The veteran tight end has earned his NFL chops primarily as a pass-catcher, but gets officially gets the starting nod against the Rams. Myers could see some modest attention from Jameis Winston when he's not engaged in blocking duties, but Cameron Brate may still see the majority of the tight end targets.
The blocking tight end had been ruled out as of Friday with his ankle injury after logging a DNP for each practice session this past week. Brandon Myers will start in Stocker's place, and given both the latter's absence and the Friday release of Austin Seferian-Jenkins, could receive a modest amount of attention from Jameis Winston.
Cameron will have to pass standard concussion protocol testing before he can return to the field. If he is ruled out for the remainder of the contest, Dion Sims will take over as the starting tight end, with MarQueis Gray serving as the only other option on the active roster.
Pruitt was limited during practice all week, and after evaluating him Sunday morning, team trainers evidently determined that the tight end wasn't ready to go. Since he's the No. 3 option on the depth chart behind Kyle Rudolph and Rhett Ellison, Pruitt won't see many snaps even once he returns to active status.
With wideouts Sammy Watkins and Greg Salas inactive, Clay - who practiced in a limited fashion both Thursday and Friday -- figures to remain a key cog in the Bills' Week 3 passing attack, assuming no issues with his knee. In Week 2's loss to the Jets, Clay caught five passes for 27 yards on a team-high seven targets.
Ebron still maintained a questionable designation heading into the weekend after logging a full practice Friday, but after being left off the inactive report, the tight end should be in line for his usual workload. He's seen a decent amount of involvement through the Lions' first two games, amassing 99 yards and a touchdown on nine catches (12 targets).
With Walker out Sunday, Anthony Fasano, Jace Amaro and Phillip Supernaw are on hand to handle the Titans' Week 3 TE duties, with all three representing fantasy lineup darts.
Eifert logged three consecutive limited practices this week, but was not expected to suit up despite the fact that he was never officially ruled out. A return next week for Thursday's matchup with Miami remains a possibility, but for the time being, C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft stand to see the majority of tight end snaps for Cincinnati. Despite the short week ahead, a Week 4 return for Eifert has been the target since late-August.
Walker was only able to practice Thursday this week, and while the team will give him every opportunity to prove he can play, it's clear he won't be close to 100 percent. If Walker is unable to play Anthony Fasano will likely get more snaps.
Hill suffered a high-ankle sprain in the Saints' season opener and was unable to play in Week 2. His status will be confirmed prior to kickoff.
