    Dynasty Rankings 2024: Top Fantasy Options at TE Include Sam LaPorta, Brock Bowers, and Trey McBride

    Which tight ends sit atop our dynasty rankings as we take stock of everyone's fantasy football status following a hectic NFL offseason?

    The tight end position is perhaps the most frustrating when it comes to dynasty rankings because of the group’s volatility. No position seems to have more variation year-to-year outside of the top players than tight end. Add in the potential decline and imminent retirement of Travis Kelce, and suddenly, this position could leave fantasy football managers scratching their heads.

    To try and help you avoid any TE-related headaches, Pro Football Network’s fantasy football analysts do all the hard work and research to form their positional rankings. We then combine those rankings into a consensus to help fantasy managers make tough decisions on draft day.

    Who Are the Best Tight Ends To Draft in Dynasty?

    Seemingly out of nowhere, Sam LaPorta has emerged as the top tight end to draft in dynasty leagues. The answer for many seasons was Kelce, but with his slight decline in 2023, combined with retirement on the horizon, he’s fallen out of the top five altogether.

    LaPorta took the league by storm in his rookie year, finishing with 889 yards and 10 touchdowns on 86 receptions. He became the second pass-catching option in the Detroit Lions offense, behind only Amon-Ra St. Brown. LaPorta’s rookie breakout was reinforced by a successful postseason run, leaving the second-year TE as the clear top option for dynasty leagues.

    Behind him, things get quite messy. Trey McBride has slowly developed into a top fantasy option over the last two years, but the path now appears clear for him to be a star. Kyler Murray is healthy, and the Arizona Cardinals have limited high-end pass-catching options on their roster, which both boost McBride’s upside.

    Brock Bowers comes into the league with a lot of hype, but we hope he doesn’t experience the same early career struggles that Kyle Pitts had. Bowers very well could be the second receiving option on the Las Vegas Raiders roster, but we may have to be patient as the rookie takes that step into the NFL.

    Dalton Kincaid had a mixed season as a rookie and is almost the TE4 here by default. With injury issues and a decline in production for T.J. Hockenson, Kelce, George Kittle, and Mark Andrews, there is a void atop the dynasty tight end rankings.

    Names such as Pitts, Evan Engram, Jake Ferguson, Dallas Goedert, and David Njoku could take a step up, but each has its respective concerns or limitations.
