Top TEs To Start in Week 3

Hunter Henry, New England Patriots

At this point, Henry needs to be in your starting lineups. For someone drafted outside of the top 20 TEs in fantasy this year, he’s quickly skyrocketed up the rankings.

Henry is the TE2 in fantasy football behind only T.J. Hockenson through two weeks. The Vikings’ tight end has 29.6 half-PPR fantasy points, Henry has 28.3, and the next closest is Hayden Hurst with 16.1.

Henry’s getting the job done, Mac Jones is looking his way early and often, and he’s the main target when this team gets into the red zone. He belongs in starting lineups moving forward.

Hayden Hurst, Carolina Panthers

There’s one massive tier at TE once you get past the top-8 players in rankings. This tier goes from TE9 down to TE20 or so, and it’s a guessing game to see which one will produce for your starting lineup that week.

With the news that Andy Dalton will start at QB for the Carolina Panthers while Bryce Young deals with an ankle injury, Hurst moved up my rankings. We’ve seen competent QB play from Dalton in the past. He should look to get the ball out quickly to a proven receiving option like Hurst over the middle of the field in this one.

Eight or more targets in Week 3 for Hurst isn’t out of the realm of possibilities, which means he’s a solid streaming option against the Seattle Seahawks defense.
