FANTASY FOOTBALL: 2020 Consistency Awards - TE

Bob Lung passes out the Consistency Awards to the tight ends for 2019 Fantasy Football season! Where did your tight ends finish? Follow Bob @bob_lung.

The Fantasy Football season of 2020 is in the books and there were many Clutch tight ends and some, well, not so much. Therefore, in the heart of Awards season, it’s time to announce the 2020 Clutch Awards for the Tight Ends!

WORST VALUE

This award goes to the Tight End that had the highest ADP at the beginning of the season and ended the season with the worst combination of total Fantasy Points and consistency. Thus, making him the worst value at tight end in 2020.

And the winner is….

Zach Ertz

Ah…remember the “good ole days” when we talk about the Big 3 tight ends and Zach Ertz was always one of them. Well, those days have quickly past and now Ertz isn’t even discussed as a TE1 anymore. Injuries and poor play have pushed Ertz out of relevance. He headed into 2020 as the TE4 overall. However, in the 11 games he played, he headed the year ranked 33rd in total points and had a 36% consistency, which ranked him 24th overall. He may be a good value with a new team, which has been rumored. However, for now, I’m out.  

 

BEST VALUE

This award goes to the Tight End that had the lowest ADP at the beginning of the season and ended the season with the best combination of total Fantasy Points and consistency. Thus, making the best value at tight end in 2020.

And the winner is….

Logan Thomas

Thomas was undrafted by almost every redraft league and probably many dynasty leagues. Thomas took over in Washington at tight end and never looked back. Regardless of the garbage quarterbacks, Thomas was extremely consistent and productive. He ended the year ranked THIRD in total points and had a 63% consistency rating, which ranked him sixth overall. You have to like his value heading into 2021 as Washington will need his talent to keep the offense moving.

 

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR

This award goes to the rookie Tight End that had ended the season with the best combination of total Fantasy Points and consistency.

And the winner is….

Cole Kmet

Well, unlike the other positions, the tight ends did not produce a 60% or higher consistent player in 2020. In fact, the rookie tight ends were basically worthless again in 2020. Cole Kmet wins the award based on being the best of the worst. He ended the season ranked 42nd in total points and a putrid 19% Clutch Rate, which ranked him 41st. So, what does that mean for the 2020 ADP of Cole Kmet? Does anyone really care? I know I don’t.

 

CLUTCH-LESS

This award goes to the Tight End that ended the season with a high ranking in total Fantasy Points, but his consistency was lower than expected. Therefore, making him look more valuable (due to high points rank) than he was worth to his Fantasy teams.

And the winner is….

Dalton Schultz

The tight end position as a whole was extremely inconsistent. This is obvious when someone like Dalton Schultz (another undrafted Fantasy tight end) ends up ranked 10th in total points, but has a weak 38% consistency rating, which ranked him 21st overall. Since Jason Witten has moved on, the Cowboys have been worthless in the Fantasy world for tight ends. Blake Jarwin didn’t help much either in 2020. Just stay away.

 

CLUTCH-MORE

This award goes to the Tight End that ended the season with a low ranking in total Fantasy Points, but his consistency was higher than expected. Therefore, making him look less valuable (due to high points rank) to his Fantasy teams, when he was actually worth MORE!

And the winner is….

Jonnu Smith

Smith is a solid tight end and can be fairly consistent. This year was no different, as Smith was only 16th in total points and had a nice 60% consistency rating, which ranked him eighth overall. Still not sold on drafting him, but if you can’t get the studs, he should be a mid-late round value.

 

CLUTCH COMEBACK PLAYER OF THE YEAR

This award goes to the Tight End that ended the 2019 season with a poor ranking in total Fantasy Points and consistency. However, in 2020, he had the greatest improvement in both categories making him very valuable to his Fantasy teams.

And the winner is….

Robert Tonyan

Can you have a “comeback” if no one has ever heard of you outside of Ron Rigney? Of course, you can! Tonyan started his fourth season with Green Bay in 2020 and was a general unknown tight end from Ron’s alma mater of Indiana State. Tonyan quietly ended the year ranked FOURTH in total points and had a nice 63% consistency rating, which ranked him seventh. Just like Logan Thomas, he showed be a solid value heading into 2021. I like this kid a lot!

 

CLUTCH MVP

This award goes to the Tight End that ended the 2020 with the best combination of total Fantasy Points and consistency.

And the winner is….

Travis Kelce

YAWN!!! Kelce wins his FOURTH consecutive Consistency MVP award. And for the THIRD straight season, Kelce dominated the tight end position. He was once again #1 in total points and was 33 points ahead of second place. He was ranked #1 in consistency with a 93% Clutch Rate and had a xConsistency of 19.33 (also #1). The key once again in 2021 is how high do you have to draft Kelce to get him. I’m expecting in the first or second round once again. He just might be worth it.
