TE Consistency Rankings

Travis Kelce and Rob Gronkowski

In fantasy football, we get fixated on total points at the end of the year. But MOST leagues are head to head on a weekly basis. That makes total points less important than consistent performance. We also want guys who can carry our team with a great week. The following RB consistency rankings aim to give you another tool for deciding between players in your fantasy draft. This is just one of many tools, so check out the rest of our Fantasy Football Draft Kit.

Rationale- The only thing that matters is the last two years worth of fantasy football data. Since injuries do happen during games that can skew weekly results a full game at the TE position for my analysis is 30 snaps taken. This takes into account the variation in formations in the NFL. Percentage rankings for top-20, top-12 and top-5 weeks will be presented along with a statistical rating.

What Have We Learned?

-The numbers support the fantasy football myth on the TE position: after the first few guys, the rest of the field is close in quality

-Gronk is a beast and Kelce earns his second-best TE forecast

-Greg Olsen has many great weeks, but too many bad weeks to justify his ADP at his age

-Jimmy Graham could be a scary red zone target for Rodgers this year

-Trey Burton has shown flashes in a small sample (seven games) to prove he is worth his ADP 100/TE10, because he could be the next Kelce

-Eric Ebron and Cameron Brate are worthy late round picks with great value at their ADPs/TE16

-Tyler Eifert is great when healthy
