For The Last 15 Days
 
Rob Gronkowski, TE, NEP12/21/2014 6:17:00 PM
Description: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski found the end zone in Week 16.
Insight: It was his 12th score of the season. Gronkowski finished with six receptions for 31 yards. He is arguably the best tight end in the NFL.
Heath Miller, TE, PIT12/21/2014 6:09:00 PM
Description: Steelers tight end Heath Miller recorded seven receptions for 68 yards on Sunday.
Insight: He saw eight targets and took advantage. However, Miller is more of a TE2 with all the options in Pittsburgh.
Travis Kelce, TE, KAN12/21/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce did not do much on Sunday.
Insight: He had four receptions for 31 yards on seven targets. Kelce is a borderline TE1 for Week 17 for leagues that are still going.
Jimmy Graham, TE, NOS12/21/2014 5:48:00 PM
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was better on Sunday, but not as good as owners would have liked.
Insight: He had six receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown. Graham also just missed a second score, as he was stuffed at the goalline and eventually fumbled on the play.
Greg Olsen, TE, CAR12/21/2014 5:38:00 PM
Description: Panthers tight end Greg Olsen was invisible in Week 16.
Insight: He saw only three targets, and caught just one pass for 21 yards. Olsen is still a TE1.
Jordan Cameron, TE, CLE12/21/2014 5:34:00 PM
Description: Browns tight end Jordan Cameron caught an 81-yard touchdown pass on Sunday.
Insight: He finsihed with three catches for a team-high 88 yards. So, obviously most of his damage was done on one play.
Kyle Rudolph, TE, MIN12/21/2014 11:37:00 AM
Description: Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph (ankle/knee) is officially out for Week 16.
Insight: He was not a great option as is. Rhett Ellison will start in Rudolph's place.
Antonio Gates, TE, SDC12/21/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Chargers tight end Antonio Gates had a nice night against the 49ers.
Insight: He had seven receptions for 92 yards and two scores. Gates now has 65 catches for 754 and an impressive 12 touchdowns in 2014.
Zach Ertz, TE, PHI12/20/2014 7:46:00 PM
Description: Eagles tight end Zach Ertz caught a franchise record 15 passes during Saturday's loss versus Washington.
Insight: He had 115 yards and 18 targets. Owners have been looking for this production all season long.
Delanie Walker, TE, TEN12/19/2014 9:18:00 AM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker was quiet Thursday night catching just four balls for 54 yards.
Insight: Walker was handicapped by his mediocre quarterback who could only manufacture one touchdown drive in 60 minutes.
Josh Hill, TE, NOS12/16/2014 9:45:00 AM
Description: Saints backup tight end Josh Hill vultured two touchdowns from Jimmy Graham Monday night against Chicago.
Insight: They were his only two receptions of the season. Hill doesn't see much playing time, but has four touchdowns in his 14 total catches this season.
Jimmy Graham, TE, NOS12/16/2014 9:38:00 AM
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham still isn't performing to the high standards we expect from him, but at least he was part of the passing game against the Bears.
Insight: After a goose egg in Week 13 and just three catches for 25 yards last weekend, Graham caught five balls for 87 yards.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, TAM12/15/2014 4:46:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (back) was placed on injured reserve.
Insight: His season is officially over after catching 21 passes for 221 yards and two scores.
Antonio Gates, TE, SDC12/15/2014 11:28:00 AM
Description: Chargers tight end Antonio Gates finished with a team-high seven targets, catching six, for 54 yards and a touchdown against Denver.
Insight: The Rivers-to-Gates touchdown pass was the 67th of their career tying them for sixth place all-time with Drew Brees and Marques Colston.
Julius Thomas, TE, DENCold12/15/2014 11:17:00 AM
Description: Broncos tight end Julius Thomas (ankle) got in for 29 of 66 plays against San Diego.
Insight: Thomas was also active in Week 14, but didn't see any snaps, so this was an improvement, but he didn't help fantasy owners with just one catch for 30 yards.
