TE Notes: It wasn’t just the Patriots’ bracket coverage that took Gates out of the game in Week 2. He’s not as explosive down the field while continuing to battle foot woes. Gates is a good bet to bounce back against the Chiefs, but the foot will remain an issue all season. … Witten is a good bet for a third straight 100-yard game with Miles Austin out and Dez Bryant up in the air. … Gronkowski’s already stout production figures to sky-rocket with Aaron Hernandez out for at least a couple of weeks.


Daniels hasn’t been needed with the Texans in second-half clock-killing mode the first two games. That will change against a high-scoring Saints team in Week 3. … Forget Chris Cooley. He’s no longer a factor in the Fred Davis fantasy equation. Davis has been the Redskins’ offensive MVP through two weeks, racking up more yards than Cooley has ever produced in back-to-back starts. Consider Davis a top-six stud tight end for the rest of the season. … Don’t be fooled by Gonzalez’s monster game in Week 2. He’s still an outstanding red-zone weapon, but the Falcons wideouts won’t be bottled up every week.
