Drafting tight ends in fantasy is like eating your vegetables at dinner. You know you should, but you really don't want to.

On a points-per-game basis, the TE4 (Evan Engram) and TE20 (Vernon Davis)... Read More

When it comes to fantasy sports, we're always looking for the highest possible Return On Investment or ROI.
