FANTASY FOOTBALL FEEDING FRENZY: 2017 Tight Ends Preview (Recap)
We’re nearing the end of August. This week teams across the National Football League will hold all their all-important “dress rehearsal” third preseason game. And there are just two big fantasy draft weekends to go before the 2017 NFL season opens at Gillette Stadium.
There will be thousands of fantasy drafts this weekend, and drafters far and wide are looking for every edge they can get. The Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy has already previewed the quarterback position. And the running backs. And the wide receivers.
That means this week it’s time to tackle the most unpredictable position in all of fantasy – the tight ends.
The tight ends, as they have been for several years, are headlined by Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots, the oft-injured man-monster who the is the personification of the risk-reward fantasy pick. Gronkowski has a ceiling no other tight end can match, but how early is too early considering his injury risk?
Speaking of injury risk, what about Jordan Reed, he of the injured foot? Reed’s falling in drafts to what could be a position of value, but is he a bargain in the waiting or fool’s gold?
Which tight ends are undervalued in 2017 and should be targeted of draft day? Which ones are overvalued busts waiting to happen.
And will I ever stop asking questions?
Join the Feeding Frenzy gang for everything you need to know about tight ends leading up to your fantasy draft.
Come on in – the water’s FINE.