Delanie Walker, TE, TEN12/15/2014 11:06:00 AM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker took advantage of the absence of the Titans top two receivers and caufght four balls for 93 yards.
Insight: Walker did most of his damage in the fourth quarter. He is still a borderline TE1.
Kyle Rudolph, TE, MIN12/15/2014 10:29:00 AM
Description: Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph caught a season-high seven balls for 69 yards.
Insight: Rudolph seems all the way back from sports hernia surgery. He will be a borderline TE1 the rest of the way.
Vernon Davis, TE, SFXCold12/15/2014 10:08:00 AM
Description: 49ers tight end Vernon Davis didn't catch a pass Sunday against Seattle.
Insight: How can a player with his talent level be playing so poorly all season? Davis remains the biggest bust among tight ends in 2014 and shouldn't be started. Since a two-touchdown opening game, Davis hasn't cracked the five-point mark.
Jason Witten, TE, DAL12/15/2014 9:36:00 AM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten caught seven of a team-high nine targets for 69 yards.
Insight: While he didn't get into the end zone, Witten was busy catching key first down passes for most of the night.
Larry Donnell, TE, NYG12/14/2014 7:50:00 PM
Description: Giants tight end Larry Donnell caught both his targets for 11 yards in Week 15.
Insight: Eli Manning targeted Odell Backham Jr. all day, who can blame him, so no other receiver had many opportunities for New York. Donnell remains a borderline TE1.
Rob Gronkowski, TE, NEP12/14/2014 7:35:00 PM
Description: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski did not catch a pass in the first half, but that was no big deal for Tom Brady's favorite target.
Insight: Gronkowski made some big plays in the third quarter as the Patriots outscored the Dolphins in the quarter, 24-0. Gronkowski had three catches for 96 yards and a touchdown. He is the top fantasy tight end in the league.
Mychal Rivera, TE, OAK12/14/2014 7:21:00 PM
Description: Fantasy owners cannot ignore Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera any longer.
Insight: Rivera had seven more catches for 39 yards in Week 15. That yardage total is not great, but it is the third straight week Rivera was heavily invovled in the passing game. He is a gamble, but one worth going for if owners need tight end help.
Travis Kelce, TE, KAN12/14/2014 7:19:00 PM
Description: Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce had a big fantasy day in Week 15.
Insight: Kelce had five catches for 59 yards and a touchdown. Those numbers aren't huge but for a very inconsistent position, that kind of production is big in the playoffs. Kelce is a solid TE1 with a juicy matchup next week.
Coby Fleener, TE, IND12/14/2014 7:02:00 PM
Description: Colts tight end Coby Fleener caught two passes for 32 yards in Week 15.
Insight: Fleener and fellow tight end Dwyane Allen each had two grabs with Allen getting the touchdown. If Allen plays, Fleener taks a back sit to him in terms of fantasy value.
Dwayne Allen, TE, IND12/14/2014 7:00:00 PM
Description: Colts tight end Dwayne Allen caught a touchdown on Sunday.
Insight: Allen had just two catches for 16 yards but salvaged the day with the touchdown grab. He is a borderline TE1 for the rest of the season.
Owen Daniels, TE, BAL12/14/2014 6:42:00 PM
Description: Ravens tight end Owen Daniels scored the lone touchdown of the Ravens vs. Jaguars game in Week 15.
Insight: Daniels scored on a 3-yard touchdown catch. He also had a 29-yard catch. Daniels finished with four catches for 62 yards and the touchdown.
Marcedes Lewis, TE, JAC12/14/2014 6:42:00 PM
Description: Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis has two catches for 22 yards on Sunday.
Insight: Lewis is a TE2 in this dreadful offense.
Greg Olsen, TE, CAR12/14/2014 6:21:00 PM
Description: Panthers tight end Greg Olsen led the team with 10 catches for 110 yards.
Insight: Olsen and Kelvin Benjamin didn't mind Derek Anderson at quarterback as both received 13 targets. Unfortunately, Jericho Cotchery caught the only touchdown. Olsen remains a strong TE1 consideration no matter who plays quarterback.
