Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
 Gesicki busted in Week 1, but you shouldn't give up on him quite yet. The Patriots' defense is always a tough opponent, and the Buffalo Bills could struggle against him in Week 2. They're without two of their starting linebackers, Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano, which could leave some passing lanes open for the big-bodied receiving threat. Gesicki is a high-risk play this week, but if you drafted him as your TE1, he's not the worst start due to Buffalo's injuries.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 Gesicki has a tough matchup against the Bills D, he is a TE2 with limited upside in a tough matchup.
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
 Gesicki had a rough time in the season-opener, and things don't get any better in Week 2 against Buffalo. The Bills's solid defense should cause plenty of problems for Miami, and this will be a tough spot for Gesicki, who finished with just three catches and no touchdowns in Week 1.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
DeSean Jackson was in a prime spot to blow up last week, but he failed to live up to expectations. He was in and out of the lineup all game long and played only 37 snaps out of a possible 68. While there's reason to temper expectations with Jackson this week, he still belongs in your lineup as a FLEX option. All it takes is one big play and he can single-handedly win you your matchup. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was a disappointing day for the Eagles offense in Week 1, and that includes Jackson who was held to just two catches for 46 yards on a solid seven targets. We can't complain about the target total, though the more experience Jalen Reagor gets, the more he's going to cut into that number. The Rams cornerbacks did very well limiting the big plays against the Cowboys trio of receivers. They allowed the fifth-most receptions to wide receivers in Week 1, but again, when you play the Cowboys, that's going to happen. Gallup was the only one who averaged more than 11.8 yards per reception, and he wound up with three catches for 50 yards on five targets. Going back to last year, this Rams defense allowed just six plays of 40-plus yards, which ranked as the fifth fewest in the league. Jackson is someone who'll offer WR3 value during certain weeks, but you likely have better options this week. Still, he's on the WR4 radar as someone who should see six-plus targets.Despite him being listed as the No. 2 tight end on the depth chart, Gesicki led the tight ends in snaps by a wide margin. He was on the field for 45-of-62 plays, including 31 pass plays while no other tight end was in on more than two. He saw five targets against the Patriots, which netted three catches for 30 yards. While the target number is fine, he's going to need more than that to produce against this defense. Look no further than last year when he posted 4/41/0 and 4/18/0 against them on a total of 10 targets. There were just two tight ends who finished better than the TE10 against them last season, and just one who topped 48 yards. So, it's kind of touchdown-or-bust for tight ends against them, unless a big play is made. That's an issue for Gesicki who has averaged just 6.37 yards per target over his career. If DeVante Parker sits, like we're expecting him to, we could see six-plus targets for Gesicki, but in this matchup, he's a high-end TE2, at best.
