The Composite Re-draft TE Rankings


I suppose the impact of my annual draft strategy of waiting on all positions is that you should be able to get enough bargains that you can afford to spend on guaranteed studs if you can identify them.

And yet I can’t ever seem to talk myself into spending on guaranteed TE studs. Part of the reason is that I’ve never done it and I feel like it’s only hurt me in limited circumstances (like if Jimmy Graham was on the board and I took Trent Richardson last year). But part of it is also that I don’t really remember any of my leaguemates beating me over the head with an early TE strategy either. So it kind of goes in the pile of strategies where I’m sure some people make it work – there are lots of strategies like that – but I never have.

And I don’t know if it’s irrational or not, I would have to check, but I feel like great TE seasons have more potential than other positions to be derailed by injury. The same is true of RB as well, but the reason you draft RB early is because you can’t count on them, not because you can… or that’s the theory anyway.

Without further ado, I give you our initial TE re-draft rankings.

The rankers are: FD = Fantasy Douche, DM = Davis Mattek, MF = Matthew Freedman, SS = Shawn Siegele, SS2 = Scott Smith,JK = Jim Kloet, BF = Bryan Fontaine, AM = Aaron Messing, JB = Justin Bailey,  CR = the Composite Ranking.

One additional note – I am probably wildly overoptimistic on Levine Toilolo. My initial thought was that the ATL offense has 119 targets to replace. Some of those will no doubt be replaced by Julio Jones and Roddy White. I’m leaving Toilolo where I have him for now but will be investigating that situation further.

*Note that like most coverage on RotoViz, these rankings are implicitly PPR as that is the format that the writers play and also is the most common in online money contests.
