Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
I'm going to be honest, I didn't see eight targets incoming for Rob Gronkowski last week. At this stage of his career, I expected Gronk to be merely just a red-zone option that could sneak a touchdown or two away here or there, but I didn't see 90 receiving yards coming right out of the gates. He looked like the old Gronkowski and we know that him and Brady have the chemistry necessary to lead to top-tier fantasy production. Against Atlanta, Gronkowski should be viewed as a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 with upside.Nyheim Hines had some question marks surrounding him coming into the season. There was absolutely the possibility that he was a valuable option for fantasy football as a change-of-pace option to JT, but Marlon Mack's presence on this depth chart made that situation a little bit murky. Mack was active on Sunday, but was nowhere to be seen and Hines logged an impressive nine carries on the ground to go with eight targets in the passing game. If Mack is going to remain on the sideline, Hines absolutely is worth looking at as a low-end RB3 in Full PPR formats. Especially if Wentz is going to target his RBs as heavily as he did in week one.
Pat Fitzmaurice

Let's face it: We weren't drafting Gronk early enough. He continues to produce when healthy. He finished TE8 last year, and he's off to a roaring start this year, having caught 8 of 8 targets against the Cowboys for 90 yards and two touchdowns. Health is the only risk with Gronkowski, and we tend to over-penalize the players we perceive to be injury risks, failing to fully account for the replacement value we get when we plug in another player for the injured guy. Kudos to all the wise fantasy managers who ran it back with Gronk this year.The one positive thing about the Colts' offense in Week 1 was that Taylor and Hines both had respectable fantasy performances even though the Colts' offense was mostly toothless. There were fears that with check-down king Philip Rivers no longer at the controls of the Indy offense, there might not be as many targets for the Colts' backs. Well, Taylor had seven targets (establishing a career high) and six catches (tying a career high) for 60 yards. Hines caught 6 of 8 targets for 48 yards. Add the rushing numbers and Taylor totaled 116 yards from scrimmage, Hines 82. Also encouraging for fantasy managers who invested in Taylor or Hines: They were the only two Indianapolis running backs to take a snap. Marlon Mack didn't play. The Rams play rugged run defense, but Taylor is still a low-end RB1 for Week 2, and Hines is a low-end RB3 in half-point PPR but a mid-range RB3 in full-point PPR.

Gronk finished as the TE1 last week thanks to his 8/90/2 line that helped the Bucs eek out a win over the Cowboys on TNF. With TB's offense humming and a years-old connection with Tom Brady (they just hooked up for their 100th TD for crying out loud!), Gronk belongs in the weekly top-10 until further notice.Hines had a strong Week 1 showing, totaling 15 touches and nabbing six-of-eight targets. He's clearly got a locked-in role as a receiver out of the backfield, and that should bode well for his Week 2 outlook. The Colts may have a tough time moving the ball against the Rams, but the elite defense actually has actually surrendered 5.1 receptions per game to RBs over its last 17 contests - higher than league average. If you're in a league that rewards any points for receptions, Hines can safely be deployed as a flex option this week.

The Falcons were 26th against fantasy tight ends, but Gronk is pretty touchdown dependent at this point in his career. Gronk is a boom / bust TE streamer at home in a very good matchup.
