Travis Kelce: Tight End Rankings Week 1

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?
