    • Brandon Myers catches four passes in finale
      Brandon Myers caught 4-of-6 targets for 21 yards in the Bucs' Week 17 loss to the Saints.

      Advice: Myers caught just 22 passes between Austin Seferian-Jenkins injuries this season, but restructured his contract earlier this weekend. Going on 30, he should be back with the Bucs in 2015. Rotoworld.com

    • Brent Celek gets a TD in finale
      Brent Celek caught one pass for a one-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 win

      Advice: It was Celek's first touchdown of the season. Relegated to a strict blocking role, he finishes his fifth NFL season with just 32-340-1. Celek will still likely be back at his $4.725 million salary because he's a valuable on-field piece outside the box score. Rotoworld.com

    • Zach Ertz closes with 4-56-0
      Zach Ertz caught four passes for 56 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Giants.

      Advice: One of our favorite preseason breakout candidates at tight end, Ertz was not utilized in a fantasy friendly fashion. Chip Kelly treated him as a complementary piece instead of a featured player, limiting snaps to certain packages and not getting red-zone looks. We still saw major ability in the supremely athletic Ertz, who had a 15-catch game in Week 15 and finishes with 58-702-3. His 2015 offseason progress in the scheme will be well worth watching as he heads into his third NFL season. Rotoworld.com

    • Niles Paul catches two passes vs. Cowboys
      Niles Paul caught 2-of-3 targets for 19 yards in the Redskins' Week 17 loss to the Cowboys.

      Advice: A fourth-year pro, Paul coasted to new career highs in catches (39) and yards (507). He scored only one touchdown, but proved he could be a legit threat as a pass-catching tight end whenever Jordan Reed was sidelined. Headed to the open market, Paul will be a potential low-cost bargain wherever he ends up. A former receiver, Paul is definitely a name for fantasy players to keep an eye on. Rotoworld.com

      Adrien Robinson had zero catches on one target in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Eagles.

      Advice: Robinson was considered the favorite to open the season as the Giants' tight end, but he blew the chance and was forced to watch Larry Donnell break out. It's a major red flag on Robinson's outlook going forward. His third NFL season ends with just five catches -- the first five grabs of his career. Rotoworld.com

      Scott Chandler caught one pass for 20 yards Week 17 against the Patriots.

Chandler took a step back in 2014, finishing with 47 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns after cracking the 650-yard mark in 2013. Just finishing the first year of a two-year deal, Chandler will almost certainly be the Bills starting tight end in 2015. Rotoworld.com

      Jordan Reed caught 9-of-10 targets for 70 yards in the Redskins' Week 17 loss to the Cowboys.

      Advice: The catches tied a season high, while the yards were Reed's third most of 2014. In between injuries, Reed continued to show the promise he flashed as a rookie, averaging 4.5 catches for 42 yards in the 11 games he managed to appear in. The problem, of course, is Reed's continued propensity for soft-tissue ailments, particularly hamstring. Reed's athletic upside will have him on the TE1 radar for 2015, but his downside is well established. Reed has missed 12 games across only two NFL seasons. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Donnell came from off the pace to win the Giants' camp battle for the starting tight end job. But he immediately flashed starting ability, going 5-56-1 in Week 1 and finishing his breakout second season with 63-623-6. The Giants reportedly see "LD" as their long-term option at tight end, which will put him on the back-end TE1 radar in 2015. Just realize he'll have to share targets with Odell Beckham, Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Sims finishes his second NFL season with 24 catches, 284 yards, and a pair of TDs. He flashed quality starting-caliber ability in spot starts when Charles Clay battled a knee injury this year. Also a plus blocker, Sims is one of the NFL's top No. 2 tight ends. With Clay headed for offseason free agency, Sims could be a sneaky low-end TE1 in 2015 if Clay is allowed to walk. Rotoworld.com

      Jets TE Jeff Cumberland caught 2-of-3 targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

