    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.

    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. Gates is still far and away No. 1, with Green more of an upside dream than actual fantasy option. Rotoworld.com

    Antonio Gates (hamstring) is active for Monday night's Week 1 opener versus the Cardinals.

    Advice: Gates popped up on the injury report Saturday morning, and was a game-time decision. He's going to give it a go, but expect to see plenty of Ladarius Green. Inactive for the Chargers are S Jahleel Addae, NT Ryan Carrethers, CB Chris Davis, WR Dontrelle Inman, NT Ricardo Mathews, RB Branden Oliver, and LB Tourek Williams. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcedes Lewis has minor knee issue
    Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis has a "knee capsule injury," but is expected to be active for Week 2 against the Redskins.

    Advice: Lewis caught 6-of-9 targets for 35 yards in Sunday's opener, but will likely settle into the 4-6 target range. He's a low-end TE2. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Reed could be sidelined 'some time'
    Speaking Monday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Jordan Reed (hamstring) could be sidelined "some time."

    Advice: In the same breath, Gruden characterized the injury as "mild," but it sounds like Reed is dealing with a week-to-week injury. That means fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to be active for Week 2, and that Logan Paulsen will get the start for Washington. Reed is worth holding onto in 12-14 team leagues, but his injury history is becoming increasingly ominous. His status will be updated no later than the Redskins' Wednesday return to practice.

  • Ertz plays 60 percent of snaps in Week 1 win
    Zach Ertz played 52-of-87 (60 percent) of the offensive snaps in the Eagles' Week 1 win over Jacksonville.

    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

  • Coby Fleener struggles on Sunday night
    Coby Fleener had three catches for 21 yards in Sunday night's loss to Denver.

    Advice: Fleener was targeted more than Dwayne Allen, but saw fewer snaps. He couldn't come down with his lone red-zone target and dropped a pass that led to an interception in the fourth quarter. With Allen healthy, Fleener can continue to be left on the waiver-wire in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwayne Allen has strong 2014 debut
    Dwayne Allen caught 4-of-5 targets for 64 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 1 loss to the Broncos.

    Advice: Allen started over Coby Fleener, but both got heavy snaps in two-tight end formations. Fleener finished with more targets (8), but was less effective and struggled with drops. 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. Allen is the Colts' top red-zone threat and has potential to be the No. 3 option in the pass game, ahead of Hakeem Nicks. Rotoworld.com

  • Vernon Davis drops two TDs on Cowboys
    Vernon Davis caught 4-of-6 targets for 44 yards and two touchdowns in San Francisco's Week 1 rout of the Cowboys.

    Advice: One of the league's premier red-zone threats, Davis notched scores of 29 and two yards in the first quarter. Davis can be a disappointing fantasy play when he doesn't find the zone, but he does so with such regularity that he's an every-week TE1. Rotoworld.com

  • Seferian-Jenkins goes 1-26 in NFL debut
    Bucs rookie TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins secured his lone target for 26 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Panthers.

    Advice: "ASJ" appeared headed for a potentially big game when he ripped off the 26-yarder in the first quarter -- shedding several tackles -- but he wasn't targeted again. The Bucs need to get that fixed, as plodder Brandon Myers was targeted eight times. Seferian-Jenkins has a lot more playmaking ability. Rotoworld.com

  • TE Jordan Reed headed for MRI on hamstring
    Jordan Reed will have an MRI on his hamstring.

    Advice: Reed tried to hurdle a defender early in Sunday's Week 1 loss at Houston and pulled a muscle. Afterward, coach Jay Gruden called the injury a legit concern. It's another injury for Reed, who has battled all kinds of ailments dating back to his days at Florida. Owners should begin making other plans for Week 2. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcedes Lewis gets six catches in opener
    Marcedes Lewis caught six passes for 35 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss at Philadelphia.

    Advice: Lewis was the preferred target on low-upside bootlegs, finishing with nine passes coming his way. We'd be surprised if he ends up with that many targets again all year. An excellent blocker but plodding runner, Lewis is barely on the TE2 radar. Rotoworld.com

  • Brent Celek gets three catches in win
    Brent Celek caught three passes for 15 yards in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Jaguars.

    Advice: Celek was on the field for every "12" set and the majority of "11" formations. But Zach Ertz did sprinkle in for some single-TE snaps, and one of them resulted in a 25-yard score. Celek, a blocking complement to Ertz, is well off the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Cameron aggravates shoulder injury
    Jordan Cameron's shoulder injury is an aggravation of the sprained AC joint he suffered in training camp.

    Advice: Cameron went down in the third quarter of Sunday's loss. Cameron "doesn't know" how serious the injury might be. He missed roughly 10 days of camp when the issue first popped up in early August. It's an ominous development for an offense that has precious few receiving threats as it awaits word on Josh Gordon's (suspension) status. For now, Cameron should be considered day to day. He's a clear top-five fantasy tight end whenever he takes the field. Rotoworld.com

  • Zach Ertz puts 77 yards, TD on the Jaguars
    Zach Ertz caught three passes for 77 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Jaguars.

    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. A red-zone dominator with gobs of upside, Ertz will be a fine TE1 at Indy next week. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Reed hurts hamstring on hurdle play
    Jordan Reed (hamstring) left Sunday's Week 1 game against the Texans in the first half and is done for the day.

    Advice: Reed went high to hurdle a defender on a 4-yard reception, but got crunched and his legs bent the wrong way. He quickly grabbed for his hamstring and slowly made his way to the trainer's table. The Redskins have Logan Paulsen as their No. 2 TE behind the oft-injured Reed. Rotoworld.com
