The Top: Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots
Another week, another instance of Gronkowski topping the charts. This should be a surprise to nobody. In fact, I was thinking of placing Gronk at No. 7 just to see if anyone would notice, but I ultimately can't argue with the math.
The math is clearly in Gronkowski's favor, especially after his previous two games of 19 and 26 FP. Even after his bye week, his 95 FP in a standard league still outpace every other tight end by over 20.
And here's the amazing part: He's only third on the Patriots in targets. He's just good at converting what opportunities he does get with a 67 percent catch rate near the top of all tight ends.
The Surprise: Brandon Myers, Oakland Raiders
I've been singing his praises for a while now, mostly because of the lack of other Oakland targets as well as his sky-high catch rate.
So far this season, Myers has been the second-most-targeted player (50) on the entire Oakland squad, only 10 targets behind Denarius Moore for first. Meanwhile, supposed No. 2 receiver Rod Streater languishes behind with only 40 looks. And that's only gone up in recent weeks; his 13 in Week 9 against Tampa Bay led the team.
But perhaps more importantly, Myers has been efficient. His 78 percent catch rate leads all non-running backs and smokes, even Gronkowski, by over 10 percent. It's allowed Myers to have 39 receptions on the season, most on the Raiders and fourth-most among all tight ends.
Last week, the touchdown total finally caught up to his receiving prowess. There's no reason to see that sliding back down now.
The Lead Weight: Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings
Talented young tight end facing a weaker defense, and Percy Harvin may or may not play in this game. What could go wrong for Rudolph owners?
A lot, actually. Rudolph has seen absolutely no looks from Ponder these past two weeks, with only two targets in each of the past two Vikings games. And although the offense as a whole is struggling, Rudolph seems to be getting the worst of the storm: Those four combined targets were only seven percent of Ponder's total looks over the past two weeks.
With a grand total of exactly one fantasy point over the past three weeks, most owners are starting to see the trend that numberFire has seen developing for a while. Don't expect a bounce-back week from Rudolph here.
