The Best Fantasy Football Tight Ends Of 2019

Updated August 20, 2019 198 votes 12 voters40 items

List RulesVote up the tight ends who will be most valuable to owners' fantasy football teams in 2019

The top fantasy tight ends in 2019 include a combination of new stars taking over the NFL and legends in the latter stages of their careers. Among the best 2018 fantasy TEs were stars like George Kittle and Eric Ebron, who put up stellar numbers.

Legendary names like Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz will still appear near the top of the fantasy football rankings and certainly among the top fantasy TE rankings. But young, up-and-coming players like O.J. Howard and Evan Engram will make a push for the crown, as well, and could be the perfect boost for your fantasy draft. 

So which tight ends deserve to be near the top of the 2019 fantasy football rankings? Which TEs would you count on for your fantasy team's success? Make your choices known below and come back throughout the season to see how those choices are working out.
