Tight End

Vernon Davis, DEN (33%) – The recent trade to the Broncos could spike Davis’ fantasy value. It’s also very possible that he could be washed up regardless of who is throwing him the ball as he hasn’t been relevant in two seasons. I’m skeptical, but am adding VD in a few leagues just in case he finds his old form. Manning has historically been very TE-friendly and Davis was an impact fantasy player in his prime.

Zach Ertz, PHI (53%) – Has had at least 7 targets in three straight games and is finally becoming a consistent part of the Eagles attack. That could all change with Mark Sanchez under center, but Ertz has the talent to be a starting fantasy TE if he gets the looks.

Benjamin Watson, NO (52%) -Has over 10 targets and 125 receiving yards in two of the last three games. It still could be a fluke, but I’m rolling the dice in a couple of leagues.

Heath Miller, PIT (28%) – Big Ben is back and so is Miller’s fantasy value. He’s always been Roethlisberger’s safety-valve and Miller had 13 targets and 100+ yards in his QBs first game back.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TB (34%) – The injury prone TE could be the #2 target for the Bucs behind Mike Evans if he can ever get on the field. This could be the week he plays and it would be smart to pick him up before he has another big game.

Jacob Tamme, ATL (6%) – Has double-digit targets in two of his last four games. His production has been inconsistent, but he’s the starting TE in a high powered offense and could have some useful fantasy lines in the second half.
