Description: The Giants have seemed to have found their tight end in Larry Donnell.
Insight: He had seven receptions for 81 yards during Week 2, and has totaled 12 catches for 137 yards a touchdown, thus far. Eli Manning seems to trust him, and with the Giants offensive line struggling, Donnell should continue to see a ton of targets on quick, intermediate targets.
Description: Detroit rookie tight end Eric Ebron arrived with a lot of hype, but the production isn't there yet.
Insight: The Lions have a number of options in front of Ebron, namely Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate along with Joique Bell and Reggie Bush out of the backfield and Ebron has just seven targets, three catches and 38 yards. Ebron should only be owned in keeper leagues.
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has gotten off to a lackluster start this season.
Insight: He's managed only six receptions for 46 yards thus far. A lot of that has to do with Romo's inconsistent play. If Dallas' QB is able to get it together, Witten should be able to get back to his career averages. For now however, consider Witten a TE2.
Description: Redskins tight end Niles Paul filled in admirably for the injured Jordan Reed.
Insight: He came out of nowhere to haul in eight receptions, 99 yards, and a touchdown. With Reed still on the shelf, Paul looks like a solid fill-in option. Paul is a TE2 heading into Week 3 against the Eagles.
Description: We are still awaiting results of the MRI for San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis, who left the game in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury and was seen leaving the locker room on crutches.
Insight: Davis was expected to get an MRI Monday. The 49ers could be down to third-string TE Derek Carrier for Week 3 as backup Vance McDonald is dealing with a knee injury.
Description: Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is becoming one of the team's go-to-guys in clutch situations.
Insight: He is a low-end TE1 that can provide some excellent value as he's averaging 81.5 ypg through the first two contests. The Eagles are using multiple tight end formations that allowed Ertz to be on the field 76 percent of the time.
Description: San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis left the game in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury and was seen leaving the locker room on crutches, according to a csnbayarea.com report
Insight: Davis is expected to get an MRI Monday, so we should know more later today or Tuesday. He didn't do much in this one, with just three catches for 39 yards, but was big in the season opener with a pair of touchdown catches.
Description: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had 10 catches for 119 yards and two touchdowns in Week 2 against the Browns.
Insight: Graham was quiet early in the game, but Drew Brees began finding Graham towards the end of the first half. Graham again led New Orleans with 13 targets, which was more than twice as many as anyone else.
Description: Panthers tight end Greg Olsen had six catches for 72 yards on eight targets against the Lions in Week 2.
Insight: Olsen led the team in targets along with rookie receiver Kelvin Benjamin, but Benjamin only caught two of his targets. Olsen has nine straight games with at least four catches, which is the longest active streak among tight ends.
Description: Titans tight end Delanie Walker owners hit the jackpot with a 10-catch, 142-yard, one score game.
Insight: Walker also scored in Week 1 and is quickly becoming a huge tight end threat. The Cowboys have now yielded 14 receptions for 186 yards and three scores to opposing starting tight ends. Remember that when the Rams' Jared Cook plays Dallas next weekend.
Description: Browns tight end Jordan Cameron is inactive for Week 2 against the Saints.
Insight: Cameron is still nursing the shoulder injury he suffered last Sunday in Pittsburgh. Jim Dray will likely get the most playing time at tight end for Cleveland this Sunday, but he is not a viable fantasy option.
Description: Rumors of Chargers tight end Antonio Gates "death" have been greatly exaggerated.
Insight: Gates was supposed to be in decline and ready to give way to Ladarius Green, but he was the better Chargers tight end with six catches for 81 yards in the opener. He's got a tough assignment in Week 2 against the defending Super Bowl champions.
Description: Chargers tight end Ladarius Green was on the field for just 24 of 62 plays in Week 1.
Insight: Green is expected to take over when Antonio Gates is ready to retire and some thought the changing of the guard would happen this year, but based on Week 1 its not happening. Green caught two balls for 24 yards against the Cardinals, dropping three of six targets.
Description: Detroit tight end Brandon Pettigrew (foot) was back at practice Thursday.
Insight: Pettigrew shares time with Joseph Fauria and rooke Eric Ebron and is a non-factor for fantasy owners. He caught just 41 balls for 416 yards and two scores last season and had one catch for nine yards in the opener.
Description: Browns tight end Jordan Cameron (shoulder) did not practice again on Thursday according to Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com
Insight: Cameron insisted on Wednesday that everything was "all good" even though he did not practice on Wednesday because of a shoulder injury that has bothered him since the preseason. It sounds likely that he will not play in Week 2, which actually isn't a bad thing because fantasy owners would like him to get healthy for the long term. Owners should have a backup plan ready this weekend.
Description: Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Monday that tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) could be sidelined "some time."
Insight: Gruden also called the injury "mild" just to drive Reed's fantasy owners crazy. Reed is likely week-to-week, and fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to be ready for Week 2. Reed is a TE1 in 10-12 team leagues but his injury history is starting to become a concern.
Description: Broncos tight end Julius Thomas caught seven passes for 104 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 1 victory against the Colts.
Insight: Thomas seemed to be Peyton Manning's favorite goal-line target with receiver Wes Welker out with a suspension. He created matchup problems in the secondary, catching seven of eight targets and all three of Manning's touchdowns. As long as Manning is quarterback, Thomas is a no-brainer No. 1 tight end every week.
Description: The Bengals are hopeful tight end Tyler Eifert will only miss a few weeks according to FOX's Jay Glazer.
Insight: Eifert dislocated his right elbow after making a catch in the first quarter against the Ravens on Sunday. Reportedly, the elbow "popped right back in" but the ligaments have to heal before he can return. Jermaine Gersham will play tight end on every down until Eifert gets back, but Gresham will not produce the same kind of receiving numbers as Eifert could.
Description: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) is active and will play Sunday.
Insight: We always expected Gronkowski to start against the Dolphins. He is The Sports Network's No. 3 tight end for Week 1. He might still be on a play limit, but he's going to make the important catches.
Description: Texans TE Garrett Graham (back) is inactive for Week 1.
Insight: Graham has always been a sneaky option while sharing the position with Owens Daniels. Daniels is gone and Graham could have fantasy value if he can get healthy. Rookie C.J. Fiedorowicz should see most of the tight end targets in Week 1.
Description: Chargers tight end Antonio Gates (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday night's opener against the Cardinals according to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego.
Insight: Gates twaked his hamstring on Saturday. He was officially "limited" for the rest of practice and will be a game-time decision, which is tough for fantasy owners because he plays in the last game of the week. LaDarius Green is another tight end option from the Chargers.
