  • Zach Ertz plays more snaps than Celek
    Zach Ertz played on 52-of-68 snaps in Monday night's win over the Colts.

    Advice: Ertz played 41 percent of the snaps as a rookie, 60 percent in Week 1 and now 76 percent in Week 2. It obviously helped that the Eagles trailed for just about the entire game, but featuring Ertz is not rocket science. He's turned 10 targets into a 7-163-1 line so far, showing unique body control and agility at 6'5/250. Ertz's target count should only keep growing. Rotoworld.com

    Dwayne Allen didn't catch a pass in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

    Advice: Allen saw just one target on the night, but he blocked his butt off in the run game. He lost out to third-string TE Jack Doyle on a two-yard touchdown in the second quarter. OC Pep Hamilton and the coaches simply don't realize Allen's skill level as an all-around tight end. He'll get the Jaguars in Week 3. Rotoworld.com

  • Zach Ertz catches four balls for 81 yards
    Zach Ertz caught 4-of-6 targets for 81 yards in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts on Monday night.

    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.

    Vernon Davis is undergoing an MRI on his left ankle.

    Advice: Davis suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss, and was spotted on crutches afterward. It's quite possible he has a high-ankle sprain, which would sideline him in the neighborhood of four weeks.

    Advice: We presume Gruden would have expressed more optimism if he thought Reed had a chance to play. Regardless, it's good news that the notion of Reed practicing at all this week is on the table. If Reed returns, Week 2 breakout TE Niles Paul's snaps would likely take a major hit.

It's a tough pill to swallow for the Jags, who were already lacking weapons and now lose a security blanket in the pass game.

    Advice: Andy Reid realized he made a mistake by only using Kelce on 18-of-58 snaps in Week 1. This time, he called far more "12" sets and Kelce responded by going 4-81-0 on six targets. "He's young," Reid said afterward. "We've just got to keep him coming, but he sure had some nice plays." It's obvious that if the Chiefs are going to move the ball, Kelce is going to need to be a big part of it. His time as a TE1 is coming sooner rather than later. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Gronkowski played on just 28-of-67 snaps Sunday as the Patriots coasted to a 30-7 win at Minnesota. This comes on the heels of a 38-of-86 Week 1 snap count. It's a reminder that he's still rounding into form just like last season, although it's worth noting that a knee reconstruction is far different than the elbow issue he battled in 2013.

Davis secured all three of his targets for 39 yards prior to going down. There's a chance Davis may be dealing with a high-ankle sprain, which would cost him multiple weeks. Rotoworld.com

    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: He was targeted just once. Ryan Fitzpatrick only needed 19 pass attempts as the Texans ripped open the Raiders' defense with their running game, so this may not have provided an accurate read on Graham's role. Graham does appear to be "competing" for targets with DeAndre Hopkins behind Andre Johnson. Johnson was thrown to on seven occasions Sunday, while Hopkins saw five targets. Rotoworld.com

Graham was targeted a game-high 13 times on the afternoon, beating Joe Haden for a nine-yard touchdown on a jump ball end-zone fade ahead of halftime. He later beat Haden again to directly set up Mark Ingram's one-yard score. Graham beat Buster Skrine for a one-yard score on a rollout play in the third quarter.

  • RGIII confirms Reed (hammy) will miss Week 2
    Robert Griffin III told the media Wednesday that Jordan Reed (hamstring) will not play Week 2 against the Jaguars.

    Advice: As expected. "He's a big loss, a great player," RGIII said. Reed's status beyond Week 2 remains up in the air. Coach Jay Gruden said Monday that Reed would be sidelined "some time." Logan Paulsen will be called on to block in Week 2, while Niles Paul is expected to play a bigger role in the passing game. The Jaguars were shredded by tight ends in 2013 and gave up a 6-91-1 line to Eagles tight ends last Sunday. It's a tough game for Reed owners to miss out on. Rotoworld.com

  • Ladarius Green played 24 snaps on Monday
    Ladarius Green played just 24-of-62 offensive snaps in Monday night's Week 1 loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Green was asked to block on 17 of those and ran just seven pass routes, catching both of his targets for a total of 24 yards. The Chargers mind-numbingly continue to prefer to use Eddie Royal as their slot receiver. He caught just 1-of-6 targets against Arizona and dropped three passes. Green would be a matchup nightmare out of the slot, but coach Mike McCoy seems to be the only one who doesn't know it. Green will likely block a ton in Week 2 versus Seattle. Rotoworld.com

  • Larry Donnell played on 52-of-60 snaps Monday
    Giants TE Larry Donnell played on 52-of-60 snaps in Monday night's loss to the Lions.

    Advice: The Giants held an open competition all offseason at the tight end spot. It took until Week 1 for us to get an answer, but we now know that Donnell is the guy. He's a slow-footed former UDFA, but the Giants' offensive line is so bad that Eli Manning will need to be dumping the ball quickly to his tight end. Donnell has a realistic shot at something like the 604 yards and four scores Jake Ballard had in 2011, or the 626 yards and five touchdowns Martellus Bennett had in 2012. Donnell will be a better bet this week than most as he gets to face an Arizona defense that is inept at covering the tight end. Rotoworld.com

  • Ladarius Green catches both MNF targets
    Ladarius Green caught both of his targets for 24 yards in San Diego's Week 1 loss to Arizona on Monday night.

    Advice: Green got the start in a two-tight end set, but played awfully sparingly in the first half. He came out with the starters again to open the second half, playing a handful of snaps, before again heading to the bench. For some reason, the coaches feel the need to play Eddie Royal over talented Green. When Green is in the game, it gives the defense another weapon to worry about. Teams don't fear drop-prone Royal. Green is merely a back-end TE2. Rotoworld.com

    Larry Donnell caught five passes for 56 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 1 loss to the Lions on Monday night.

    Advice: Donnell led the Giants in every receiving category and saw a team-high eight targets. Eli Manning has always loved throwing to his tight end, and Donnell appears to be the guy right now. But we're not rushing to the waiver wire for him by any means. Eli's timing is off with his receivers, so he's hitting Donnell for simple gains. Manning targeted Donnell on two end-zone fades, completing one for a one-yard score. Donnell is a back-end low-upside TE2. Rotoworld.com

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. Playing 60 percent of the snaps is an increase on his 41-percent usage as a rookie. Fire Ertz up as a TE1 for Week 2 against the Colts. Rotoworld.com

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.

    Making his first appearance since tearing his ACL last December, Rob Gronkowski caught 4-of-11 targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 1 loss to the Dolphins.

    Advice: Gronk's six-yard touchdown in the second quarter was the Pats' only passing score of the afternoon. He was indeed on a snap count, but checked in for nearly all third downs and red-zone situations, as evidenced by his 11 targets. That's the good news. The bad news is, Gronk appeared much stiffer than we're used to seeing, lumbering more than loping down the field. It's to be expected for a player returning from a severe knee injury, but it's going to take Gronk much longer to get all the way back to 100 percent. Despite all that, he's a clear top-three tight end, and the Pats' No. 1 red-zone threat. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The breakout is on. Ertz only saw five targets in a predictably "spread the wealth" passing attack, but he dominated the seam while lining up both as an in-line tight end and in the slot. Most importantly, he got some reps in "11" personnel while Brent Celek stood on the sideline -- and scored his touchdown out of that formation.

    Advice: Gresham frustrated Andy Dalton on his first target, refusing to keep running to where Dalton was pointing on a red-zone pass, which ultimately fell incomplete. Gresham bounced back on a perfectly designed tight end screen to pick up a big first down on a 12-yard second-quarter gain.
