  • Cards send TE Troy Niklas to injured reserve
    Cardinals placed TE Troy Niklas on injured reserve with a wrist injury, ending his season.

    Advice: Niklas needs four months of rehab. The No. 52 overall pick of the 2014 draft, Niklas has been bitten by the injury bug, sandwiching a 16-game 2015 with injury-shortened affairs. He was viewed as a blocker coming out of Notre Dame, and has lived up to his rep with only eight career catches. Niklas won't be guaranteed to make the 53-man roster in the final year of his rookie contract. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:24 pm

  • Report: Tyler Eifert (ankle) unlikely for Week 4
    ESPN's Bob Holtzman reports Tyler Eifert (ankle) is expected to miss Week 4 against the Dolphins.

    Advice: Eifert has hinted at a return this week but with Cincinnati playing on Thursday night, time is not on his side. He hasn't gone through a full practice yet and has yet to make an appearance in 11-on-11 drills. The Bengals are still calling him a game-time decision, but he's looking closer to doubtful than probable. Even if Eifert played this week, he would have been on a snap count. Look for Eifert to return in Week 5 against Dallas. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:02 am

    Advice: Eifert added he is trying to patient and trust the process. The tight end returned to practice last week and coach Marvin Lewis has said he is "close" to returning, but these comments make it seem like he is still a week away. That would make sense with the Bengals playing on Thursday night. Even if Eifert suits up, he is expected to be on a snap count. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:31 am

    Jacob Tamme caught 3-of-4 targets for 28 yards in the Falcons' Week 3 win over the Saints on Monday night.

    Advice: After seeing eight targets in each of the Falcons' first two games, Tamme was an afterthought on Monday night with the Falcons' running backs doing all the damage and Matt Ryan spreading the ball around to eight different targets. Tamme's lone missed target was an end-zone try that sailed incomplete. Tamme will be a borderline TE1/2 next week against the Panthers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 pm

  • Fleener shows life, drops 7-109-1 on Falcons
    Coby Fleener caught 7-of-11 targets for 109 yards and one touchdown in the Saints' 45-32, Week 3 loss to the Falcons on Monday night.

    Advice: After totaling three catches for 35 yards on 12 combined targets Weeks 1 and 2, Fleener busted out in a big way against a soft Falcons defense. He caught his first ball for a meager five yards before capping the Saints' first drive with a two-yard touchdown. Fleener's night was still chock full of mistakes, including a pair of drops and a bad holding penalty that took a long run away from Mark Ingram. But Fleener did damage up the seams with a long catch before the half and then a 36-yard gain in the fourth quarter to set up Ingram's five-yard score. Those that dropped Fleener are probably kicking themselves. He'll be in another elite spot Week 4 at San Diego. The Chargers have elite corners, but had given up the most catches and most yards to tight ends entering Monday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:51 pm

  • Jets claim Austin Seferian-Jenkins on waivers
    Jets claimed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins off waivers from the Bucs.

    Advice: Jets OC Chan Gailey has a reputation for "not using tight ends," but he also has a reputation for maximizing talent, which Seferian-Jenkins obviously has in spades despite all of his issues off the field. Seferian-Jenkins was popped for DUI last week, leading to his release from the Bucs. Picking him up is an extremely low-risk, high-upside maneuver by Jets GM Mike Maccagnan. Assuming Seferian-Jenkins is intent on continuing his football career, he should be able to earn a role in the offense by the middle of next month. ASJ still lacks re-draft value, but he remains a hold in Dynasty leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:17 pm

    Advice: Daily Slant: With Hunter Henry still priced at the minimum in a dream match-up with the Saints, he's a great value target in DFS for Week 4. The Saints allowed more FPPG to TEs than the highest scorer at the position, Rob Gronkowski, averaged last season, so it's hard not to get excited about Henry's potential $/point value in what is expected to be one of the highest scoring games of the weekend.

Both of his catches came in the first half before the Eagles laid waste to the Steelers with a 21-point third quarter. Burton earned more targets than blocking tight end Brent Celek but Celek outgained him by 42 yards.

