TE Receptions/Catches

Tight end catches can range quite frequently, but in a world where PPR scoring has become the norm, receptions for tight ends are very important. If tight ends are not scoring touchdowns, receptions are important, just like any other position. The one thing to note about the tight end production is that their roles can change on a weekly basis. Jason Witten might be asked to block for a particular game and then asked to be a featured weapon in the passing game the next. There are only a few standout tight ends that are dominating receptions, and you will find them at the top of fantasy charts everywhere. With tight end routes being on the efficient side, you will find higher catch rates and more effective targets within this group. Sort them out by week, or take the average into effect to figure out what tight ends should garnish your interest.
