As noted in the Tight Ends Rankings for leagues that use standard scoring, or “O.G. scoring”, as we Tupac fans like to call it, we are now getting to the meat and potatoes of the fantasy rankings, because I remember being hungry. Then again, I’m always hungry. Mostly for alcohol, but, you know, protein and starch… I got room for ya. Regardless, I bring you the tight end rankings for PPR leagues. And while everything I address for standard leagues still generally applies here, you’ll definitely see some movement of players, based on their value from receptions or the lack thereof.
Tier 2 looks different.: Yes, yes it does my perceptive typed words you. In fact, the only non-change was the craziness that is Greg Olsen at numero dos. Basically what is described in Spanish as “la caca en la que la verdad se encuentra es con el océano”. It’s a rough translation, based on my expertise of the language. But yeah, receptions are a thing in this iteration, and that changes the dynamic. Vernon Davis now closes out Tier 2, as compared to his peers, most of his value derives from yardage and red zone targets. Kyle Rudolph moves up because that Norvitus is actually a positive for any offensive principal, unlike a Schiano-man, who just gets MRSA. Jason Witten and Charles Clay also sneak into the Tier 2. Delanie Walker, Antonio Gates and Heath Miller all move up, as they’ve shown (especially Gates and Miller) to be favorite escape valves by their respective Quarterbacks.
