Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Tight End Rankings Week 2

Austin Hooper caught a total of two passes in Week 1 but they went for 128 yards and a touchdown

Put your hand up if you had Austin Hooper and Jesse James as the top two scoring tight ends in fantasy football after Week 1?


It wasn’t a good week for the upper echelon of fantasy tight ends. But that happens in fantasy football, especially with the tight end position.


You should never assume you are going to win the week because of your tight end, and you should never lose it because of your tight end.


Nevertheless, this is a bounce-back week for studs like Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce. But what about Hooper or James? Is either a must-start for this week? And where do Cameron Brate, Julius Thomas and O.J. Howard land after sitting out Week 1?
