As we roll along this offseason, we are laying the groundwork for early best ball drafts, new dynasty startups, and everything else under the fantasy sun as we gear up for the next NFL season.

My full 2024 fantasy football rankings are already available as part of the Sharp Fantasy Football Draft Kit, but we also wanted to add some notes to those rankings for each position.

These rankings will move and be updated throughout the offseason as the landscape changes.

While these rankings will only have a short blurb for each player, there will be more in-detail player writeups coming with the full tiers later in June after our 2024 NFL Preview book drops.

This list will be based on full-PPR settings, but check out the full rankings to see how the deck gets shuffled under other scoring settings that do not weigh receptions as heavily.

Fantasy TE Rankings 2024:

  1. Sam LaPorta, Lions
  2. Travis Kelce, Chiefs
  3. Mark Andrews, Ravens
  4. Trey McBride, Cardinals
  5. Kyle Pitts, Falcons

2024 Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings:

1. Sam LaPorta: Was fourth among all tight ends in receptions, fifth in yards, and first in touchdowns as a rookie. No rookie tight end in the 2000s had a higher target rate per route (23.8%). Younger than the next couple of players at the position. Detroit is also soft at WR2, and he plays only three games outdoors all season.

2. Travis Kelce: Still a stud as seen in the postseason. Was the TE1 in points per game in PPR formats (14.6) and matched LaPorta’s 11.5 points per game in 0.5-PPR formats despite a down season marred by injuries. Is also going to be 35 in October and has played a lower rate of snaps than the season prior five seasons in a row.

3. Mark Andrews: Was third among all tight ends in yards per route run (1.96) and ranked ninth in target rate per route (22.0%) when on the field last season. Has been a top-five tight end in points per game in each of his past five seasons.

4. Trey McBride: Was second among all tight ends in receptions (69) and third in receiving yards (684) with three touchdowns over the final 11 games of the season. Led the position in team target share (25.9%) over that period while ranking second in target rate per route run (27.2%).

5. Kyle Pitts: Healthy and playing with a real quarterback in a new offense under Zac Robinson. No more excuses based on injury, an archaic offense, or quarterback attachment. Still will not even turn 24 until October.
