Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE
1. Scott Chandler, Buffalo Bills
The Bills didn't play in Week 8, so many people either dropped Chandler or completely forgot about him heading into Week 9.
His matchup this week against the Houston Texans isn't ideal, but if Houston succeeds at shutting down Stevie Johnson, Ryan Fitzpatrick could be looking Chandler's way quite often during this game. If you need a long-term answer at tight end this week, Chandler is your man.
2. Dustin Keller, New York Jets
The Jets don't play this week, so don't grab Keller off the waiver wire if you need production this weekend. However, if you are planning for the future, Keller needs to be on your radar this week.
He's been extremely solid since he has come back from his injury, including back-to-back games where he recorded seven receptions. He'll continue to be a top target for Mark Sanchez, and while that may not sound like a good thing, he should continue to put up solid numbers for the remainder of the season.
3. Brandon Myers, Oakland Raiders
The only thing holding Myers back from being a consistent starter at tight end in fantasy football is touchdown receptions. He still hasn't found the end zone this season, which is a little concerning for owners.
However, the Raiders offense has looked rather good in the past few weeks, and it is only a matter of time before Myers finds pay dirt this season. Once he does that, he'll be a legitimate starting candidate every single week.
4. Dwayne Allen, Indianapolis Colts
Teammate Coby Fleener got all the attention heading into the season, but Allen is actually seeing more playing time. His versatility allows him to play a number of positions, and the Colts are taking full advantage of that.
As Allen continues to develop, he'll only become a more dangerous receiving option for Andrew Luck. If you have the space on your roster, pick him up now and watch him develop into a quality starter by the time the playoffs roll around.
5. Dennis Pitta, Baltimore Ravens
After a great start to the season, it seems that Pitta has become a forgotten man in fantasy football. A matchup against the Cleveland Browns this week could change that.
If the Ravens offense can finally get things going, Pitta could be in for a monster week.
