Important: These initial 2018 TE rankings are only my opinion, not ASL's. And, as a human being who is comfortable with changing his mind without a moment's notice in light of further research, these ranks could move at any time. In the weeks ahead, I'll provide more analysis for my ranks beyond just posting a chart. We've got about four long, mostly uneventful months in the NFL ahead of us until the regular season begins. Expect a lot of rankings talk from me between now and then. These ranks assume standard scoring. 

Other early rankings: Top 25 QBs || Top 50 RBs || Top 50 WRs
