    Dynasty TE’s To Buy, Sell, Hold For The 2021 Season.

    With the NFL Draft less than a month away and NFL free agency in full swing dynasty owners have been keeping an eye on every transaction and rookie prospect. I’m going to talk about a player that I would consider buying, holding, and selling in dynasty leagues.

    2020 Stats: 53 receptions, 703 receiving yards, 6 touchdowns, 85 targets. Finished as TE 7

    2021 Projected Stats via My Fantasy League: 59 receptions, 700 receiving yards, 6 touchdowns, 103 targets. Projected TE 7

    Buy Mike Gesicki In Dynasty (IDP Guys ADP 317.50, TE Ranking 24)

    There has been lots of media coverage recently surrounding the Miami Dolphins and what their offense might look like going into this season. This big block buster trade they were involved in helped to provide some clarity, we hope.


    Based on how the top 6 picks are projected to shake out it looks like the Dolphins will be able to land another offensive weapon for Tua. No matter if they draft the top rookie tight end, Kyle Pitts or not Tua should continue to rely on his tight end. At the end of last season, Mike Gesicki was either first or second in targets in games Tua started. Heading into this season I don’t see that changing. Additionally, newly signed wide receiver Will Fuller will miss week one as he finishes his PED violation, from last season.

    If that’s all I have to give up to acquire Gesicki then I won’t be able to send out trades fast enough. As of now everyone continues to sleep on him based on his ADP. Now is a great time to try and acquire a top 10 tight end, especially in tight end premium leagues.

    2020 Stats: 44 receptions, 522 receiving yards, 5 touchdowns, 60 targets. Finished as TE 18

    2021 Projected Stats via My Fantasy League: 57 receptions, 636 yards, 3 touchdowns, 77 targets. Projected TE 16

    Hold Tyler Higbee In Dynasty (IDP Guys ADP 273.75, TE Ranking 20)

    With Gerald Everett now is Seattle and no other tight end of real competition on the roster this should open up more targets for Higbee. However, gone is Jared Goff and in is Matthew Stafford. This quarterback change has caused me to view Higbee as more of a hold than buy or sell at this moment. Additionally, Stafford should be more aggressive as a passer down field than Goff was which would limit Higbee’s targets. If I own Higbee in dynasty I’m holding onto him for now and seeing how the preseason and the start of the regular season goes.

    2020 Stats: 45 receptions, 623 receiving yards, 7 touchdowns, 77 targets. Finished as TE 8

    2021 Projected Stats via My Fantasy League: 45 receptions, 606 receiving yards, 8 touchdowns, 78 targets. Projected as TE 11

    Sell Rob Gronkowski In Dynasty (IDP Guys ADP 227.50, TE Ranking 17)

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have brought back all of their eleven starters on offense from last seasons Super Bowl team. While this is great for the team it’s not great news for those who own Gronk in dynasty leagues. Here are additional reasons for why I’m selling him in dynasty. First, he re-signed for one season, so the possibility he retires next off season is something to consider. Second, there are a lot of pass catchers on offense so the chance Gronk is inconsistent weekly is highly likely. I would look to trade him now while his name still has some value.
