As the great philosopher Justin Timberlake once said: "It's gonna be May." Well, it is indeed May and that means we're living in a post-2021 NFL Draft world. After months and months of speculation, we finally know where college football's best players will be starting their pro careers. As such, there are adjustments that need to be made to fantasy football rankings as we get deeper into spring.

Below are my top 30 tight end rankings, powered by Underdog Fantasy, for the 2021 fantasy football season. Rookies have been updated to reflect the teams that drafted them and brackets indicate how high players have risen or fallen since my last rankings update at the end of March.

All of my rankings reflect the order in which I would draft a player right now in full-point PPR leagues with otherwise default scoring. If you have any specific questions or want to know more about what I think of certain players, feel free to hit me up on Twitter (@JaimeEisner) or Instagram (@JaimeEisnerTDN). I’d be happy to chat with you!
