    Advice: WR Marcus Thigpen has been waived. The fact that the Bucs have signed two tight ends can't be considered a good sign for Austin Seferian-Jenkins' (back) Week 13 status. Williams appeared in nine games between the Patriots and Jaguars last season, catching zero passes. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Thomas sat out Week 12 with his sprained left ankle. His status can't be taken for granted for Week 13, but he's trending in the right direction. "I have had better days, and I have had worse days," Thomas said Monday. "You hope you just wake up one day and it feels good again, but that didn't happen last week. But it has improved." Jacob Tamme was held to just one catch filling in for Thomas last week. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Cameron has suffered three concussions since 2012, but has been assured by doctors he's not putting his long-term health in jeopardy by continuing to play football. He practiced on Friday and is expected to practice this week before suiting up against the Bills. With Josh Gordon back to clear out the middle of the field, Cameron is trending up at the razor-thin tight end position. He needs to be scooped up off waivers if he was dropped in your league.

    Jimmy Graham caught six passes for 47 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' Week 12 loss to the Ravens on Monday night.

    Advice: Graham was targeted a game-high 10 times. His first touchdown came from 10 yards away in the flat to the left in the first quarter, while Graham later scored a garbage-time two-yard touchdown on a back-shoulder pass. Look for Drew Brees to continue to force-feed Graham on the road in Pittsburgh in Week 13. He'll be a top-two tight-end option along with Rob Gronkowski next weekend. Rotoworld.com

It was the Smiths who were making things happen on the outside, however. Daniels will be a bottom-barrel TE1 in Week 13 against a Chargers defense that defends the position well. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: In his first game off sports hernia surgery in Week 11, Rudolph played on just 14 snaps and had no catches. The chains were taken off Sunday, as he went 3-50-0 on five targets and got back to a near every-down role. Given the thin state of the tight end position and Rudolph's red-zone chops, he's a TE1 candidate against the Panthers in Week 13. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Witten in nice spot on Thanksgiving
    The Philadelphia Inquirer suggests the Eagles will have trouble covering Jason Witten in Thursday's game against the Cowboys.

    Advice: Witten does not typically create mismatches at this point in his career. But the Eagles, already without DeMeco Ryans (Achilles), lost Emmanuel Acho (groin) Sunday. Now they'll have to ride with incompetent Casey Matthews as a primary inside linebacker, with rookie Marcus Smith mixing in. Smith is a pass-rusher that was drafted as an outside linebacker. Witten's upside is capped by his limited athletic ability, but he has TE1 appeal Thursday. Rotoworld.com

    Tim Wright played on a season-high 61-of-81 snaps in Sunday's win over the Lions.

    Advice: There was no way to see this coming. Wright's previous season-high in snaps was 21 as the Patriots hadn't been utilizing a lot of "12" packages. Of course, if we knew Wright was going to be on the field so much he would have been an easy TE1 bet because of his wideout-esque skill set. The problem is that we don't know if the Patriots will take the same offensive approach against the Packers in Week 13, making Wright a high-risk, high-reward kind of streamer. Rotoworld.com

So Moeaki, a talented player who was a third-round pick of the Chiefs in 2012, racked up snaps.

Wright gave New England an early 7-3 lead on a four-yard touchdown catch. Wright put the Pats ahead for good on an eight-yard second-quarter score.

It would leave Coby Fleener as a very interesting TE1 plug-n-play as the Jags give up the 11th-most fantasy points to tight ends. The often inefficient Fleener was spectacular after Allen went down against the Patriots last week, finishing with 7-144-0 on seven targets. Rotoworld.com

  • Chip Kelly: We're a one-tight-end offense
    Chip Kelly reiterated that he runs a "one-tight-end offense."

    Advice: "Brent Celek's doing a helluva job. It'd be very [unjust] if I told Brent he has to sit because I want to put someone else on the field. Brent's an outstanding blocker, I think he may be the best blocking tight end in the league," Kelly said. That quote sums up the situation for Zach Ertz, who is only a package player despite unique pass-catching ability. Owners should not be expecting a sudden surge from Ertz's current average of 4.8 targets per game. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Rudolph practicing in full
    Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin) is practicing in full for Week 12.

    Advice: In his first game off sports hernia surgery, Rudolph played on just 29.7 percent of the snaps and saw no targets. With the game on the line, the Vikings chose to go with Chase Ford. We'd expect Rudolph to have a bigger role against the Packers in Week 12, but it's impossible to be certain and the matchup is far more difficult. He'd be a very high-risk fantasy play. Rotoworld.com

    Julius Thomas (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Thomas stretched with his teammates before taking the rest of the day off. He's not in a walking boot or limping around, so he appears to at least have a chance at playing Week 12. There are better tight end options to handcuff Thomas with than his backup Jacob Tamme. Tamme looked bad in Week 11 relief. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: As expected. The Colts initially believed Allen suffered a high-ankle sprain last Sunday night, but they've recently labeled him as day-to-day. Allen has said he hopes to play Week 12 against the Jaguars. He's not off on the right foot for that to happen. It's likely to be Coby Fleener and Jack Doyle on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

    ESPN Colts blogger Mike Wells expects Dwayne Allen (ankle) to miss Week 12.

    Advice: Wells' assertion is based largely on the fact that Indy signed TE Weslye Saunders on Tuesday, but that's indeed usually a tell-tale sign. Of course, it's possible the Colts are simply giving themselves insurance in the event Allen can't go against the Jaguars. His status will be updated on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Julius Thomas (ankle) not in a walking boot
    Julius Thomas (ankle) was not in a walking boot Monday and was not walking with a limp.

