Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
 Leave Austin Hooper on your bench this week. He busted hard in Week 1, and he earned few targets (2) from Mayfield. Even though David Njoku landed on injured reserve, which should increase Hooper's usage in the passing game, there are better volume-based options to start over him. They include Logan Thomas, O.J. Howard, and, if Kittle sits, Jordan Reed. Hooper isn't necessarily a must-drop heading into Week 2, but if he can't perform with Njoku out of the lineup, he will be droppable for Week 3.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was a promising start to Henry's season with Taylor where he saw a massive 26.7 target share. He caught five of his eight targets for 73 yards in a plus-matchup against the Bengals. This mirrors what Taylor did as a starter in Buffalo, relying heavily on his tight end, who was Charles Clay at that time. However, if they want to proactively target Ekeler more out of the backfield, it would cut into Henry's targets. The Chiefs have continually let tight ends have the underneath stuff and it's the reason they faced 145 targets last year, which ranked as the second-most in football. Tight ends averaged just 9.94 yards per reception, which ranked as the seventh lowest in the league. So, if the Chargers want to dink-and-dunk down the field, the Chiefs will seemingly allow it. Henry tallied six catches for 69 yards against this defense last year, so he's familiar. Until we see Taylor move of Henry and target Ekeler a lot more, you should play Henry as a stable TE1 with a solid floor.Remember when the Browns listed David Njoku as the third-string tight end, then later that week he led the tight ends in targets and production? It's not like three targets is a lot but it was more than Hooper, who finished with just two targets in his first game with the team. I mentioned this offseason how the Vikings used their two tight ends last year, and it appears the Browns wanted to potentially use three tight ends, as even rookie Harrison Bryant was targeted twice. The tight ends combined for 7-of-39 targets, which is a measly 17.9 percent target share. Now that Njoku is on injured reserve, it's fair to say Hooper gets a big bump in the confidence department. The Bengals were without starting safety Shawn Williams last week and it led to Hunter Henry tagging them for 5/73/0, though it took him eight targets to get there, something we can't guarantee from him, even with Njoku out. There are now six tight ends who've hit double-digit points against the Bengals over the last 17 games, and five of them saw at least seven targets. I won't say Hooper gets there, but I'll still consider him a high-end TE2 considering Bryant is a rookie who can't be too involved.

Henry had 5 receptions for 73 yards in the opener, he looks to find the end zone in a potential shootout with the Chiefs. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Austin Hooper is a sneaky start this week with David Njoku landing on IR. Harrison Bryant shouldn't see the amount of work that Njoku was and the Browns need another safe receiving option over the middle of the field. While Hooper disappointed in week one, he should bounce back with a nice performance in this matchup.
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
After leading the Chargers in receiving in Week 1, Henry will look to replicate that success in Week 2. Facing off against Kansas City's strong pass rush and formidable secondary, Tyrod Taylor will likely look Henry's way frequently Sunday as a reliable checkdown and middle-of-the-field target. He's a strong play this week.Hooper had a poor Week 1 showing, grabbing only two passes and ceding work (and a TD) to David Njoku. With news that Njoku hit the IR on Monday, Hooper shouldn't have to worry about competition at TE. There are plenty of mouths to feed in Cleveland's offense, but better days should be ahead. Next up is Cincinnati's defense, which allowed Hunter Henry to go 5/73 in Week 1.
