Tim's Fantasy Tips
George Kittle (TE - SF)
1d
Player Note on George Kittle (TE - SF)
The only reason Kittle isn't locked in as a top-two TE this week against a friendly Jets pass defense is because of his sprained knee. It's likely Kittle won't be at 100 percent, and yet Kittle at less than 100 percent is an upgrade over most TE's in the league.
Greg Olsen (TE - SEA)
2d
Player Note on Greg Olsen (TE - SEA)
G-Reg caught a short TD and scored 12.4 (PPR) points in his Seahawks debut. Considering Wilson's penchant for targeting his TE's (especially in the redzone) and Olsen's several seasons long resume of being a top-TE in the NFL, it's not unreasonable to expect him to rise up the ranks over the next few weeks. Speculation aside, he will face a tough test in week two against a New England team that held Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki to just 6.0 (PPR) points in week one.
Patrick Mahomes II (QB - KC)

Player Note on Patrick Mahomes II (QB - KC)
Normally, Mahomes is locked in as a top-three QB on any given week, but this week is different. Crazy but true: Mahomes has never thrown for over 300 passing yards against the Chargers. He didn't even reach 200 yards in his lone start against them last season. Nobody would be surprised if he breaks the mold and then some, but nonetheless the mold is cause for concern.
Rob Gronkowski (TE - TB)
2d
Player Note on Rob Gronkowski (TE - TB)
After a poor week one showing (two rec. on three targets for 11 yards) Gronk has plummeted down the ranks. Throw in the fact that OJ Howard put up a respectable performance in the same game (four rec. on six targets for 36 yards and one TD) and things aren't looking promising for Gronk in week two against a Carolina defense that held Darren Waller below 50 yards last week.

Jonathan Taylor (RB - IND)

Player Note on Jonathan Taylor (RB - IND)
Taylor will make his NFL debut as a starter behind the best run-blocking offensive line in the NFL. That, plus his pedigree as a three down workhorse and receiver, coupled with the fact that Phillip Rivers is his quarterback makes him an extremely promising prospect. Taylor projects nicely as a starter in week two against a Vikings defense that gave up 17.6 (PPR) points to Aaron Jones in week one.
Saquon Barkley (RB - NYG)
3d
Player Note on Saquon Barkley (RB - NYG)
Barkley rushed for just six yards on 15 carries (0.4 YPC) in week one. Most of it could be attributed to an elite Pittsburgh front seven, but a good deal of it has to do with the fact there are several rookies on the G-men's offensive line. Facing the Bears in week two, things get easier for Saquon and company, but not by much. Nevertheless, Barkley remains a must-start based on talent alone.
Derrick Henry (RB - TEN)

Player Note on Derrick Henry (RB - TEN)
Derrick Henry + Jaguars = fantasy points.
Alvin Kamara (RB - NO)
3d
Player Note on Alvin Kamara (RB - NO)
After a strong showing where he missed delivering a TD hat-trick by less than an inch (no, really) it's reasonable to expect Kamara to have a similar performance against the Raiders. Last week, Las Vegas gave up 90+ rush yards and two TD's to Christian McCaffrey. With Michael Thomas doubtful for this game after suffering a high ankle sprain in week one, Kamara could see his volume increase even further.
Christian McCaffrey (RB - CAR)
3d
Player Note on Christian McCaffrey (RB - CAR)
McCaffrey would normally be ranked as RB1 in any given week, but this week he travels to Tampa to take on the Bucs. Last season, the Bucs held CMC under 38 rush yards and 60 total yards in both games they met. There is little reason to suspect McCaffery has a similar performance against the Bucs this season, but Todd Bowles appeared to have his number (from an efficiency standpoint) last season. If anyone can slow the 2019 fantasy MVP, it just might be the Bucs.