      Advice: Cumberland spent 2014 in a rotation with rookie Jace Amaro, finishing with a 23-247-3 receiving line. A former college wide receiver, Cumberland has been billed as a plus athlete, but does not play like it on the field and is also a liability as a blocker. The Jets signed Cumberland to a new three-year, $5.7 million contract last March, so he'll likely be back with the club in 2015. He has zero Dynasty value. The team will hope for a 2015 step forward from tight end of the future Amaro. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Gates didn't get his first target until the third quarter, but still managed to have a decent game. His season ends with a 69/821/12 line. Gates finished as a top-three fantasy tight end this season, with his 12 touchdowns the most he's had since 2004. Gates will return for the final year of his contract at a $5.9 million salary. He has some decline concerns entering his age-35 season, but remains a TE1 option for 2015 re-draft leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Jace Amaro goes 3-34 against Dolphins
      Jace Amaro caught 3-of-4 targets for 34 yards in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

      Advice: The 49th overall pick in last May's draft, Amaro completed his nondescript rookie year with 38 catches for 345 yards and two touchdowns. Amaro didn't show much field-stretching ability, but is a quality possession-receiver prospect and a likely building block for the Jets' organization. The club will hope for a 2015 step forward from Amaro as its tight end of the future, although Amaro's statistical outlook is tough to gauge with so much uncertainty in New York's front office and at quarterback. We suspect he'll improve to the point where Amaro will become a fantasy TE2 option as a sophomore. Rotoworld.com

Despite losing snaps to in-line TE Anthony Fasano, Kelce was second on the team behind only Dwayne Bowe with 81 targets. Kelce will return as a top-ten fantasy tight end in 2015. Rotoworld.com

He saw increased reps late in the year with Graham battling an ankle injury. We like Griffin's skill set as a pass catcher but he's not much of a blocker. He caught just 10 passes for 91 yards and one touchdown on the season. He'll compete for a spot next summer. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Cameron got loose down the middle for a 30-yard gain in the first half, but was held in check the rest of the game. It was a quiet finish to a disappointing season for Cameron. Dealing with a concussion and shoulder injury throughout the season, the contract-year tight end managed just 24 catches for 424 yards and two scores across 10 games in 2014. Turning 27 just before the 2015 season begins, Cameron is young enough and talented enough from someone to take a chance despite his long concussion history, but he will likely have to settle for a short-term, prove-it deal.

      Advice: The 65th overall pick in May's draft, Fiedorowicz's season can be chalked up as a disappointment, though tight ends take longer to develop than other positions. He played about 500 snaps, but caught just four passes for 28 yards and one touchdown. Fiedorowicz drew some loose Rob Gronkowski comparisons coming out of Iowa and into coach Bill O'Brien's offense, but he'll have to show a lot more. Fiedorowicz is still a guy to monitor in deeper Dynasty leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyle Rudolph held catch-less in Week 17
      Kyle Rudolph was held catch-less in the Vikings' Week 17 win over the Bears.

      Advice: We noticed Rudolph on an impressive block to spring Matt Asiata for a first-half run, but otherwise he was quiet coming off multiple injuries. Dating back to Notre Dame, Rudolph has been incredibly injury prone, and he missed seven more games this year, finishing with a disappointing 24-231-2 receiving line. Still only 25 years old, Rudolph is locked up long term in Minnesota after GM Rick Spielman handed him a new six-year, $37.5 million deal this past summer. Although Rudolph plays under typically tight end-friendly OC Norv Turner and in a promising passing attack, his Dynasty outlook is suspect. Rudolph is a quality red-zone target, but isn't quick enough to consistently defeat linebackers or safeties in coverage. He'll be better viewed as a TE2 in 2015 re-draft leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Delanie Walker nets seven catches in loss
      Delanie Walker caught seven passes for 43 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Colts.

