Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Robert Tonyan put together a solid performance in week two after disappointing managers in week one. He was able to reel in a beautifully thrown ball from Rodgers in the end zone with coverage draped all over him and finished the game 3-52-1. While fantasy managers would love to see more than three targets for their starting TE, Rodgers did only throw the ball 27 times in this previous matchup. We should see the pass attempts increase moving forward and Tonyan should continue to provide a very high ceiling. Against the 49ers, Tonyan can be viewed as a low-end TE1.Through two weeks, Jonnu Smith has a 14.9% team target share, which is encouraging to see for fantasy managers. And while Jonnu is reeling in 90% of those targets, it's not leading to much reliable fantasy production. Without Jones opening up the offense, Smith is going to have to live and die by his YAC ability off of a very low ADOT and that's a risky game to play for fantasy managers. We know that Smith has the talent to be a dynamic receiving threat after the catch, but he shouldn't have to rely solely on that to provide fantasy value. With very little receiving touchdown upside, Smith needs to be downgraded in our Rest-of-Season Rankings and just be viewed as a safe option each and every week. He can be viewed as a mid-range TE2 this week.
Pat Fitzmaurice

George Kittle and Tonyan are good friends, so both tight ends might have extra motivation for this one. Tonyan's 11-TD season in 2020 screams "regression," but he scored a touchdown in Week 2 on a perfectly thrown laser from Rodgers, and it seems as if Rodgers likes to seek out Tonyan in the red zone. The 49ers were blowtorched by Lions TE T.J. Hockenson in Week 1 but kept Eagles TEs Dallas Goedert and Zach Ertz from doing any significant damage in Week 2. Consider Tonyan a low-end TE1 or top-end TE2.Not gonna lie: I'm still trying to find the answer key to the Smith/Henry quiz. Somehow I knew it was going to be this way when the two of them signed with the Patriots a day apart. After they both played about three-quarters of the offensive snaps in Week 1, Henry played 81% of the Week 2 snaps while Smith played 50%. Smith has out-targeted Henry 10-7, but Henry's average depth of target (3.0 yards) is a little sexier than Jonnu's (0.6 yards). Naturally, I have them ranked back to back this week, with Smith at TE14 and Henry at TE15.

The 49ers are just 22nd against fantasy tight ends, but Tonyan needs to find the end zone to have fantasy relevance. He is a boom / bust TE2 on the road this week.Smith and Hunter Henry are canceling each other out early in the season, Smith is a low-upside TE2 at home against New Orleans.
