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.

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.

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.

  • Reid admits Kelce ready for bigger workload
    Speaking Monday, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said TE Travis Kelce is "capable of playing more than 18 plays."

    Advice: It's Reid way of admitting he screwed up, and tacit acknowledgment that Kelce should have a bigger role going forward. This being Reid, we're not expecting anything crazy to happen overnight, but the Chiefs have to realize they need Kelce's playmaking ability. We'd expect a gradual increase in usage, but enough to keep things interesting for fantasy owners. Kelce is worth holding onto in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kelce only plays 20 offensive snaps in Week 1
    Travis Kelce played just 20-of-58 offensive snaps in the Chiefs' Week 1 loss to the Titans.

    Advice: Kelce still saw five targets, but the 34 percent usage rate isn't enough to vault Kelce above mid-range TE2 status. He remains behind Anthony Fasano on the depth chart. We know coach Andy Reid's loves his veterans. With Dwayne Bowe coming back for Week 2, Kelce isn't start-able in fantasy at the moment. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Gronkowski plays 44 percent of Week 1 snaps
    Rob Gronkowski played 38-of-86 (44 percent) of the offensive snaps in the Patriots' Week 1 loss to the Dolphins.

    Advice: Gronkowski still managed to lead the team with 11 targets in the passing game, securing four of them for 40 yards and a score. He didn't play much on early downs, instead coming onto the field for all third downs and red-zone situations. Gronk also didn't look to be 100 percent, which is to be expected. Even if he remains "limited" in games, Gronkowski is a must-start TD scorer. 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

    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

    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

  • Travis Kelce has quiet NFL debut
    Travis Kelce secured 3-of-5 targets for 49 yards in the Chiefs' Week 1 loss to Tennessee.

    Advice: Making his NFL debut, Kelce was not an every-down player despite the absence of Dwayne Bowe (suspension), remaining a role player in two-tight end sets opposite Anthony Fasano. Fasano finished with a 3-29-1 stat line on six targets. Kelce remains a dynamic talent, but until we see him playing and getting targeted more, he can only be viewed as a TE2 in fantasy leagues.

  • Martellus Bennett goes off for 71 yards, TD
    Martellus Bennett had eight catches for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 1 loss to Buffalo.

    Advice: Bennett was a mismatch for Buffalo's undersized secondary. He beat LB Preston Brown on a 12-yard catch for his touchdown in the first quarter. The majority of his yardage came in the second half, when Alshon Jeffery went down with a hamstring injury. Both of Cutler's interceptions came on passes intended for Bennett. He finished behind only Brandon Marshall with 10 targets. Bennett will be a borderline TE1 for next week's game with the 49ers. Rotoworld.com

    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

    Jared Cook caught four passes for 56 yards in the Rams' Week 1 loss to the Vikings.

    Advice: Cook was targeted eight times on the day, finishing one target behind Brian Quick for the team lead. While Quick did most of his work in the deep part of the field, Cook saw most of the short-to-intermediate looks. The 4-56 receiving line should be what we expect most weeks out of Cook. He's the second or third option in the passing game and a middle-of-the-road TE2. Rotoworld.com

    Jimmy Graham caught eight passes for 82 yards against the Falcons.

    Advice: It was a bit of a disappointing day, but the fact that 16 PPR points is a disappointment speaks to how good Graham is. The Saints offense moved the ball well against Atlanta, and on a different day Graham could have had a couple scores. He is still locked in as the No. 1 fantasy tight end, and is obviously a must start against the Browns Week 2. Rotoworld.com

  • Rob Gronkowski scores touchdown in return
    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

  • 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

    A league source confirms to PFT that Rob Gronkowski (knee) is expected to play on a limited basis Sunday.

    Advice: As we've known since Monday, Gronk's snaps are going to be limited. But owners should note that in his first game off an elbow injury last year, he racked up an 8-114-0 line on 17 targets while playing on just 35-of-68 snaps. Gronkowski, who was not hosting a party in Miami on Saturday night despite internet rumors, needs to be in fantasy lineups despite the volume risks. Rotoworld.com