      Advice: Arguably the Titans' most dependable pass-catcher this season, Walker set career-highs in catches (63), yards (890) and targets (108). It certainly didn't hurt that Checkdown Charlie Whitehurst played the final seven games, a span during which Walker averaged 7.0 targets per game. Under contract for a reasonable $4.275M in 2015, he'll return as a mere low-upside TE2 option. The Titans' offensive woes aren't going away anytime soon, even if/when they add Jameis Winston.

      Marcedes Lewis couldn't reel in any of his three targets in the Jaguars' Week 17 loss to the Texans.

      Advice: Lewis posted an 18-206-2 line on the season. Lewis started all eight games he appeared in, but missed the other eight games on I.R./recall with a significant ankle sprain. He’s no longer a threat as a receiver and battled drops all season. Lewis is mainly kept around as a blocker and steadying veteran presence on a young team. He has one year left on his contract with an $8.4 million cap number. On any other team, Lewis would be an easy cut. But Jacksonville is flush with cap space. Lewis’ roster standing will depend on what GM Dave Caldwell decides to do in free agency. He’s not a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com

      Jimmy Graham caught 6-of-9 targets for 54 yards in New Orleans' Week 17 win over the Bucs.

      Advice: The day was a microcosm of Graham's massively disappointing season, as he appeared to tweak his troublesome right shoulder, and failed to fight for what could have been 1-2 more catches in traffic. Graham admitted to the broadcast crew during the week that he simply hasn't been the same since getting injured in Week 5, and both his stats and on-the-field play support that. Now 28, there's a strong chance Graham will undergo offseason surgery. He closes the book on 2014 with 85 catches for 889 yards and 10 scores. The yards are his fewest since his rookie year in 2010. It's a tough pill to swallow for fantasy owners who made Graham a first-round pick, but he'll be an exceedingly obvious bounce-back candidate in 2015. Rotoworld.com

With Victor Cruz returning to full health behind Odell Beckham in 2015, Donnell should be no higher than No. 3 in line for targets. He'll have to make his hay in the red zone. Rotoworld.com

    • Dion Sims goes 3-35-1 against Vikings
      Dion Sims secured 3-of-3 targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 16 win over the Vikings.

      Advice: Sims is playing behind Charles Clay again, but "vultured" Clay with a 14-yard touchdown in the second quarter. A very useful second tight end, Sims has earned an every-week role in the Dolphins' offense, even if he plays limited snaps. He also is a proficient run blocker, and better there than Clay.

    • Travis Kelce catches four passes for 31 yards
      Travis Kelce caught 4-of-7 targets for 31 yards in the Chiefs' Week 16 loss to the Steelers.

      Advice: It was a disappointing day for Kelce, who also committed a personal foul. Kelce has proven to be a true weapon in his first healthy NFL season, but coach Andy Reid only occasionally decides to feature him in the passing game. Nevertheless, he's a dynamite option in dynasty leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Jimmy Graham comes on strong late in game
      Jimmy Graham caught 6-of-10 targets for 53 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the Falcons.

      Advice: Graham started slowly, failing to corral his first four targets and committing a bad drop on third down. He came on in the second half, catching a short touchdown pass in the fourth quarter and "fumbling" at the "one-yard line" on what should have been another score. Graham does not appear to be 100 percent, but he has double-digit targets in three of his last four games. Graham will close out the season against the Bucs next week. Rotoworld.com

    • Gronkowski goes 6/31/1 versus Jets
      Rob Gronkowski caught 6-of-10 targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Jets.

      Advice: Gronk is now up to 82/1,124/12 on the season. With one game to go, all three totals are the second best of his five-year career. It's a remarkable achievement for a player who tore his ACL last December. Rotoworld.com

    • Cameron goes 3-88-1 against Panthers
      Jordan Cameron secured 3-of-5 targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Browns' Week 16 loss to the Panthers.

