Tight End Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 2

Kyle Pitts, Atlanta Falcons

Kyle Pitts should fare better after a quiet Week 1 performance.

When looking at the tight ends who scored the most fantasy points in Week 1, the list is a bit surprising. Travis Kelce leads the way (not a surprise), followed by O.J. Howard (two targets, two receptions, two touchdowns), and Taysom Hill (four carries for 81 yards and a touchdown). This is a bit abnormal as tight ends typically catch the ball, not run with it, but fantasy managers should take points wherever they can get them. Hill is a nice option at tight end (if he's eligible there) since he can be used as a QB too, but is ranked No. 19 for Week 2 as he may not find the end zone each week.

Kyle Pitts was a disappointment in Week 1, but this was mostly because of Marcus Mariota's play and the defensive attention that he drew. The Falcons need rookie wide receiver Drake London to get healthy, and this will help Pitts' fantasy value as well. He is ranked No. 2 this week, but that may be a bit high.
