Week 2 Reactions: Tight End Troubles

Andrew M. Laird, the 2017 FSWA Soccer Writer of the Year, is RotoWire's Senior Soccer Editor and a fantasy football contributor. He is also a two-time finalist for the FSWA's Football Writer of the Year Award.

Tom Brady broke out in a huge way after a disappointing Week 1 performance against the Chiefs, completing 77 percent of his 39 pass attempts for 447 yards and three touchdowns. Brady absolutely tore apart the Saints’ porous pass defense, completing throws to nine different players, highlighted by tight end Rob Gronkowski (six catches on nine targets for 116 yards and a touchdown) and running back James White (eight catches on eight targets for 85 yards). If there was a complaint to be made it was that former Saint Brandin Cooks had almost no impact on the game, catching two of four targets for 37 yards while five players had at least three catches and Gronkowski, Chris Hogan and Rex Burkhead caught touchdown passes. There was basically no doubt that Brady was going to bounce back after struggling against the Chiefs, but fantasy owners who were hoping to double down with Cooks didn’t get their wish.
