Here are your Week 1 Fantasy Football Tight Ends to Start.
Jordan Reed, Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals lost their way when Calais Campbell left for the Rams and their pass rush was never the same, which allowed quarterbacks to have their way against the defense. This season, they let Tyrann Mathieu go in free agency too, who was instrumental in covering the opposing tight ends. As for Reed, he gets the benefit of catching the Cardinals in the midst of transitioning to the 4-3 without the ideal personnel. He’s also healthy, which, truly is the most important piece of knowledge about this matchup, because when he’s at full strength, Reed is as good as any tight end but he has never played a full season in his entire career. So start him while he’s good to go. – Ernie Estrella
