College Fantasy Football 2020 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, I have maintained this offseason that there are four elite options from which to choose and there are minuscule differences between the group. SMU's Kylen Granson, Utah's Brant Kuithe, Florida's Kyle Pitts, and Iowa State's Charlie Kolar are all Tier 1 players and you really can't go wrong with either selection in 2020.

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. (Note: This does not apply for defenses or kickers.)

25 passing yards = 1 point

Passing TD = 4 points

10 rushing yards = 1 point

Rushing TDs = 6 points

Recommended Articles

Receptions = 0.5 points per reception

10 receiving yards = 1 point

Receiving TDs = 6 points
