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.

Sam LaPorta Has TE1 Outlook In Week 3

Thursday, September 21, 2:16 PM

Detroit Lions tight end Sam LaPorta has hauled in 10 of his 11 targets for 102 yards in his first two games as a pro. The Iowa product is the No. 5 tight end in total fantasy points (PPR) through two weeks, so he carries another TE1 outlook into Week 3. Amon-Ra St. Brown (toe) and Josh Reynolds (groin) are banged up this week and turned in limited practices. If one or both of those two wideouts are out for Week 3, LaPorta's ceiling would be even higher. If they both play, he's still becoming a virtual must-start at the always-scarce tight end spot in fantasy football. Start him with confidence against the Atlanta Falcons.
