This week we’re talking TEs going into Week 1 as well overall strategy for drafting TEs. While you need a TE on your team there are few issues to take into consideration when drafting. First is that few TEs consistently score a lot of fantasy pts. Only six TEs averaged double digits points last year and one was Tyler Eifert who is out for 4-6 weeks. The #1 TE, Rob Gronkowski only average just over 13 pts. (according to ESPN). The second issue is the relatively high cost of a TE compared to other positions. Let’s break down two players. First is Zach Ertz, the #1 value TE pick at Daily Fantasy Guys. He costs $4,300 at DraftKings and has a cost-per-projected-point of $310. If he were a RB with that cost and projected points he would rank #14 in value, and if he were a WR he would rank #13. So the top value TE doesn’t even crack the Top 10 in value in any other position. Second player to look at is Gronkowski, the undisputed best TE in the league. He has a cost of $7,400 for Week 1 on DraftKings. At Daily Fantasy Guys that puts his cost-per-projected-point at $653. If he were a RB with that cost and projected points he would rank #48 for value, and if he were a WR he would rank #71. So if he was any other player you wouldn’t even consider him. In this case if you were to put Gronk on your team you would pretty much be giving your team the death sentence. You would be better off saving your money to use on a better RB and/or WR. As BigDog points out in the video, you can go down as low as the $2k range for TEs that will still get you points, saving you lots of extra cash to spend on other positions. If you are looking for a good TE without completely breaking the bank, here are our top picks. Keep in mind that our recommendation is not to start by drafting these players and then filling your roster, but to do just the opposite. Pick your other positions and if you have enough to draft any of the below players, you can do so. Otherwise pick a low cost player and focuses on other positions.
