The tight end market took a bit of a dive last year. Production was down despite there being more quality athletes at the tight end position than ever before. Alas, injuries at the position are a constant threat and many of the top TEs don’t end up finishing the season from year to year. If you’ve missed it, make sure you check out our projections for QBs, WRs and RBs too! When it comes to veteran production, I like to look at their last three years and project out there next three for comparison. I also look at age and DMX score to round out my thinking. Below are my projections and ranking for the top 25 dynasty veteran tight ends. These projections take into account standard fantasy production and projects out three years.
