TRUTH Scoring

Finalizing, fantasy scores and consistency percentages are based mostly on a minimum of 6 games that have started and Zero.5 PPR scoring.

Massive games are over 15 factors (prime Average three)
Good games are over 9 factors (average 10)

Bust Games are lower than 7 factors (common 16)

1. Travis Kelce – Consistency Rank # 1

103/1336/10 of 150 objectives
Great 53% | Good 73% | Bust 7%
Defenses: -1.52 vs. Prime 16 Cross DEF
10 Weeks vs Prime 16 (14.75) / 6 Weeks vs Bot 16 (16.27)
House (12.49) / Street (18.15) Cut up: (-5.66) at house

Kelce had every little thing you might ask in the early spherical of TE. This was his third consecutive season with 1,000+ meters. He’s simply one other TE who will obtain this position in NFL history along with Greg Olsen (2014-2016). Kelce has been ranked top-2 in each of his last three seasons (2016: # 1, 2017: # 2, 2018: # 1) If you wish to see him as a pure traveler, he would have been WR9. Kelce was in such a dominant place that there was a difference of 83.5 factors between # 1 & # 5 TE. He’s in all probability the second round in 2019.

2. Zach Ertz – Consistency Rank # three

116/1163/Eight 156 gadgets
Great 38% | Good 69% | Bust 25%
Defenses: (+3,39) vs. Prime 16 Cross DEF
Eight Weeks vs. Prime 16 (15,59) / Eight Weeks vs. Bot 16 (12.2)
Residence (18.91) ) / Street (8.88) Cut up: (+10.03) at house

Ertz was the target machine (156!), Who was the sixth most correct participant of the Philadelphia crime accidents. Ertz had eight or more objectives in 12 out of 16 games, which was an unimaginable signal of consistency. Crime goes via him. Eagles is dedicated to Carson Wentz, Ertz's greatest pal, a fantastic signal of this fantasy practice. He will in all probability be created behind Kelce in the third round of 2019, which is a small discount that Jason is ready to tackle the draft.

3. George Kittle – Consistency Rank # 2

88/1377/5 136 of the target group
Great 31% | Good 69% | Bust 19%
Defenses: (+3,27) vs. Prime 16 Cross DEF
Eight Weeks vs Prime 16 (14.93) / 8 Weeks vs. Bot 16 (11.66)
House (13.99) / Street (12.6) Cut up: (+1.39) at residence

Whoa doctor! Mr. Kittles-N-Bits was a fantasy motion principally free, because many (including Andy $ 44) blew him out of the lead and rode him all yr spherical. I used to be pretty pumped round Kittle's offseason writing. George Kittle is doing Prime 10 know-how… But I had no concept he might send the top-15 all-time fantasy season to TE and set a document for most TE-receiving shipyards in history. He's a post-ship machine! Kittle was suitable with solely 5 video games that have been lower than 10 fantasy factors, the least of all TEs this season. Though the state of affairs in San Francisco might change (taking a look at Antonio Brown), Kittle seems like an elite TE in the coming years.

4. Eric Ebron – Consistency Rank # 5

66/750/13 110 objectives
Nice 25% | Good 69% | Bust 31%
Defenses: (-1.66) vs. Prime 16 Cross DEF
Eight Weeks vs Prime 16 (11.97) / 7 Weeks vs. Bot 16 (13.63)
Residence (11.63) / Street (13.72) Cut up: (-2.09) at residence

Numerous Jason Moore and everyone who has been waiting for Ebron to wait for the league to go away, he lastly obtained! Ebron made at the very least one TD out of 10 out of 16 video games popping out of the yr's restoration and comeback player Andrew Luck. He had some great chess games, however his division with Jack Doyle shouldn't be for anyone. 6 enjoying with Doyle Ebron had a mean of three.67 objectives, 3 catches, 38 meters and 1.2 TD. It helps Colts use the 2nd most 2TE collection (just behind Baltimore) in the league. His pricing needs to be monitored, but his case needs to be thought-about a permanent TE principally in the trailer trash.

