It was a solid week one for fantasy tight ends and here we will take a look at a few of the lesser owned ones.
Analysis: Jordan Cameron caught 9 balls for 108 yards and a score Sunday. He was targeted a team high 13 times, that’s more targets than Jimmy Graham, Vernon Davis and Jason Witten. Teams will make the Browns pass the ball this year and it appears that Jordan Cameron will be Brandon Weeden’s go to check down option. Josh Gordon will be back from suspension in week three and that will hinder Cameron’s production a bit, but the twenty-five year old will remain fantasy relevant. Cameron is available in 8-60% of fantasy leagues.
Moving on from one awful team with quarterback issues to another- the Jets. It appears that Geno Smith is relying on his tight end early this year as well. Smith targeted Kellen Winslow 8 times on Sunday afternoon, catching 7 balls for 79 yards and a score. Expect a solid amount of targets(especially in the second half) from a healthy Kellen Winsow in week two as the Jets take on the Pats on Thursday night. Winslow is available in 97-99% of fantasy leagues.
