While not every tight end is a red zone threat, there are some good pass catchers at the position. Delanie Walker had 74 receptions on 111 targets last year and remains a undervalued tight end in PPR leagues. The same can be said about George Kittle. The youngster had 43 receptions on 63 targets a year ago and could flirt with 70-plus receptions in the 49ers uptempo offense.
