Irv Smith Jr. Has Three Catches In Week 1

Sunday, September 10, 9:53 PM

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Irv Smith Jr. recorded three catches for 17 yards during the loss to the Browns on Sunday. Surprisingly, the former Viking was one of the Bengals' top producers in Week 1. However, considering Cincy accumulated only three points in this one, that's not saying much. Fantasy managers should at least be glad Smith got five targets from Joe Burrow. While he probably won't be a reliable fantasy option moving ahead, he may have a few decent performances this season. That said, Smith is undoubtedly a risky fantasy option in Week 2 versus the Baltimore Ravens.

Cole Kmet - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Thursday, September 14, 4:36 PM

Chicago Bears tight end Cole Kmet will look to rebound from a tough Week 1 performance this Sunday against Tampa Bay. Kmet tied for the team lead in targets with seven but was mostly ineffective as a blocker in the passing game. The Bears awful offensive performance was a team-wide disaster and Kmet was not immune from making mistakes. Kmet should have a decent matchup against a Tampa Bay defense that allowed the seventh most fantasy points to opposing tight ends last season, including surrendering nine touchdowns. The talented tight end will have fringe top-12 fantasy value among his position group for Week 2.
