Tight ends are often a dilemma for poolers. With the exception of a few players, it is rare to see an athlete playing in this position selected in the first four speaking rounds.
These exceptionals are: Travis Kelce (Kansas City Chiefs), Kyle Pitts (Atlanta Flasks) and Mark Andrews (Baltimore Ravens).
Starting in the fifth round, a fan of « fantasy » football who sets his sights on George Kittle (San Francisco 49ers), Darren Waller (Las Vegas Raiders), Dalton Schultz (Dallas Cowboys), Zach Ertz (Cardinals of Arizona), Dawson Knox (Buffalo Bills), TJ Hockenson (Detroit Lions) or Dallas Goedert (Philadelphia Eagles) will not be disappointed.
Hunter Henry (New England Patriots), Pat Freiermuth (Pittsburgh Steelers) and Noah Fant (Seattle Seahawks) are good options later in your auction.
Two players to avoid
Finally, it will be necessary to avoid selecting Mike Gesicki (Miami Dolphins) too early, he who should receive fewer assists in 2022. Evan Engram (Jacksonville Jaguars) is also to be avoided due to his past history and the fact that the head coach Doug Pederson tends to distribute the ball to more than one tight end.
When it comes to defenses, units from the Buffalo Bills, Dallas Cowboys, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos, and New England Patriots have the odds.
The defenses of the Atlanta Falcons, Houston Texans, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Jets, New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks are to be avoided.
