1. Dallas Goedert, Philadelphia Eagles
Dallas Goedert is ranked first on this list. He is ranked ahead of everyone by a WIDE margin.
Our dude is a blocking and pass-catching machine with efficiency through the roof. He has been on the receiving end of 40 or more first-down conversions during each of the past two seasons. That includes a stretch where he assumed the leading-man role at the position. Keep in mind we're also discussing last season, one where he only appeared in 12 games.
Goedert averages 12.1 yards per catch for his career and is a YAC (yards after catch) machine.
Yeah, he has been injured more than we would have preferred as well. Still, during the past three seasons, he has been able to battle through most of them. If you're keeping tabs on him, however, there was the soft tissue injury. That was a calf issue that forced him to 'miss' the last game of the 2020 season. Everything else, including last year’s shoulder thing, has been a broken or fractured bone.
There’s zero doubt that Goedert is TE1 in the NFC East and it wouldn’t be the biggest surprise if he ends up being TE1 in the NFL this season.
