  • Browns will not force the ball to Cameron
    Browns coach Mike Pettine said the team will not force the ball to Jordan Cameron.

    Advice: "If he’s open in the read and the ball gets thrown to him, he needs to catch it," Pettine said, "but we’re not going to force a ball to somebody." Cameron has seen 5.2 targets a game this year after seeing the ball come his way 7.9 times a contest last season. He has also been far less efficient, catching just 38% of his targets on the season. Cameron has the talent to turn it around, but he will need more consistent targets and more consistent quarterback play to regain top-five tight end status. Rotoworld.com

    The Ravens will start rookie Crockett Gillmore at tight end until Owen Daniels (knee scope) returns.

    Advice: Daniels probably won't return for 2-4 weeks. Gillmore runs 4.89, but stands 6-foot-6, 260 and had impressive jumps of 10-foot in the broad and 33 1/2" in the vertical at February's Combine. As tight end is a huge part of OC Gary Kubiak's offense, Gillmore is worth a look for desperate TE1 streamers. He's big with long arms, reasonable athleticism, and should be a red-zone weapon.

    Advice: The Ravens are only saying Daniels will be out "at least one game," but he's much likelier to miss more. It's another big blow to OC Gary Kubiak's offense, which already lost Dennis Pitta for the season. Mostly a blocker to this point in Kubiak's offense, third-round rookie Crockett Gillmore will now take over as the Ravens' starting tight end, perhaps with FB Kyle Juszczyk and/or WR Marlon Brown taking on bigger roles in the passing game.

    The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner guesses Tyler Eifert (elbow) will return from the injured reserve/designated for return list in Week 11 against the Saints.

    Advice: Eifert is worth rostering for forward-thinking fantasy owners in need of tight end help. He was a big part of OC Hue Jackson's game plan in Week 1, before dislocating the elbow, racking up three early catches for 37 yards. Jermaine Gresham has done nothing to instill confidence as a pass catcher during Eifert's absence, while A.J. Green (toe) is now hobbled and Marvin Jones (foot) is on I.R. Eifert could flirt with TE1 stats down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

The TDs weren't Gates' only accomplishment this evening, as the yards gave him 9,610 for his career, moving him past Lance Alworth (9,584) as the Bolts' all-time leader.

Owners need to stop banging their heads against a brick wall and expecting Andy Reid to unleash Kelce fully -- it's clear that's not in the immediate plans, especially after an excellent road win.

Kelce ripped off back-to-back gains of 16 and eight yards on the Chiefs' game-winning drive, but was bafflingly limited to just two targets beforehand. It was confounding usage from coach Andy Reid, who watched Junior Hemingway and Dwayne Bowe commit brutal drops, and A.J. Jenkins display stunningly-little awareness. Kelce is the Chiefs' most-effective pass catcher not named Jamaal Charles, but until Reid starts utilizing him as such, he'll remain a boom-or-bust TE1. Rotoworld.com

  • Antonio Gates goes 3/61/1 versus Chiefs
    Antonio Gates caught 3-of-4 targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in San Diego's Week 7 loss to the Chiefs.

    Advice: Another effective day at the office for the future Hall-of-Famer, but his 27-yard score was a fluke catch that bounced off a defensive back's hands. Either way, it was Gates' seventh touchdown of the season, and fourth in three games. Gates hasn't managed more than four catches since Week 2, but is locked in as a mid-range TE1. Rotoworld.com

  • Owen Daniels goes 6-58-1 against Falcons
    Owen Daniels secured 6-of-9 targets for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 7 win over the Falcons.

    Advice: Atlanta entered the week having surrendered the fewest fantasy points in the league to tight ends. Daniels got on the Falcons quick, however, tallying a five-yard TD in the first quarter and getting all of his production in the first half. In the old Dennis Pitta role, Daniels offers minimal week-to-week upside but is very much involved under tight end-friendly OC Gary Kubiak. He'll be a borderline TE1 when the Ravens play the Bengals next. Cincinnati hemorrhages catches and fantasy points to tight ends. Rotoworld.com

    Martellus Bennett caught five passes for 58 yards in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

    Advice: Bennett was targeted eight times on the afternoon in a typical day at the office. After his torrid start, Bennett hasn't scored in the past four games. He'll be a low-end TE1 option next week on the road against the Patriots. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Cameron held to 1 catch, 5 yards
    Jordan Cameron secured just 1-of-6 targets for five yards in the Browns' Week 7 loss to Jacksonville.

