Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
 Noah Fant proved that he doesn't need a high target share (or deep targets) to return fantasy value -- but I'm still worried about his floor. He had the second-most targets (6) but fewer air yards (47) than Denver's three leading wide receivers, which proves that he can make plays with his legs. He's got a difficult matchup against the Steelers this week, and since it sounds like Courtland Sutton will play, I don't think Fant will finish as a TE1 in Week 2.
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Hockenson had a big Week 1, snagging Matt Stafford's only TD pass of the afternoon while catching all five of his targets. He should continue to see an uptick in usage (especially in the red zone) as long as Kenny Golladay is out. If Kenny G is out in Week 2, Hockenson is a TE1 play.The sophomore draws a tough matchup with Pittsburgh in Week 2, but he could be a reliable safety valve for Drew Lock while the Steeler's elite pass rush closes in on him. Fant had a solid showing in Week 1, and if Courtland Sutton is again ruled out, the tight end has TE1 appeal.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We knew the opportunity could be there for Hockenson this year, and without Golladay, we got what we wanted. Hockenson caught all five of his targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in a tough matchup against the Bears. To give you an idea of how impressive that was, the only tight ends who topped 50 yards against the Bears last year were Zach Ertz and Travis Kelce. Now onto the Packers, a team that allowed half the tight ends they played last year to finish as top-12 options with 10-plus PPR points. They only allowed three catches for 39 yards to the Vikings tight ends, but that's because they only saw three targets. The 13.0 yards per target they allowed was actually the second-most in the league. Going back to last year, they allowed the eighth-most yards per target to tight ends. We're chasing targets with tight ends, and Hockenson should be in line for five-plus targets here. Start him as a low-end TE1 until he gives us a reason not to. If Golladay is held out again, I'd bump him up into cash-game consideration this week.We knew Fant would have an increased role with Sutton out of the lineup, and he did, totaling six targets and turning them into 5/81/1. Knowing the problems that Sutton and Jeudy present for opposing defenses, Fant should continue to find success if he gets the targets. The Steelers allowed Evan Engram just two catches for nine yards on Monday night, but it should've been a much bigger game, as Engram played poorly and had a few drops. The Steelers were not a team to attack in 2019 with tight ends, as they allowed the fourth-fewest yards in the league to them. They did, however, allow eight touchdowns to them. Engram should've had a touchdown early in the game, too, but Daniel Jones just flat out missed him. The Broncos will have trouble running the ball, so we should see 35-plus pass attempts here. It's tough to love Fant when the Broncos have an 18.3-point implied team total, but if Sutton is out, he's locked into five-plus targets. Because of that, he's in the fringe TE1/TE2 conversation.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Hockenson looked good in the opener, finishing with 5 receptions for 56 yards, and 1 touchdown. Hockenson is on the TE2 radar at Green Bay.Fant has a horrible matchup against a Steelers team that held Evan Engram to 2 receptions for 9 yards last week. Fant is a low-upside TE2 at Pittsburgh.
