2. Darren Waller, Las Vegas Raiders
Since he was the latest big-bodied receiver out of Georgia Tech once upon a time, Darren Waller has really established himself as one of the top pass-catching tight ends in all of football.
Waller averages almost 1,200 yards and six touchdowns per 17 games and his touchdown opportunities could continue to just go up.
He’s a mismatch with his size, he’s a mismatch with his speed, and he can make plays on the ball in contested catch situations.
We heard from Vic Fangio a variety of times over the last three years what an athletic marvel Darren Waller is at the position.
He’s one of the toughest tight ends to cover in the league.
1. Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs
Travis Kelce is the best tight end in the league right now.
Debate a wall, as they say.
Kelce cranks out 1,000-yard seasons like clockwork. He’s got six in a row and he was over 800 receiving yards the two years before that.
This guy is an absolute machine and is unquestionably one of the most dynamic players at the position in the entire NFL.
The Denver Broncos play in one of the most talented divisions in the entire NFL. The AFC West is loaded, but which players are overrated?
He does everything well, and he’s one of the most hated players in Broncos Country for a reason. Nobody likes this guy because the Broncos have yet to employ anyone that can stop him.
