  Patriots | Rob Gronkowski posts TD in win    Sun Sep 21, 09:41 PM

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) was able to play in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders. He posted three receptions for 44 yards and the only touchdown of the game. Gronkowski was also targeted six times.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski and the whole Patriots pass offense is underperforming. He dropped a second touchdown, but as long as he is featured in the red zone, he'll still be worth that spot in your lineup. Next week takes Gronk and the Patriots to Arrowhead for Monday Night Football.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates held to one grab    Sun Sep 21, 09:39 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) was able to play in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills, but he was limited to just one reception for eight yards.

Footballguys view: The fantasy gods and Chargers offense are having fun with us. Just when it seemed like Gates was getting back to his elite production, he is a minimal part of the offense and third-year TE Ladarius Green plays a larger role.

  Browns | Just one grab for Jordan Cameron    Sun Sep 21, 08:28 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) was able to play in the Week 3 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He was limited to just one target, and that was good for a 23-yard reception.

Footballguys view: Cameron has not resumed being the #1 target in the offense. The running game is doing the heavy lifting, and Andrew Hawkins seems to have something good going with QB Brian Hoyer. The good news is that the Browns will have a bye next week, so Cameron's shoulder should be as healthy as it has been all year coming into Week 5.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (groin) will have an MRI on his right groin Monday, Sept. 22. 'Something popped. I've been battling it for a while,' Rudolph said after the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: We doubt we'll see Rudolph next week against Atlanta, and he could be out for longer.

  Vikings | Kyle Rudolph leaves with injury    Sun Sep 21, 03:44 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (groin) suffered a groin injury in the team's Week 3 game and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Rudolph looked slowed down last week, and this doesn't help matters. He could miss the matchup against the Falcons next week. He will have an MRI tomorrow and said it "popped" after bothering him for a while.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) has been declared inactive for Week 3.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta suffers injury    Sun Sep 21, 02:05 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) was carted off after suffering a right hip injury during the team's Week 3 game.

Footballguys view: It looked bad, as it was a non-contact injury, and Pitta was carted off. Owen Daniels becomes the #1 tight end in a good offense for the position.

  49ers | Vernon Davis unlikely to go    Sun Sep 21, 10:21 AM

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle) is doubtful to play Sunday, Sept. 21, and was on crutches until Thursday, Sept. 18. TE Derek Carrier would start in his place.

Footballguys view: Carrier has 4.5 speed and he didn't look lost out on the football field last week. He's about as good of a play as say, Jared Cook, if Davis can't go.

  Browns | Jordan Cameron expected to go    Sun Sep 21, 10:08 AM

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is expected to play Sunday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: Cameron is a good play over all but about 6-7 tight ends. Even with risk of reinjury or ineffectiveness, Cameron has a very high ceiling as the rare tight end that is his teams #1 option in the passing game.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates probable    Sat Sep 20, 06:17 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is probable for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Gates has found the fountain of youth over the last few weeks and has become a low-end TE1. We expect him to have another solid performance Sunday.

  49ers | One Niner promoted, one cut    Sat Sep 20, 05:02 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE Asante Cleveland was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Sept. 20. QB Josh X. Johnson was released.

Footballguys view: Johnson has had several stops in the NFL, and he's just not going to make it. With the 49ers, he was reunited with former college coach (with the San Diego Torreros) Jim Harbaugh. If Harbaugh is giving up on him, then Johnson's fantasy stock in super deep dynasty leagues is done.

  49ers | Vernon Davis' status uncertain    Sat Sep 20, 10:59 AM

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) could be a game-time decision for Week 3. Davis said he was encouraged with how he felt after some light running and catching drills Friday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: This is a 4pm game, so you may have to make your choice early. Otherwise make sure you have an alternative from other late games, Sunday or Monday night. Davis has a good matchup and if he plays it's worth the risk of another injury to have him in if you don't mind rolling the dice.

  Dolphins | Charles Clay limited in practice    Fri Sep 19, 08:33 PM

  49ers | Vernon Davis listed as questionable    Fri Sep 19, 07:50 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) did not practice Friday, Sept. 19, and he is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: One 49ers beat writer said Davis' limp became more pronounced when he noticed he was being watched, but we should still proceed as if he won't play, or be limited in effectiveness if he does. Still, the Cardinals are a great matchup for tight ends, so if you don't have another reasonable option, it could be worth rolling the dice at a position where production is usually limited.

Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (shoulder) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 19, and is questionable for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Cameron is a true game-time decision, but if you don't have a top 3 option, an active Cameron is probably the best bet in your lineup this week. Have another option readied on your roster just in case.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed ruled out    Fri Sep 19, 12:30 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out of Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: Reed might not be back next week, and every week he misses allows Niles Paul to entrench himself in the Washington offense. Paul is a TE1 this week, and it is possible that he forces a timeshare that leaves neither as a TE1 right now. If you were counting on Reed to be your TE1 this year, you need to make other plans.

  Dolphins | Charles Clay not picking up yards    Thu Sep 18, 11:31 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Charles Clay has only averaged 6.4 yards per reception this season, which is the lowest average among starting tight ends.

Footballguys view: Clay has been plagued by a minor knee injury and dropped passes. For those thinking they may have something with Clay, it's past time to move on to another tight end.
