Finding a viable tight end in fantasy football can sometimes be like finding a needle in a haystack. If you aren’t able to snag one of George Kittle, Travis Kelce, Mark Andrews, or Zach Ertz, then you could be taking a chance on a tight end that doesn’t have a cemented role in their respective offense.

Last season, plenty of people utilized the tactic of streaming tight ends that would square off against the Arizona Cardinals. From Week 1-Week 17 in the 2019 season, the Cardinals defense surrendered an average of 16.2 fantasy points per week (most in the NFL).

Given the conglomerate of tight ends behind the top-tier guys, it’s vital to find ones that have the best chance of producing touchdowns. Taking that into consideration, let’s take a look at three late-round tight ends you should consider drafting in fantasy football in 2020.
