News: Saints tight end Jimmy Graham appeared to be back to his old self, scoring his fifth touchdown of the season Thursday night against the Panthers in Week 9.

After a pass interference penalty that brought the team to the 1-yard line, Graham came down with a reception in the end zone for a 1-yard score with three seconds remaining in the first half. He caught five passes for 50 yards and a score at halftime. He only caught two passes the rest of the way and finished with seven grabs for a team-high 83 yards and score on seven targets in a 28-10 victory.

Graham has scored in back-to-back games. He'll look to extend his scoring streak to three at home in Week 10 against the 49ers.

Olsen gained 30 yards during the contest. He received just four targets. It's the second straight game where Olsen has struggled in the passing game. He received three targets and had just 16 yards Week 8 against Seattle.

Olsen will look for more Week 10 against the Eagles.

News: Ravens rookie tight end Crockett Gillmore earned praise after making his first NFL start Week 8 at Cincinnati. Gillmore replaced Owen Daniels, who had arthroscopic knee surgery Friday, and caught two passes for 23 yards. He played 51 snaps on offense, 10 on special teams.

"He did a good job, made a lot of catches, made some really good blocks," coach John Harbaugh said of Gillmore, per the Baltimore Sun. "He has a lot of potential as a player. He's big, he's physical, moves his feet well.

"I thought he did a great job of finding open spaces in zone coverage, caught the ball, got upfield, got an extra yard or two to get the first down. He did a good job with the communication, didn't have any assignment errors, which is really big for a rookie. Played hard, physical, tenacious."


Jason Witten
Jason Witten restores order

News: A mostly disappointing season for Cowboys tight end Jason Witten become all the more worrisome for Fantasy owners when backup tight end Gavin Escobar caught two touchdown passes against the Giants in Week 7.

But against the Redskins in Week 8, Witten was back in quarterback Tony Romo's sights, and Escobar was nowhere to be found. The second-year player didn't get a single target, playing only six snaps, while Witten got a season-high eight, playing all 65.

Witten also had a season-high 70 yards and scored his second touchdown this season. Granted, the touchdown came from backup quarterback Brandon Weeden, but Witten's other seven targets all came from Romo.

So were reports of Witten's demise greatly exaggerated? Well, 70 yards is still low for a season high, and the Cowboys are clearly looking to emphasize the running game this year. But if nothing else, you can trust Witten is still the tight end to own in Dallas, making him worth rostering in basically all Fantasy leagues.


Niles Paul
Timeshare limiting Redskins tight ends

News: The Redskins are making use of both Niles Paul and Jordan Reed, which makes it difficult for Fantasy owners to lean on either at this point.

The players combined for 10 targets in Week 8 against the Cowboys, seven of which went Reed's way, however, that doesn't mean Reed was the bigger part of the offense. Reed actually played just 39 percent of the team's snaps Monday, compared to 57 percent for Paul. That represents a reversal from the previous week, when it was Reed who played the majority of snaps while Paul took a backseat.

Reed has been featured more in the passing game than Paul over the last few weeks, but hasn't exactly lit it up, with just 9 Fantasy points in standard scoring over the last two weeks. With his role still somewhat limited, Reed is no sure-fire must-start Fantasy option at this point.
