Welcome to my 2019 fantasy football positional rankings series. This post has been updated slightly as news has changed. You can also check out my QB, RB, WR and K/DST rankings.

Below you'll see my rankings for the top 35 fantasy tight ends. The basis for my rankings are my full-season statistical projections based on 12-team, half-PPR scoring formats with $200 budgets. I've also grouped players into tiers and added auction values​. Check out each player from the studs to the flex players to the depth stashes.

For blurbs on each player, and more information to defend my rankings, check out the full post here.