5. Jared Prepare dinner – Consistency Rank # Eight

68/896/6 101 Objectives
Nice 31% | Good 44% | Chest 50%
Defenses: (+Four.95) vs. Prime 16 Cross DEF
Eight Weeks vs Prime 16 (12.45) / 8 Weeks vs. Bot 16 (7.5)
House (13.96) / street (5.99) Cut up: (+7.97) at residence

Don't be too enthusiastic concerning the end of this season's standing line. Prepare dinner had Four 100 shipyard games and career advancements in all courses all over the place. However the 50% chest peak exhibits what sort of TE he’s. Prepare dinner has been recognized to start out a yr of robust and sluggish disintegration virtually yearly. He’s a free agent, so Raiders have to be separated from him. John Gruden is a fan who remembers… But Prepare dinner should not be sketched after a two-digit spherical. Give another person entry to him by the top of the 2018 season

6. Austin Hooper – Consistency Rank # 14

71/660/Four of 88
Nice 13% | Good 38% | Chest 63%
Defenses: (+Zero.43) vs. Prime 16 Cross DEF
7 Weeks vs Prime 16 (8.09) / 9 Weeks vs. Bot 16 (7.66)
Residence (7.76) / Street (7.92) Cut up: (-0.16) at residence

Austin Hooper might never need to come to the present when Andy principally described his personal dying quite than Falcons Te. Hooper seized 71 of the 88 targets for 80.7% of the catch, the fourth greatest in the historical past of TE at 45 +. But he additionally ranked 23rd in yards with a shipyard of 9.3. Hooper did not put together more than two good video games collectively and Travis Kelce had virtually twice as many fantasy factors as Hooper. He's effective because the later round picks up, however in all probability ends up giving up.

7. Trey Burton – Consistency Rank # 11

54/569/6 of 77 objectives
Great 13% | Good 38% | Chest 50%
Defenses: (-0.93) vs. Prime 16 Move DEF
8 Weeks vs Prime 16 (7.04) / 8 Weeks vs. Bot 16 (7.97)
Residence (9.three) / Street (5.71) ) Cut up: (+3.59) at house

Ballers mentioned that no one ever lost a nickname in the historical past of the show. Trey Boo-Boo was principally expelled and changed with Trey Poo-Poon after a yr of unfortunate fantasy. He had 13 games of 40 meters or less, regardless that that they had a strong Bears crime. He can definitely enhance these figures, but the ship might have sailed from a bounce that surpassed his season's signature and his position in this Matt Nagy's crime.

8. Kyle Rudolph – Consistency Rank # 20

64/634/Four of 82 objectives
Nice 6% | Good 25% | Chest 63%
Defenses: (-1.7) vs. Prime 16 Move DEF
8 Weeks vs Prime 16 (6.61) / 8 Weeks vs. Bot 16 (Eight.31)
Residence (6.73) / Street (Eight.2) Cut up: (-1.47) at residence

You need to ignore Kyle Rudolph's end-of-season placement utterly. He was not useful after week Four till week 16 was in an explosion that pushed him to the top-10. Using his pink zone was much totally different when Kirk Cousins ​​behind the center and seeing Chemistry Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. The "dropping reindeer" is firmly "blaa" in the country of TE

9. David Njoku – Consistency Rank # 17

56/639/4 of 88 objectives
Great 6% | Good 31% | Chest 50%
Safety: (+1.53) vs. Prime 16 Cross DEF
9 Weeks vs Prime 16 (Eight.85) / 7 Weeks vs. Bot 16 (7.32)
Residence (7.71) / Street (7.74) Cut up: (-0.03) at residence

2. The Browns TE of the yr had some thrilling moments of the yr, but ended up at 50% chest. He had 7 games with 35 meters or less. For those who can take a step with the entire yr with Baker Mayfield, he might lower his chest to 33% and turn out to be reliable TE. The worry is that Njoku isn’t the primary goal of this crime, which reduces his general ceiling regardless of his sporty profile.

