Updated Fantasy Football Rankings at Week 10: Top 30 TEs for the Rest of 2010

Indianapolis Colts tight end Jacob Tamme continues his meteoric rise up the fantasy rankings, up all the way to third among tight ends for the remainder of the year. Tamme has filled in more than admirably for Dallas Clark and had his second big week in a row, catching 11 passes for a team-high 108 yards and a touchdown. With injuries to both of the two players ahead of him, if Tamme continues at this pace, he may even find himself as the top ranked fantasy tight end as early as next week.

New England Patriots rookie tight end Aaron Hernandez has been a surprisingly consistent fantasy player this season, but finally snapped his end zone curse by catching not just one, but the first two touchdowns of his NFL career in Week 9.

Though the Patriots were blown out by the Browns in the game, it’s certainly worth considering that Hernandez has taken over as the team’s top red zone target and may actually be the best fantasy receiver on this team for the rest of the season. He moves up another spot this week to fifth among tight ends.

After huge performances on Weeks 8 and 9, Jason Witten fell back to being a mediocre tight end last week against the Packers. Though he did still have a decent 44 yards receiving, he was targeted just four times on the day during a game when the Cowboys were blown out and Jon Kitna passed the ball 30 times.

With games against excellent pass-rush teams like the Giants, Eagles (twice), Colts and Redskins still on the schedule, expect to see Witten back on his blocking role a lot more in the upcoming weeks as the Cowboys try to prevent losing Jon Kitna like they did Tony Romo.
