Tight Ends

    1. 1
    2. Jimmy Graham
    3. Jimmy
      Graham
      TE
    4. REC YDS113
    5. REC TD1

    Another 100-yard effort and another two TDs. He's in a world of his own.

    1. 2
    2. Jordan Cameron
    3. Jordan
      Cameron
      TE
    4. REC YDS98
    5. REC TD1

    Another week, another huge performance for Cameron. He was the breakout player of the first month of the season.

    1. 3
    2. Antonio Gates
    3. Antonio
      Gates
      TE
    4. REC YDS93
    5. REC TD1

    Gates caught all 10 of his targets last week, racking up 136 yards and a TD. Get him in your lineup each and every week.

    1. 4
    2. Vernon Davis
    3. Vernon
      Davis
      TE
    4. REC YDS86
    5. REC TD1

    Davis only caught two passes in his return but made them count by hitting paydirt once. Make sure to get him in your lineup this week.

    1. 5
    2. Jermichael Finley
    3. Jermichael
      Finley
      TE
    4. REC YDS68
    5. REC TD1

    Finley will play after suffering a concussion in the Packers' last game. Use him as you normally would.

    1. 6
    2. Tony Gonzalez
    3. Tony
      Gonzalez
      TE
    4. REC YDS64
    5. REC TD1

    Gonzalez is the only fully healthy pass catcher in Atlanta. That will show up again this week.

    1. 7
    2. Julius Thomas
    3. Julius
      Thomas
      TE
    4. REC YDS63
    5. REC TD1

    Thomas had just four targets last week, though he did catch them all for 43 yards. He's still a guy you can start reliably, even with all the mouths to feed in Denver.

    1. 8
    2. Greg Olsen
    3. Greg
      Olsen
      TE
    4. REC YDS59
    5. REC TD1

    The Cardinals are tough against the pass and have good linebackers, but you're starting Olsen if you own him.

    1. 9
    2. Tyler Eifert
    3. Tyler
      Eifert
      TE
    4. REC YDS50
    5. REC TD1

    Eifert had three receptions for 39 yards last week. I still like him better than I like Jermaine Gresham.

    1. 10
    2. Brandon Myers
    3. Brandon
      Myers
      TE
    4. REC YDS48
    5. REC TD1

    Myers disappeared from the offense last week, getting just one target. He'll re-emerge against the Eagles.

    1. 11
    2. Jason Witten
    3. Jason
      Witten
      TE
    4. REC YDS84
    5. REC TD0

    Brent Celek had a nice game by his standard against the Broncos last week. This is a matchup Witten could exploit.

    1. 12
    2. Owen Daniels
    3. Owen
      Daniels
      TE
    4. REC YDS74
    5. REC TD0

    Daniels caught six of his 11 targets for 72 yards against the Seahawks. Start him with confidence every week.

    1. 13
    2. Jared Cook
    3. Jared
      Cook
      TE
    4. REC YDS72
    5. REC TD0

    Cook had four catches for 45 yards a week ago, but he had nine targets and appears to be Sam Bradford's favorite option.

    1. 14
    2. Charles Clay
    3. Charles
      Clay
      TE
    4. REC YDS52
    5. REC TD0

    Clay caught six passes for 42 yards and a TD against the Saints and has really developed into a steady part of the Miami offense.

    1. 15
    2. Brent Celek
    3. Brent
      Celek
      TE
    4. REC YDS50
    5. REC TD0

    Celek caught three of his six targets for 57 yards. You migiht want to stash him now for when your regular tight end is on bye.

    1. 16
    2. Brandon Pettigrew
    3. Brandon
      Pettigrew
      TE
    4. REC YDS46
    5. REC TD0

    Pettigrew was an important factor for the Lions last week, catching seven passes for 54 yards, but that doesn't really move the needle in fantasy leagues.

    1. 17
    2. Coby Fleener
    3. Coby
      Fleener
      TE
    4. REC YDS43
    5. REC TD0

    Fleener caught five passes for 77 yards and a TD against the Jaguars, and looks like he'll put up starters numbers at the position over the course of the entire season.

    1. 18
    2. Sean McGrath
    3. Sean
      McGrath
      TE
    4. REC YDS42
    5. REC TD0

    McGrath caught all five of his targets for 64 yards and a TD last week, and could carve himself out a nice role in this offense. Alex Smith needs an option in the middle of the field.

    1. 19
    2. Martellus Bennett
    3. Martellus
      Bennett
      TE
    4. REC YDS42
    5. REC TD0

    Bennett caught eight of his 12 targets for 90 yards last week. If the Bears fall behind by much, they'll air it out again, but ths matchup could be problematic for Bennett.

    1. 20
    2. Mychal Rivera
    3. Mychal
      Rivera
      TE
    4. REC YDS42
    5. REC TD0

    Rivera has emerged as an option in Oakland, but he shouldn't be considered in fantasy leagues.

    1. 21
    2. Jermaine Gresham
    3. Jermaine
      Gresham
      TE
    4. REC YDS32
    5. REC TD0

    Gresham caught three passes for 53 yards a week ago, but there still aren't enough balls to go around in Cincinnati to make him a fantasy starter.

    1. 22
    2. Dallas Clark
    3. Dallas
      Clark
      TE
    4. REC YDS31
    5. REC TD0

    Clark only caught four passes last week, but he did have nine targets. He's starting to look like a tight end you could use when your regular is on a bye.

    1. 23
    2. Kellen Winslow
    3. Kellen
      Winslow
      TE
    4. REC YDS27
    5. REC TD0

    Winslow caught six passes for 73 yards against the Titans. I hate this matchup for him.

    1. 24
    2. Zach Miller
    3. Zach
      Miller
      TE
    4. REC YDS23
    5. REC TD0

    Miller's an afterthought in this offense. Do not consider him for your roster unless you're desperate.

    1. 25
    2. Delanie Walker
    3. Delanie
      Walker
      TE
    4. REC YDS21
    5. REC TD0

    Walker had just 14 yards last week, though he did catch a one-yard TD pass. You won't want to start him this week.

    1. 26
    2. Scott Chandler
    3. Scott
      Chandler
      TE
    4. REC YDS9
    5. REC TD0

    Chandler caught two passes for 28 yards last week and is far too inconsistent to consider as even a bye-week replacement.
