2020 Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings

The 2020 NFL Draft is over, giving us a clearer picture of rosters for the 2020 season. With that fantasy football rankings can be released. Here are the 2020 fantasy football tight end rankings. (Note: These are best used for standard-scoring leagues and will be updated until the season starts)

1-10

1. George Kittle, San Francisco 49ers

Kittle averaged 9.8 points per game last season, which tied for first last season. He missed two games due to injury, but will be the main weapon for Jimmy Garoppolo again this season. In standard scoring leagues, Kittle should be the first tight end selected.

2. Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs

Fantasy owners that can get Kelce or Kittle will be extremely happy. Kelce was the top-ranked tight end last season and should be able to finish near the same spot with the Chiefs’ offense not looking like they are going to slow down.

3. Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens

Andrews was the second-ranked fantasy tight end last season and the Ravens traded away Hayden Hurst. With Lamar Jackson likely to improve as a passer, Andrews should be one of the best tight ends for fantasy again.

4. Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles

Ertz ranked fourth last year after only playing 15 games last season. Carson Wentz still locks onto Ertz more than he should, so even though Dallas Goedert is producing, Ertz will still be a top-tier tight end.

5. Darren Waller, Las Vegas Raiders

Last season, Waller had a breakout year where he ranked fourth for tight ends. The Raiders added a lot of wide receivers in the 2020 NFL Draft, so Waller may take a small step back, but overall is a good fantasy option at tight end.

6. Hunter Henry, Los Angeles Chargers

When Henry stays healthy, he is one of the best tight ends in the game. This year, he won’t just need to stay healthy, but he’ll also need to adjust to a new quarterback. His talent should help him rank highly, despite the question marks for the quarterbacks on his roster.

7. Evan Engram, New York Giants

With Daniel Jones‘ likely improvement, Engram should also improve. He averaged 8.2 fantasy points per game, but only played in eight games. With a full season, Engram is a top 10 tight end.

8. Jared Cook, New Orleans Saints

After ranking sixth for fantasy tight ends in 14 games last season, Cook will likely drop a bit in these rankings this year because Emmanuel Sanders and Adam Trautman were added and will take snaps and targets away from Cook.

9. Austin Hooper, Cleveland Browns

Hooper decided to join the Browns in free agency this year, even though they already have David Njoku on the roster. He likely won’t be a top tight end, but Hooper is talented enough to be a top 10 tight end if the Browns’ offense improves even a little bit this season.

10. Tyler Higbee, Los Angeles Rams

He played in 15 games last season and Higbee ranked ninth for fantasy tight ends. Now that Brandin Cooks is in Houston, Higbee could see a higher share of the targets for the Rams.

11-20

11. Noah Fant, Denver Broncos

Fant was the 16th-ranked tight end last season and it looked like he had a rapport with Drew Lock over the last few games of the season. Heading into 2020, Fant should be expected to move up the list of viable tight end options.

12. Dallas Goedert, Philadelphia Eagles

Although he is the second tight-end on his own team, Goedert still produces more than most teams’ top tight ends. Goedert ranked 10th last year in just 15 games and should finish in about the same range.

13. Mike Gesicki, Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins were trying to tank last season, but Gesicki played well and ranked 11th in fantasy points for tight ends. The Dolphins won’t have too many different faces in the receiving core so Gesicki will need to step up this year again.

14. T.J. Hockenson, Detroit Lions

Hockenson ranked 32nd last year in 12 games. This season he will also hopefully have Matthew Stafford healthy for the full season to really help him jump up in the rankings this year.

15. Eric Ebron, Pittsburgh Steelers

After reviving his career with Indianapolis two seasons ago, Ebron had a down year with the change at quarterback for the Colts. Now he joins Ben Roethlisberger, as he comes back from injury, who should be able to help get him to his 2018 form.

16. Rob Gronkowski, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

He retired, but decided to join Tom Brady in Tampa Bay. Gronkowski will not be playing all the snaps he used to and will split time with Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard, but should be Brady’s favorite target in the red zone.

17. Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings

Rudolph had a down year last season, but still ranked 14th among tight ends. Irv Smith Jr. took some targets away from the tight end position, but with Stefon Diggs now in Buffalo, Rudolph still should get a decent amount of targets.

18. Hayden Hurst, Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons lost Austin Hooper in free agency and they traded for Hurst to fill the void. Hurst hasn’t been a great tight end yet, as he split time in Baltimore, but if he is featured with the Falcons, he could produce big time.

19. Jonnu Smith, Tennessee Titans

Smith ranked 17th last season and provided a solid target for the Titans as they were on fire down the stretch. He should finish around the same rank this season.

20. Jack Doyle, Indianapolis Colts

While he played all 16 games last year, Doyle ranked just 18th for fantasy tight ends last year. Ebron going to Pittsburgh helps, but he could also take a step back with a new quarterback under center this season.
