Start Of The Week: Noah Fant vs Jacksonville Jaguars
In week one, Fant was second on the team in targets (eight) and receiving yards (62) behind only Jerry Jeudy. Jeudy was hurt during said game and will now be sidelined for several weeks. Personally, I’d love to see what Fant can do with an increased target share against a Jacksonville defense that made Pharaoh Brown a thing last week. I didn’t know who he was when I first heard his name either. I’ll take the over on Fant's ESPN projection of 10.5 points this week.
Others to consider: Tyler Higbee (LAR) - @IND, Jared Cook (LAC) - DAL, Robert Tonyan (GB) - DET
Sit Of The Week: Hunter Henry vs New York Jets
Last week my suspicions were confirmed when the Pats TE situation was finally on display. In week one, it looked like Jonnu Smith took the lead as TE1-A, while Henry fell behind in snaps, targets, receptions and yards. It's important not to overreact after just one week of football. BUT.. I'm not encouraged by how things played out against the Dolphins. While I do believe Henry is one of the best TE talents in the league, he is in one of the worst situations, as far as his fantasy prospects are concerned. If you play him, you're basically banking on a TD to save the day.
