  49ers | Vernon Davis ready to rebound?    Sat May 23, 10:45 PM

San Fancisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis caught a pair of red-zone touchdowns from QB Colin Kaepernick during practice Thursday, May 21, and he added a 25-yard reception on a deep crossing route.

  Vikings | MyCole Pruitt could have sizeable role    Fri May 22, 10:04 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE MyCole Pruitt was praised for his versatility and ability to create mismatches by general manager Rick Spielman, and Pruitt could be the No. 2 tight end on the depth chart behind TE Kyle Rudolph as a rookie.

Footballguys view: We're not as crazy about the Southern Illinois prospect as some. In 2014, Pruitt led all FBS tight ends in catches, yards and touchdowns. The Vikings added him in the fifth round of the draft this year with the idea of further developing his game. Pruitt has good hands, but he's limited athletically and not the dangerous move tight end some have projected him to be. He's stiff in the hips and has average play speed. Some in the scouting community have compared him to Daniel Fells, and unless he improves his movement drastically Pruitt is unlikely to be much of a fantasy factor.

  Chiefs | Ryan Taylor signed    Fri May 22, 02:30 AM

The Kansas City Chiefs signed TE Ryan Taylor on Thursday, May 21. OG Ricky Henry was released to make room for Taylor on the roster.

Footballguys view: Originally a seventh-round pick by the Packers in 2011, Taylor spent last season on three different rosters. If he makes the Chiefs roster, he'll mainly be a special teams player.

  Jets | NYJ to have tight end platoon    Thu May 21, 05:50 PM

New York Jets TEs Jeff Cumberland and Jace Amaro will both start this season, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said Cumberland would be lined up in the 'Y' position while Amaro would play the H-back and fullback positions.

Footballguys view: The 'Y' tight end is the more traditional (blocking) role. The 'H' tight end is the guy who will be moved around the field to create mismatches. Amaro has the athleticism to be a weapon in the new Chan Gailey offense. He's going undrafted right now in 12-team PPR leagues, but he's someone who should be on your waiver wire speed dial.

  Jets | Will use two tight ends    Thu May 21, 02:58 PM

New York Jets coach Todd Bowles plans to use a package with two tight ends, including TE Jeff Cumberland and TE Jace Amaro. Cumberland will be a traditional tight end and Amaro will line up in a halfback-style position.

Footballguys view: In other words, if you are inclined to take one of the two in fantasy, Amaro is your guy. Cumberland will get some targets, but mostly be a blocker type while Amaro will be more of a 'move' tight end, a position much better suited to fantasy production. Neither is currently being drafted, which makes them ideal free agent acquisitions. That could change this summer, and Amaro in particular could end up a strong TE2, if quarterback Geno Smith can progress this season.

  Falcons | Levine Toilolo to start at TE for ATL?    Wed May 20, 03:48 PM

Atlanta Falcons TE Levine Toilolo is the projected starting tight end this season. TEs Jacob Tamme, Tony Moeaki and Mickey Shuler will also be in the mix at the position this offseason.

Footballguys view: Toilolo isn't an exciting fantasy option. We're keeping an eye on veteran Jacob Tamme. He's still got the ability to get open against zone coverage, and Tamme can do something with the rock after the catch. Neither player is getting drafted in 14-round, 12-team PPR leagues at this time.

  Saints | Josh Hill projected to start for Saints    Wed May 20, 03:21 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill is slated as the starting tight end this season with TE Jimmy Graham now in Seattle. TE Benjamin Watson could give Hill a run for his money, however.

Footballguys view: Watson isn't the same player he used to be while Hill is a player on the rise. His final year in college at Idaho State, Hill led the NCAA in receptions (70) for a tight end. He was an undrafted free agent for the Saints in 2013, and he's been working hard to impress in Graham's shadow. Hill only had 14 catches last year, but five of those were for touchdowns. He's a mid-range TE2 with low-end TE1 ability and opportunity.

  Buccaneers | Emmanuel Ogbuehi waived    Tue May 19, 05:17 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Emmanuel Ogbuehi (undisclosed) was waived/injured Tuesday, May 19.

  Chiefs | Two players waived    Tue May 19, 05:12 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Manasseh Garner and TE Earnest Pettway were waived Tuesday, May 19.

