Now on to the ball spiking, goal post dunking Tight-Ends, and boy has this been a tough position so far this season. Every week we seem to have a new player that leads all other Tight-Ends in scoring, making it seemingly impossible to make a good rankings list. However, Jimmy Graham seems to rise to the top of the pile week after week, and it seems as though Drew Brees has finally found his feet and is throwing much more consistently. Look for Graham to score at least 15 points in standard scoring leagues this week against a debilitated 49ers defense. Coming in at a shaky 2nd on our totem-pole, we have the touchdown dependent Julius Thomas. So good the first 3 weeks, his weekly point total relies heavily on Peyton throwing to him in the Endzone. Still, expect Manning to hit his favourite Redzone target at least once for touchdown. Rounding out the top 3 you have Martellus Bennett, who should see plenty of targets in a match-up with the Packers that the Bears will most likely see themselves playing catch-up all game long. The player most likely to outproduce his initial rank is Delanie Walker. We can't really know what to expect in Tennessee these days, with the rookie Mettenburger under centre, Walker's targets could go either way. Walker might be used as Mettenburger's security blanket, soaking up 10+ targets in the flats, or Mettenburger could be entirely useless and throw three interceptions. Until we see more consistency, Walker will stay down at the bottom rungs of the ladder with possible high upside.
