Tight Ends: Discover the Best Fantasy Football Bargains of 2023

2023 Fantasy Football Steals by Position: Tight Ends
Fact Checked by Young Ruth

Arizona Cardinals fans and supporters in Arizona sports betting are experiencing a disappointing autumn as the team is on track for their worst regular season since 2018.

The 3-10 Cardinals may be struggling, but second-year tight end Trey McBride has shined brightly. Quickly emerging as one of the top pass catchers in the league, McBride’s breakout season has made him a fantasy football standout for those who drafted him in the second round of the 2022 draft.

As the fantasy league playoffs approach, yengols.com utilized FantasyData.com to compile the most recent tight end rankings in a standard PPR league following Week 13. They then analyzed these rankings against the average draft positions of tight ends in a standard PPR league prior to the season, focusing only on those who were ranked in the Top 40 in the original ADP rankings.

McBride Emerges as Unexpected NFL Success Story

McBride and Logan Thomas, both of Washington, have surged up the fantasy rankings for tight ends in the NFL, each climbing an impressive 25 spots since the beginning of the regular season.

In conclusion, McBride has made a notable jump in fantasy tight end rankings, rising from 32nd to 7th place with an average of 9.9 points per week. This advancement of 25 spots exceeds that of Cade Otton of Tampa Bay, who has climbed 19 places from 35th to 16th. In terms of fantasy points per game, McBride ranks third among the group with 9.9 PPG, behind LaPorta’s 14.3 and Ferguson’s 10.5.

McBride and the Cardinals will have a bye this week, but are looking to pull off their second upset in a row when they take on the 9-3 San Francisco team at 2:05 p.m. on December 17. ESPN’s Super Bowl favorites have Arizona as the preferred team to win, with the 49ers at +300. Kansas City is closely behind at +500.
