthy foot injury along the way. The ceiling if he stays healthy is huge. Only Travis Kelce (77), George Kittle (65), Rob Gronkowski (65), Zach Ertz (64) and Darren Waller (61) have averaged more receiving yards per game than Engram (52) among all TEs since 2017. His average of 7.7 targets per game with Daniel Jones under center in 2019 was just below Golden Tate (8.4) and Sterling Shepard (8.3).
Darren Waller should be the undisputed go-to TE in this offense. Then again, this roster is currently carrying Jason Witten, Foster Moreau, Derek Carrier, Nick O'Leary and something named Paul Butler. Perhaps Jon Gruden isn't happy with Waller's blocking ability, receiving excellence be damned. Derek Carr has enabled fantasy's PPR TE3 and TE5 over the past two seasons, but the Witten signing has a real possibility of messing all that up. The decision to draft Henry Ruggs, Lynn Bowden and Bryan Edwards in the top three rounds indicates the Raiders might not be too fond of Waller working as the offense’s long-term No. 1 pass-game option.
Tyler Higbee signed a four-year, $29 million contract extension in 2019. At first this didn't change the Rams’ usual practice of rotating him with Gerald Everett, who was always believed to be the superior receiving option at the position. Then December happened. Overall, Higbee posted 7-107-1, 7-116-0, 12-111-0, 9-104-0 and 8-84-1 receiving lines to end the season, averaging a robust 11.2 targets per game along the way. Everett was dealing with injuries at the time, but the absence of Brandin Cooks moving forward makes it more likely that we’ll see Higbee continue to occupy a full-time role, assuming the Rams lean less on three-WR sets.
