Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's the No. 2 receiver in the league when it comes to air yards, a stat that's often predictive of fantasy success. To this point, Jackson has averaged just 6.9 yards per target, but over the last seven years, he's averaged at least 10.0 yards per target in six of them. Seeing seven and nine targets is encouraging; he'll bounce back. The Bengals secondary hasn't allowed more than four receptions to a receiver over the first two weeks, which is due to the fact that running backs have had their way with them. But still, we've seen Keenan Allen get eight targets and turn them into 4/37/0, Mike Williams turn nine targets into 4/69/0, and then Odell Beckham turn six targets into 4/74/1. What was encouraging for Jackson is that Beckham seemed to routinely get open down the field against them, and if not for some holding, we would've seen a bigger game out of him. If Wentz can get some time, those air yards for Jackson might turn into a big play or two. Given his target and air yards share, he should remain in the WR3 conversation.You want to hear something crazy? Smith has exactly 12 air yards on the season. The ball has traveled 12 yards from the line of scrimmage to his hands on 12 targets. He's making everything happen after the catch. His 87 yards after the catch is the most among tight ends, while the closest one has 74 yards after the catch. That's my only concern with Smith, who ranks 11th among tight ends in targets. But make no mistake about it - he's a physical specimen who creates after the catch. The Vikings were the worst matchup in the league for tight ends last year, but last year seems so long ago for this defense that continually loses pieces. They lost linebacker Anthony Barr last week, and it didn't help them slow down Mo Alie-Cox who racked up six catches for 111 yards against them. There was a game last year where they allowed Darren Waller, another athletic tight end, to rack up 13 catches for 134 yards, too. This defense is going through some changes and it's not like you're going to sit Smith, who's currently the No. 1 tight end in half PPR formats.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jackson hasn't exactly produced the way that I thought he might to begin the season, but this offense hasn't exactly looked functional throughout the first two weeks. With that being said, he's still doing enough to be a fine FLEX option for your lineup. This week, he absolutely belongs in your starting lineup against the Bengals. The Bengals secondary doesn't have anyone that can keep up with Jackson and he always has the potential to hit the big play. I'm not expecting anything crazy from Jackson this week, but he should be viewed as a WR3 in this matchup.Smith is currently the TE1 in all of fantasy football and has now moved into weekly must-start territory. In a matchup that should see Tennessee put points up on the board, Smith should easily return TE1 value yet again.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 Smith had 84 yards receiving and 2 receiving touchdowns in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He should be a TE1 against the Vikings 12th ranked fantasy tight end defense.