Scott Chandler, TE, BUF12/14/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Bills tight end Scott Chandler did very little versus the Packers.
Insight: Even at an inconsistent position, Chanlder is a TE2 at best.
Jordan Cameron, TE, CLE12/14/2014 5:42:00 PM
Description: Browns tight end Jordan Cameron had just one catch for four yards.
Insight: No Browns pass catcher had more than 10 yards besides Josh Gordon. Until Johnny Manziel proves himself, Cameron must be benched in fantasy.
Heath Miller, TE, PIT12/14/2014 5:18:00 PM
Description: Steelers tight end Heath Miller continues to be Ben Roethlisberger's safety blanket.
Insight: Miller is not going to light up any fantasy scoreboard, but he will have a few important catches every week. In Week 15, he caught the third-and-one pass from Roethlisberger to seal the victory. Miller finished with four catches and 68 yards.
Julius Thomas, TE, DEN12/14/2014 3:13:00 PM
Description: Broncos tight end Julius Thomas (ankle) is active for Week 15, but didn't get into the game.
Insight: Thomas was also active in Week 14, but didn't see any snaps. Thius time fantasy owners hope he gets his full workload.
Greg Olsen, TE, CAR12/14/2014 12:16:00 PM
Description: Panthers tight end Greg Olsen is active for Week 15.
Insight: Olsen is a TE1 even with Cam Newton out. Olsen caught eight balls and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Buccaneers with Derek Anderson at quarterback.
Vance McDonald, TE, SFX12/9/2014 2:57:00 PM
Description: San Francisco backup tight end Vance McDonald (back) has been placed on injured reserve, ending his season.
Insight: Vernon Davis has been healthy, so McDonald hasn't seen much time lately. This shouldn't change any fantasy rosters.
Travis Kelce, TE, KAN12/8/2014 11:30:00 AM
Description: Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught seven balls for a team-leading 110 yards.
Insight: It was a season high total for Kelce. He and Jamaal Charles are probably the team's two most reliable receivers.
Julius Thomas, TE, DEN12/8/2014 11:24:00 AM
Description: Broncos tight end Julius Thomas (ankle) was active for Week 14, but didn't get into the game.
Insight: Thomas was just a tease for fantasy owners, activated, but not played. He wasn't on the field for a single snap.
Mychal Rivera, TE, OAK12/8/2014 11:02:00 AM
Description: Oakland tight end Mychal Rivera caught all seven targets for 109 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Rivera had been invisible for the previous three games, so this was a pleasant surprise. He's been a low-end fantasy option this season and should improve as his rookie quarterback gets better with experience.
Antonio Gates, TE, SDC12/8/2014 9:44:00 AM
Description: Chargers tight end Antonio Gates finished with a team-high eight targets, catching five, for 34 yards on Sunday.
Insight: With Keenan Allen blanketed and out of the picture, Philip Rivers tried to get Gates involved, but he didn't do much with the opportunities.
Tim Wright, TE, NEPCold12/8/2014 9:34:00 AM
Description: Patriots backup tight end Tim Wright was a non-factor in the game against San Diego.
Insight: Tom Brady targeted him just twice and he came up empty. Wright has gone two games without a touchdown reception and he's total dependent on getting into the end zone for his fantasy value as he has just 24 reception for 232 yards this season.
Rob Gronkowski, TE, NEP12/8/2014 9:31:00 AM
Description: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was un-guardable last night catching eight balls for 87 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Gronkowski is arguably the top fantasy tight end in the game and last night whenever he was single-covered he was open.
Marcedes Lewis, TE, JAC12/7/2014 7:19:00 PM
Description: Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis recorded a team-high 69 receiving yards in Week 14.
Insight: Lewis had three catches on four targets, and is a TE2 in this dreadful offense.
Jordan Cameron, TE, CLE12/7/2014 6:56:00 PM
Description: Browns tight end Jordan Cameron returned to action with 41 yards.
Insight: He did so on four catches, which led the team. Cameron is a borderline TE1.
