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

Tight finish is historically one of many hardest positions to rank within the season’s opening week. You will have your handful of studs, however given the boom-or-bust nature of the place mixed with tough-to-project matchups, all the things after the very high is a guess. However as tough as it’s to rank this place in Week 1, placing collectively Week 2 fantasy TE rankings is even harder. It is easy to overreact to what we noticed in every groups’ opener, each when it comes to evaluating gamers/offenses and defensive matchups. 

When simply two TEs have greater than 80 yards (Dallas Goedert, Noah Fant), it is powerful to not rank them extremely, proper? And when somebody like Hayden Hurst barely will get any seems to be till the sport is properly out of hand, properly, he has to drop, does not he? Ditto for somebody like Evan Engram who manages simply eight yards. If these kinds of video games occurred in Week 7, we would not be so fast to anoint one participant a breakout and one other a bust, however when it occurs in Week 1, it is inevitable. 

WEEK 2 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Working again | Huge receiver | D/ST | Kicker

So, sure, we’re shifting Fant (@ Steelers) and Goedert (vs. Rams) up and Hurst @ Cowboys) and Engram (@ Bears) down, however we’re not overdoing it. All are nonetheless within the starter’s tier. We’re additionally not reacting too strongly to Washington giving up two TE touchdowns in Week 1. It is attainable we’re seeing the beginning of a season-long pattern that Arizona’s Dan Arnold will add to this week, however till we get extra knowledge, we will not advocate streaming a TE like Arnold towards Washington simply but. 

We all know issues will even out in Week 2, however we nonetheless favored what we noticed from Chris Herndon (vs. 49ers) and T.J. Hockenson (@ Packers) even when we do not like their Week 2 matchups. Conversely, we wish to see extra from Ian Thomas (@ Buccaneers) and C.J. Uzomah (@ Browns) earlier than we are able to advocate them in what look to be favorable matchups.

WEEK 2 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Working again | Huge receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker

In the end, it comes down to only how a lot you imagine in Week 1 outcomes, and whereas there is definitely one thing to be gleaned from the ultimate stat traces, we’ll proceed to take a cautious method and belief a number of the extra confirmed expertise/conditions. 

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