Week 7 Bye Teams: Buffalo, Cincinnati, New England, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco
The tight end position, so long dominated by guys like Antonio Gates, Dallas Clark and Jason Witten, has seen some fresh blood in the 2011 season. None more spectacular than the rise of Jimmy Graham in New Orleans. We check in on him and the other tight ends for Week 7.
Our partner, numberfire.com, has provided us with projections for 15 top-rated tight ends in Week 7. They determine their projections by feeding the stats and matchups into the computer, and the computer responds with its best estimate.
These projections are live and may change before Sunday's action. Come back over the next few days until game time to see where your players stand.
The above-mentioned Graham looks like a sure bet this weekend, along with Jermichael Finley and Jason Witten. In Houston, Owen Daniels is getting some love this week as is Detroit's Brandon Pettigrew.
If you're looking for an emergency fill-in for this week, consider Ed Dickson, Jared Cook or Ben Watson.
* Fantay Points Projections are based on the Yahoo! and ESPN default scoring settings. Quarterbacks are scored with 1 point for every 25 passing yards, and 4 points for every touchdown. For running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, they are scored with 1 point for every 10 total yards, and 6 points for every touchdown. This is a non-PPR projection.
Injured players appear on the list, this is their projection IF they play.
