It’s time to put the right players forward and keep the ball rolling. Seasoned fantasy players know about the studs and chalky plays so at Bruno Boys we try to help wade through the matchups on those tougher decisions, or point out when there’s a great matchup that you should go all-in on. That said, the early part of the season can be a tough one since the preseason shows so little to go on. Still, we feel very strong about these recommendations and you should use them to help guide you to your starting lineup.
Here are your Week 2 Fantasy Football Tight Ends to Sit.
C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Eifert, Cincinnati Bengals vs. San Francisco 49ers
There are a few reasons I am shying away from both of these Bengals tight ends. First off, there’s an even split of the targets and receptions between Uzomah and Eifert. If you have either one of these on your roster, you’re probably counting the days until Eifert goes down, hopefully that doesn’t happen and so far, so good. The Bengals are definitely better when he’s on the field, as evidenced in Week 1.
So while both are healthy, it’s going to be tough to get anything but low end TE2 numbers out of either one. It’s a pure guessing game. Still, you’ve got to be encouraged to see both producing. Not to burst the bubble completely, but the Niners handled O.J. Howard last week. Sure, they let him get a few receptions but no real damage. I’ll take that as a bad matchup for both Bengals tight ends.
