The Top TEs To Start in Week 2

Hunter Henry, TE, New England Patriots

Hunter Henry was one of my favorite players to target in drafts coming into the year, and it’s playing out even better than I anticipated. Henry has now scored in back-to-back weeks and will finish as a top-five option at the position for fantasy for both games.

Moving forward, Henry has done enough to now be in your starting lineups week after week, especially at the TE position when you’re praying for points in your starting lineup.

Sam LaPorta, TE, Detroit Lions

Sam LaPorta has now done enough in his first two NFL games to warrant top-10 consideration at the TE position for fantasy football. He’s seen 11 targets up to this point and will finish as a TE1 for both weeks.

In a matchup in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons, LaPorta should be in your starting lineups in a plus matchup.
