College Fantasy Football 2019 Tight End, Defense and Kicker Rankings

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

Looking at the tight ends specifically, this is an incredibly strong group from which to choose from, starting at the top with potential breakout star in Colby Parkinson. Stanford tight ends combined for 76 receptions and nine touchdowns a season ago, and Parkinson will now have the position all to himself after Kaden Smith departed early for the NFL. With the skills of a wide receiver, Parkinson looks to be in line for a huge year in 2019.

Athlon Sports contributor and resident college fantasy football expert Mike Bainbridge (@MBainbridgeCFF) is here 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.

25 Passing Yards = 1 point

10 Rushing Yards = 1 point

Rushing TDs = 6 points

Recommended Articles
