Jimmy Graham has the skills to burn the Jets on Sunday, but question marks at quarterback for Seattle put a major dent in his value.
Zach Miller's value in Week 4 could come down to who starts under center, as he was a favorite check-down target of Brian Hoyer's last week, but in either case he'll be facing a Lions defense that has allowed a league-high 10 touchdown passes including five to tight ends.
Rob Gronkowski should see more action against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday as he continues to work his way back from a hamstring issue, though being without Tom Brady could limit his upside.
Dwayne Allen is a weekly consideration because of quarterback Andrew Luck's tendency to throw to tight ends in the red zone, but he becomes even more so in Week 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars since the Colts have already announced wide receiver Donte Moncrief (shoulder) would miss 4-to-6 weeks.
Jason Witten is mostly settling for a blocking role in a run-first Dallas offense, but Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham's big game against these 49ers last week gives the veteran hope for a vintage receiving performance Sunday.
Cameron Brate caught two touchdowns last week and may be key in unlocking Denver’s tough defense, as they allowed the 11th-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends last season.

Gary Barnidge will be up against Washington on Sunday after catching nine passes for 103 yards over his last two contests.

C.J. Fiedorowicz has just four targets through three games and should be a non-factor in Week 4 against the Tennessee Titans.
Lance Kendricks didn't catch a single ball last week, and will probably be asked almost exclusively to block against a Cardinals team that ranks sixth against the pass and 29th against the run.
Virgil Green didn't play in Week 3 due to a calf injury and, even if he suits up Sunday, will be a risky play against a Buccaneers defense that has yet to allow a touchdown to a tight end this season.
