Some will wonder if Claypool is the add off the waiver wire after his big catch last week, but he's still trailing Washington in the pecking order. Claypool ran 13 routes while Washington ran 22 of them. This is not a team that runs 4WR sets, so we're going to have to wait for one of them to emerge before relying on either of them as anything more than a big play or bust WR5/6-type option. For now, the better option is Washington, but knowing the Texans have faced just 18.0 receiver targets per game, it's tough to say either of them are good bets.I know what you're thinking... is there any separation between these two? Sadly, no. Rudolph has played four more snaps while Smith has run two more routes. It's a 50/50 timeshare of a duo that has combined for just eight targets through the first two weeks. With that being said, there should be some production to be had in this matchup. The Titans have now allowed 14 different tight ends to finish as top-15 options against them since the start of the 2019 season (span of 18 games), including both Tyler Eifert and Noah Fant to start this year, as they both found the end zone. The 2.06 PPR points per target they've allowed to this point would've been the second most in football last year, and again, they allowed 1.90 PPR points per target in 2019 (seventh most), so it's not like they were slowing down the position much then, either. If you're looking for a desperation tournament play at tight end, Smith would make sense considering he's coming off a four-target game, while Rudolph saw just one.
