MOCK DRAFT

TE 2nd Year Players

 

Telfer, Randall - CLE

Telfer, Randall

Unless Randall Telfer finds a roster spot and meaningful playing time with the Browns this fall, he won't be a priority for Fantasy owners. 


Swoope, Erik - IND

Swoope, Erik

Swoope appears to have taken hold of second-string tight end duties after the Colts didn't select a player at the position during the 2017 NFL Draft, Stephen Holder of IndyStar.com reports. Jack Doyle is expected to open the season as the team's top tight end after the Colts sent Dwayne Allen to the Patriots in a trade back in March. That allows Swoope to push for the No. 2 role behind Doyle, despite pulling in just 15 receptions for 297 yards and a touchdown during the 2016 campaign. With the Colts not electing to draft a tight end and instead bringing in a few undrafted free agents, it appears they feel confident with what they have in Swoope, which should allow him to take on a bigger role in the offense moving forward.


O'Leary, Nick - BUF

O

O'Leary could see some action as a possible second TE this year, but he's not worth owning in fantasy leagues.


Koyack, Ben - JAC

Koyack, Ben

Ben Koyack should make the Jaguars roster, but unless he completely outdoes himself in training camp he won't play much. Because he won't put up many stats from week to week it's a safe bet to keep him off of your Fantasy roster.  


Henry, Hunter - LAC

Henry, Hunter

Hunter Henry had an exceptional rookie season in 2016, and we expect him to build on that performance this season. He is expected to be the No. 1 tight end for the Chargers, ahead of veteran Antonio Gates, but Gates being back with the team does lower Henry's Fantasy value, even slightly. Still, Henry was the No. 11 Fantasy tight end in 2016 with 36 catches for 478 yards and eight touchdowns on 54 targets, and he had nine games with at least seven Fantasy points in a standard league. We expect him to be more involved with his catches and yards, and he should continue to be relevant in the red zone, even with Gates back in the mix. Henry is worth drafting with a mid-round pick in all leagues as a potential fantasy TE1, and he should have the chance for a breakout campaign in his sophomore year this season.


Morgan II, David - MIN

Morgan II, David

David Morgan will compete for the No. 2 tight end role in training camp with the Vikings this summer. Morgan is known for his blocking rather than his receiving, so Fantasy owners shouldn't race to the draft board to call out Mr. Morgan's name. 


Hooper, Austin - ATL

Hooper, Austin

Austin Hooper didn't do much as a rookie, but what he did do should help him get a shot at becoming a quality Fantasy tight end in 2017. Hooper caught 70.4 percent of his targets and scored in two of three games with at least five targets. Provided the Falcons tight end corps thins out this offseason, Hooper should assume a starting role and pick up much more work than before. As a group, Falcons tight ends collected 83 targets and 10 touchdowns last season -- hopefully those numbers rise and tilt in Hooper's favor. You could justify spending a final-round pick on him, especially if you're dedicated to streaming tight ends off waivers and like Hooper's Week 1 match-up. 


Higbee, Tyler - LAR

Higbee, Tyler

Tyler Higbee has the chance to be a solid Fantasy option in 2017, and he's a deep sleeper tight end to target with a late-round pick in all formats. Higbee had a quiet rookie campaign in 2016 with just 11 catches for 85 yards and one touchdown on 28 targets, but new coach Sean McVay has a great history with tight ends as an offensive coordinator in Washington. He obviously had a standout option with the Redskins in Jordan Reed, but Higbee has the potential to be a star in a Rams offense in dire need of playmakers to emerge. Though the trade for Watkins and Woods signing has helped their situation. McVay is excited about working with Higbee this year, and Fantasy owners should keep an eye on him in the preseason and training camp. He's got plenty of potential and will come at a cheap price in daily leagues and be on the waiver wire in re-draft leagues.


Vannett, Nick - SEA

Vannett, Nick

Vannett is not going to see much action and targets as long as Jimmy Graham is healthy. Luke Willson is expected to be available as the Seahawks #2 TE, meaning Vannett is not fantasy worthy.
