  Jaguars | Niles Paul goes to IR    Tue Oct 16, 06:23 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Niles Paul (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars are quite banged up at the tight end position. Paul and Austin Seferian-Jenkins are now both on Injured Reserve. That's why they signed Blake Bell on Tuesday. The Jaguars have James O'Shaughnessy as their top tight end backed up by David Grinnage and Bell.

Footballguys view: Engram was close to playing last week, so we're not surprised he's back on the practice field early this week. The Giants play against the Falcons on Monday night and Engram could be back to his TE1 status for Fantasy GMs...provided he practices all week and is cleared to play.

  Panthers | Greg Olsen expected to start Week 6    Sat Oct 13, 05:34 PM

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) is expected to play in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins, and the plan is for him to be in the starting lineup, a source said Saturday, Oct. 13.

Footballguys view: Olsen's foot injury is going to require surgery after the season but he's back now and ready as he'll ever be this season. The tight end position is brutal this year for Fantasy GMs, but a clearly less-than-100-percent Olsen is a TE2 in Week 6.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (knee) was listed as a limited participant for the third straight day Saturday, Oct. 13, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers on Monday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: Kittle is not 100 percent but reporters around the team feel that he's going to play on Monday night against the Packers. Even though he's not full strength, Kittle is still a low-end TE1 for Fantasy GMs if he plays.