  Seahawks | Make two roster moves    Tue May 19, 07:10 AM

Free-agent TE Earnest Pettway (Chiefs) and DL Charles Tuaau (Chiefs) were both signed by the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, May 18.

Footballguys view: Tuaau regularly made plays on the other side of the line of scrimmage when he was the Lone Star Conference Defensive Player of the Year at Texas A&M (Commerce). Pettway was an athletic tight end from Villanova with good speed down the seam. Both are long shots to make the final roster or even the practice squad in Seattle.

  Cardinals | Ifeanyi Momah likely to make team    Mon May 18, 07:01 PM

Arizona Cardinals TE Ifeanyi Momah has a good chance to make the team's final roster following the retirement of TE John Carlson. Momah is likely to make the full-time switch to tight end, after playing wide receiver in high school and college. Momah is expected to earn a spot on the Cardinals' depth chart behind tight ends Troy Niklas and Darren Fells.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Momah can make the final roster, but we're not expecting him to be much of a fantasy factor--even for fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues. Momah was an undrafted free agent out of Boston College in 2013. He signed with the Philadelphia Eagles and was released during final cuts. Last year he spent time with the Browns and the Lions.

  Cardinals | Sign Gerald Christian    Mon May 18, 05:46 PM

Arizona Cardinals rookie TE Gerald Christian signed a four-year deal Monday, May 18. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Christian was the NFL's "Mr. Irrelevant" as the final pick in the 2015 NFL draft. He's a talented move tight end who can make difficult catches seem routine. Christian is not a great blocker and is not on a team that uses the tight end that much. He'll be a longshot to make the final roster, but he has an intriguing skill set.

  Titans | Tevin Westbrook signed    Mon May 18, 02:45 PM

Undrafted free-agent TE Tevin Westbrook (Florida) signed an undisclosed contract with the Tennessee Titans Monday, May 18.

Footballguys view: Westbrook caught eight passes for 81 yards and two touchdowns last year for the Gators. He's a big target, measuring in at 6'5" 256 pounds.

  Broncos | Shane Ray will likely be limited    Mon May 18, 07:44 AM

Denver Broncos DE Shane Ray (toe) is likely to be limited in his work at minicamp this week, if he can participate. The team just lost TE Jeff Heuerman, their third-round pick, to a torn ACL and the Broncos do not want another higher-profile rookie injury.

Footballguys view: Ray's turf toe did not require surgery to repair, but the Broncos want to make sure he's healed properly before they push him too much in practice. We'll likely see the rookie pass-rusher limited in practice until the team gets to training camp. Ray will serve as a backup pass-rusher this year for the Broncos, spelling DeMarcus Ware or Von Miller on certain downs.

  Cowboys | Five more years for Jason Witten?    Sun May 17, 08:24 PM

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten said Sunday, May 17, that he and QB Tony Romo could play four or five more years if they continue to play like they did last season.

Footballguys view: We'll pump the brakes on this. Witten is entering his 13th season, and he's not quite the same player he used to be. He should still be able to put up top-10 fantasy tight end numbers this season, but we're not so sure he can stay with the Cowboys for five more years.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta likely to start on PUP    Sat May 16, 07:06 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) will likely begin the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Pitta's hip injury could be career-ending, but he's working on the road to recovery at this time. The Ravens aren't counting on him, and that's why they drafted Maxx Williams in the 2015 NFL draft.

  Browns | Randall Telfer may not play in 2015    Sat May 16, 10:49 AM

Cleveland Browns TE Randall Telfer (foot) is recovering from foot surgery, and the team is not sure if he will be able to play in 2015. Head coach Mike Pettine said there is a chance Telfer could play near the end of the season.

Footballguys view: Look for him to either be put on season-ending Injured Reserve or on the PUP list to begin the season. Even when healthy, Telfer is not a fantasy factor as he's mainly a run-blocking tight end.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta optimistic    Sat May 16, 10:40 AM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) said he is feeling good and is optimistic about playing in 2015. He has been participating in offseason workouts and is allowed to run and cut. Pitta has also been running routes and catching patches during practice.

Footballguys view: We're not as optimistic about Pitta's return. The hip problem he has could be career-threatening, and the Ravens have prepared for a future without him by selecting Maxx Williams in the 2015 NFL draft. Fantasy owners should not be expecting a comeback here, but make sure to watch his progress.