    Advice: This confirms that Thomas does not have any serious kind of sprain. He was also spotted slipping a basketball shoe onto his nicked up wheel, a great sign that there's no swelling. Although Thomas remains questionable for Week 12 against the Dolphins, he's certainly not ruled out and truly appears day to day. Jacob Tamme is the weak handcuff for owners seeking insurance.

    The Denver Post confirms that Julius Thomas' ankle injury is "not as bad as initially feared," but believes it "might be difficult" for him to suit up in Week 12.

    Advice: Both local and national outlets are now reporting that Thomas has avoided serious injury, but considering his history of ankle issues, we agree with the assessment that he's questionable — at best — for Week 12. Thomas almost certainly won't practice on Wednesday, and it might be difficult to gauge his status before Friday. Owners need to have a back-up plan at the ready. Rotoworld.com

    Dwayne Allen (ankle) says he's day to day, and "hopeful" of playing in Week 12 against the Jaguars.

    Advice: Allen's words cut against the report that he suffered a high-ankle sprain, but players are always overly optimistic about return timetables. For now, Allen should be considered no better than 50-50 to suit up next Sunday. Owners need to have a back-up plan in place. Allen's status will be updated no later than the Colts' Wednesday return to practice. Rotoworld.com

  • Rudolph only played in passing situations
    Kyle Rudolph played on 14-of-47 snaps (29.7 percent) in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

    Advice: In his first game off sports hernia surgery, Rudolph primarily played in passing situations. Rhett Ellison (24 snaps) and Chase Ford (22) were the early-down tight ends. It was still disappointing to see Rudolph get zero targets in the best matchup he'll see all season. With Teddy Bridgewater struggling and a tough spot against Green Bay in Week 12, Rudolph is better left as a bench hold. Rotoworld.com

    Jimmy Graham played on 54-of-71 snaps (76.0 percent) in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

    Advice: It's the highest percentage of snaps Graham has played since Week 4. So even though he appeared to tweak his troublesome shoulder during the disappointing three-catch outing, it doesn't look like there was any real concern from the training staff. Graham has an extra day to get right with the Saints facing the Ravens on Monday Night Football in Week 12. Drew Brees should really force-feed his tight end going forward, especially with Brandin Cooks (thumb) out 2-4 weeks. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Dwayne Allen has a high ankle sprain
    The Colts believe Dwayne Allen suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday night's loss to the Patriots.

    Advice: High ankle sprains can vary in severity from the kind that only cost Jamaal Charles one game earlier this year to the kind that can sideline a player for a month or more. So we'll have to wait for further testing results before getting a timetable on Allen. But it's certainly not a good injury for a supremely talented player whose career was already stunted by a severe hip injury in 2013. With Allen sidelined for the majority of Sunday night's game, Coby Fleener put 7-144-0 on the Patriots. Rotoworld.com

  • Coby Fleener has career game against Patriots
    Coby Fleener caught seven passes for 144 yards in Sunday night's Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

    Advice: The Patriots gameplanned around T.Y. Hilton, leaving Andrew Luck to check down to Fleener and Reggie Wayne. Fleener was an every-down tight end after Dwayne Allen went down with an ankle injury in the second quarter. He had already started to come on last week as one of Andrew Luck's favorite targets. With a Week 12 matchup against Jacksonville, Fleener would be a plug-and-play TE1 if Allen misses time. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Ertz flashed his unique skill set while reaching behind him on a crossing route for nice gain late. However, his impact all came in garbage time as the Eagles got absolutely ripped. A complementary player in this Chip Kelly scheme, Ertz is now losing targets to emerging Jordan Matthews. He's a low-floor fantasy play, even in a plus Week 12 matchup against the Titans.

    Jacob Tamme caught four passes for 31 yards in the Broncos' Week 11 loss to the Rams.

    Advice: Tamme was targeted a team-high 10 times after Julius Thomas went down with an ankle injury. The talent gap between the two is monstrous. Tamme failed to locate one pass and tripped over his own feet on another down the sideline. If Thomas can't play against Miami in Week 12, Tamme will be a mid-range TE2. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Bennett has taken a backseat in Chicago's passing attack since Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall recovered from early-season injuries. The return of promising No. 3 wideout Marquess Wilson could also cut into Bennett's targets, looking forward. "Marty B" does get a more favorable matchup in Week 12 against a Buccaneers defense that is leaky versus tight ends. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Donnell's touchdown was creative as he lined up in the fullback spot, Eli Manning play-faked to Rashad Jennings and then hit LD up the seam for a 19-yard touchdown. He almost had another touchdown late in the game as he was targeted on a crucial third-down goal-line fade that just barely fell incomplete. With 11 catches and two touchdowns in his last three games, Donnell will be a low-end TE1 against the Cowboys in Week 12. Rotoworld.com

Graham took a savage cheap shot from S George Iloka on the Saints' opening drive, appearing to tweak his troublesome shoulder. He stayed in the game, however, and was never announced with an injury.

    Kyle Rudolph was held without a catch in the Vikings' Week 11 loss to the Bears.

    Advice: Rudolph played, but was not targeted and was clearly on a snap count in his first game back from sports hernia surgery. Fantasy owners may want to see Rudolph actually play effectively on a game before firing him back up as a TE1 following this dud. It doesn't help that Teddy Bridgewater and the entirety of Minnesota's passing "attack" has done little to nothing in five straight games. The Vikings host the Packers in Week 12. Green Bay is stingy against tight ends. Rotoworld.com
