Overvalued fantasy TEs
Julius Thomas and four others are being taken too high in drafts so far
It is generally thought that the only tight ends fantasy football owners think about taking too early are Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski. In reality, there are multiple tight ends who are being taken too high in the average fantasy draft.
This fourth in a four-part series aims to help fantasy owners by identifying players who are overvalued, which in this case covers the five tight ends who fall into this category. These players are being taken earlier in drafts -- as determined by ESPN.com's average draft position (ADP) -- than they should be based on my analysis. They range from players who have posted double-digit touchdowns in past seasons to former TE1 veterans whose past glories may be causing some sentimentality.
Here are my five most overvalued fantasy tight ends:
Current ESPN live draft ADP: 35.6
Current ESPN live draft positional rank: No. 2
The Football Scientist (TFS) positional rank: No. 4
