Last week, I ranked the top 10 tight ends for week 1. Rob Gronkowski randomly decided to get injured and failed to play while top scoring tight end Jack Doyle wasn't even represented on this list. This week, I will again try to rank the ten best fantasy tight ends in a week that should see a bit more production from the position. For now, I will assume that Gronkowski is not playing in week 2.

1. Jordan Reed.

Fantasy owners got excited when they saw Kirk Cousins complete his first three passes to the Redskins tight end.

Reed was unfortunately disappointing for the rest of the game, finishing the day with just six fantasy points. He should be the top fantasy tight endagainst a Cowboys defense that allowed a touchdown to Larry Donnell in week 1.

2. Delanie Walker.

The entire Titans team was absolutely awful in week 1 and it had a negative affect on Walker's fantasy value. In week 2 Walker will get a far better matchup against a Colts defense that allowed three touchdowns to opposing Colts tight ends in week 1.

3. Greg Olsen.

The Panthers tight end is an elite option every single week and should be a solid one again in week 2 against the 49ers defense. Cam targets Olsen enough for him to be a top five fantasy tight end in every single week.

4. Travis Kelce.

The Chiefs tight end had a solid fantasy day in week 1, scoring seven fantasy points on six catches. This week, he will get to play against a Texans defense that he absolutely thrashed last season. Expect a solid game from Kelce in week 2.

5. Julius Thomas.

Thomas finally flashed the talent that made him a dangerous option in Denver against the Packers in week 1. Thomas caught five passes for 64 yards and a touchdown, scoring 12 fantasy points in the process. Thomas will again be an elite fantasy option against a Chargers defense that struggled to contain Travis Kelce in week 1.

6. Kyle Rudolph.

The Vikings tight end had a fantastic week 1 and has fantasy owners believing in his future potential. Rudolph will again have a great chance to score fantasy points in week 2 against a Green Bay defense that couldn't cover Julius Thomas.

7. Eric Ebron.

The Lions tight end caught every single one of his targets in week 1 en route to 10 fantasy points. Ebron should have another really good chance to put up a solid game against a Titans team that allowed Kyle Rudolph to have a big game.

8. Jason Witten.

Young quarterbacks like to rely on their tight ends and Dak Prescott is no different. Witten had six fantasy points in week 1 and gets enough targets to be a decent fantasy play in week 2.

9. Dwayne Allen.

Andrew Luck threw three touchdown passes to his tight ends and one of them went to Allen. He's clearly a decent fantasy option now that Coby Fleener moved to the Saints and he should have a decent game in week 2 against the Broncos defense.

10. Vance McDonald.

The 49ers tight end is one of Blaine Gabbert's favorite target. That status alone makes him worthy of an add in any leagues where he is unowned.

This week, McDonald draws a tough matchup against the Panthers defense. The 49ers will likely be playing from behind though, which means Vance could easily be a top ten tight end in week 2.
