Fantasy Football: 5 End-of-Draft Tight Ends With Huge Touchdown Potential
Once we get to the end of a fantasy football draft, you know there aren't any safe tight ends left. You're dealing with a whole lotta muck, and these puppies are operating without the benefit of a floor. That means we're allowed to roll the dice a bit.
If we've waited this long on the position, we want to find upside, even if it means taking a guy who carries a boatload of risk. Such players have cropped up in the past with Jordan Reed, Gary Barnidge, and Benjamin Watson all being top-10 scorers at tight end last year despite going late or even coming off of waivers in re-draft leagues. Who has a chance to join those ranks this year?
Let's run through five tight ends with big-time touchdown potential who you can target near the end of your drafts. We'll limit eligibility to players going as the 13th-ranked tight end or later in PPR drafts, according to Fantasy Football Calculator.
All of these guys are parts of potentially high-powered offenses. If any of them take advantage of their opportunities, they could make major differences for their fantasy owners in 2016.