Coby Fleener, TE, IND12/7/2014 6:50:00 PM
Description: Colts tight end Coby Fleener caught five passes in Week 14.
Insight: He recorded 56 yards on 10 targets. Dwayne Allen returned to action with only one catch for five yards on three targets. Fleener looks like the top tight end right now.
Owen Daniels, TE, BAL12/7/2014 6:39:00 PM
Description: Ravens tight end Owen Daniels caught two passes for 27 yards.
Insight: He had been solid for a period f time, but is more of a TE2 these days. There are better options out there.
Jimmy Graham, TE, NOS12/7/2014 6:12:00 PM
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham continued not to produce on Sunday.
Insight: After a goose egg last week, Graham had only three catches for 25 yards. Owners cannot panic, even if they are unhappy.
Greg Olsen, TE, CAR12/7/2014 6:06:00 PM
Description: Panthers tight end Greg Olsen recorded a team-high 10 catches and 72 receiving yards on Sunday.
Insight: He also had a touchdown, and is a solid TE1 for the rest of the season.
Delanie Walker, TE, TEN12/7/2014 6:01:00 PM
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker did not do much on Sunday.
Insight: He had four receptions for 27 yards, on 10 targets. Walker is still a borderline TE1.
Larry Donnell, TE, NYG12/7/2014 5:55:00 PM
Description: Giants tight end Larry Donnell caught four passes for 28 yards in Sunday's win against Tennessee.
Insight: Donnell is really dependent on scoring a touchdown, but continues to be a borderline TE1.
Jared Cook, TE, STL12/7/2014 5:41:00 PM
Description: Rams tight end Jared Cook had a team-high 61 receiving yards in Week 14.
Insight: He did so on four receptions, and also caught two touchdowns. Cook now has three scores this season, but is no more than a TE2.
Heath Miller, TE, PIT12/7/2014 5:28:00 PM
Description: Steelers tight end Heath Miller made his lone catch count on Sunday.
Insight: It was also for only one yard, but also went down as a touchdown. Miller now has three scores this season.
Joseph Fauria, TE, DET12/7/2014 3:18:00 PM
Description: Lions tight end Joseph Fauria left Sunday's game with an ankle injury.
Insight: Update: Fauria has returned to action.
Julius Thomas, TE, DEN12/7/2014 3:08:00 PM
Description: Broncos tight end Julius Thomas (ankle) was limited all week, but is active for Week 14.
Insight: We expected him to return for Week 14, but that doesn't mean he'll see a lot of targets. Peyton Manning has plenty of other options. The Broncos tight end leads all pass catchers with 12 touchdown receptions.
Joseph Fauria, TE, DET12/7/2014 1:22:00 PM
Description: Lions tight end Joseph Fauria left Sunday's game with an ankle injury.
Insight: He is officially questionable to return.
Joseph Fauria, TE, DET12/7/2014 12:21:00 PM
Description: Lions tight end Joseph Fauria will start on Sunday.
Insight: He is starting over Eric Ebron, and with Tampa Bay giving up a lot of production to opposing tight ends, Fauria could be an intriguing play. He is a TE2 with upside.
Coby Fleener, TE, IND12/7/2014 12:06:00 PM
Description: Colts tight end Coby Fleener may take a small step back in Week 14.
Insight: With Dwayne Allen returning from an ankle injury, Fleener may not see the action he was seeing over the past few weeks. However, his hot play has given him borderline TE1 status this week against the Browns.
Dwayne Allen, TE, IND12/7/2014 12:05:00 PM
Description: Colts tight end Dwayne Allen (ankle) is officially active Sunday against the Browns.
Insight: Allen will be a borderline TE1, and will take some value away from fellow tight end, Coby Fleener.
Jordan Cameron, TE, CLE12/7/2014 11:58:00 AM
Description: Browns tight end Jordan Cameron (concussion) is finally ready to return to action.
Insight: He will play Sunday against the Colts, his first game since Week 6. Consider Cameron a borderline TE1.
