In half PPR, here are the top 5 TE’s by scoring average:
- Travis Kelce: 17.61
- Mark Andrews: 13.67
- Taysom Hill: 12.09
- T.J. Hockenson: 10.50
- Greg Dulcich: 9.75
The dropoff happens quickly and is very heavy. At QB, that size of a dropoff goes down to QB6. At WR, it goes down to WR10. At RB, it goes down to RB14.
One could make the argument that Kelce is the MVP in fantasy. However, considering the draft capital you’d have to spend to get him, is he really worth it?
You can’t compare these TEs on average. Dulcich played 2 games, Hill had 1 big game and Hockenson took advantage of Lions injuries. No way they are #3, 4 and 5.
Hill has had 3 finishes of TE4 or better this year, whereas Andrews has had 4 and Kelce has had 6. I’d say Hill is ranked exactly where he should be, especially in a particularly bad year of TE play.
Hopefully this kind of data will keep people from spending early picks on TEs in the future.
Sorry it took something like this to motivate change, all you Pitts/Kittle/Waller owners, but no child ever really knows what it means for the stove to be “hot” until they touch it.
Now you know.
If ya take out the one big game his average is just over 5 points. He is a below average TE.
Kyle Pitts versus Taysom Hill.
Pitts has had finishes of 2.9, 2.9, 11.2, 3.0, 0.0, 9.4, and 2.4.
Hill has had finishes of 14.8, 1.4, 0.0, 8.1, 34.0, 4.5, and 9.6.
Even Hill’s second best week is better than anything Pitts has produced all season.
On a side note, Hill’s second best week is better than anything your Zach Ertz has done all year.
So, he does not suck as bad as Pitts who does not belong on a roster and had 2 weeks of 7 better than my backup TE. Yeah $85 was quite a bargain.
Plus he has higher upside than Ertz.