  Cowboys | Geoff Swaim agrees to terms    Thu May 14, 03:04 PM

Dallas Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim signed a contract with the team Thursday, May 14. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Swaim is a longshot to make the roster, but the 2015 seventh-round pick has good size and strength as a blocker. He's athletic, but his separation and run-after-the catch ability leave a lot to be desired. At this time, Gavin Escobar seems to be the incumbent for when Jason Witten retires.

  Jaguars | Ben Koyack signed    Thu May 14, 12:31 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Ben Koyack signed a contract with the team Thursday, May 14. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: In the seventh round of the 2015 NFL draft, the Jaguars decided to take a developmental tight end as Koyack was their pick. His game is reminiscent of Luke Willson (Seahawks) as Koyack is big and can challenge the middle seam of a defense. He only has one year of starting experience under his belt, and Koyack needs some mechanical work. He's a fine player to develop behind Julius Thomas, and fantasy owners in deep dynasty leagues should be monitoring his progress.

  Bengals | C.J. Uzomah signs deal    Thu May 14, 12:31 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah signed a contract with the team Thursday, May 14. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: In the fifth round of the 2015 NFL draft, the Bengals added Uzomah--a former high school wide receiver with move tight end ability at the pro level. Uzomah can line up all over the field (slot, in-line, out wide, in the backfield), and this versatility could help him get on the field as a rookie. He'll compete for playing time behind Tyler Eifert and fellow rookie Tyler Kroft.

  Steelers | Jesse James signed    Thu May 14, 12:03 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James signed a four-year contract with the team Thursday, May 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: James, a fifth-round pick by the Steelers this year, has great size at 6'7" 260 pounds. His length makes him a great target near pay dirt as he can high-point passes away from defenders. James is not a seam-ripper, but he does have decent straight-line speed. He's an in-line tight end the team will groom and develop.

  49ers | Torrey Smith should free up Vernon Davis    Thu May 14, 08:17 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith's arrival should free up TE Vernon Davis to stretch the field, according to general manager Trent Baalke. 'The one thing that really shows up is the way the field's opened up more with the speed or Torrey being able to stretch the outside,' Baalke said. 'And it really helps Vernon's game because now Vernon's game is (to) stretch the field a little bit, as well.'

Footballguys view: The team needs to get Davis back on track after a hugely disappointing 2014 season where he only caught 26 passes for 245 yards and two touchdowns. Smith has the speed to stretch the field and open up routes underneath. We'll see if his presence can help spring Davis free.

  Colts | Dwayne Allen missing offseason program    Wed May 13, 08:05 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen is missing the first four weeks of the Colts' offseason program as part of his plan to play as many as 20 games in 2015. "The high ankle sprain (from 2014) lingered a little longer then I wanted it to. I talked to (Coach Pagano) about it and there was an understanding. I've been out here for two months, just grinding, getting my body in good shape so that I can go out and the team can depend on me. Getting late in the year (2014), I had a banged up knee and a banged up ankle. They didn't feel, I didn't feel, that they could depend on me and that was frustrating because I feel as if, in every situation throughout the season, they can count me," Allen said.

Footballguys view: Allen expects to rejoin the team Monday, May 18, for the beginning of organized team activities. The Colts have a ton of weapons on offense after collecting wide receivers through the draft and free agency. These added weapons could impact the fantasy numbers that Allen puts up in 2015. His current ADP is TE10 (9.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Ravens | Maxx Williams to make RZ impact?    Wed May 13, 06:44 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams is expected to make an impact right away on third down and in the red zone, according to general manager Ozzie Newsome.

Footballguys view: We consider Williams a star in the making. He reminds us of a young Jason Witten (Cowboys) because of his smooth athleticism, soft hands and fearlessness running routes over the middle. The Ravens needed a TE1 with Owen Daniels (Broncos) moving on in free agency. Williams can be considered a TE2 with TE1 upside for fantasy owners. His current ADP is TE16 (12.12) in 12-team PPR leagues...but we expect this to rise as the season gets closer.

  49ers | Blake Bell signs rookie deal    Mon May 11, 10:25 PM

The San Francisco 49ers signed TE Blake Bell to a contract Monday, May 11. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: This wasn't a great class of tight ends, but we love Bell's upside. At 6'6" 260 pounds, Bell can fly down the field and create mismatches against linebackers or safeties. Bell only played tight end one season for the Sooners, and he's still somewhat raw at the position. If he can develop, Bell has high upside and potential.

