Whether it is due to injury or lack of production, there seems to be a need for tight ends, owners can count on. Redskins’ Niles Paul headlines the must own tight ends. Waiting on these tight ends will cost you dearly. Assuming you do not have Jimmy Graham, Julius Thomas or Rob Gronkowski they are worth looking at. Gronk and Thomas owners may want to think about one of these names as protection for tight ends that have missed time due to injury.
Niles Paul – Washington Redskins (Available in 99% of ESPN/94% of Yahoo leagues)
As long as Jordan Reed is out, Niles Paul should be owned. Jay Gruden’s offense utilizes the tight end. After a 4 catch for 86 yards output in limited time against the Texans in week one, Paul outdid himself in week two, registering 8 catches and 99 yards. He also found the end zone last Sunday.
Dwayne Allen – Indianapolis Colts (Available in 91% of ESPN/63% of Yahoo leagues)
Week two may leave some Dwayne Allen owners frustrated and looking for other options. I recommend patience. Week Two feels much more like an outlier as opposed to the norm. Allen was need to protect Andrew Luck and create rush lanes for Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw. The running games was working and helped to keep the high powered Eagles offense on the sidelines. A week three match up against the Jaguars should have owners salivating.
Travis Kelce – Kansas City Chiefs (Available in 98% of ESPN/62% of Yahoo leagues)
Travis Kelce like Niles Paul made an improvement on his numbers from week one to week two. He is starting to garner trust from quarterback Alex Smith. Kelce should continue to improve in the Chiefs offense and remain a reliable fantasy option.
Delanie Walker – Tennessee Titans (Available in 30% of ESPN/35% of Yahoo leagues)
Its been two weeks and Delanie Walker has found the end zone twice. He will be involved in Ken Whisenhunt’s offense. While I don’t expect an 142 yard with a score performance every week, the upside is their with Walker, who even surprised his coach with the extra gear he posses.
