  • Jason Witten, Cowboys (at Phi): Bryant’s out, so now it’s time for Romo to turn to Old Reliable and that’s Witten. He should receive plenty of targets against a shaky Eagles defense.
  • Tyler Eifert, Bengals (vs. SD): Eifert broke out in Week 1 and has another soft matchup this week in San Diego. He was third among tight ends in scoring and the Chargers don’t have anyone who can check him one on one.
  • Rob Gronkowski, Patriots (at Buf): I don’t know why I even put this on the list. I guess it’s out of respect for Buffalo’s defense, but one would be a fool to sit Gronk in any matchup.


  • Larry Donnell, Giants (vs. Atl): Donnell was a big disappointment in Week 1. He was only targeted times, which is not nearly enough. He’s almost drop-worthy at this point.
  • Jordan Reed, Redskins (vs. StL): Reed played well against Miami, but this week, he’s taking on one of the top defenses in the NFL. They will be in Cousins’ face all day and will have him rattled, which is bad news for all Redskins receivers.
  • Owen Daniels, Broncos (at KC): We haven’t seen enough from Daniels yet to trust him on a weekly basis. Plus, if Manning is off, we can’t expect Daniels to produce consistent numbers.

Waiver Wire Pickups:

  • Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Buccaneers: Seferian-Jenkins is a big target and is soon to become a safety blanket for Jameis Winston.
  • Ladarius Green, Chargers: Playing in a pass-heavy offense should benefit Green, especially while Gates is out.
  • Jared Cook, Rams: Cook was solid in Week 1, but can be pretty inconsistent. Proceed with caution.