Allen theoretically got a boost with Donte Moncrief (shoulder blade) hurt, but his role didn't change much in the first game after Moncrief's injury.

With the Steelers way behind, Ben Roethlisberger looked to Antonio Brown to gain huge chunks of yards while ignoring James, who functions as the Steelers’ primary check-down man.

  • Travis Kelce scores only offensive TD for KC
    Travis Kelce caught 6-of-7 targets for 89 yards and a touchdown Week 3 against the Jets.

    Advice: The Jets had no idea what to do with Kelce Sunday. He got open twice on shallow crossers early in the game in the red zone, diving for the pylon on a 12-yard touchdown on the first and getting tackled at the three on the other. He failed to convert on a screen on the next play. Kelce started the second half with a big play as well, easily running away from Calvin Pryor on a slant and running over Marcus Gilchrist to finish the run. He likely could have had an even bigger game, but the Jets' ineptitude on offense allowed the Chiefs to sit on the ball in the second half. Kelce’s upside is limited by his offense, but he is among the most reliable options in the league. He will be a solid TE1 on Sunday night against the Steelers. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:32 pm

He’s settled in nicely as Joe Flacco’s primary check-down man with 20 targets over the last two weeks.

    Advice: After flexing his muscles with 135 yards over his first two contests, Thomas was rarely seen or heard from in Week 2. Four of his five targets came after halftime as the Jaguars worked to chip away at a 16-7 third-quarter deficit. He saw fewer targets than Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee.

    Delanie Walker (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Raiders after missing Friday's practice.

    Advice: Walker missed Wednesday's session, was limited on Thursday, and was held out on Friday, which constitutes a downgrade. Even if Walker is indeed active versus Oakland, he will be tough to trust as a surefire fantasy TE1. The Titans are very thin in the pass-catcher corps, which is concerning for Marcus Mariota. Tajae Sharpe will likely have to do the heaviest lifting. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:12 am

  • Bucs give up on Seferian-Jenkins after arrest
    Buccaneers waived TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

    Advice: Cameron Brate and Luke Stocker will be the Bucs' tight ends the rest of the way. The 38th overall pick in the 2014 draft, Seferian-Jenkins was known to have drinking problems at the University of Washington and was popped for DUI on Friday morning, leading to his release. Some team will undoubtedly give the 24-year-old another chance, but Seferian-Jenkins will eventually face a suspension from the NFL. ASJ's loss is a blow to Jameis Winston's fantasy outlook. Seferian-Jenkins at least had potential, and the Bucs have gotten very little from their complementary pass catchers behind Mike Evans. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:08 am

    Advice: He didn't practice at all this week, so the Chargers will turn to rookie Hunter Henry at tight end. Gates' absence could also mean a few more targets for Travis Benjamin, Tyrell Williams, and Dontrelle Inman. Gates is 36 years old and was popped for PEDs last year.

  • Eifert will be 'eased in' when ready to play
    Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said Friday that Tyler Eifert (ankle, doubtful) will be eased back into action once he's ready to play.

    Advice: Eifert will not play Sunday against the Broncos. Thursday Night Football against the Dolphins in Week 4 is a possibility, though Eifert won't handle a full complement of snaps if he gets the green light. Per Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson, "Lewis did say when Eifert does come back, he won’t play a full game and is going to play a partial amount of snaps." Perhaps Eifert will be limited against Miami, then promoted back to a full-time player in Week 5 at Dallas following the ten-day layoff. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:53 am

  • Ertz (ribs) to be a game-time decision in Week 3
    Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Zach Ertz (ribs) will be a game-time decision against the Steelers in Week 3.

    Advice: Ertz sat out practice last week and didn't suit up for Monday night's game in Chicago. Trey Burton drew the start in his place and played reasonably well, hauling in five catches for 49 yards and a touchdown. Pederson said cornerback Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) will also be a game-time decision for Week 3. Daily Slant: Assuming Ertz sits out again this week, Trey Burton will be a fine GPP play at the TE position against a Steelers defense that has been picked on in that regard over the first two games. Cincinnati targeted their TEs a total of 12 times, and while those were turned into just 44 yards, they barely missed on some TD opportunities. Jordan Reed saw 11 targets against this defense in Week 1. Burton tied for 2nd on the team in targets Monday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:13 am

    Trey Burton caught 5-of-7 targets for 49 yards and one touchdown in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Bears.

