Agh Tight End. Every year we enter the off-season with an overwhelming hope that this will be the year of the Tight End. Every year, it's not. This year doesn't feel much different. We have the usual band of characters at the top. Andrews and Kelce are both elite-level players, who should lead their teams in targets in 2022. Kyle Pitts, Dalton Schultz, and Darren Waller all have elite upside, with offensive situations that are a little less clear. Beyond this, it's anyone's best guess.
Tight Ends with upside are plentiful in this draft. My favorite late-round TE target this season is Cole Kmet. Kmet got 93 targets last season and hauled in 60 of them for 607 yards on the season. He shockingly did not find the end zone all year. He will see positive touchdown regression this year and should be a top 2 target on his team. This is the recipe for fantasy success at the Tight End position, and Kmet is in line for a huge workload.
One Tight End to avoid this season is Darren Waller. I know he has name value and has dominated so far in his career. But he just had Davante Adams added to his roster to take away targets, and Waller has missed a majority of the off-season with injury concerns.
