Player Notes

  • Mo Alie-Cox scores TD in second straight
    Mo Alie-Cox caught all three of his targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the 49ers.

    Advice: It's the second straight game Alie-Cox has found the end-zone. He has at least 50 yards or a touchdown the last four weeks and has done enough to remain a low-end TE1/high-end TE2. Alie-Cox has a shy away Week 8 matchup with a Titans secondary that's allowed the second-fewest points to opposing tight ends.

  • Seals-Jones sees seven targets in Week 7 loss
    Ricky Seals-Jones caught 6-of-7 targets for 51 yards in Washington's Week 7 loss to Green Bay.

    Advice: RSJ's targets and receiving yards finished second on the team behind Terry McLaurin's, an encouraging sign after Seals-Jones was on the team's injury report with a bruised quad throughout the week. An every-down option with at least six targets the past three games, it's possible Logan Thomas (hamstring) forces Seals-Jones back to the bench when eligible to return in Week 8. It's something to monitor before Washington's matchup against Denver as whoever starts between the two will qualify as a usage-based high-end option. Yesterday, 7:17 pm

  • Jesse James records three receptions vs. Bucs
    Jesse James caught all three of his targets for 20 yards in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Bucs. 

    Advice: James played behind Cole Kmet and ahead of Jimmy Graham, seeing his first targets of the regular season. James, a well-traveled veteran who demonstrated chemistry with Justin Fields in the preseason, should remain on waiver wires unless Kmet misses time. Yesterday, 6:33 pm

  • Cole Kmet leads Bears with five catches vs. TB
    Cole Kmet caught 5-of-6 targets for 43 yards in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Bucs. 

    Advice: Kmet led the team in targets and receptions in an absolutely hideous day for Chicago's offense. He dropped an early would-be first down reception but made up for it with a 22-yard grab against a Bucs secondary that's given up decent production to nearly every tight end they've faced. Kmet, with 11 targets over the past two games, is running enough pass routes and seeing just enough targets to be a high-end TE2 against the 49ers next week. Yesterday, 6:22 pm

  • O.J. Howard has one catch in Week 7 vs. Bears
    O.J. Howard caught 1-of-3 targets for nine yards in the Bucs' Week 7 win against the Bears. 

    Advice: Neither Howard nor Cameron Brate -- zero catches on four targets -- were utilized with Rob Gronkowski sidelined with a rib injury. Howard's performance was disappointing coming off his six-catch, 49 yard, one-touchdown outing against the Eagles last week. He'll continue splitting routes and targets with Brate in Week 8 against the Saints if Gronk remains sidelined. Yesterday, 6:18 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Cameron Brate goes catchless on four targets
    Cameron Brate was held without a catch in the Bucs' Week 7 win against the Bears. 

    Advice: Brate, who has ceded a lot of routes and targets to O.J. Howard over the past couple weeks, couldn't reel in any of his four targets against Chicago. Tom Brady spotted Brate open in the end zone in the second half, but the ball was tipped by a Bears lineman and fell to the turf before Brate could get to it. Brate will be a touchdown-or-bust fantasy play in Week 8 against New Orleans. Yesterday, 6:13 pm

  • Tyler Higbee posts 46 yards vs. Lions
    Tyler Higbee caught 5-of-8 targets for 46 yards in the Rams' Week 7 win over the Lions. 

    Advice: The 46 yards were Higbee's most since his 68-yard Week 1, which tells you all you need to know about the ceiling he has demonstrated in 2021. It has been difficult for any Ram not named Cooper Kupp or Darrell Henderson to get theirs even as this offense rolls. Higbee has at least kept his floor nice and tidy by catching four-plus passes in 5-of-7 appearances. Week 8 opponent Houston is one of the league's worst tight end defenses. Yesterday, 5:06 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • T.J. Hockenson goes 6/48 in Los Angeles
    T.J. Hockenson caught 6-of-8 targets for 48 yards in the Lions' Week 7 loss to the Rams. 

    Advice: Hockenson now has 14 catches over his past two games after being held to eight between Weeks 3-5. One of his missed connections was a doomed end zone target where Jalen Ramsey ran Hock's route for him as Jared Goff tossed up a wounded dove in the face of the rush. Hock has cleared 70 yards one time since his 8/97/1 Week 1, leaving him little ceiling to go along with a strong floor. An Eagles defense that is soft up the seam is on tap for Week 8.

  • Goedert goes 3-70 in first game without Zach Ertz
    Dallas Goedert caught 3-of-5 targets for 70 yards in the Eagles' Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

    Advice: Goedert added a two-point conversion catch in the fourth quarter to his stat line. No other tight end saw a target for the Eagles in this game. It was exactly the night we wanted to see after Philadelphia traded Zach Ertz to the Cardinals, giving Goedert an every-down role. Going forward, Goedert will project as a top-10 tight end with elite upside. He gets a solid matchup versus the Lions next week. Yesterday, 4:58 pm

  • Ertz leads Cards with 3-66-1, 47-yard TD in debut
    Zach Ertz caught 3-of-4 targets for 66 yards and one touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 7 win over the Texans.

    Advice: Making his debut with the team after last week's trade, Ertz saw all four tight-end targets for Arizona and led the team with 66 yards. His touchdown was a wide-open 47-yarder over the middle, the longest touchdown of Ertz's storied career. Ertz will be a weekly back-end TE1 in Arizona and gets the Packers this coming Thursday night. Yesterday, 4:29 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Foster Moreau posts 6-60-1 line in place of Waller
    Foster Moreau caught all six of his targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Eagles.

