    • Bucs and TE Brandon Myers restructure deal
      Bucs restructured the contract of TE Brandon Myers.

      Advice: The details are not yet available, but the restructuring will lower Myers $2.25 million base salary in 2015 while adding another year to the contract. This deal will likely keep Myers in Tampa Bay for at least one more season. Rotoworld.com

    • Gronkowski to see 'little-to-no playing time'
      The Boston Globe's Ben Volin believes Rob Gronkowski will receive "little-to-no playing time" in the Patriots' season finale against the Bills.

      Advice: With nothing on the line Week 17, it makes little sense for the Patriots to play their dynamic but oft-injured tight end. Gronkowski could very well put up a goose egg Week 17, making him unplayable in both seasonal and daily formats. Tim Wright will likely see a bump in snaps with Gronk limited, but would be a poor option against the Bills' suffocating pass defense. Rotoworld.com

    • Jimmy Graham will undergo MRI on shoulder
      Jimmy Graham (shoulder) will undergo an MRI next week.

      Advice: Graham has been playing through his shoulder injury since Week 5, but it's been an issue for him all year. It's possible he could require an offseason procedure. Graham has averaged 41 yards per game with only one touchdown over the last month. Rotoworld.com

    • Tony Moeaki to be game-time decision
      Tony Moeaki (questionable, shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Week 17 against the Rams.

      Advice: Moeaki will likely return as the No. 2 tight end behind Luke Willson. Cooper Helfet (ribs) is also listed as questionable. Rotoworld.com

      John Carlson (calf) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

      Advice: Carlson practiced in full the last two days, putting him on track to play. He was targeted three times by Ryan Lindley last week. Carlson will continue to be part of a committee with Darren Fells and Rob Housler. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyle Rudolph listed as questionable
      Kyle Rudolph (ankle/knee) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

      Advice: Rudolph did very little on the practice field this week. Even if he plays against the Bears, Rudolph would figure to be "limited" in the game. Rotoworld.com

      Dwayne Allen (knee) has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Titans.

      Advice: Coby Fleener and Jack Doyle will handle tight-end duties. Allen should be back in time for the start of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

    • Tyler Efiert undergoes shoulder surgery
      Tyler Eifert recently underwent shoulder surgery.

      Advice: He's done for the season. Eifert hasn't played since dislocating his elbow in Week 1. He initially hurt the shoulder in training camp. Eifert is simply getting cleaned up in an effort to be fully healthy for the offseason. Jermaine Gresham will continue to handle tight-end duties through the playoffs for the Bengals. Rotoworld.com

    • Giants expect Donnell to make 2015 leap
      The Giants expect Larry Donnell to take another big leap forward in 2015.

      Advice: Per ESPN's Dan Graziano, the Giants believe in Donnell as a long-term starting tight end. They think he'll "develop into a dynamic player who is a huge part of Ben McAdoo's offense." Donnell got off to a torrid start to the season, scoring six touchdowns the first 11 weeks. But the past five games, Donnell has averaged just three catches for 32 yards per game with zero scores. 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

    • Gresham leads Bengals with 9-62-1 on MNF
      Jermaine Gresham caught nine passes for 62 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' Week 16 win over the Broncos.

      Advice: With A.J. Green hurting his arm on the fourth offensive play and missing much of the night, Gresham saw a team-high 11 targets and led the Bengals in receiving. His touchdown couldn't have been any easier. Andy Dalton rolled out on play-action and found a wide-open Gresham in the back of the end zone. Gresham has played surprisingly well this season. The Bengals get the Steelers in Week 17. Rotoworld.com

    • Luke Willson breaks out for 138 yards, 2 TDs
      Luke Willson secured all three of his targets for 139 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Cardinals.

      Advice: Willson was left wide open for a 80-yard touchdown on a blown coverage by Cardinals S Rashad Johnson in the first quarter. He was on the receiving end of both of Russell Wilson's touchdowns, with his second coming on a 20-yard seam route. It's a nice breakout game for Willson, who should continue to see the majority of snaps when Tony Moeaki returns. Seattle plays the Rams in Week 17. Rotoworld.com

      Lance Kendricks caught two passes for 35 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Giants.

      Advice: Kendricks exploited the seam nicely for a 23-yard score in the third quarter. The Rams No. 2 tight end takes a 26-230-5 line into the finale at Seattle. Rotoworld.com

    • Coby Fleener racks up seven targets Week 16
      Coby Fleener caught 4-of-7 targets for 36 yards Week 16 against the Cowboys.

      Advice: Fleener made a nice 17-yard sideline grab early in the game but was limited by the Colts' floundering offense. The return of Dwayne Allen has not seriously eaten into Fleener's targets. He is a good bet for 7-10 targets Week 17 against the Titans. Rotoworld.com

    • Jason Witten grabs touchdown against Colts
      Jason Witten caught all seven of his targets for 90 yards and a score Week 16 against the Colts.

      Advice: The Colts had no answer for the Cowboys passing game in this one, and Witten as able to basically whatever he wanted all game. His touchdown catch was a beautifully thrown pass up the seam in the third quarter. Witten now has 16 targets over the last two games. Rotoworld.com

    • Charles Clay goes 6-114 against Vikings
      Charles Clay secured 6-of-10 targets for 114 yards in the Dolphins' Week 16 win over the Vikings.

      Advice: The Vikings have been stout versus tight ends all season, but Clay went to work on short and intermediate patterns, racking up three receptions for 40 yards in the first half. He was "vultured" in the red zone on a 14-yard touchdown pass to No. 2 tight end Dion Sims in the second quarter. Clay sparked Miami's offense on a third-quarter gain of 41 yards. We have very little beef with what first-year OC Bill Lazor has done with Miami's 2014 offense, but underutilizing Clay could be one quibble. The Dolphins will close out their season in Week 17 against the Jets. Rotoworld.com

      Heath Miller caught 7-of-8 targets for 68 yards in the Steelers' Week 16 win over the Chiefs.

      Advice: The seven-catch effort was Miller's fourth of the season. Miller has been up and down this year, but enters Week 17 the owner of a Miller-esque 63/720/3 receiving line. Now 32, Miller is signed through 2016. Rotoworld.com

    • Martellus Bennett held to one catch
      Martellus Bennett caught one pass for zero yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Lions.

      Advice: Bennett was targeted just three times while Alshon Jeffery and Marquess Wilson combined for 25. That may have been part of the gameplan as a Bears offensive line without Kyle Long tried to protect Jimmy Clausen. In the previous four games, Bennett averaged 9.7 targets per day. The Bears wrap the season against the Vikings next week. 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
