Week 2 TE Rankings

Photo By: Kim Klement / US PRESSWIRE

Perhaps the Patriots were telling us what they thought of their 2012 personnel when they gave Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski new contracts and failed to give Wes Welker a new deal. If Welker is one the decline we will see Hernandez reap the benefits in the short to intermediate passing game.

Then again, it’s not like the Patriots allowed Welker to walk away for nothing as they gave him the franchise tag and are paying him good money, this year.

Still, for anyone who may have had doubts about the Patriots keeping two tight ends productive, we can squash those worries at this time. Hernandez will be a force in New England’s offense and the matchup problems he presents will keep him on the field most of the time.

What Did We Learn From Week 1?

– Jason Witten is one tough hombre but he clearly needs more time to heal up before he’s back to the star player we remember. Witten struggled in his blocking assignments and was on and off the field against the Giants, while making little impact in the box score.

Thankfully, Witten has a week and a half to get ready for the Seahawks but keep him on the bench this week as the Cowboys head out to Seattle.

– Jermichael Finley will be used in an assortment of ways in the Packers offense, but he needs to focus on playing and not be side tracked by what his opponent is saying to him on the field. The 49ers clearly got in his head last week, and Chicago will likely try to do the same thing.

The good news for Finley is he’s had sound success against Chicago in the past, even posting a three touchdown effort against them last season. Expect good things from the talented tight end this week.

Sean’s Watch List

– The Vikings did some good things in he passing game, in the second half against the Jaguars. Tight end Kyle Rudlolph has a chance to be a low-end TE1 this year, but hopefully he will find the end zone against the Colts.

– Kevin Boss had a nice touchdown catch against the Falcons last week, and Jacob Tamme should have a good game vs. Atlanta on Monday Night Football. Tamme was slow to get started against the Steelers, but came on when the game was in the balance for a touchdown reception and another key first down.

Expect Manning to keep him active in the offense weekly, and Tamme should remain as a worthy low-end TE1 for fantasy owners.
