Tight End Outlook Week 2

Welcome to the Philadelphia Eagles offense in 2020. With a receiver group nearly as depleted with talent as a season ago, Dallas Goedert (TE10) is a top-two target in the Eagles passing game. A role that will likely not waver much throughout the year. I wouldn’t say there’s a changing of the guards in Philly when it comes to their tight ends, but it’ll likely be a toss-up on a weekly basis for who scores more points, Goedert or Zach Ertz.

Goedert was TE8 over the final 11 weeks of 2019, averaging just 2.8 ppg less than Ertz over that span. Furthermore, Goedert has averaged an impressive 8-plus targets per game dating back to Week 12 of last season.

Goedert’s opponents this coming week, the Rams, have allowed a touchdown to opposing tight ends in three of their last four games. Lock him in as a mid-to-low TE1 in all leagues.

We warned you last week about Rob Gronkowski‘s (TE16) volume concerns. Those concerns came to fruition in Week 1, where O.J. Howard not only looked like the preferred tight end of choice for Tom Brady, but a top-two to three target in the entire offense.

Expect the Bucs to work out some kinks in Week 2 and put forth a solid showing vs. Carolina. Gronk will likely see an added target share, even if it will be somewhat forced. However, the Panthers were less than welcoming to opposing tight ends a season ago. Carolina surrendered the eighth-fewest points to the position in 2019, while limiting Darren Waller to 45 yards receiving and zero touchdowns this past weekend.
