Week 2 vs. Buffalo Bills
Mike Gesicki finished with a big fat goose egg in Week 1. Even more concerning is the fact Gesicki played on just 21 of 54 (39%) offensive snaps. Dolphins tight end Durham Smythe out-snapped Gesicki by playing on 38 snaps (70%) and rookie Hunter Long played nearly the same amount, seeing 18 snaps. And this was all without tight end Adam Shaheen, who will likely return this week from the COVID list. We don't want to panic too much off of one game, but this is a tough look for fantasy owners expecting a big year from Gesicki. We have Gesicki outside of the top 15 options at tight end for Week 2. Although he does face a Bills defense that he had success against in 2020. Gesicki finished 8-130-1 in his first game vs. Buffalo and 5-47 in his second game.
All three are likely on the list as close contacts, as co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach George Godsey (who is vaccinated) did test positive for Covid. The players should likely see a short stay on the reserve list as just close contacts and if they test negative. Godsey was sent home after his positive test result.
