A Look at the Tight Ends

Before diving into the volatility ratings, let’s take a look at how the Similarity Score App-generated median projections compare to ADP.

Tight End Median Projection ADP Value
Rob Gronkowski 13.3 2 1
Jimmy Graham 12.6 1 -1
Jason Witten 12.4 3 0
Tony Gonzalez 12.1 5 1
Heath Miller 11.5 17 12
Brandon Myers 10.6 12 6
Greg Olsen 10.3 11 4
Owen Daniels 10.3 13 5
Dennis Pitta 9.9 6 -3
Brandon Pettigrew 9.3 19 9
Jermichael Finley 8.7 10 -1
Jared Cook 7.8 8 -4
Kyle Rudolph 7.2 7 -6
Vernon Davis 7 4 -10
Fred Davis 6.9 20 5
Antonio Gates 6.8 9 -7
Martellus Bennett 6.6 14 -3
Jordan Cameron 3.9 15 -3

Not surprisingly, we see Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham at the top of the list, followed by Jason Witten and Tony Gonzalez. Shockingly, heath Miller checks in at fifth—12 spots ahead of his ADP among tight ends—fitting nicely with this article by Coleman Kelly on why Miller is an underrated asset. The next player on the list—Brandon Myers—is the third-best value relative to his ADP, behind only Brandon Pettigrew. Aaron Messing has more on that overlooked tight end in the pass-happy offense.

At the other end of the spectrum, we see Vernon Davis as the 14th-highest projected tight end, despite the fact that he’s getting drafted fourth at the position. He’s joined by Antonio Gates and Kyle Rudolph as the worst values.
