    One of the toughest parts of building a dynasty roster is to not only find, but succeed in stashing future talent. Brevin Jordan and Kylen Granson are two tight ends you should target for your taxi squad. 

    I decided I would check out the tight end position to finish out my dynasty stash series. If you missed my other two articles, check them out! You can find my dynasty stash article on wide receivers here and my most recent article on running backs here

    Brevin Jordan

    In all honesty, before the NFL Draft, I never thought I would have included Brevin Jordan in an article like this. I thought he was just a notch below Kyle Pitts in both ability and production. Jordan caught 105 passes for 1,358 yards and 13 touchdowns in 30 games at the University of Miami. He was drafted by the Houston Texans in the fifth round — the ninth tight end selected on draft day. 

    Minimal Competition

    There is a legitimate argument that, outside of Kyle Pitts, Jordan was the best pass-catching tight end in the draft. Houston may be the perfect team for Jordan to prove his worth — Jordan Akins is Brevin Jordan’s biggest competition for targets at tight end in Houston. Akins finished last season with 37 catches and 403 yards. 

    Big Holes to Fill

    After the departures of Hopkins and Fuller, there is a massive hole in target share to be taken by someone in Houston. I am drafting Jordan on that basis alone. It is not out of the question for him to receive targets lined up as a WR. We have seen several teams do it with tight ends that are more developed as pass catchers than blockers. Jordan’s fall in the draft is your benefit to reap.

    Kylen Granson

    Kylen Granson had one of the most unique collegiate careers. He began his career at Rice and, in his first season, Rice played him as a wide receiver. After two seasons, Rice fired head coach David Baliff. Granson was close to Baliff and decided to move on from Rice. Granson eventually landed with SMU for his final two years of college. 

    First and Second Team All-AAC

    At SMU, Granson had to sit out the 2018 season due to transfer rules. SMU switched him to tight end and he flourished. Granson accumulated 43 catches for 721 yards and 9 touchdowns, earning second-team All-AAC as a junior. As a senior, Granson had 35 catches for 536 yards and 5 touchdowns, earning first-team All-AAC.

    Granson will have to compete with Jack Doyle and Mo Allie-Cox. The Colts took Granson in the fourth round of the draft and see him as someone who can step in and take on a larger role. Carson Wentz likes to utilize his tight ends and could look to him as a safety valve when needed. Granson, like Brevin Jordan, could be utilized as a hybrid tight-end and wide receiver. 

    Spending Pennies on the Dollar

    The cost of obtaining either Granson or Jordan is incredibly affordable at this point. You can acquire either tight end fairly late in your rookie drafts or take as a flier at the end of your dynasty startup draft. In our IDP Guys ADP,  Brevin Jordan has a 360.25 ADP and is the 28th ranked tight end overall, while Granson is the fourth-ranked rookie tight end with an ADP of 72.33. If you are playing in a tight-end premium scoring league, both Granson and Jordan could provide immediate production and either would be a great dynasty stash.
