Tight ends

Week 13 utilizations
Rk Player Tm Wk13 Notes
1 Rob Gronkowski NE 12 Gronk being Gronk
2 Charles Clay MIA 11 35 targets in last 4 weeks 2nd for position
3 Garrett Graham HOU 11 36 targets 1st among TEs
4 Jimmy Graham NO 9 SEA contained him on MNF despite TD.
5 Heath Miller PIT 9 33 tied for 3rd
6 Antonio Gates SD 9 Small rebound hindered by Ladarius Green's emergence
7 Tony Gonzalez ATL 7 More positive Roddy White fallout
8 Greg Olsen CAR 7 24 last 3 weeks
9 Jordan Cameron CLE 7 Concussed QB shuffle would hurt Cameron if Jason Campbell replaces Brandon Weeden

WW: Green has 16 looks in the last three contests and has taken advantage of the absence of Eddie Royal (toe, chest), but the San Diego Chargers would probably feature Green anyway even if the slot man were healthy. Green at times resembles a vintage Gates, and with the vet sporting little in the way of breakaway speed these days, Green should continue working into Philip Rivers' good graces.

WW: Coming out of the bye, Zach Ertz and Brent Celek were bigger parts of the game plan Sunday. They each hauled in six targets as the Philadelphia Eagles looked to expose the Arizona Cardinals' spotty defense against the position. The remaining schedule is somewhat attractive, and though these two often cannibalize their targets

WW: Following his six looks Sunday night (five receptions), Brandon Myers has 15 over his last trio of outings and a score in each of his last two. His 11 catches in that time reflect his time with the Oakland Raiders last year, when he posted one of the best catch percentages in the NFL. Eli Manning has been ineffective most of the season, and maybe re-incorporating Myers will help him regain some comfort.
