Use these player salaries as context for building your Week 1 OwnersBox lineups. There is some great value at the tight end position. With salaries being set weeks in advance they cannot be changed. Injuries and depth chart movement has impacted the value of these players salary significantly.

Tight End Rankings

  • If you want one of the big 3, I’d go with the cheapest of the bunch in Darren Waller. In a full PPR contest, Waller provides even more value as he’s a high volume pick and the focal point of the Raiders offense. In what should be a high scoring game, I expect him to eat Week 1.
  • There’s a big tier of guys in the low 4000’s, but the best of the bunch to me is Robert Tonyan. In his 2nd season with Rodgers, he should have high touchdown upside week to week, making him a nice cheap upside play.
  • The biggest fade in week 1 is Dallas Goedert at $4,700. Despite the easy matchup against the Falcons, Zach Ertz is still there and I don’t trust Goedert will have a reliable target share. As the 7th highest priced tight end, I’ll pass on him.
