3 Overvalued Tight Ends for 2021 (Potential Busts)

At the tight end position, if there are questions of whether or not a draft target can finish in the top-five at their position, you are probably better off foregoing them until the late rounds. Over the last five seasons, the TE6 in half-PPR points per game was scoring 9.9 points per game. That mark would have landed as the RB34 and/or the WR41 in 2020, giving credence to how we should be targeting other positions if we’re not exceptionally certain about a tight end’s upside.

More Overvalued Players: QB | WR | RB

In the broad scope of things there are two types of tight ends in fantasy drafts; the top tier of Travis Kelce, Darren Waller, or George Kittle and a lower tier of guys we are hoping can score similar points. As such, there are players in that massive tier fighting for fantasy relevance, and I have found three in particular who I believe are overvalued based on their average draft position (ADP). I’ve broken down each of them below and will be avoiding them unless they begin to slide down draft boards.
