Fantasy football rankings: The top 20 tight ends for 2023 (with tiers)

Go for a sure thing at the top of your draft like Travis Kelce or wait further down the board? Here's how the TE landscape in fantasy shakes out...

There aren't very many exciting tight ends on the fantasy football landscape. If you don't snag one of the top five or six guys on the draft board, you're really in "close your eyes and hope" territory.

Do you want a sure thing like Travis Kelce (who should cost you a first-rounder)? Or do you want to spend your draft capital on wide receivers and running backs and figure out tight ends later?

We've broken down the top 20 TEs into the following tiers, each of which contains players with a likelihood of finishing with a similar number of fantasy points:

Travis Kelce (1) — Travis Kelce

Proven studs (5) — Mark Andrews, George Kittle, TJ Hockenson, Dallas Goedert, Darren Waller

Talented but with question marks (4) — Kyle Pitts, Pat Freiermuth, Evan Engram, David Njoku

Shiny and new (2) — Greg Dulcich,  Chigoziem Okonkwo

Above average with variance (4) — Dalton Schultz, Cole Kmet, Tyler Higbee, Gerald Everett

Take a flier (3) — Taysom Hill, Juwan Johnson, Sam LaPorta