  Patriots | Fred Davis agrees with New England    Mon May 11, 10:06 AM

Free-agent TE Fred Davis (Redskins) agreed to a one-year deal with the New England Patriots Monday, May 11.

Footballguys view: Well that was quick. Davis was just reinstated by the league last week, and now he finds himself with the defending Super Bowl champs. Davis was out of the league last year after repeated violations of the substance abuse policy, a DUI and a domestic incident. It's an interesting move for the Patriots as they are jam packed at the position. Behind starter Rob Gronkowski, they have Scott Chandler, Michael Hoomanawanui and Tim Wright. Rookie A.J. Derby, a sixth-round pick, is also on the depth chart. Davis is no guarantee to make the final roster.

  Bengals | Kevin Brock released    Mon May 11, 02:06 AM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Kevin Brock was released by the team on Sunday, May 10, making him a free agent.

Footballguys view: The Bengals added rookie Tyler Kroft (a Rutgers product like Brock) in the 2015 NFL draft, thus making Brock expendable. He should be picked up to be a camp body at least.

  Raiders | Clive Walford confident    Fri May 8, 11:01 PM

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford said he modeled his game after New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski, and general manager Reggie McKenzie said Walford is a 'complete' tight end.

Footballguys view: Walford is not Gronkowski, but he is an athletic move tight end who can make difficult catches seem routine. He has the speed to open up the middle seam of a defense, and Walford goes all out for passes thrown his way. He'll have to improve his consistency as Walford would sometimes disappear from the game during his time in college.

  Ravens | Maxx Williams agrees to terms with BAL    Thu May 7, 05:12 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Maxx Williams agreed to an undisclosed deal Thursday, May 7, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Think of a young Jason Witten (Cowboys) when considering what Williams could be at the pro level. He's a smooth athlete who can run away from linebackers over the middle. Williams has soft hands and plays with a nasty attitude. He's not a seam-ripper, but he can step in and start--and star--for the Ravens from day one. Fantasy owners should consider Williams a TE2 who could quickly become an every week starter as a TE1 in 2015.

  NFL | Fred Davis reinstated    Thu May 7, 12:18 PM

Free-agent TE Fred Davis (Redskins) was reinstated by the NFL Thursday, May 7, and is allowed to sign with any team.

Footballguys view: Davis was initially suspended indefinitely in early 2014 for repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy. We'd be shocked to see multiple teams lined up to sign him on the open market. Davis is now 29 years old, and it's been a few years since he was actually productive in the NFL.

  Cardinals | Troy Niklas due for big year?    Tue May 5, 05:49 PM

Arizona Cardinals TE Troy Niklas has much expected from him this season, especially following the retirement of TE John Carlson.

Footballguys view: A big year? Arizona tight ends do next to nothing under head coach Bruce Arians. Last year, Carlson had a 'big year' with 33 catches for 350 yards and one touchdown. There are plenty of other teams we're plucking fantasy tight ends from, Arizona is not one of them.

  Cardinals | Jermaine Gresham a possibility for AZ?    Tue May 5, 04:11 PM

Former Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (back) could be targeted by the Arizona Cardinals if he is medically cleared, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports.

Footballguys view: Gresham isn't cleared medically, and that's why he's currently without a team. Let's no go overboard with the connection to Arizona here. Yes, the Cardinals could have interest...and they may even bring the veteran on board. However, tight ends don't do much under head coach Bruce Arians and any Cardinals tight end isn't going to be much of a fantasy factor in 2015.

  Bengals | More on Tyler Eifert    Tue May 5, 01:35 PM

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (shoulder, elbow) has been cleared from his dislocated elbow but is awaiting clearance on his shoulder.

Footballguys view: The "B" word (bust) is going to be tossed around even more this year if Eifert can't stay healthy and fails to produce. He said he lost 15 pounds but has packed on some of that back to 250 and is working on bulking up. Eifert is expected to be ready for training camp.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert will be ready for camp    Mon May 4, 07:10 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow, shoulder) said he will be able to fully participate once training camp begins. Eifert has been running routes and catching passes as part of his rehab.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Bengals here. They went ahead and added Tyler Kroft (Rutgers) in the third round of the 2015 NFL draft to improve their depth at the position. We love Eifert's upside, but he's got to start staying healthy and producing at the expected level. In two pro seasons, Eifert only has 42 catches, 482 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns. That's not what the team was expecting when they selected him in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft.

