Week Two Fantasy Football TE Sleepers
Look, fantasy football isn’t fair. Sometimes you miss out on every single bid you make in FAAB, or somehow every player you want is plucked off waivers before your priority comes around. That leaves free agency to fill the holes in your roster you wish a guy off the wire would have filled. That’s okay, every week players pop up and become the next guy you can lose out on in FAAB. These are the best of the rest, the guys available freely in every league. These tight end sleepers for week one are available in at least 50% of leagues, with one guy available in at least 90% of leagues for you deep divers. For week two, you really shouldn’t be reading this, as you should play the guys you drafted. However, some of you are playing the tight end streaming game, or you lost Greg Olsen or Delanie Walker. These week two fantasy football tight end sleepers should provide you with all the help you need. Ownership percentages are from Yahoo! and are as of Friday.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins versus New England (32% owned)
ASJ is the King of the Near Touchdown. After losing multiple touchdowns lastseason to weird, ticky-tack calls or rule quirks, he lost another one last Sunday due to an Andrew Norwell hands to the face penalty. If there’s no penalty there, ASJ ends with 36 yards and a score. A double-digit day pulled off the waiver wire, for free. Toss in this week that the Jags will likely be without Leonard Fournette, and that means at least another shot or two at the end zone for ASJ. He’s a solid pick among week two fantasy football tight end sleepers.
Ricky Seals-Jones at Rams (27% owned)
A lot of the things that made RSJ a late-season fantasy football sensation poured over into 2018 in a bigger way. The only problem is that the overall stat-line did not look great for Seals-Jones. However, he ended up with six targets and the sole red zone target that did not go to Larry Fitzgerald or David Johnson. He will get plenty of run this weekend against a Rams tight end funnel defense that let Jared Cook of all people run wild on them last week.
Ian Thomas at Atlanta (7% owned)
Greg Olsen is dead, and with him go a ton of targets. There isn’t much statistically to go on with the rookie, Thomas, but he is a hyper-athletic big-bodied tight end who has drawn comparisons to Delanie Walker in some circles. It’s a hyper-specific dart throw amid week two fantasy football tight end sleepers, but I like the guy’s talent. Talent usually wins through, but maybe not in his first game.
