Tight End Rankings – 2022 Fantasy Football

The tight end position has historically been one of the biggest battles for fantasy football managers. The elite producers at the position can keep up with the best players in fantasy. The 2021 TE1, Mark Andrews, recorded more fantasy points per game then Tyreek Hill and Stefon Diggs. But the TE12 last season, Pat Freiermuth, was outscored by Robert Woods who played just 9 games. Our 2022 tight end rankings can help you value the position.

There are four to five players that I think have elite upside in 2022. In order to have elite upside you need to have a high floor in volume and high enough quality targets that double digit touchdowns are within your range of outcomes. Dawson Knox, Robert Tonyan, and Hunter Henry are examples of tight ends the last two years that have shown that ability to score but that is too volatile to predict year to year.

We’ll be looking at the top-30 players at the tight end position in 2022 fantasy football. If you like this type of content don’t forget to subscribe to the OwnersBox YouTube channel and check out our quarterback rankings!

Tight End Tiers

I mentioned that there are a few players I see as elite options this season, those would include Kelce, Andrews, Pitts and Kittle. Dalton Schultz is certainly in consideration based on Michael Gallup’s recovery timeline from ACL surgery. Kelce and Andrews represent tier one, while Pitts, Kittle and Schultz fall into the second tier.

TE6, Darren Waller, through TE9, Zach Ertz, represent a capable tier of tight ends that I’d expect to be safe starters week in and week out. The fourth tier is TE10-TE15, fantasy managers that draft any of these guys can feel comfortable to start the season but you’ll want to have bench options available with better matchups should the opportunity arise.

The fifth tier is wide, TE15-TE24, these players are clinging on to one particular trait that could peak the interest of fantasy football drafters. For example Albert Okwuegbunam is going to be the number one tight end for Russell Wilson, but he’s also likely to be the fifth receiving option. If you punt the tight end position until the end of your fantasy football draft then perhaps you should target two tight ends in this tier.
