The Top: Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints
The Venn Diagram of sports fans and cooking fans has a very small sliver in the middle. So for those of you in the sports fan circle and not in the cooking fan circle, here's my favorite recipe. It's called "Top Tight End Stew."
First, you take an outrageously athletic tight end. There aren't that many available, so look closely.
Next, you add in a quarterback with the most passing attempts per game in the NFL.
Then, you make sure that tight end is receiving a high number of targets. Nothing less than 18 percent of his QB's throws will do.
Finally, you mix that all up, preferably in a warm-weather climate against a team with the 22nd-ranked time of possession in the NFL.
And there you have it: Top Tight End Stew. Don't worry, it stays good for Denver and Philadelphia the next two weeks, also.
The Surprise: Fred Davis, Washington Redskins
Pierre Garcon has 12 targets from Robert Griffin III this season. Josh Morgan has 20. Santana Moss has 23. Aldrick Robinson has 25. And none of them are in the Washington team lead.
Fred Davis has emerged as the go-to receiver for RGIII, having 30 passes thrown his way so far this season. Those 30 targets represent 18 percent of all of Griffin's throws, equal to what the top tight ends in the league have (including the aforementioned Graham). Davis has not had those looks converted into touchdowns, but he has into yards: His 312 receiving yards are 40 percent more than any other player on his team.
Remember how I said that RGIII has the highest projected game since the start of the 2010 season? Now, who is going to benefit most from Griffin throwing the ball? It has to be Davis. The Redskins receiving corps has more turnover than Capitol Hill, but Davis has been a constant so far this season.
The Lead Weight: Dennis Pitta, Baltimore Ravens
I still think he's a viable player to have on your fantasy team; I'm not jumping head first over the side of the ship. I'm just resting below deck for a while and letting other people steer.
And if you're going to continue steering, you should probably consider that the waters of Houston Texans Bay are some of the most difficult to navigate. Aaron Rodgers managed last week, but his starting tight end was collateral damage: Jermichael Finley finished with two catches for 12 yards on the day.
I don't see Pitta's day being much different than Finley's. Pitta has gotten 11 targets in the past three weeks combined, and he has not seen 20 percent of Flacco's throws come his way in a single game since Week 2.
