Let’s take a gander at the targets for tight ends to end last season. There’s nothing insane here unfortunately. For the most part the target numbers coincide with production. Tight Ends need consistent targets since they are rarely targeted deep. Rob Gronkowski led all tight ends with three 40+ yard gains while that would put 18 wide receivers ahead of him. So finding a TE who you know will get his 5+ targets a game can be valuable.
