Rams' Lance Kendricks: Catches just two passes against New England
Lance Kendricks, TE, LAR

News: Kendricks caught two of five targets for 13 yards during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

More concerning for his fantasy value, Kendricks played just 63 percent of the offensive snaps, and Tyler Higbee played 56 percent. Kendricks' hit-or-miss fantasy stock can't afford to lose playing time to the rookie tight end, Still, with the focus likely shifting to the Rams' future, Higbee could continue to be more involved in the offense.

Tyler Higbee
Rams' Tyler Higbee: Catches two passes against Pats
Tyler Higbee, TE, LAR
2:34 AM
News: Higbee caught two of four targets for 16 yards during Sunday's loss to New England.

With just eight targets over the past four games, Higbee remains nothing more than a tertiary option in the passing game. However, Los Angeles has only four wins, and the Rams should be looking ahead to 2017. Higbee played 56 percent of the offensive snaps in Week 13, and while he could begin to see a few extra targets, it likely won't provide enough of an opportunity for him to become fantasy relevant.

Mychal Rivera
Raiders' Mychal Rivera: Season-high 57 yards Sunday
Mychal Rivera, TE, OAK
1:44 AM
News: Rivera caught three passes on five targets for 57 yards during Sunday's win over the Bills.

Rivera saw a season-high five targets in Week 13, which he translated into the most productive game of his 2016 campaign with an average of 19 yards per reception. The Raiders' tight end situation remains limited in terms of fantasy value, however, with neither Rivera nor Clive Walford stepping up on a weekly basis.

Darren Waller
Ravens' Darren Waller: Nabs a 15-yard reception Sunday
Darren Waller, TE, BAL
12:24 AM
News: Waller caught one of two targets for 15 yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

Both Waller and fellow second-year tight end Nick Boyle each saw 28 snaps and two targets Sunday while Dennis Pitta saw the most playing time among that position group. Since being added to the active roster, Waller has pulled in seven of nine targets for 60 yards. Depending on when Crockett Gillmore returns,there could be a logjam at tight end behind Dennis Pitta given that Boyle has already started to see a slight uptick in snaps since being reinstated from his suspension.

Brandon Myers
Buccaneers' Brandon Myers: Held catchless in Week 13 win
Brandon Myers, TE, TB
12:18 AM
News: Myers (hip) was not targeted in Sunday's 28-21 win over the Chargers.

Myers was able to take the field after nursing a hip injury throughout the practice week, but remained firmly entrenched as a blocking tight end, particularly after Luke Stocker (ankle) exited the contest. The veteran tight end's four catches on the season equal the lowest amount he's compiled since his rookie campaign in 2009.

Analysis: 

Nick Boyle
Ravens' Nick Boyle: Records first receptions of 2016
Nick Boyle, TE, BAL
12:10 AM
News: Boyle hauled in both his targets for 24 yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

The second-year man was more involved in the offense Sunday than he was in his season debut, seeing eight more snaps and getting his first targets of the year. He brought in both of those targets, but Dennis Pitta was clearly the top receiving option among Baltimore tight ends as he saw 11 targets in 34 snaps. Boyle's primary role seems to be as an inline blocker on run plays. His productivity as a pass-catcher in his rookie season suggests that he could start to see more snaps on passing downs, but Pitta remains the primary pass catching tight end in Baltimore's offense.

Randall Telfer
Browns' Randall Telfer: Doesn't practice Monday

News: Telfer (thumb) did not participate in practice Monday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Telfer underwent thumb surgery on Nov. 28, and although he didn't practice Monday, he's still expected to return at some point this week. We'll continue to monitor his status, but if he's unable to go against the Bengals, Seth DeValve will assume backup tight end duties.

Analysis: 

Jermaine Gresham
Cardinals' Jermaine Gresham: Makes five grabs Sunday
Jermaine Gresham, TE, ARI
12/5/2016
News: Gresham notched five receptions (on six targets) for 52 yards during Sunday's 31-23 victory against the Redskins.

Gresham turned in the most snaps of any skill-position player not named Carson Palmer -- 72 of 76 on offense -- racking up a season high in receiving yards and matching his top mark in terms of catches. With at least 30 yards in five consecutive contests, he's reeled in at least 50 percent of Carson Palmer's offerings in each one, which has equated to a catch rate of 65.5 percent (19 grabs on 29 targets). At best, though, Gresham is third in the pecking order in Arizona's passing attack behind Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson, while Michael Floyd is always a threat to make an impact as well. In any case, Gresham has at least become a consideration in deeper formats.

Analysis: 

Hunter Henry
Chargers' Hunter Henry: Non-factor in Sunday's loss
Hunter Henry, TE, SD
12/5/2016
News: Henry caught one pass for 14 yards in the loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

It's clear Henry has taken a back seat in the offense, as Antonio Gates was able to see four targets after being shut down the previous week. Henry's fantasy value at this point is entirely touchdown dependent, as the rookie tight end has caught two or fewer passes in each of the last seven weeks.

Analysis: 

Nick O'Leary
Bills' Nick O'Leary: Failure to capitalize
Nick O'Leary, TE, BUF
12/5/2016
News: O'Leary, starting for Charles Clay (personal), caught just one ball on three targets for eight yards during Sunday's loss in Oakland.

Clay's receiving numbers have been a disappointment for almost two seasons, but if this was a chance for O'Leary to usurp some of that role, it didn't happen Sunday as the second-year man put up a very Clay-like performance. More than likely, O'Leary will go back to his usual snap count when Clay returns for this week's game against Pittsburgh.
