Bottom Line

We’re more intrigued by Sinnott in dynasty.

He has a young, talented QB to grow alongside. And questions at WR – at least in the short-term – supply an easier path to earning targets.

But if Zach Ertz stays healthy this fall, it’s tough to see Sinnott emerging as a reliable option.

View the rookie as a possible in-season pickup -- and a potential TE1 come 2025.

What We Learned Last Year

  • Sinnott spent four years at Kansas State.
  • He started all 26 games over the past two seasons, tallying 80-1,123-10.
  • In 2023, he posted his best season to date.
    • Among 32 TEs with 40+ targets, he ranked eighth in yards per catch, 20th in catch rate, fifth in yards per route run, and fifth in PFF receiving grade.
  • Last year, he tallied four grabs of 40+ yards.
    • Sinnott’s average depth of target (aDOT) was on the high side for a TE at 10.1 yards.

What to Expect in 2024

  • Sinnott crushed the NFL Combine with a 4.68-second 40 time, a 40-inch vertical, and elite 3-cone and short shuttle marks.
    • He earned a top-end Relative Athletic Score (9.73).
  • The Commanders took him with the 53rd overall pick.
    • He was the second TE drafted, behind only Brock Bowers.
  • He joins a Washington squad set to break in Round 1 QB Jayden Daniels and new OC Kliff Kingsbury.
    • Kingsbury flamed out after four years in Arizona. TEs combined for a ho-hum 15.3% target share during his time with the Cardinals.
  • Washington returns a WR1 in Terry McLaurin. The depth chart brings some questions behind him, though.
    • WR Jahan Dotson took a step back in ‘23.
    • WR Luke McCaffrey arrives as a surprise Round 3 pick.
    • TE Zach Ertz signed a low-cost one-year deal. He might be entering his final NFL season at 34 (in November).
    • RB Austin Ekeler joins the club as a proven pass catcher. But he's now 29.
  • Washington led the NFL in pass attempts last year, but expect that number to decline with Kingsbury and Daniels.

Ben Sinnott, TE WAS

Zach Ertz Impresses; Ben Sinnott Role Uncertain

Ben Standig of The Athletic writes that TE Zach Ertz "showed more speed than expected" in spring practices. He added that second-round rookie TE Ben Sinnott "might ultimately be more H-back or fullback than tight end."

The Commanders selected Kansas State TE Ben Sinnott in Round 2 of the NFL Draft. Sinnott was a no-star recruit and walked on at Kansas State. He totaled just two catches across his first two years on campus but earned a scholarship and significant role as a junior in 2022. Sinnott ranked fourth on that Wildcats team with 447 receiving yards and tied for second with four receiving TDs. 2023 brought new career highs across the board: 49 catches, a team-high 676 yards, and a team-high six scores. Sinnott ranked ninth in both Pro Football Focus receiving grade and yards per route among 81 qualifying TEs. The 6’4, 250-pounder boasts plus ball skills and fluidity in his routes and after the catch. He crushed the Combine with a 4.68-second 40 time, a 40-inch vertical, and elite marks in 3-cone and short shuttle to earn a 9.73 Relative Athletic Score. Sinnott also brings versatility, lining up in-line, in the slot, out wide, and in the backfield at Kansas State. The Commanders currently have Zach Ertz atop the depth chart, but he’s playing on a one-year deal. He also turns 34 next season. If Jayden Daniels hits, Sinnott could develop into a spot-start TE1 before the end of 2025.

Dynasty Write-up
Sinnott, a former walk-on, played all over the formation for Kansas State. Beyond versatility, the 22-year-old moves well at 6’4, 245 pounds and excels as a tackle-breaker. In 2023, his 2.02 yards per route run ranked fifth among 32 TEs with 50+ targets (per PFF). He landed in Round 2 with a Commanders squad that lacks a long-term answer at TE.