    Advice: On an awful day by Brian Hoyer, Cleveland's biggest gaffe was an early-game miss by Hoyer to a wide-open Cameron for a would-be four-yard touchdown. Cameron didn't record his lone reception until fourth-quarter garbage time. Cameron should theoretically be a lot more consistent as a featured player in the Browns' passing attack, but obviously hasn't been to this point. Look for Cameron to get back on track against the Raiders' weak defense in Week 8, but he will be more low-end TE1 than top-shelf starter. Rotoworld.com

    Charles Clay caught four passes for 58 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Bears.

    Advice: It was easily Clay's best game of the season. He was targeted five times and scored his first touchdown of the year, beating SLB Shea McClellin, who fell down in coverage, for the 13-yard score in the first quarter. Clay has a decent matchup with the Jaguars next week, but he's still more of a middling TE2. Rotoworld.com

Thankfully, Graham did not appear to suffer any setbacks during the game. His status will be updated when the Saints resume practicing on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwayne Allen tip-toes to another TD
    Dwayne Allen caught three passes for 52 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bengals.

    Advice: Allen's touchdown came on an out route in which he made a spectacular fingertip catch on a fastball and then turned on the speed while tip-toeing up the sideline for 32 yards. It was an impressive display of his unique natural ability. Allen now has a touchdown in 5-of-7 games, but is averaging just 43.5 yards per day. He'll be a low-end TE1 against the Steelers in Week 8.

He was his usual self, catching short passes and then quickly falling down. Even if Ebron and Fauria are out next week, Pettigrew will be nothing but a very low-ceiling TE2 against the Falcons.

    FOX's Jay Glazer said the plan is for Jimmy Graham (shoulder) to play roughly 30 snaps in Sunday's game at Detroit.

    Advice: Graham was averaging 60.7 snaps through the first four weeks of this season. The play count is a rough estimate and could fluctuate based on how he's feeling and situations. As previously reported, Graham's main packages will be in the red zone and on clear passing downs. Note that he needed to take an injection Sunday morning to get through the pain in his shoulder.

That said, Graham has performed very well on limited snaps in the past, scoring two touchdowns in only 20 snaps against the Bills last season. He is a top-7 tight end option this week. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: It obviously didn't go down, as Harvin was shipped to the Jets on Friday. Cameron is in the final year of his deal, and the Seahawks were eyeing tight end help with Zach Miller still hurt. Farmer wasn't interested in the deal. It's more interesting than anything else. Rapoport also learned that the Seahawks called the Broncos, Bucs, and Colts about Harvin, while ESPN's Adam Schefter adds the Seahawks asked for Julius Thomas from Denver.

  • Report: Jimmy Graham to play, not start Sun.
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jimmy Graham (shoulder, questionable) plans to play, but won't start Week 7 against the Lions.

    Advice: In other words, the Saints will use Graham in red-zone packages. He'll test the shoulder in pre-game warmups before making a final decision. Owners can pray for a touchdown, but he's unlikely to see much, if any, action between the 20s. But this is Jimmy Graham. If he suits up, he needs to be in lineups. The Lions are allowing the 16th-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Rotoworld.com

With Fauria out with an ankle injury and Ebron doubtful with a hamstring, the Lions may have no choice but to get Pettigrew more involved. Even so, he is nothing more than a low-ceiling TE2.

  • Graham to be a red-zone player if active?
    The New Orleans Times-Picayune suggests Jimmy Graham (shoulder, questionable) could be a situational red-zone player if active Sunday.

    Advice: We've seen the Saints do this with Graham before, as recently as last season when he often played limited snaps while battling foot and elbow injuries. He was still dominant, closing the season with six touchdowns in the last six games despite playing on just 69.2 percent of the snaps during that span. The bottom line is that if Graham suits up Sunday, he has to be in lineups regardless of role. "It's an injury. It's just like all the other ones I've ever had," he said, reiterating his status as a true game-time call. "It's painful, but we'll see. Maybe in two days I'll feel better." Rotoworld.com