    Advice: Moreau started for the Raiders with Darren Waller picking up an ankle injury late in the week. The third-year tight end picked up his ninth career touchdown on a red zone strike from Derek Carr. Despite being phased out of the offense after his rookie season, Moreau has popped up with the random red zone score four times over the past two years. He'll return to his limited role once Waller is back on the field but should provide serviceable TE2 production until then. Yesterday, 4:29 pm

  • Tonyan (4/63/1) sits up like the Undertaker in win
    Robert Tonyan caught 4-of-5 targets for 63 yards and one score in Green Bay's Week 7 win against Washington.

    Advice: It was the second consecutive game Tonyan soaked up a double-digit target share (14.2%), finishing third on the team in targets behind Davante Adams (7) and Allen Lazard (6). His second touchdown of the year — his first since Week 2 — was a 20-yard end zone target to open the second half, chipping a bull-rushing end before beating LB Jamin Davis upfield. If Aaron Rodgers continues dispersing targets evenly, Tonyan has a chance to continue his streak of opportunity in Week 9 against the Cardinals. Yesterday, 3:33 pm

  • Josh Oliver catches two for 29 yards vs. Bengals
    Josh Oliver caught 2-of-5 targets for 29 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Bengals. 

    Advice: Averaging just seven pass routes per game headed into Week 7, Oliver was more heavily involved in a decidedly pass-heavy game script against the Bengals. The preseason standout saw a season high five targets and now has seven receptions on the year. He would be an interesting waiver add if Mark Andrews were to miss time this season. Yesterday, 3:25 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Jonnu Smith goes for 52 yards, injures shoulder
    Jonnu Smith caught 2-of-5 targets for 52 yards in the Patriots' Week 7 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Smith exited the game with a shoulder injury and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. His status will need to be monitored in practice next week. If he's unable to go next week, it could open up routes for Hunter Henry in his revenge game against the Chargers in Week 8. Yesterday, 2:22 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Hunter Henry scores for fourth-straight game
    Hunter Henry caught 2-of-4 targets for 23 yards and one touchdown in the Patriots' Week 7 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Henry wasn't heavily involved, but he's now the first Patriots' tight end since Rob Gronkowski to score a TD in four straight game. Jonnu Smith was knocked out of the game with a shoulder injury, so Henry could see more routes going forward. Henry will be a high end TE2 in a revenge game against the Chargers in Week 8. Yesterday, 2:19 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Mark Andrews comes back to earth in Week 7 loss
    Mark Andrews caught 3-of-7 targets for 48 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Bengals. 

    Advice: Andrews probably could have added a couple catches if Baltimore's starters hadn't been pulled in a blowout loss to their division rival. Lamar Jackson's No. 2 target came back to earth after a red-hot past couple weeks that included 16 receptions and three touchdowns. Andrews drafters will have to stream a tight end off the waiver wire during the Ravens' Week 8 bye. Andrews will again be a plug-and-play TE1 in Week 9 against the Vikings in a potential shootout. Yesterday, 2:19 pm

  • Mike Gesicki stays hot with 7/85/1 vs. Falcons
    Mike Gesicki caught 7-of-8 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to the Falcons. 

    Advice: Gesicki tied Jaylen Waddle for the team lead in targets and receptions but narrowly out-gained him while being the only one of the two to find the end zone. Gesicki is now up to 15/200/1 over his past two contests, and has cleared 85 yards in 3-of-7 appearances. He has drawn at least six targets every game since Week 2, and is averaging eight over his past three starts. He is a top-six TE1 any way you slice it, though DeVante Parker might finally be back from his marathon injury in Week 8. The Dolphins will be visiting the Bills, who have not been permissive up the seam. Yesterday, 1:52 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Evan Engram turns 8 targets into 6-44-0 line
    Evan Engram caught 6-of-8 targets for 44 yards in the Giants' Week 7 win over the Panthers.

    Advice: The Giants were without Kadarius Toney, Sterlin Shepard, and Kenny Golladay for this game. Engram operated as a primary target for Daniel Jones alongside Darius Slayton, who led the team with nine targets. Despite the extra volume, Engram a low-target-depth safety valve, capping his ceiling on every target. He'll continue to hold PPR value as long as the Giants are short on receivers but he'll rejoin the ranks of the TE2 options sooner rather than later. Yesterday, 1:50 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Firkser catches one pass in win over Chiefs
    Anthony Firkser caught his only target for nine yards in the Titans' Week 7 win over the Chiefs.

    Advice: Firkser has 11 catches on the season and isn't a fantasy option despite the offseason hype. He's splitting reps with Geoff Swaim and MyCole Pruitt, who caught a five-yard score in this one. Yesterday, 1:30 pm
    Week 7 Projected Rank
  • Kelce paces Chiefs with 7-65 on 12 targets in loss
    Travis Kelce caught 7-of-12 targets for 65 yards in the Chiefs' Week 7 loss to the Titans.

    Advice: Kelce had two catches for 11 yards on a pair of targets at halftime, as Patrick Mahomes entered the break with five completions for 41 yards. Kelce racked up 10 targets in garbage-time, comeback mode and paced the team in targets and catches. Kelce has just one touchdown over his last five games. He gets a get-right spot against the Giants in Week 8. Yesterday, 1:20 pm
