I am already feeling the time evaporate. Here we are in Week 3 already! Yours truly has a hometown league that is in trouble at 0-2 overall. In most other spaces I am 1-1...how about you all?
I’m desperate for Ricky Seals-Jones to have a showing this week (and he’s had decent target volume). Looks like that 0-2 team might be in trouble...
Anyway, here’s my first pass at tight ends this week. Haggle away in the comments or tell me if you think I missed someone. Peace!
Week 3 Tight End Rankings
|1||Rob Gronkowski||@ DET||Gronk got the Julio Jones treatment last week. Expect that to change against the Lions.|
|2||Travis Kelce||vs. SF||He's fresh off a pair of scores last week and safety Tartt (shoulder) is banged up.|
|3||Zach Ertz||vs. IND||He's a target-monster right now with Alshon Jeffery still out and Mike Wallace on IR.|
|4||George Kittle||@ KC||The Niners should be chasing, and I'm inclined to trust the production I saw in Week 1.|
|5||Evan Engram||@ HOU||He was limited in practice on Wednesday, but it appears to be a minor injury (ankle).|
|6||Trey Burton||@ ARI||It's possible A-Rob is slowed by Patrick Peterson, perhaps opening the door for Burton...|
|7||Jordan Reed||vs. GB||He's Jack Doyle sans the timeshare.|
|8||Kyle Rudolph||vs. BUF||He caught 7-of-8 balls against Green Bay last week and the matchup is a plus.|
|9||Jimmy Graham||@ WAS||The guy everyone said would score 10 billion touchdowns has precisely zero so far.|
|10||Jack Doyle||@ PHI||He's never off the field (58 snaps last week) so I still like him as a low-end TE1.|
|11||O.J. Howard||vs. PIT||The Steelers were gashed by Kelce last week (7-109-2).|
|12||Jared Cook||@ MIA||He followed up his Week 1 explosion by catching all four balls thrown his way last week.|
|13||Jesse James||@ TB||He exploded for 138 yards in Week 2 and has an epic matchup against the Bucs.|
|14||Eric Ebron||@ PHI||He is a red zone threat for Andrew Luck, like it or not.|
|15||David Njoku||vs. NYJ||The Jets have been stingy against tight ends so far--against Levine Toilolo and A.J. Derby...|
|16||Benjamin Watson||@ ATL||A few targets could pay off with Atlanta missing Pro Bowlers Keanu Neal and Deion Jones.|
|17||Austin Seferian-Jenkins||vs. TEN||I'm honestly just chasing a score, here. Hey, at least Bortles is hot, right?|
|18||Will Dissly||vs. DAL||This supposed "blocking specialist" keeps producing. DAL just allowed 7-67-1 to Engram.|
|19||Ricky Seals-Jones||vs. CHI||Not giving up on RSJ just yet. Bears allowed combined 6-65-1 to Dissly/Vannett last week.|
|20||Charles Clay||@ MIN||Jimmy Graham managed 95! receiving yards vs. MIN last week. Clay has to be considered.|
