2013 Fantasy Football TE Rankings – Week 2

Sep 10, 2013


.
With an exciting opening week of football under our belts, here are the Lester’s Legends 2013 Week 2 fantasy football tight end rankings.
.
1. Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints
Graham had four catches for 45 yards and a score. Not a huge start, but he’s always a threat to score. Look for a big game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
.
2. Vernon Davis, San Francisco 49ers
Davis had 98 yards and two touchdowns as Colin Kaepernick went his way often. He’s a tough cover, even for the Seattle Seahawks.
.
3. Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys
It’s not surprising that Witten finished with 70 yards. It is surprising that he scored a pair of touchdowns. He is a good bet for receptions and yards. If he can get in the end zone, his value will skyrocket. Witten faces the Kansas City Chiefs this week.
.
4. Tony Gonzalez, Atlanta Falcons
Gonzo continues to deliver despite his age. He had 36 yards and a touchdown. He should see more looks against the St. Louis Rams with Roddy White (ankle) limited.
.
5. Julius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Thomas exploded on the scene with 110 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He faces the New York Giants, who got shredded by Witten last week.
.
6. Jared Cook, St. Louis Rams
Cook is a freak athlete that is finally getting to shine in St. Louis. He had 141 yards and two touchdowns in the opener. He faces the Falcons, who yielded a touchdown to Jimmy Graham last week.
.
7. Jordan Cameron, Cleveland Browns
Cameron had nine catches for 108 yards and a touchdown. He faces the Baltimore Ravens, who were last seen making Julius Thomas a fantasy star.
.
8. Owen Daniels, Houston Texans
Daniels caught five passes for 67 yards and two touchdowns. Next up is the Tennessee Titans.
.
9. Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers
Olsen had five grabs for 56 yards. With Steve Smith being the only other viable option, Olsen should be heavily targeted against the Buffalo Bills.
.
10. Jermichael Finley, Green Bay Packers
Finley had five catches for 56 yards and a touchdown. He is a great athlete. He should be solid against the Washington Redskins as long as his hands don’t fail him.

    I have Cameron starting over Bowe and Torrey for my flex spot, good idea?

    Not a bad idea. I have Bowe and Torrey as low end WR2s and Cameron as a middle TE1.

    I was able to snag Julius Thomas in two PPR leagues: In one I’m going to sit Kyle Rudolph and start Julius, the other league is my question: Graham is the TE but with the addition of Julius I’m debating a flex and WR spot. Starting receivers- Jordy Nelson & Steve Smith. Who do you fill the last WR spot and flex with- Michael Floyd, Brian Hartline, Malcom Floyd, Julius Thomas, Kyle Rudolph. Thanks!

    Vernon Davis or Jordan Cameron? Nervous about rolling Davis vs Seattle… thoughts?

    VD. He’s just a beast and has a much better QB situation.

    I wouldn’t hold all three as they basically give you the same thing. I like Celek a little more than the other two.

    Lester – what are your thoughts regarding fantasypro’s start/sit tool? For PPR settings 63% say Hartline over Michael Floyd. I know you like Floyd over Hartline but I didn’t see you on either side. Last year I saw you on there a lot. Thanks..

    AND FYI- I meant to post that in the WR section, my bad…

    I like that tool. I think Hartline takes a step back as Wallace gets more this week.

    I haven’t loaded my rankings in their site yet this year. been too busy.

    If I sit him I guess I hope that happens but for Wallace to cry like a baby was a joke in my opinion. Thanks again

    Of course Wallace is gonna cry. He got locked down by Joe Haden…again. Last 3 games Wallace has been held in check to just 1 freaking catch vs. Haden. 2013 1catch 15yds, last yr…1catch 9yds, and 1catch 11yds.
