2018 Draft Tiers -- Standard TEs (Updated)

By Matt Schauf 3:08pm EDT 8/29/18

Since he entered the league in 2010, only LeSean McCoy has scored as many TDs as Rob Gronkowski's 77 -- and McCoy has played 15 more games over that span.

Over Travis Kelce's 4 active years (he spent his rookie season on IR), Gronk has led all TEs by 2.5 fantasy points per game in non-PPR leagues and a little more than 3.0 per game in PPR.

He's in his own tier. But what about everyone else?

You can find the PPR groupings here. Below is where we see the separation in "standard" scoring drafts.

Rob Gronkowski

There's Gronk and then there's everyone else.

Travis Kelce

OK. There's Gronk, then there's Kelce. And then everyone else.

Zach Ertz

Ertz gets his own tier here because that's how our numbers came out. He'll face a challenge for end-zone targets from rookie Dallas Goedert, though, and must navigate the downside risk of Carson Wentz's knee questions.
