With MLB, NBA and NHL all on hold, the NFL took center stage last week with the start of free agency. We saw franchise and transition tags handed out as well as a whirlwind of player movement that takes our “Way Too Early” Player Rankings and chucks ‘em out the window. Ok, so not altogether, but I’ve got enough risers and fallers to afford me the opportunity to update my 2020 rankings of the skill positions as we head towards the NFL Draft in late April.

Let's move on to the tight ends...

Again, not a huge amount of movement as tight end production is more relative to the coaching system, but with some of the recent free agent shuffling, we do have a few interesting changes to look at.

1Travis Kelce KCNo changes in Kansas City, so no reason not to expect him to be the No. 1 TE in the game again.
2Mark Andrews BALOver 100 targets last year and still developing alongside Lamar Jackson . No Hayden Hurst either puts Andrews on the field for more snaps.
3George Kittle SFHe'll continue to see the targets as Jimmy Garoppolo 's main option, but will also start drawing more coverage which is why they need more than just Deebo Samuel.
4Darren Waller LVNo reason to think Derek Carr doesn't continue to rely on his most targeted pass-catcher once again.
5Zach Ertz PHIHe's still the No. 1 option for Carson Wentz , but he's going to fight for snaps with Dallas Goedert .
6Hunter Henry LACTyRod Taylor needs that big wide-bodied target and Henry should provide the reliability he needs. 
7Evan Engram NYGJust needs to stay healthy and he can be a fantastic red zone option for Daniel Jones.
8Noah FantDENDeveloped a nice on-field rapport with Drew Lock last year and should remain a major component of the Broncos passing game.
9Austin Hooper CLENeeds to develop some chemistry with his new QB and will compete for targets with OBJ and Jarvis Landry . Should get stron red zone work, though.
10Jared Cook NOTargets may dwindle with the addition of Emmanuel Sanders , but Brees really seemed to appreciate having a strong pass-catching tight end once again.
11T.J. Hockenson DETHopefully he stays concussion-free and can develop into that heavily-targeted tight end Matthew Stafford has needed over the past few seasons.
12O.J. Howard TBIf he can stay on Bruce Arians' good side, then he could be a huge target for Tom Brady in this offense. Must outshine Cameron Brate in a MAJOR way.
13Mike Gesicki MIADevelopd well with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center last season and should continue to see targets in this scheme's passing attack.
14Jonnu Smith TENNo more Delanie Walker puts Smith on center-stage in an offense that loves to utilize the tight end in the passing game.
15Tyler Higbee LARHad a breakout campaign last season and should remain a strong target, especially if the Rams trade away Brandin Cooks .
16Greg Olsen SEAThe veteran tight end should get his mojo back, particularly inside the red zone, with Russell Wilson throwing him the ball.
17Hayden Hurst ATLWould love to see him build a rapport with Matt Ryan similaar to what Austin Hooper did. If so, he could see some otstanding target numbers this season.
18Dallas Goedert PHINot sure if he ever steps out of Ertz' shadow, but he gets enpough work to help you through the bye weeks when your starter is idle.
19Ryan Griffin NYJThe Chris Herndon experiment was a major failure for the Jets and Griffin, in turn, developed strong chemistry with Sam Darnold . If Adam Gase is on-board, he could post a strong season.
20Jimmy Graham CHIMatt Nagy finally gets the big-bodied tight end he's been coveting, even if Graham is years past his prime.