    Advice: His seven targets were second-most on the team behind Jordan Matthews. With Zach Ertz (ribs) out, Burton was a fixture in the Eagles' "12 personnel" featuring one running back and two tight ends alongside Brent Celek. Burton was the pass catcher, and converted a couple of big third downs before finding the end zone from two yards out on a tight end screen.

  • Witten goes 3-51 against Redskins
    Jason Witten caught 3-of-4 targets for 51 yards in the Cowboys' Week 2 win over the Redskins.

    Advice: It was a slight letdown following Witten's 14-target opener, but he remains a big part of the Cowboys' offense and a safety valve for rookie Dak Prescott. Witten gets a tougher Week 3 matchup against the Bears, who are strong at inside linebacker. He will be on the TE1 borderline in fantasy for that game. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 1:51 pm

  • Delanie Walker comes alive as TEN upsets DET
    Delanie Walker caught 6-of-6 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 2 upset of the Lions.

    Advice: The Titans promised Walker would be more involved and he was, dusting the Detroit defense in the middle of the field and turning in a standout fantasy performance capped by a 30-yard touchdown throw from Marcus Mariota. The Titans proactively fed Walker on tight end screens. It remains slightly concerning that Walker has only 11 targets through two games, but he will continue to be a strong TE1 option in Week 3 against the Raiders. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 1:17 pm

  • Tyler Eifert among Bengals' Week 2 inactives
    Bengals declared TE Tyler Eifert, QB Jeff Driskel, WR Cody Core, CB Chykie Brown, CB KeiVarae Russell, OL Christian Westerman, and DL DeShawn Williams inactive for Week 2 against the Steelers.

    Advice: ESPN's Bob Holtzman said Eifert is still "a few weeks" away, but he was on the field running routes before the game. He is expected back sometime between Week 4-6. C.J. Uzomah will start in his place, but Tyler Kroft is expected to have a bigger role this week. Rotoworld.com Sep 18, 8:36 am

  • Chargers expected to give Gates bigger role
    ESPN’s Eric Williams expects the Chargers to feature Antonio Gates more in the pass game.

    Advice: Gates was a Week 1 non-factor, catching three passes and playing 48-of-73 snaps. He projects for more third down and red-zone targets with Keenan Allen done for the year. Gates’ snaps should stay the same, but his weekly floor is higher. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 11:29 am

  • Jared Cook not worried about lack of targets
    Jared Cook said he is not worried about his lack of targets Week 1.

    Advice: Cook said he had a few more plays called for him, but they were scrapped because of the Jaguars' coverage. Even though he was only targeted twice, Cook says it was "fun" playing in the offense. "It’s hard for the defense to be right," Cook said. "It’s a fun offense to be a part of because any given day, or any given Sunday, anybody is going to get off." Cook should have bigger days, but he needs to prove a consistent part of the offense before getting fantasy consideration. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 9:01 am

  • Burton will have bigger role with Ertz out
    Eagles TE Trey Burton will take on a bigger offensive role with Zach Ertz (ribs) sidelined.

    Advice: Burton has just three career catches, but he was talked up all offseason. "Trey repeatedly showed day in, day out – it just wasn't an occasional thing for him to keep flashing in practice, to make plays," OC Frank Reich said. "It shows a lot of natural ability, instinctive ability. It's a big opportunity for him." Burton could match his career target total (4) on Monday night, but there are better streaming options available. Dennis Pitta, Virgil Green, and Jesse James top the list.

  • Zach Ertz (ribs) officially ruled out for MNF
    Eagles coach Doug Pederson officially ruled out Zach Ertz (ribs) for Monday night at the Bears.

    Advice: CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) will also sit out. With Ertz sidelined, Trey Burton is expected to see more work, but he is not a realistic streaming option outside of deep leagues. Dennis Pitta, Virgil Green, and Jesse James are all solid replacements. Rotoworld.com Sep 17, 7:46 am
