The versatile Walker isn't necessarily a weekly fantasy play at the moment, but he's getting closer to flex appeal. However, he's not doing his surname a good service; he was seen in a walking boot on his left foot. More details to come.
Rudolph's poor production has been a result of poor offensive design and Christian Ponder's limited downfield abilities. The tight end still has PPR benefits for his owners, even if his numbers aren't outstanding. We're not certain they'll improve drastically, if at all, with Matt Cassel taking snaps. Dropping him in many leagues is a bit rash, but finding a storable alternative is not.
WAIVER WIRE: Clay has six targets in each of his first three games and has embraced the role meant for Injured Reserve resident Dustin Keller. The Miami Dolphins should continue calling Clay's name, making him a borderline TE1 in most weeks.
The presence of both Paulsen and Reed on this list says that it'll be tough to peg which Washington Redskins tight end will be the better play each week. Fred Davis is still hanging around, too.
The athletic rookie Reed has the biggest ceiling, but Paulsen continues to linger, maybe because Robert Griffin III needs more protection as he works his way back to 100 percent health.