      Advice: Cameron was silent until the fourth quarter, when Brian Hoyer hit him for a dramatic 81-yard touchdown to give Cleveland the lead. It ultimately wasn't enough as the Panthers came back to win on a Cam Newton nine-yard touchdown pass to Jonathan Stewart. It's been a lost fantasy year for Cameron, but his ability to produce was never in question. He'll look to finish strong in a Week 17 date with Baltimore. Rotoworld.com

    • Antonio Gates hauls in two scores Saturday
      Antonio Gates caught 7-of-9 targets for 92 yards and two touchdowns Week 16 against the 49ers.

      Advice: Gates leaked out on a play action boot for a one-yard score in the third quarter and was inexplicably left wide open for a 21-yard score in the fourth. Gates is now one touchdown away from 100 total scores for his career, and he would match his highest single-season total with 13 if he can score next week against Kansas City. Gates will be a TE1 in that matchup. Rotoworld.com

      Jordan Reed caught two-of-four targets for five yards in Saturday's Week 16 win over the Eagles.

      Advice: Reed is averaging just three catches over the last three games. He can't be trusted as more than a TE2 option despite a favorable Week 17 matchup with Dallas. Rotoworld.com

      Zach Ertz secured 15-of-18 targets for 115 yards in Saturday's Week 16 loss to Washington.

      Advice: The 15 catches are a franchise record, while the 18 targets were by far his most of the season. Unfortunately, Ertz only had one red-zone look. It's an overdue breakout from Ertz, who had been playing limited snaps behind Brent Celek. Ertz will be back on the TE1 radar in Week 17 against a Giants defense that struggles with tight ends.

      Marcedes Lewis caught 2-of-3 targets for six yards and a touchdown in the Jags' Week 16 win over the Titans.

      Advice: Lewis' score came on a well-executed fade in the second quarter. It was his first touchdown since Week 2. Going on 31, Lewis is signed for a hefty $6.65 million next season. Rotoworld.com

    • Delanie Walker has four-catch night vs. Jags
      Delanie Walker caught 4-of-6 targets for 54 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

      Advice: Walker's knee was not an issue. Walker cost himself a fifth grab by failing to get both feet in bounds when it appeared he should have been able to. That's easy for us to say, of course. Producing like a mid-range TE1, that's what Walker will remain for Week 17 against the Colts. Walker could be an interesting play in DFS leagues if the Colts send out their B Team. Rotoworld.com

      Delanie Walker (knee) is active for Week 16 against the Jaguars.

    • Kyle Rudolph misses another practice Thursday
      Kyle Rudolph (ankle, knee) remained sidelined Thursday.

      Advice: Rudolph is beginning to look shaky for Sunday's trip to Miami. Rudolph is coming off his first effective game of 2014, but will be difficult to trust as a TE2 at far less than 100 percent health. Rudolph has admitted his groin remains an issue in addition to his knee and ankle ailments. Chase Ford will start at tight end if Rudolph sits in South Beach. Rotoworld.com

    • Travis Kelce's snap count on the rise
      Travis Kelce has played on 80.4 percent of the snaps the last two weeks.

      Advice: Kelce's usage has quietly spiked recently even though Anthony Fasano has been healthy. Kelce ran a season-high 46 routes in Week 14 and backed that up by running 30 in Week 15 -- his third-highest mark of the season. Over the last month, Kelce is fantasy's No. 4 tight end and faces a Steelers defense burnable in every facet this week. He's clearly in play as a TE1 for both season-long and daily players.

    • Jimmy Graham in on 65.2% of snaps Week 15
      Jimmy Graham played on 65.2 percent of the snaps against the Bears in Week 15.

      Advice: It's down from the 77.4 percent he played in Week 14. It was also extremely frustrating to see Graham not even on the field when No. 3 TE Josh Hill was the primary read on two goal-line plays and converted both for scores. Still, Graham has run 78 pass routes the last two weeks and put 5-87-0 on the Bears despite his shoulder issue. Season-longers have to fire him up as the No. 2 tight end play in Week 16 against the Falcons. Rotoworld.com
