After Ross was trusted as the clear-cut No. 3 receiver on this team in Week 1 running 37 routes to just 9 routes for Higgins, we saw a changing of the guard in Week 2 when Higgins ran 42 routes while Ross ran just 23 of them. This is clearly an open competition, and one that Ross may have lost already. For now, we should give Higgins the benefit of the doubt. Against the Eagles, you really don't want to start either of them, as they have yet to allow a receiver top 81 yards or five receptions. Keep in mind they've played against Terry McLaurin, Robert Woods, and Cooper Kupp. We'll continue to monitor this receiver corps, but neither of these two need to be rostered right now.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.

Ross has the talent to be a fine option for fantasy football, but right now he's falling down the depth chart here in Cincinnati. Ross just simply isn't seeing the necessary volume to be considered for fantasy football. He can remain on your waiver wire.
