Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Goedert came out swinging in week one, but disappointed fantasy managers that rolled him into their starting lineup in week two. He's still getting the targets that make him an intriguing option in deep leagues, but he's not someone that can be trusted as a reliable start every single week. In this matchup, Goedert is a high-end TE2.Smith finally broke out last week and put together a dominant performance. He saw seven targets and was able to haul in five of them for 86 yards. Even with Brees struggling, Smith put up a great game and looked to finally step into the spotlight that many have been expecting from him for the past couple of seasons. In this matchup against Green Bay, Smith can be viewed as a low-end WR3/high-end WR4 that should continue to see a significant target share moving forward while Michael Thomas is out.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The Eagles are going to run 2TE sets a lot more than even I expected. After two weeks, we've seen Ertz play 126 snaps while Goedert has played 118 of them. Meanwhile, the highest snap count among receivers is 101 by Jalen Reagor. These two are the heartbeat of the offense. Goedert is starting to look like the preferred option, as he out-targeted Ertz once again. He now leads the duo in targets on the season, 17-14. The Bengals have an all-new linebacker group and have been without starting safety Shawn Williams, but they've been competent against tight ends to this point, allowing 7.44 yards per target with no touchdowns. It's such a small sample size, so we must go back to look at 2019 when they allowed 8.40 yards per target (fourth-most), and 1.91 PPR points per target (sixth-most) to the position. There were six tight ends who saw more than three targets against them last year, and five of them finished as top-nine options. It's safe to say you can start both of these tight ends, though Goedert might be the favorite moving forward, as he's totaled at least eight targets in four straight games dating back to last year, and has at least six targets in each of his last nine games.As expected, Smith saw a much larger role with Michael Thomas out of the lineup. We can extend the chart we used last week, or I could just tell you that in the 12 games where Smith has seen three or more targets, he's scored double-digit PPR points in seven of them and has just two games with less than 7.4 PPR points. If Thomas is out, he's on the fantasy radar, and this matchup suits his role well. The Packers secondary has allowed 15.8 yards per reception to wide receivers over their last 18 games, which is more Smith's role than Emmanuel Sanders', as he's targeted down the field with more frequency. It doesn't help that Brees is throwing the ball deep (20-plus yards) on just 4.4 percent of his passes, though. That's the third-lowest mark in the league and the real issue with the ceiling for any Saints wide receiver not named Thomas. If Thomas has to miss another week, Smith is likely the best play among Saints receivers, but Brees needs to start taking shots down the field.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Goedert has 17 targets in two games and he has been the most targeted tight end in the Eagles offense. The Bengals are 14th against fantasy tight ends, Goedert is shaping up as a weekly TE1 play.
