TE Notes: A rested Rob Gronkowski comes off bye averaging 5/73. He’s scored in 4-of-7 appearances, and has five total touchdowns. He’s still the king. … Evan Engram is averaging 5/71 on 10 targets in three games since Odell Beckham was lost for the season, scoring each week in the process. Even with Sterling Shepard back in the fold, Engram is the Giants’ No. 1 receiver. … The TE4 by average points over the past five weeks, Jimmy Graham is all the way up to fourth in red zone targets (12). That’s two more than any other tight end. Graham’s scoring pace has really picked up over the past month. … Cameron Brate is coming off his first real dud since Week 1, but has an excellent situation and matchup. With Mike Evans suspended, targets will have to be funneled Brate’s way. He’ll be getting said targets against a Jets D allowing the fifth most tight end fantasy points.    

Jack Doyle has drawn at least seven targets in five straight games, averaging a whopping 10 in that timespan. After a few early hiccups, he has gotten on the same page with Jacoby Brissett, who has begun to find his tight end more and more often as he’s worked to get rid of the ball faster.Kyle Rudolph is another tight end who has gotten on the same page with his fill-in quarterback. The Golden Domer is averaging six catches on eight targets over his past four games. The Redskins have been extremely vulnerable up the seam. … Always playing at less than full health, Delanie Walker is one of the league’s most underrated warriors. With 12/134 over his past two games, Walker is coming off his best stretch of the year. Somehow yet to score in 2017, Walker is overdue to find the end zone. … Austin Seferian-Jenkins has had some rough touchdown luck of late — a brutal OPI call, and an even worse replay review have cost him scores — but he has just 10/69 total over his past three games. The pace should pick back up, but ASJ hasn’t established upside.

Charles Clay (knee) is tentatively expected to return this week. Tentatively. … Vernon Davis has averaged six catches for 65 yards in Jordan Reed’s two absences this season. A third is expected on Sunday. … Hunter Henry stunningly played just 35-of-56 snaps in Week 8 before the Chargers’ bye. It was his lowest snap percentage since Week 4. Expect (another) correction for this weekend’s favorable-ish matchup with the Jags. … Quietly the TE10 by average points, Tyler Kroft is averaging 47 yards since Tyler Eifert went down. … Austin Hooper seems to be learning to coexist with Mohamed Sanu, averaging 4/42 over his past two games. … Eric Ebron continues to get out-snapped by Darren Fells, but has been showing signs of life as a receiver, posting 93 yards over his past two games. Only the Giants and Broncos are allowing more fantasy points to opposing tight ends than the Browns. … Suddenly the 49ers’ starting tight end, Garrett Celek has legit sleeper/streamer appeal his target-starved team against the seam weak Giants. … Dion Sims could blunder into looks for the Bears.
