MOCK DRAFT

TE 2nd Year Players

 

Gathers, Rico - DAL

Gathers, Rico

Gathers has yet to play a regular-season NFL snap, but his dominant play in practice and the preseason has earned him the nickname 'Zeus.' Gathers caught seven of eight targets for 106 yards and a pair of touchdowns in two 2017 preseason games. He's a converted basketball player standing 6-foot-6, 290 pounds. Veteran tight end Jason Witten has retired, leaving Gathers with a path to a breakout season as long as he can fend off Geoff Swaim and rookie Dalton Schultz for snaps. The intriguing 2016 sixth-round pick should be on your radar in the late rounds.


Njoku, David - CLE

Njoku, David

Njoku was one of the most intriguing offensive weapons in the 2016 draft, and Cleveland bought into the hype, scooping him up with the 29th overall pick. The Miami product is 6-foot-4, 246 pounds with terrific speed and athleticism. Njoku was one of the league's youngest players as a rookie but still handled a relatively significant role. He was on the field for 47 percent of Cleveland's snaps and caught 32 of 58 targets for 386 yards and four touchdowns. Njoku's 4.7 OTD was No. 11, and his eight end zone targets were No. 7 at the position. Njoku is only 22 years old, but he's a strong bet for a 2018 breakout, especially with an improved QB situation.


Engram, Evan - NYG

Engram, Evan

Rookie tight ends rarely make noise in fantasy, but Engram's skill set and a barrage of injuries around him on the depth chart led to 64 receptions for 722 yards and six touchdowns last season. Engram's 64 catches is third-most all time for a rookie tight end and the most since Jeremy Shockey caught 74 for the Giants in 2002. Engram ranked in the top seven at the position in routes, targets, receptions, receiving yards, touchdowns, OTD, end zone targets and fantasy points in 15 games. The return of Odell Beckham Jr. and selection of Saquon Barkley could cost Engram some targets, but he's positioned for an every-down role and should only improve in his second season. Engram is a solid TE1.


Kittle, George - SF

Kittle, George

Kittle wasn't selected until the fifth round of the 2017 draft, but the Iowa product played a hefty 568 snaps as a rookie. He wasn't much of a fantasy force but did post a pair of top-seven weeks with Jimmy Garoppolo under center to finish the season. Kittle's drops (five) and dip in usage shouldn't be ignored. He was on the field for 73 percent of the team's pass plays and handled 5.2 targets per game during Weeks 1-6, but logged 46 percent and 3.6 targets in his final nine games. Kittle is the 49ers' top receiving TE, so there's some sleeper appeal here, but he isn't yet in the TE1 discussion.


Howard, OJ - TB

Howard, OJ

Howard's rookie season went about as expected. The first-round pick out of Alabama was on the field for 68 percent of the Bucs' offensive snaps, when healthy, but ran a route on only 41 percent of the team's pass plays and was limited to 38 targets in 13 full games. He showed flashes, but the role held him to a 26-432-6 line and four top-10 fantasy outings. Howard's receiving workload increased late in the season, but Cameron Brate signed a long-term extension and will continue as the team's primary pass-catcher at the position (with Howard the primary blocker). Howard is an intriguing prospect, but he faces an uphill battle to TE1 numbers as long as Brate is in the fold.


Seals-Jones, Ricky - ARI

Seals-Jones, Ricky

Seals-Jones burst onto the scene during the second half of the 2017 season, posting a pair of top-five fantasy outings in Weeks 11 and 12. He failed to post a finish better than 20th from that point forward, but consider that he averaged only 9.8 routes per game. The encouraging news is that his playing time progressively increased during the season. He ended up catching only 12 of 28 targets but averaged 16.8 yards per reception and caught three touchdowns. Seals-Jones is a converted wide receiver with a massive 6-foot-5, 243-pound frame. Especially with Jermaine Gresham recovering from a torn Achilles, Seals-Jones is primed for a bigger role in his second season. He makes for a fine late-round dart throw.
