More Player Consistency:  Overview  |  Quarterback  |  Running Back  |  Wide Receiver  |  Tight End

Below lists out each notable tight end who played at least eight games and their categories list the number of games in which they had at least the stated topic. The consistency rating comes from the number of times where they had either a 50 yards game and/or a touchdown game, all divided by the number of games that they played.

The Column for "Either" shows how many times they had either 50 yards and/or a touchdown game.

The nicety is that there continues to be eight solid choices at tight end each year and enought upside on others to make the position to rarely hurt a fantasy team. Vernon Davis had a huge breakout but it came with big stats in fewer games than others had. Jermichael Finley is another newcomer along with Brent Celek. There are plenty of decent options here and a few that can make a difference even from the lowest scoring spot on your roster.
