2023 Player Outlook
Michael Mayer was in the discussion as the best tight end prospect available in the 2023 draft but he ended up going as the third tight end off the board in the second round at pick 35. From a real-life football perspective, he likely is the best two-way tight end in the class as his in-line blocking ability is superior to the two guys who went ahead of him, Dalton Kincaid and Sam LaPorta. The issue for him is that doesn't always translate to fantasy football success. And, in 2023, he'll not only have to overcome veteran tight end Austin Hooper but he'll go up against some stiff competition in the WR room for targets. He might be more of a long-term dynasty stash than someone you can trust right from the jump.
