I know what you're thinking... is there any separation between these two? Sadly, no. Rudolph has played four more snaps while Smith has run two more routes. It's a 50/50 timeshare of a duo that has combined for just eight targets through the first two weeks. With that being said, there should be some production to be had in this matchup. The Titans have now allowed 14 different tight ends to finish as top-15 options against them since the start of the 2019 season (span of 18 games), including both Tyler Eifert and Noah Fant to start this year, as they both found the end zone. The 2.06 PPR points per target they've allowed to this point would've been the second most in football last year, and again, they allowed 1.90 PPR points per target in 2019 (seventh most), so it's not like they were slowing down the position much then, either. If you're looking for a desperation tournament play at tight end, Smith would make sense considering he's coming off a four-target game, while Rudolph saw just one.
