Brock Bowers, TE, Las Vegas Raiders

There was a massive sigh when the Las Vegas Raiders selected Brock Bowers with the 13th overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Bowers slipped slightly in the draft, and the Raiders jumped in and selected the generational talent. He is a back-to-back John Mackey Award winner and the first tight end to win twice.

Bowers possesses a rare blend of blocking prowess and receiving skills and will be the latest go-to tight-end target to hit the NFL. The concern here is with the Raiders and their offense. First is the uncertainty at quarterback, with Aiden O'Connell and journeyman Gardner Minshew leading the offense. In addition, they already roster an elite tight end in rising Michael Mayer. However, talent will win out here. Bowers and Mayers will provide a massive one-two punch, and Bowers will be a top-ten tight end for the next decade.

Ben Sinnott, TE, Washington Commanders

Ben Sinnott is the new shiny toy in the 2024 Dynasty Rookie Tight End class. His unique versatility allowed his draft stock to soar at the NFL Scouting Combine. Sinnott had a career year with 49 receptions for 676 yards and six touchdowns for Kansas State last season. In his rookie campaign, he will have ample opportunity to carve out an early role in the Commanders' offense.

Washington added veteran Zach Ertz to the roster this offseason to combine with John Bates and Cole Turner in an unimpressive tight end room for the Commanders. His athletic ability fits in perfectly with the new offensive coordinator, Kliff Kingsbury, in his attack. His potential fantasy impact should not be ignored in your rookie drafts. Sinnott should be heavily sought-after as the next breakout star at tight end.

Ja'Tavian Sanders, TE, Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers focused on providing weapons around their young quarterback, Bryce Young, including their fourth-round selection of Texas Longhorns tight end Ja'Tavain Sanders. Sanders entered the 2024 NFL Draft and was recognized as one of the top three tight-end players based on his pass-catching ability, speed, and ball skills. He is more of a vertical pass-catcher and made memorable big plays with after-the-catch yards for the Longhorns last season.

Sanders will need to bulk up to be an every-down tight end, as he is one of the lightest tight ends in the league at only 243 pounds. However, his speed and explosiveness should bring a much-needed upgrade to the Panthers' tight end room. It will not be difficult to improve this position with no tight end on the Panthers last season, surpassing 200 receiving yards.

Sanders can potentially be an immediate contributor to this Panther's offense. With his ability to win over the middle and up the seam, he can be an outlet for Young. Fantasy managers looking to tight-end help in their rookie drafts should target Sanders in the late second or early third round, but don't hesitate to reach a little higher.

Theo Johnson, TE, New York Giants

With Darren Waller still undecided about retiring, the New York Giants selected Penn State tight end Theo Johnson in the fourth round of the 2024 NFL Draft. His production steadily climbed each season, and he led the Nittany Lions with seven touchdowns in 2023.

Johnson is an all-around tight end with upside potential as a versatile pass-catcher who can immediately contribute to the Giants' offense if Waller retires. With opposing defenses double-teaming first-round pick Malik Nabers, Johnson should have plenty of room to make plays in the middle of the field. The Giants also have Daniel Bellinger in the tight end room. However, he has proven to be a secondary option at best, which opens the door for Johnson to step in as the TE1 in the Giants' offense.

Cade Stover, TE, Houston Texans

The Houston Texans drafted Stover with pick No. 123 in the fourth round, allowing Stover to reunite with his college quarterback, C.J. Stroud. The duo led the Buckeyes en route to a College Football Playoff berth with them, connecting for 36 receptions for 406 yards and five touchdowns. Stover was Stroud's security blanket and will try again to serve as a top quarterback-tight end tandem with the Texans.

Stover will play in two tight-end sets with veteran tight end Dalton Schultz, but do not let this deter you from grabbing Stover late in your rookie drafts. The chemistry between the former Buckeyes provides sneaky sleeper appeal and should not be ignored by fantasy managers.

Erick All, TE, Cincinnati Bengals

The newest Cincinnati Bengal is a local player who enters the NFL after a short stint with the Iowa Hawkeyes. He played only seven games before missing the rest of the season with an ACL injury. Although he only played in seven games, he still led the Hawkeyes in receiving yards with 299 and in receiving scores with three. Although his injury history and durability are concerns, his catching ability and recovery exhibit the potential to be a high-upside sleeper.

Being a weapon in a Joe Burrow-led offense is not too shabby, and dynasty managers can grab the lottery pick with their last rookie draft selection.

Jaheim Bell, TE, New England Patriots

Although the New England Patriots drafted Bell in the seventh round as a tight end, Bell is not a traditional tight end but more of a wing or H-back player whose versatility allows him to take snaps out of the backfield and line up outside. His unique skill set could contribute to the Patriots' offense.

Bell joins veterans Hunter Henry and Austin Hooper in the Patriots' tight end room, which leaves Bell limited opportunities to shine in a new Patriots offense.

Jared Wiley, TE, Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs landed considerable value with the selection of TCU TE Jared Wiley. They selected Wiley with the No. 131 pick, but the draft analysts were ranking the TCU TE as a top 85 player elsewhere! Wiley earned First-Team All-Big 12 honors after his breakout 2023 campaign, hauling 47 receptions for 520 yards and eight touchdowns.

Wiley recorded just one drop on 120 targets during his career. He was also a huge scoring threat, catching the most receiving touchdowns (8) of any FBS tight end last season. Wiley led all FBS tight ends with five red-zone scores.

The Chiefs' offense continues to grow. Wiley can be a factor in the red zone more than fellow tight end Noah Gray, who also contributes on special teams. His big body and outstanding catch radius should provide a sneaky pass-catching upside. Keep Wiley on your fantasy radar in deep TE2 redraft leagues. Wiley is a lotto selection in dynasty leagues.

AJ Barner, TE, Seattle Seahawks

Barner emerges from the 2024 NFL Draft as the best TE2 option for the Seattle Seahawks. He was primarily utilized as a blocker at Michigan. His colossal frame and aggressive charge downhill style as a blocker suit him well to make immediate dividends in the Seahawks' running game.

Fantasy managers should look elsewhere for assistance at the tight-end position.

Tip Reiman, TE, Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals' selection of TIp Reiman will not move the fantasy needle except for James Conner, Kyler Murray, and the rest of the Cardinal's running game. Reiman was ranked as one of the top blocking tight ends in this year's draft. He is a big, physical blocker at 6-5 271 pounds who is a force in the run game and will be the thunder to Troy McBride's lightning.

Reiman will make his way into the Cardinals lineup in 12 personnel packages. Still, it is highly doubtful that fantasy managers will ever turn to the former Illini tight end in their lineups.
