With an exciting opening week of football under our belts, here are the Lester’s Legends 2013 Week 2 fantasy football tight end rankings.
1. Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints
Graham had four catches for 45 yards and a score. Not a huge start, but he’s always a threat to score. Look for a big game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
2. Vernon Davis, San Francisco 49ers
Davis had 98 yards and two touchdowns as Colin Kaepernick went his way often. He’s a tough cover, even for the Seattle Seahawks.
3. Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys
It’s not surprising that Witten finished with 70 yards. It is surprising that he scored a pair of touchdowns. He is a good bet for receptions and yards. If he can get in the end zone, his value will skyrocket. Witten faces the Kansas City Chiefs this week.
4. Tony Gonzalez, Atlanta Falcons
Gonzo continues to deliver despite his age. He had 36 yards and a touchdown. He should see more looks against the St. Louis Rams with Roddy White (ankle) limited.
5. Julius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Thomas exploded onto the scene with 110 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He faces the New York Giants, who got shredded by Witten last week.
6. Jared Cook, St. Louis Rams
Cook is a freak athlete who is finally getting to shine in St. Louis. He had 141 yards and two touchdowns in the opener. He faces the Falcons, who yielded a touchdown to Jimmy Graham last week.
7. Jordan Cameron, Cleveland Browns
Cameron had nine catches for 108 yards and a touchdown. He faces the Baltimore Ravens, who were last seen making Julius Thomas a fantasy star.
8. Owen Daniels, Houston Texans
Daniels caught five passes for 67 yards and two touchdowns. Next up are the Tennessee Titans.
9. Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers
Olsen had five grabs for 56 yards. With Steve Smith being the only other viable option, Olsen should be heavily targeted against the Buffalo Bills.
10. Jermichael Finley, Green Bay Packers
Finley had five catches for 56 yards and a touchdown. He is a great athlete. He should be solid against the Washington Redskins as long as his hands don’t fail him.
