2021 Tight End (TE) Red Zone Receptions

With tight ends being such a force in the red zone, the volume was one piece of the puzzle, and the next was the catching efficiency. We have seen the great scoring tight ends catch a majority of their red zone looks, and is translates in their touchdown production. Tight end touchdowns often come within the red zone, because let’s be honest, they are not the fastest guys in the world. Tight ends often seen one or two looks at most in a game, and that is on a good day, so making the most of those looks is key to touchdown production. Jimmy Graham and Zach Ertz have shown that this season, already over a combined ten. Touchdowns correlate with red zone catches, as sorting by touchdown makes that noticeable. While you may not pay much attention to tight ends, their red zone efficiency is the one to keep the closest eye on.
