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.

Pat Freiermuth Held To One Catch Against Browns

Tuesday, September 19, 11:48 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth finished with just one reception for two yards in a Week 2 victory over the Cleveland Browns. As a reliable option for quarterback Kenny Pickett in 2022, it was surprising to see Freiermuth uninvolved on Monday night, especially with Diontae Johnson (hamstring) sidelined. It's worth noting, however, that Cleveland's defense has been stout against fantasy tight ends in recent years. The third-year pro will look to bounce back against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 3.
