76% catch rate
8.9 yds/target
8.1 aDOT
7% target share...but most importantly, Witten's 14% went unfilled.

Will Jarwin get the whole 21%? No, of course not. Will his efficiency marks carry forward? It's possible, but probably not. But let's give him a 15% share and round everything above down about 10%, seems conservative enough.

Assuming 550 passes: 83 targets/58 rec/660 yards/5 TD. That's TE8 last year and TE6 the year before. And that's conservative. If he sustains his efficiency rates and gets a 17% target share: 94 targets/71 rec/832 yards/5 TD. Which puts him within positive TD variance, or another 600 pass season like 2019, away from a top 5 TE.

On one hand, I'm now torn between him and Hurst. But on the other, even if I can't figure out which one is the better risk - just draft the other after the first one goes (Jarwin ADP 183). And on the third hand because I'm a mutant assessing the tight end landscape in June before a season that won't happen, there's still more in that pile of double digit round tight ends to analyze.

With so many athletic TE prospects getting opportunities, there might be a few more breakouts out of left field than usual.

I personally think the sophomore TE's are all quality dart throws: Kahale Warring, Dawson Knox, Jace Sternberger will have the opportunity to be the 2nd option in their offense with quality athleticism. Josh Oliver is just as athletic, but is likely behind Eifert in jax... but it's unlikely he stays healthy. The reason they're not getting much hype? 3 of them went on IR their rookie year so they're massive unknowns.

Some zig when others zag. I zug.

^^^That is why I am (sorta) open minded to drafting 2 TE's. One to start in September and another you hope becomes your starter by October. Guys like Warring, Knox, and Berger, and at least a half dozen others could make a leap this year, but I can't imagine a set of circumstances in which you're comfortable starting any of them week 1.

Thing is, there's just so many of them. So would your last bench spots be better used elsewhere then if one of these guys does break out early chase them on WW or FAAB. My starting point is to chase with FAAB, but not with WW - then tweak based on the leeg. Far from set on that though.

So glad I dumped Hurst in a dynasty after getting tired of waiting for him...

he was on the hotseat in my dynasty and i'm in a 2TE league. I'm deep at TE with Ertz, Henry, Hurst, Cook, Irv Smith,
