Our top 20 tight ends for week 4
News and notes for week 4 tight ends
TE with BYE week – Heath Miller, Coby Fleener
Brandon Myers - Myers lead the Raiders in reception yardage in week 3, with 55 yards on 4 receptions. No TD, but those will come as he is emerging as one of Carson Palmer’s most trusted targets, and thus breaks into our top 20 as a deep sleeper TE to keep an eye on.
Jared Cook - His hold on this list is tenuous at best. He left Sunday’s game with an undisclosed injury, and we will update our rankings if it is deemed to be serious.
Jason Witten - Witten was dropping passes all over the field in week 3 vs the Tampa Bay Bucs, chances are that Romo will stick with his big man, and the reception yardage will start coming. We’re not ready to give up on Witten just yet, and he stays in the top ten as a recommended play.
Vernon Davis - Davis currently leads all TE’s with just over 40 fantasy points through 3 weeks. It should be no surprise as Alex Smith will settle for the safe intermediate routes more often than he will air it out. Davis is a must start going forward in 2012.
Martellus Bennett - One of the more pleasant surprises in 2012, Bennett has reached must start status as one of Eli’s favorite red zone targets. A player who was largely unowned coming out of fantasy drafts should be owned in over 90% of leagues after another solid performance in week 3.