  Ravens | Dennis Pitta not in Ravens' future?    Mon May 4, 05:18 PM

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip) may have an unclear future in Baltimore if he is even able to play next season. TE Maxx Williams was selected in the second round and is primed to take over Pitta's role if necessary.

Footballguys view: When the Ravens selected Williams, it was a sign that Pitta could be done in the NFL. The hip injury he suffered is career threatening, and there's no guarantee that he ever plays football again. Williams was our favorite tight end in this year's draft, and he plays like a young Jason Witten (Cowboys).

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham is committed to learning to block since he was traded to the Seahawks, according to offensive line coach Tom Cable.

  Vikings | MyCole Pruitt selected    Sat May 2, 02:02 PM

Southern Illinois TE MyCole Pruitt was selected by the Minnesota Vikings with the 143rd overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: He'll be stuck behind Kyle Rudoph barring a big injury and used mostly as a blocker in the offense.

  Bengals | Tyler Kroft selected by CIN    Fri May 1, 10:51 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals selected Rutgers TE Tyler Kroft in Round 3 (No. 85 overall) in the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Kroft is a big blocker who can help set the edge as a run-blocker. He's too inconsistent as a pass-catcher, and we think that limits his fantasy upside in the pros.

  Raiders | Clive Walford added by Oakland    Fri May 1, 09:53 PM

The Oakland Raiders selected University of Miami (Fla.) TE Clive Walford in Round 3 (No. 68 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1.

Footballguys view: An interesting addition as this is a guy who isn't exciting, but is a solid pass catcher who is reliable and someone Derek Carr can call on a lot without worrying.

The Baltimore Ravens selected University of Minnesota TE Maxx Williams in Round 2 (No. 55 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Dennis Pitta struggles to stay healthy, and Williams could be replacing him. A 'move' tight end, Williams could be a nice addition to an offense which lost Torry Smith this offseason.

  Panthers | Devin Funchess selected by Carolina    Fri May 1, 07:59 PM

Michigan TE Devin Funchess was selected 41st overall by the Carolina Panthers in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1.

Footballguys view: This is a bit of a head-scratcher. The Panthers still have no help on the offensive line, and Funchness is a decent but not fantastic tight end. He won't have an impact immediately for fantasy, but is probably worth a second or third round rookie pick.

  Bears | Coach expects Martellus Bennett to stay    Thu Apr 30, 02:38 PM

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett is not expected to be traded during the 2015 NFL Draft, according to head coach John Fox. Fox said he has talked with Bennett and indicated that Bennett is part of the team.

Footballguys view: The Bears might flirt with Bennett getting traded but his contract and the fact that they will be short Brandon Marshall will factor against that. Bennett had flashes of elite tight end ability but hasn't been consistent. we think he'll be a decent spot start in fantasy but unreliable.

Alabama-Birmingham TE Kennard Backman worked out privately for the Miami Dolphins during the pre-draft process and is a player the team is believed to be high on.

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett was the subject of trade talks between the Bears and Seattle Seahawks before Seattle traded for TE Jimmy Graham this offseason. Bennett is reportedly currently being shopped.

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett could be on the move since the Bears are entertaining trade offers for him, according to sources. Bennett is looking for a new contract from the Bears or from any team that acquires him.

Footballguys view: Bennett is needed as a second target to take the heat off of Alshon Jeffery who lost Brandon Marshall on the other side of the field. Look for Bennett to get paid in one of the first big tests for new GM Ryan Pace.

  Ravens | Clive Walford visited    Mon Apr 27, 02:24 AM

Miami TE Clive Walford visited the Baltimore Ravens last week before the deadline for 2015 NFL Draft visits passed.

Footballguys view: The future of Dennis Pitta is still very much up in the air. The Ravens will likely address the position at some point in the draft even though they drafted Crockett Gillmore last year. Walford is the second-best tight end in this draft class, and he can make insane catches seem routine. He can line up wide or attack the deep seam of a defense, and Walford creates mismatches because of his athleticism and catch radius. We think he's a second-round pick.
