    Your Dallas Cowboys Tight End

    Jason Witten

    Expert Consensus Ranking: 9
    My Ranking: 7

    Cowboys Headlines - ESPN Marks Jason Witten as Future Cowboys Head Coach 1It's unlikely is going to see 14 targets again in week two against the . I do think he continues to see 8-10 targets a game.

    The veteran still has the ability to get open regularly and is a sure-handed pass catcher (when he doesn't have to look into the sun).

    In week one against the , the Washington Redskins allowed second year tight end Jesse James to catch five passes for 31 yards. James had a long of eight yards. Seems like he and Jason Witten work in the same part of the field; the short to intermediate areas.

    In 24 starts against the Washington Redskins, Jason Witten averages:

    • 7.1 targets
    • 4.95 receptions
    • 55 yards
    • 0.33 touchdowns

    I see Witten as a must-start this week across all formats. With Dak Prescott looking his way often, Witten could be up for a really good day.

    One to Start

    Jesse James, Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cincinnati Bengals

    Expert Consensus Ranking: 14
    My Ranking: 13

    Fantasy Football - Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings - Week 2
    A Regular Season game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the on Sunday November 8th 2015. The Steelers defeated the Raiders 38-35.

    The above mentioned Jesse James has really gained the trust of the staff in the last couple of months. With Ladarius Green hindered by nagging , James has taken advantage of his opportunities.

    will often look to the second year tight end in the short .

    In week one, Jesse James saw seven targets, catching five passes for 35 yards. Not gaudy numbers, but in his first career start, they are serviceable.

    I expect the will put more effort into taking out of the game. They'll shade a over the top or a underneath, which will open things up for James.

    Flawless Forecast: nine targets, six catches, 75 yards, one touchdown.

    Fantasy Football - Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings - Week 2 1One to Sit

    Antonio Gates, San Diego Chargers vs Jacksonville Jaguars

    Expert Consensus Ranking: 7
    My Ranking: 13

    Things have certainly changed for over the last couple of years.

    On Sunday versus the , Gates only saw four targets. He caught three passes for 20 yards, and zero touchdowns.

    Health and declining ability have been concerns for him over the last several years. Antonio Gates is now 36 years old, and the athleticism that has allowed him to win for years in the NFL is fading.

    He wasn't the primary target in San Diego before or after star Keenan Allen was lost for the year.

    For his career against the (eight games), he averages 4.6 catches on 6.5 targets for about 50 yards and almost one touchdown. The last time he played them was in 2015, but he has had health issues and is another year older now.

    I'm looking for another option to start at tight end in week two.

    Flawless Forecast: three catches for 35 yards, and zero touchdowns.
