Jason Witten
Week 3 bust alert: Jason Witten
Jason Witten, TE, DAL
3:19 PM
News: Jason Witten has been the lone member of the Dallas passing game to not do anything thus far this season. 

Terrance Williams scored a touchdown in Week 1 and last week Dez Bryant found the end zone. Witten, meanwhile, has six catches for 46 yards on 13 targets.

He has a tough matchup this week against the Rams, who held Witten in check last year with five catches for 67 yards on six targets. St. Louis has only allowed three tight ends to reach double digits in Fantasy points in the past 34 games, so we're not expecting a Witten breakout performance this week.

He is a good buy-low candidate though since he still has plenty of chances to play at a high level this season.

Heath Miller
Sit Heath Miller in Week 3

News: Like Kyle Rudolph, we're waiting and still anticipating a quality season for Heath Miller.

But he's been dreadful for Fantasy owners thus far with three Fantasy points combined against the Browns and Ravens.

The Panthers haven't allowed multiple passing touchdowns in their past 10 home games. So if Ben Roethlisberger connects with Antonio Brown or Markus Wheaton, Miller could be in trouble.

It does help his cause that Carolina allowed nine touchdowns to opposing tight ends last season, but until Miller straightens out his production we can't recommend him in the majority of leagues.

Kyle Rudolph
Kyle Rudolph not a strong Week 3 option

3:14 PM
News: Kyle Rudolph's breakout season has yet to start and Fantasy owners are beginning to panic.

He did score a touchdown in Week 1 against the Rams and he had five catches for 53 yards in Week 2 against New England. But we're expecting more now that he's with offensive coordinator Norv Turner, and hopefully he'll start producing soon.

The Saints allowed a touchdown to Levine Toilolo in Week 1, but New Orleans was among the better teams at defending tight ends last year. You can start Rudolph if he's your No. 1 guy, but I like Niles Paul, Larry Donnell and Dwayne Allen better, by comparison.

Charles Clay
Can't trust Charles Clay Week 3
Charles Clay, TE, MIA
3:12 PM
News: Charles Clay is dealing with a knee injury and his production has been limited to start the season with just nine catches for 58 yards on 14 targets.

Even though the Chiefs have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends this year in Delanie Walker, Julius Thomas and Jacob Tamme, we still can't recommend starting Clay.

He now has five games in a row without a touchdown and we're not expecting that streak to end even with the favorable matchup.

Analysis: 

Martellus Bennett
Martellus Bennett a good Week 3 start
Martellus Bennett, TE, CHI
3:09 PM
News: Martellus Bennett is off to a stellar start through his first two games with 15 catches for 137 yards and two touchdowns on 18 targets.

He is second on the team in targets to Marshall (20) and the Bears have done a nice job featuring Bennett in the early part of the year. We hope it continues this week against a suspect Jets secondary.

The Jets haven't faced a tight end of note yet with matchups against the Raiders and Packers, but last year New York allowed seven touchdowns to opposing tight ends. There were nine tight ends against the Jets last year that had at least six targets and eight of them finished with at least eight Fantasy points in a standard league.

Bennett has at least six targets in five of his past six games going back to last season.

Analysis: 

Dennis Pitta
Dennis Pitta a solid Week 3 start
Dennis Pitta, TE, BAL
2:23 PM
News: Dennis Pitta got Kubiak-ed in Week 2 against the Steelers when his backup, Owen Daniels, scored two touchdowns. The irony is Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak used to steal touchdowns from Daniels all the time when he coached the Texans.

Don't panic about Pitta. He had 10 catches for 83 yards in Week 1 against the Bengals and he should remain a significant contributor most weeks, including here.

The Browns were just beat up by Jimmy Graham in Week 2 at home, which happens to most teams, and Graham had 10 catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns as Cleveland tried to limit the Saints from throwing downfield.

If the Browns do that against the Ravens this week then count on Pitta having a big game.

Delanie Walker
Start Delanie Walker Week 3
Delanie Walker, TE, TEN
2:12 PM
News: As the offensive coordinator for the Chargers last season, Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt faced the Bengals twice, including the playoffs.

Both times he was able to get tight end Ladarius Green in the end zone. Whisenhunt will try and use a similar game plan for Delanie Walker, who is off to a ridiculous start this season.

Walker has 13 catches for 179 yards and two touchdowns on 18 targets and he should remain a starter in all leagues. The Bengals struggled in Week 1 against the Ravens when Dennis Pitta and Owen Daniels combined for 14 catches for 117 yards, which bodes well for Walker.

News: Browns coach Mike Pettine said he is "cautiously optimistic" about tight end Jordan Cameron's chances of playing Week 3 against the Ravens. Pettine said he would know more about his status after practice Thursday.

Cameron sat out Week 2 against the Saints due to a shoulder injury.

News: San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis was unable to practice Wednesday.

The news shouldn't come as a surprise, as Davis was seen on crutches Wednesday. He's dealing with a deep bruise, but there's a chance he'll play Week 3.
