Week 2 Fantasy TE PPR Rankings: Should-starts, sleepers, potential busts at tight finish

Did the season’s opening week appear tamer for tight ends this yr? Certain, there have been some shock performances, corresponding to Dallas Goedert main the place in yards and guys like Logan Thomas and David Njoku stepping into the top zone, however we did not have many loopy good performances or enormous busts. It was principally a standard day on the workplace for this place, however consider it or not, that truly makes placing collectively our Week 2 fantasy TE PPR rankings a bit harder.

We had been able to overreact — able to declare sure defenses favorable or unfavorable matchups for TEs — however we did not get a lot to work with. We’re not going to fret about George Kittle regardless of a disappointing Week 1, similar to we’re not going to get too enthusiastic about Jordan Akins simply because he scored. Not the whole lot went as anticipated — Hayden Hurst barely getting any seems to be till the fourth quarter was worrisome, as was Rob Gronkowski’s less-than-stellar effort. Austin Hooper additionally appeared like an afterthought on his new crew. We’re not prepared to jot down all of these guys off, however all are falling on this week’s rankings.

WEEK 2 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Operating again | Vast receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker

Conversely, Goedert is shifting up after wanting higher than Zach Ertz. O.J. Howard can also be on the rise, although we’re not bought on his consistency since he largely produced after the Bucs had been down a number of scores late within the recreation. We had been happy by the variety of targets Darren Waller (eight), Hunter Henry (eight), and Jared Prepare dinner (7) had although none bought in the long run zone. Chris Herndon (7) and Logan Thomas (eight) are additionally extra on the radar, not less than in PPR leagues, however we’re not able to anoint both as starters simply but. 

WEEK 2 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Operating again | Vast receiver | D/ST | Kicker

Likelihood is, we’ll see some surprises in Week 2, so we’re taking a conservative strategy to those rankings. The jury continues to be out on sure defenses, however Washington, Detroit, and Tampa seemed like they may have hassle with TEs all season. We’re not letting Arizona off the hook but after final yr’s traditionally dangerous displaying, however we’re nonetheless not rating an excessive amount of primarily based on matchups. For now, we’ll (largely) follow the confirmed producers and progressively consider traits we see in the course of the video games. 

We’ll proceed to replace our tight finish PPR rankings to all through the week, so test again for updates.
