Tight end is a very interesting position in fantasy football, and one that invokes plenty of discussion and controversy.
Some leagues bump up reception points for tight ends to help them compensate for their lack of production, while other leagues are phasing the position out altogether, lumping it in the with flex position and not forcing owners to hold any tight ends if they choose not to.
But rarely will a league ask an owner to start more than one tight end, which means it's a very replaceable position over the course of a season. There are 32 starting tight ends in the NFL, with a handful of backups who will be fantasy relevant this season. But an average league will only feature 12 to 20 tight ends on rosters at any time.
