Iowa Hawkeyes TE Noah Fant

While not priorities when constructing your college fantasy football lineup, the tight ends, kickers and defense you select can be the small difference to help you conquer your league this season.

With regards to the tight ends, this year will be like choosing between cookie dough, Oreo or mint chocolate chip ice cream. There are three excellent choices and you won’t be let down by either one, regardless of the pick. Oklahoma’s Grant Calcaterra, Missouri’s Albert Okwuegbunam and Iowa’s Noah Fant are first-rate tight ends in CFF this season and you can’t go wrong any of them.

Athlon Sports has teamed up with contributor and resident college fantasy football expert Mike Bainbridge to help you prepare for the upcoming college fantasy football draft season with our positional rankings. Below is the scoring system used for these positional rankings.
