Week 3 Tight Ends

TE Notes: It was encouraging week 2 for Darren Waller, who became isolated on a linebacker in the red zone and was promptly found for a touchdown by Derek Carr. With Davante Adam’s terrifying opposing defenses in the painted area, Waller won’t be short on plus looks. … George Kittle (groin) finally looks set to make his 2022 debut. With Jimmy Garoppolo in the middle and the 49ers who may want to ease the pressure/blocking pressure on Kittle as he returns to game form, one can hope his primary Week 3 contributions are in the receiving game. … Falcons coach Arthur Smith has been particularly defensive about his use of Kyle Pitts. It doesn’t seem like the man necessarily knows how to drive his Lamborghini with gearshift. Hopefully this belief is not blind, but it is impossible to believe that the big game is not coming. … Dallas Goedert’s 10 targets aren’t blowing the doors off the barn, but he turned them into 142 yards in this high-functioning attack. The commanders are a good matchup.

Healthy in week 2, Zach Ertz ordered 11 goals. Kyler Murray has nowhere better to funnel the ball. … Pat Freiermuth was one of the Steelers’ only bright spots. Expect Mitch Trubisky to keep checking. … With Amon-Ra St. Brown and D’Andre Swift making the Lions’ attack more dynamic, TJ Hockenson seems to be establishing itself as an ‘aisle cleanup three’ target compiler. … With the Rams’ attack running low on ideas, “lots of Tyler Higbee targets” are currently taking the day. The Cardinals bled fantasy points to Travis Kelce and Darren Waller in weeks 1 and 2. Those tight ends are good, of course. … Gerald Everett, frustrating as he is, is put in a better position to make plays than Dawson Knox. As feared, Knox orders no bigger target to offset what was anything but a sure touchdown regression. … With the commanders breaking it down like few teams in the league, Logan Thomas incorporates a lot of cheap looks.

Speaking of cheap looks, Evan Engram hosted them in Jacksonville. The Jags have positioned Engram to contribute meters after the capture. … Irv Smith showed signs of life in week 2. It was just in time for what fantasy managers hope is a pointsapalooza with the Lions this week. … Hunter Henry found milk in his pack during two games. With there being so little to call home in the TE12-20 range, I feel compelled to bet Henry’s red zone looks will return eventually. … As long as Joe Flacco starts and puts in at least 44 tries, Tyler Conklin will provide usage-based TE2 appeal. … Cole Kmet’s donuts are a fluke. The bigger problem is that he will have a nonexistent ceiling if the Bears don’t let Justin Fields throw at least 25 times per game. There is no indication that this is in the offing. … Mike Gesicki only resurfaces because he has some playmaking ability in what will be a weeklong bout of spikes. … Nothing has changed for David Njoku. … Juwan Johnson positions itself for TE2 weeks.
