Antonio Gates is this week’s biggest faller, down seven spots from the top ranking he has held throughout the 2010 season. Gates is certainly the most productive fantasy tight end in the league, but if he can’t get on the field, he simply can’t help fantasy owners. Certainly he will be on the rise again next week if he is able to play, but we haven’t seen any proof that he will be ready yet.

Oakland Raiders tight end Zach Miller is finally showing signs of life again after a five week streak of zero fantasy points. His four catches for 68 yards were the type of production he had at the beginning of the year when he looked like he would be one of the better fantasy tight ends. Jason Campbell should continue to look his way as long as he remains healthy.

Hey, Owen Daniels, welcome back to fantasy relevance! The Houston Texans tight end who was one of 2009’s biggest fantasy studs before his injury has had a tough road back to health, but we finally got a sign that he might be ready to return to fantasy lineups last week when he caught a season best five passes for 91 yards.

He still hasn’t scored a touchdown this season, but hey—at this point, catching any passes is a good sign from Daniels!
