How To Dominate the Tight End Position In DFS
How many times have you heard me say, the name of the game is touchdowns. It’s even more so when looking at the tight end position. Tight ends are not heavily targeted from a week-to-week basis and when they are, it’s mostly short targets.
Let’s be honest, the tight end position is weak. You have your two or three studs at the top and then it gets pretty bleak. I usually either pay up at the position for Rob Gronkowski or Jordan Reed, when they are healthy or I look for value and get the cheapest guy I can with some upside. Gronkowski and Reed are risky players to draft in season-long leagues, but they are both extremely dominate when they are on the football field and they are strong plays in DFS for the most part. Feast or famine when it comes to production, but nailing down this position will most likely be the difference to winning big or not.
Tight End Strategy
Tight ends are generally going to see the least amount of opportunities over the course of a game. Rarely ever do you want to play two in your lineup. DraftKings allows you to play another in your FLEX spot if you wish, but it’s not a great strategy.
