With Rob Gronkowski retiring the landscape among the tight end position has changed. Now, Travis Kelce takes the reign as the defacto No. 1 tight end in fantasy football and the Kansas City Chief has been getting drafted toward the end of Round 1 in PPR leagues.
The tight end position continues to develop more depth each year and should have 5-7 legitimate weekly plug-and-play options for fantasy football owners. Case in point, San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle is pressing Kelce for statistically, as is Zach Ertz from the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fantasy owners should look for Hunter Henry, O.J. Howard and Evan Engram to post big seasons as well.
