Utah's Brant Kuithe is among the few elite tight end options that can really boost your fantasy team
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
Receptions = 0.5 points per reception
10 receiving yards = 1 point
Receiving TDs = 6 points
