    Advice: Coach Mike Mularkey said Friday Walker will be put through a pre-game workout to determine whether he's fit to play. The fact that Walker practiced on back-to-back days bodes well, but he was limited in both workouts and the Titans are not committing to playing him. "He's improving," Mularkey insisted.

Rookie Hunter Henry will make another start in what looks to be another plus matchup.Daily Slant: With Gates looking like he'll miss another week, Hunter Henry (who is minimum priced on most DFS outlets) will step into the lead role against a defense that ranked dead last against the TE position last season. Henry was the 35th pick in this year's draft and after catching each of his five targets last weekend, he could very well be in for another 2-3 looks against a vulnerable Saints defense. New Orleans allowed more FPPG to TEs last year than the leader at the position (Rob Gronkowski) averaged on the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:50 pm

    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.

    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.

    Dwayne Allen caught 3-of-5 targets for 35 yards in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Chargers.

    Advice: Allen looked poised for a strong day, catching an early pass on the opening drive, but he later dropped a six-yard touchdown in the first quarter and was barely heard from again, getting out-produced by Jack Doyle (6-65 on six targets). 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.

Coming off a ruptured patellar tendon, Graham looked fully back to form by skying to make contested catches in the open field and appearing in excellent shape physically.

    Advice: After flexing his muscles with 135 yards over his first two contests, Thomas was rarely seen or heard from. 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. Thomas is still a big red zone presence and will have some decent weeks, but fantasy owners need to be prepared for a few duds along the way. This was one of them.

    Eric Ebron caught 5-of-8 targets for 69 yards Week 3 against the Packers.

    Advice: Shockingly, the five catches matched Ebron's career-high, and he likely would have had more if not hobbled by an apparent ankle injury in the second half. Ebron played through the injury, but he had to come off the field after a catch in the third quarter and did not appear to be 100 percent. Ebron looked great before the issue, but his biggest play of the game was one he would like to forget. With the Lions driving, Ebron had the ball ripped out of his hands on what should have been a catch. Despite that mistake, Ebron will be a must-play option if healthy next week against the Bears.

Trey Burton drew the start and tallied 49 yards on five catches with Ertz sidelined against the Bears in Week 2. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:29 am

  • Stephen Anderson could be used in slot
    Texans rookie TE Stephen Anderson could be used in the slot with Braxton Miller (hamstring) sidelined.

    Advice: "Yeah, definitely at Cal I was doing that most of the time," Anderson said. "So, that would put me right back in my comfort zone sliding to the outside." Miller had just six targets in two games, so it is not like Anderson is stepping into a high-volume role. He could see five or six targets each week with Miller out, however. Anderson is a name to watch in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:23 am

  • Tyler Eifert practicing again Thursday
    Tyler Eifert (ankle) is practicing again Thursday.

    Advice: He remained "limited," but it is a great sign he was able to practice two days in a row. It is still unlikely he is active this week, but Week 4 looks like a real possibility. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:44 am

  • Zach Ertz (ribs) still 'in a lot of pain'
    Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ribs) said he is still "in a lot of pain."

    Advice: "There’s a lot of stuff behind that rib," Ertz said when asked about the risk of playing through the injury. "If it was a lower rib where the pain is now, I’d easily be able to play last week." Coach Doug Pederson has said Ertz will be a game-time call, but he missed practice again Thursday and it seems unlikely he suits up this week. Trey Burton should once again play a big role.

  • Gronk telling teammates he will play Thursday
    The Boston Globe's Ben Volin reports Rob Gronkowski (hamstring, questionable) "has been telling teammates all week" he will play Thursday night.

    Advice: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported early Thursday there was a "real chance" Gronk plays. At this point, it would be a surprise if he did not suit up. Even with Jacoby Brissett running the show, Gronk will be a must-start against the Texans. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:40 am

    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports there is a "real chance" Rob Gronkowski (hamstring, questionable) plays Thursday night.

    Advice: Rapoport cautioned he is still a game-time call, but the buzz around Gronk has been much more positive this week. He will likely suit up. Even with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback, Gronk is a must-start when active. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:40 am

  • A. Gates considered 'uncertain' for Week 3
    The San Diego Union-Tribune considers Antonio Gates' (hamstring) status "uncertain" for Week 3 at Indianapolis.

    Advice: The Chargers signed TE Austin Traylor to their practice squad on Tuesday, possibly hinting Gates' absence from Wednesday's practice was more than a day of veteran rest. Beat writer Michael Gehlken suggests fellow practice squad TE Asante Cleveland could be promoted to the 53-man roster before Sunday, "perhaps with Gates inactive." It sounds like Gates' fantasy owners need to have a fallback plan in place. Jacob Tamme (@ NO), Jesse James (@ PHI), Jared Cook (vs. DET), and Jack Doyle (vs. SD) are all viable Week 3 streamers.

  • Jimmy Graham (knee) limited Wednesday
    Jimmy Graham (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Seattle is managing his reps after he played on 82 percent of snaps last week. Graham is a low-end TE1 for Sunday's 49ers matchup. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:39 pm

  • Gronk (hamstring) questionable for Week 3
    Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) is questionable for Week 3 against the Texans.

    Advice: Gronkowski has been limited at practice for the last three weeks, though beat writers seem to think he has a better chance of suiting up this week. He'll be a no-doubt TE1 if he gets the green light, even with rookie Jacoby Brissett under center. Martellus Bennett would draw the start if Gronk is held out. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:23 pm

  • Antonio Gates (hamstring) misses practice
    Antonio Gates (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday.

    Advice: It's not clear when the injury happened, as Gates played into the fourth quarter in last week's blowout win. The Chargers added a tight end to their practice squad, suggesting there's some concern over his status. Hunter Henry would be a Week 3 streaming option if Gates is held out.

    Eric Ebron (back) didn't practice Wednesday.

    Advice: The missed practice isn't a good sign, but Ebron played 71-of-74 snaps last week. It's possible the Lions are getting him some rest. Ebron is a TE1 for Sunday's matchup with the Packers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:49 pm

    Zach Ertz (ribs) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Coach Doug Pederson has already said Ertz will be a game-time call this week. If he can't go, Trey Burton will again be the Eagles' pass-catching tight end after posting a 5-49-1 line on seven targets Monday night. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:34 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

  • Jimmy Graham says he feels 'like a beast'
    Jimmy Graham said he felt "like a beast" after the Week 2 loss to the Rams.

    Advice: "I feel the same," Graham said. "So I'll play more and more and get more and more opportunities. I just want to be there for my guys and be there for my team." Clearly nearing full health, Graham played 82 percent of the offensive snaps (55-of-57) Week 2 after playing just 21 percent in the season opener. With the 49ers next up on the schedule, Graham is worth a start this week. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:13 am
