Dallas Clark has 29 targets on the year, ranking ninth among all tight ends. Clark's connection with Jim Caldwell and the erratic performance of wideouts not named Torrey Smith should continue to prevent Ed Dickson from becoming a bigger contributor.

With injuries to Stephen Hill (concussion) and Santonio Holmes (hamstring) not expected to play in Week 5, Kellen Winslow again could be a frequent find for New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith.

Heath Miller has 12 targets in his first two weeks back on the field. Think Ben Roethlisberger and this passing offense missed him?

WAIVER WIRE: With Dwayne Allen on Injured Reserve, Coby Fleener gets to enjoy undivided attention as the primary tight end in what looks like a surging offense. He went 5-77-1 this past Sunday.

Brandon Pettigrew caught a lot of underneath routes, only gaining 54 yards on his seven grabs. Ryan Broyles should become more involved in the Detroit Lions' offense as he gets his footing. Detroit also likes to go to Joseph Fauria in the red zone, which limits Pettigrew's upside.
