TE Notes: Travis Kelce is on pace for 1,317 receiving yards, which would be the second-most ever by a tight end. … Zach Ertz had his worst game of the season heading into the Eagles’ Week 9 bye, snagging just four passes for 26 yards. He did manage to find the end zone, lessening the blow. Now middle-of-the-field dynamo Golden Tate has been added to the mix. We can’t downgrade Ertz until we see the dynamic in action, but there is no question the two will be fighting for some of the same targets. Tate is a massive upgrade on Nelson Agholor. … George Kittle has now posted 90-yard games with each of Jimmy Garoppolo, C.J. Beathard and Nick Mullens. This guy seems pretty good. … Week 9 was the first time a healthy O.J. Howard was held below 60 yards, but he still went 4/53/2 against the Panthers. Howard is living up to his freak college profile.  

Rob Gronkowski’s (back) status is unknown. He has both played and sat in these situations in the past. Fantasy owners should plan on not knowing Gronk’s availability before inactives are announced at 11:30 AM ET on Sunday morning. … At least to my eye, Jimmy Graham has looked better physically in recent weeks. It has not paid huge dividends in the box scores, but Week 10 opponent Miami has been getting embarrassed on the reg’ by enemy seam stretchers. … Coming off his best game of the season (6/76/1), 33-year-old Greg Olsen has moved remarkably well considering he’s playing through a foot issue that is expected to require surgery at season’s end. The Steelers are soft up the seam, serving up the fifth-most tight end fantasy points. … Jack Doyle out-caught (6-3), out-targeted (7-3), out-gained (70-37), out-snapped (57-17) and ran more routes (20-13) than Eric Ebron in his Week 8 return. Although both players scored touchdowns, it would certainly appear Doyle has reclaimed No. 1 status. … Freddie Kitchens’ promotion got David Njoku back on track. Njoku has now cleared 50 yards in 5-of-6 Baker Mayfield starts.

There is certainly a risk this is too deep a fade for Jared Cook. It’s just that the Raiders’ offense is all the way off the rails and many more stable options have strong Week 10 setups. Cook has posted 20 yards or fewer in 3-of-4 games. … Trey Burton is a lot like Vance McDonald. We know the upside is there, but the weekly volume makes him a risky TE1. … Speaking of McDonald, he has a date with a Panthers defense surrendering the most tight end fantasy points. … Facing the team allowing the second-most TE fantasy points is Jordan Reed, who should have a little more upside with Paul Richardson (shoulder, injured reserve) no longer competing for intermediate targets. As for Richardson’s lost deep looks, that’s where Vernon Davis, TE2, comes in. … Evan Engram went 5-of-9 in Week 8, but he’s rendered mid-range TE2 because of his offense and a deeper league-wide TE group. … With A.J. Green (toe) sidelined, I wanted to have C.J. Uzomah higher. The problem is a tough matchup in a Saints defense that has limited tight end production. Uzomah’s 2018 track record also isn’t good.
