2023 Free Agency Preview: Tight Ends

The official start to the 2023 NFL season is quickly approaching, with the league year and free agency opening at 4 p.m. on March 15. Teams will begin signing free agents, and any trades agreed to prior to the new league year will become official starting on that date.

There are a couple of other key dates to remember before the league year officially kicks off. Teams have to designate franchise players by March 7. The NFL also has a legal negotiating window from March 13-15, when teams can start contacting and negotiating with the agents of unrestricted free agents. We’ll hear of some deals breaking during that window, even though they can’t become official.

With that said, it’s time to start breaking down the 2023 free agency class, which includes Dalton Schultz and Mike Gesicki at the TE position. Be sure to follow Fantasy Points throughout free agency for in-depth breakdowns of every major (and minor) move. We’ll be tracking every off-season transaction from a fantasy perspective through our “Off-season Tracker” articles and Graham Barfield’s “Fantasy Fallout” pieces.

We’ll also be constantly updating our Best Ball rankings if you’re looking to get an early start to draft season with our friends over at Underdog Fantasy (Promo code: FANTASYPTS). New signups to Underdog get both a deposit match of up to $100 and a Fantasy Points Standard subscription for just $5.

NOTE: Players are loosely ranked based on talent, age, plus previous and expected future fantasy relevance. Free Agency information courtesy of OverTheCap.com.

Unrestricted Free Agents

Note: An unrestricted free agent is a player with four or more accrued seasons and an expired contract who is free to negotiate and sign with any team.
