Well, we got our answer about who leads this timeshare in Week 1. Olsen not only doubled Dissly's targets (4 to 2), but he out-snapped him (41 to 25) as well. It'll take time for Dissly to get back to speed, and it was good to see Olsen have rapport with Olsen immediately, catching all four targets for 24 yards and a touchdown. It's still a timeshare so we can't get too excited. The Patriots were the seventh-best team at defending tight ends last year, allowing just three tight ends to top 44 yards. Those tight ends were Zach Ertz, Travis Kelce, and Dawson Knox. It was touchdown or bust for every tight end not named Ertz or Kelce, because outside of them, no tight end who failed to score finished top-18 against them. With the exit of Patrick Chung this season, they could be more susceptible to big performances, though Mike Gesicki just finished with 30 yards on five targets. Olsen is the preferred option but it's hard to say he's more than a middling TE2 who would need to score.He only walked out of last week's game with two catches for 17 yards, but the encouraging sign for Ross was that he was an every-down player. He actually led all Bengals skill-position players in snaps. Zac Taylor also seemed to take it easy on Burrow in his first game, giving him a bunch of short throws, allowing him to ease into the NFL in a tough matchup. Knowing how often Burrow was under duress, it's no wonder we didn't see many deep passes. The Browns registered a sack on 6.9 percent of dropbacks last year and 7.1 percent in Week 1, so it's not likely he'll have a lot of time to look downfield in this game. The difference in this matchup is the cornerback play, though, as the Browns don't have near the cornerback or safety talent that the Chargers do. The downside is that their best cornerback, Denzel Ward, typically sticks at LCB, which is where Ross runs most of his routes. They moved him around, so it's not exclusive, and it's possible they decide to have Ward shadow A.J. Green. Ross is someone who should be owned in fantasy leagues, but he's still a boom-or-bust WR5 until we see Burrow and him connect. He's a one-play upside tournament play in DFS, though.
