Valuing TE in Draft

Postby whitezog » Mon Aug 13, 2018 7:20 am

League changed to add a specific TE position so not sure how to evaluate/compare.
4 keepers (3 strong WRs, 1 RB kept - see signature) with draft upcoming
Through trades my first I have picks: 1.05, 2.01, 2.06, 3.10 ...

Available players are:

RB: Barkley (for sure gone) Howard, McCoy, Penny, Carson, RJones II, Michel, KJohnson, Duke Johnson, Freeman, Coleman, Collins, Hyde, Mack, Thompson, Lynch ...
WR: Cooper, Diggs, Thielen, Landry, Smith-Schuster, Davis, Baldwin, Parker .....
TE: Kelce, Ertz, Olsen, Engrem, Njoku, .....
QB: Almost all except Rodgers available

Was thinking would take best RB with first pick, but wondering if Kelce or Ertz are in different enough tier at TE to pick and get RBs later? Thanks for your thoughts!

I'm also a believer that Kelce (or Gronk) offer a great advantage over all other TEs and would grab Kelce in your shoes. It's possible that Dallas Goedert eats into Zach Ertz's value to increase that gap, and Greg Olsen likely has just one season left in his career. There are also some rookie TEs I'll be investing in with the hope that by the time Gronk retires they'll be stepping up. But for now I'm ride or die with Kelce and/or Gronk.
QBs: Patrick Mahomes, Carson Wentz, Lamar Jackson.
RB: Saquon Barkley, Joe Mixon, James Conner, Derrius Guice, Adrian Peterson, Gus Edwards, Josh Adams, Chase Edmunds, Ito Smith, John Kelly, Jay Ajayi.
WR: Odell Beckham, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Brandin Cooks, T.Y. Hilton, Sammy Watkins, Keke Coutee, Tre'Quan Smith
TE: George Kittle, Austin Hooper, Mike Gesicki, Ian Thomas
(IDPs, start two per week per position):
DL: JJ Watt, Danielle Hunter, Myles Garrett, Chandler Jones
LB: Deion Jones, Roquan Smith, Tremaine Edwards, Lavonte David
DB: Landon Collins, Keanu Neal
