If you are strictly looking for a guy who can get into the endzone, Zach Pascal may be your man. In his first two games, Pascal has recorded three touchdowns, which is tied for the second-most in the NFL. While Pascal’s yardage is far from elite, he is a great security blanket for Carson Wentz in the RedZone. Even if Wentz has to sit out with his two sprained ankles (I am not even sure how you do that), the odds are Frank Reich will try to limit second-year quarterback Jacob Eason and utilize intermediate routes with Pascal in the RedZone. I like Pascal to continue his touchdown streak for one more game against a weak Titans defense.
Three Next Fantasy Studs
No more Mark Andrews, no more George Kittle. I think it may be time to give the throne to Tj Hockenson for the third-best tight end in the NFL from a fantasy perspective. In his first two games, Hockenson has been targeted 20 times. That is more than Kittle (9), Andrews (10) and even Travis Kelce (14)… Hockenson was even able to out-target some marque wide receivers such as Justin Jefferson, Tyreek Hill and A.J. Brown. To go with his massive target share, Hockenson is top-10 in receiving touchdowns and top-20 in receiving yards. With the Lions failing to retain receivers Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay, this remains Hockenson’s offense.
