2021 Rankings Breakdown: Tight Ends

When devising my annual draft plan, I like to tackle the quarterback and tight end positions first, since they are usually “onesie” positions (i.e. positions where owners can only start one in any given week) and owners will typically treat them differently than running back and receiver.

I’ve found that ADP for these onesie positions tends to be more consistent throughout the offseason, so if I’m drafting a tight end in the ninth round in May, I’m usually able to get him in the eighth or ninth round in August. This allows me to hone my draft plan throughout the summer, starting with best ball drafts in May and June and transitioning into redraft drafts by August. The value picks at running back and receiver will vary throughout the summer as players rise and fall.
