Tight Ends

    1. 1
    2. Jimmy Graham
    3. Jimmy
      Graham
      TE
    4. REC YDS108
    5. REC TD1

    There is no stopping this guy. Period.

    1. 2
    2. Jared Cook
    3. Jared
      Cook
      TE
    4. REC YDS82
    5. REC TD1

    Cook had seven targets a week ago, and with the Niners down at least one star linebacker, he could exploit some holes in the defense.

    1. 3
    2. Owen Daniels
    3. Owen
      Daniels
      TE
    4. REC YDS78
    5. REC TD1

    Daniels got nine targets last week, and I think Matt Schaub will rely on him this week against a tough Seattle defense.

    1. 4
    2. Antonio Gates
    3. Antonio
      Gates
      TE
    4. REC YDS66
    5. REC TD1

    Gates caught five passes for 55 yards and a TD last week. I was wrong about him this year. He looks like a weekly starter.

    1. 5
    2. Jordan Cameron
    3. Jordan
      Cameron
      TE
    4. REC YDS65
    5. REC TD1

    So much for Josh Gordon cutting into Cameron's production. They both starred last week, with Cameron catching three TD passes. Start him every week.

    1. 6
    2. Jason Witten
    3. Jason
      Witten
      TE
    4. REC YDS65
    5. REC TD1

    Witten caught five of his six targets for 67 yards against the Rams. The Chargers have struggled to stop the pass this year, and that'll show up when Witten finds the end zone this week.

    1. 7
    2. Tony Gonzalez
    3. Tony
      Gonzalez
      TE
    4. REC YDS65
    5. REC TD1

    Gonzalez had another down week, catching four passes for 24 yards. I think he's a good bet to get back on track this week.

    1. 8
    2. Jordan Reed
    3. Jordan
      Reed
      TE
    4. REC YDS50
    5. REC TD1

    Reed continues to have a role in the offense, catching five passes for 50 yards last week. Look for a similar performance in Oakland if he's healthy.

    1. 9
    2. Heath Miller
    3. Heath
      Miller
      TE
    4. REC YDS40
    5. REC TD1

    Miller made his season debut last week, catching three passes for 35 yards. He could eventually become a fantasy starter.

    1. 10
    2. Jermaine Gresham
    3. Jermaine
      Gresham
      TE
    4. REC YDS38
    5. REC TD1

    Gresham got five targets but didn't do much with them, catching four passes for 27 yards. He shouldn't be trusted as a starter.

    1. 11
    2. Kyle Rudolph
    3. Kyle
      Rudolph
      TE
    4. REC YDS64
    5. REC TD0

    Rudolph didn't turn in a great stat line a week ago, but the eight targets were nice to see. He'll be Christian Ponder's favorite target this week.

    1. 12
    2. Julius Thomas
    3. Julius
      Thomas
      TE
    4. REC YDS58
    5. REC TD0

    Thomas caught three passes for 37 yards last week, but found his way into the end zone yet again. He'll be held out for the first time this season on Sunday.

    1. 13
    2. Coby Fleener
    3. Coby
      Fleener
      TE
    4. REC YDS56
    5. REC TD0

    Fleener got just two targets a week ago, showing he still has a ways to go until fantasy owners can trust him as a regular starter.

    1. 14
    2. Tyler Eifert
    3. Tyler
      Eifert
      TE
    4. REC YDS52
    5. REC TD0

    Eifert got just two targets to Jermaine Gresham's five last week. Right now, it's impossible to trust either of them as a starter.

    1. 15
    2. Charles Clay
    3. Charles
      Clay
      TE
    4. REC YDS52
    5. REC TD0

    Clay caught four passes for 40 yards. If you're a Rob Gronkowski or Vernon Davis owner, he's a decent insurance policy this week.

    1. 16
    2. Brandon Pettigrew
    3. Brandon
      Pettigrew
      TE
    4. REC YDS50
    5. REC TD0

    Pettigrew only got two targets last week and didn't catch either of them. He is not a fantasy option.

    1. 17
    2. Vernon Davis
    3. Vernon
      Davis
      TE
    4. REC YDS47
    5. REC TD0

    Davis missed last week's game with a hamstring injury. At press time, his status for this week is up in the air. We'll be sure to update here as necessary.

    1. 18
    2. Brandon Myers
    3. Brandon
      Myers
      TE
    4. REC YDS47
    5. REC TD0

    Myers was able to play last week despite a rib injury, but caught just three passes for 33 yards. The Chiefs present him with another serious challenge.

    1. 19
    2. Scott Chandler
    3. Scott
      Chandler
      TE
    4. REC YDS47
    5. REC TD0

    Chandler had his first big game of the year, catching five passes for 79 yards and a TD. I do not recommend giving him a go this week.

    1. 20
    2. Martellus Bennett
    3. Martellus
      Bennett
      TE
    4. REC YDS44
    5. REC TD0

    Bennett had his first down game as a Bear last week, but that shouldn't stop you from getting him in your lineup against the Lions.

    1. 21
    2. Delanie Walker
    3. Delanie
      Walker
      TE
    4. REC YDS37
    5. REC TD0

    Walker had eight targets last week, catching five passes for 49 yards. It'll be interesting to see if his targets stay at this level.

    1. 22
    2. Brent Celek
    3. Brent
      Celek
      TE
    4. REC YDS37
    5. REC TD0

    Celek had five targets last week, catching two of them for 18 yards. I don't see him doing much better against Denver.

    1. 23
    2. Kellen Winslow
    3. Kellen
      Winslow
      TE
    4. REC YDS31
    5. REC TD0

    Winslow completely disappeared last week, not even having so much as a target. He shouldn't be trusted with all the depth at the position.

    1. 24
    2. Zach Miller
    3. Zach
      Miller
      TE
    4. REC YDS28
    5. REC TD0

    Miller caught two touchdowns against the Jags, but they were his only two catches and represented 66.7 percent of his targets. He's not relevant to fantasy owners yet.

    1. 25
    2. Dallas Clark
    3. Dallas
      Clark
      TE
    4. REC YDS27
    5. REC TD0

    Clark caught four of the seven passes thrown his way last week for 47 yards. The opportunity for him is there in this offense, but he'll have to prove he's still capable.

    1. 26
    2. Logan Paulsen
    3. Logan
      Paulsen
      TE
    4. REC YDS26
    5. REC TD0

    With Fred Davis fading, Paulsen could be the No. 1 tight end in Washington. Doesn't mean you want to start him, though.
