While Owen Daniels found the end zone twice last week, Pitta had a solid but underwhelming day. I do not expect to see that once again as Pitta has proven to be the most reliable target for Joe Flacco in the passing game. Cleveland had a lot of trouble with Jimmy Graham last week and will prove to have trouble with Pitta this week.
Rudolph looked much better in week two and now he gets the worst pass defense in the NFL in the New Orleans Saints. He is primed to have a great week with 60 yards and a score.

Pitta still is a low TE1, although Owen Daniels stealing 2 touchdowns from him last week was depressing for fantasy owners.
Rudolph is very touchdown dependent, but the Saints are only 14th against fantasy tight ends.
