  • Jordan Cameron appears likely to play Week 3
    The Akron Beacon Journal suggests Jordan Cameron (shoulder) "probably has a good shot at playing" in Week 3 against Baltimore.

    Advice: Cameron returned to a limited practice Wednesday after sitting out all of last week. "[My shoulder] feels good," Cameron said after the practice. "It feels better. ... I'm going to wake up in the morning, and we'll take it from there." Cameron aggravated an August shoulder injury on a 47-yard reception in the Browns' opener. Cameron finished 2013 with 80 catches for 917 yards and seven touchdowns, going to the Pro Bowl as a 25-year-old first-year starter. When healthy, he is an elite fantasy tight end. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Outside of Darren Sproles, Ertz was the Eagles' leading receiver. But after playing 60 percent of the snaps in Week 1, we'd bet that number dipped in Week 2. He just wasn't on the field enough despite making highlight-reel catches when he did touch the ball. Ertz had a big catch on a 3rd-and-11 when he went up and got the ball to set up LeSean McCoy's one-yard touchdown. He's a back-end TE1 thanks to his playmaking ability, but we want to see more usage.

    Travis Kelce caught four passes for a team-high 81 yards in the Chiefs' Week 2 loss to the Broncos.

    Advice: After playing just 18 snaps in the opener, Kelce possibly doubled that on Sunday. He was a big part of the offense, especially on third down and in the red zone. Kelce was targeted six times and caught three balls on third downs to move the chains. His big grab on 3rd-and-13 set up one of Knile Davis' two scores. Kelce is on the brink of breaking out, and he brings an energy to the offense. Keep stashing Kelce as a high-upside TE2. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Gates' vise-like mitts were the reason the Chargers were able to play keep away and upend the defending champs. Two of his scoring grabs came on third down, while the third came on a 2nd-and-20. Gates' third TD was a one-handed circus catch perhaps 3-4 other players in the NFL are capable of making. Even at 34, his hands are just unfathomably strong. Gates' big day came as backup Ladarius Green received zero targets. Whatever questions there were at tight end for the Chargers have been answered.

    Browns coach Mike Pettine said Friday that he's still "holding hope" Jordan Cameron (shoulder, questionable) will play Sunday against the Saints despite missing practice all this week.

    Advice: As the injury has dogged Cameron since August, it would probably be in fantasy owners' best interest for the Browns to hold out Cameron for at least one game in order to get the shoulder right. We still suspect Cameron is on the doubtful side of questionable. He may come down to a game-time decision. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: After missing Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday's sessions, Cameron is shaping up as an extreme long shot to face the Saints in Week 2. Look for Jim Dray and Gary Barnidge to share tight end duties versus New Orleans. Neither is a fantasy option. We'd rather stream Larry Donnell or Brandon Myers this week. Rotoworld.com

Just seeing how it feels when I wake up, and we'll go from there." Cameron insists the shoulder injuries aren't "chronic," deeming the aggravation "kind of an unlucky deal." Cameron is questionable for Week 2. Fantasy owners shouldn't mind if the Browns hold him out against the Saints in an effort to keep Cameron healthy for a sustained stretch. Rotoworld.com

    Speaking Monday, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said TE Travis Kelce is "capable of playing more than 18 plays."

This being Reid, we're not expecting anything crazy to happen overnight, but the Chiefs have to realize they need Kelce's playmaking ability.

    Advice: Ertz started in the slot, but moved around the formation. He saw just five targets, but turned them into three catches for 77 yards and one touchdown. The Jaguars were one of the worst teams when it came to defending tight ends in 2013, but Ertz is a red-zone dominator who has six touchdowns in his last ten games.

Allen took an out route 41 yards down the sideline for his touchdown. He's on the TE2 radar and is worth a look on waivers.