10. Vance McDonald – Consistency Rank # 19

50/610/4 72 gadgets
Nice 7% | Good 27% | Chest 67%
Defenses: (-Zero.5) vs 16 Greatest DEF
6 Weeks vs Prime 16 (7.03) / 9 Weeks vs Bot 16 (7.53)
Residence (6.38) / Street (6.38) 8.43) Cut up: (-2.05) at house

If you do Vance dance, is there all the time a celebration with Mike, might you ever belief him? Only as soon as per season did he have "good games" backwards. McDonald has 7 players beneath 30 meters in length and 67% chest, and it is a fun participant who would have killed the record most of the time.

11. Rob Gronkowski – Consistency Rank # 12

47/682/three 72 Aim
Nice 15% | Good 38% | Chest 54%
Defenses: (-Eight.47) vs. Prime 16 Move DEF
5 Weeks vs. Prime 16 (three.1) / 8 Weeks vs. Bot 16 (11.78)
Residence (8.2) / Street (Eight.72) Cut up: (-0.52) at residence

Mike fell proudly with the ship after taking a shot at Gronk on the board. His pricing (2nd and third end) was costly, and when he was healthy, it appeared that you simply needed to start him. I mean it's Gronk! He stated he would take a couple of weeks in Patriots' Super Bowl victory to think about his 2019 outlook. Andy believes Gronk throws in a towel and retires.

12. Evan Engram – Consistency Rank # 6

45/577/3 64 objectives
Nice 18% | Good 55% | Chest 36%
Protection: (+2.72) vs. Prime 16 Move DEF
5 Weeks vs. Prime 16 (10.74) / 6 Weeks vs. Bot 16 (Eight.02)
House (9.9) ) / Street (8.72) Cut up: (+1.18) at house

Engram is probably probably the most fascinating TE identify that may permit them in the 2018 season. After a very good rookie campaign, Engram fought towards accidents but was still in TE7 fantasy points per recreation. He also had a mean of almost 7 PPR factors per recreation when Odell Beckham Jr. He has a draft pedigree and the prospect to be a prime 5 man.

13. D.J. Howard – Consistency Rank # 4

34/565/5 48 of the aim
Great 20% | Good 70% | Chest 30%
Defenses: (-1.98) vs. Prime 16 Move DEF
5 Weeks vs Prime 16 (9.36) / 5 Weeks vs. Bot 16 (11.34)
Residence (9.62) / Street (10.83) Cut up: (-1.21) at house

Howard was a beast when he performed earlier than damage in week 11. He's a bodily pattern and somebody who's value taking photographs at midnight (Eight-10) if you need every week TE . Traditionally, Bruce Arians has not had much manufacturing from the TE station, however he has never had a expertise like Howard. The judgment continues to be gone if Jameis Winston has chemistry together with his young passport.

15. Chris Herndon – Consistency Rank # 10

Consistency Classification Calculates Only Week 6-17 (When He Was Enjoying The Majority of TE Clicks)
Nice 9% | Good 36% | Chest 45%
39/502/Four 56
Protectors: (-Four.86) vs. Prime 16 Move DEF
9 Weeks vs Prime 16 (4.9) / 5 Weeks vs. Bot 16 (9,76)
House (9.56) / Street (three.83) Cut up: (+5.73) at residence

Herndon has a strong Rookie season with rare consistency for Rookie TE. Actually, he introduced the top 30-fold Rookie TE PPR season. Historically, Jets has not used TE, however Herndon definitely seems to be their man who strikes ahead slowly. He has been working as a late-round TE and can be minimize if issues don't work early.

25. Ian Thomas – Consistency Rank # 12

36/333/2 49 of the objectives
Great Zero% | Good 43% | Bust 57%
Consistency Classification just for calculating video games with out Olsen

Four Weeks vs Prime 16 (5.22) / 6 Weeks vs. Bot 16 ( 7.07)
Residence (4.57) / Street (8.97) Cut up: (-Four.Four) at house

If Greg Olsen retires, Ian Thomas showed that he is a worthy shooter during a late spherical. Cam Newton's shoulder additionally brings query marks to the desk.
