After touching base with the quarterbacks , running backs , and wide receivers for this week, we end Week 11's rankings with the tight ends:

1. Dallas Clark @ BAL
2. Antonio Gates @ DEN
3. Tony Gonzalez @ NYG
4. Vernon Davis    @ GB   
5. Brent Celek @ CHI
6. Kellen Winslow vs. NO
7. Jason Witten    vs. WAS
8. Greg Olsen vs. PHI
9. John Carlson @ MN
10. Jeremy Shockey @ TB
11. Visanthe Shiancoe vs. SEA
12. Heath Miller    @ KC
13. Dustin Keller @ NE
14. Kevin Boss vs. ATL (Sit )
15. Zach Miller vs. CIN
17. Fred Davis @ DAL
18. James Casey vs. TEN
19. Brandon Pettigrew vs. CLE
20. Marcedes Lewis vs. BUF

Notes: Tony Gonzalez should be a bit more active than usual, and regardless of the Giants defensive history over the past few years, they simply aren't an elite unit right now. He gets the nod over Vernon Davis by a hair due to Green Bay's ability to stop tight ends this year.

John Carlson and Visanthe Shiancoe will be playing in the same game, and both could have solid days. Carlson caught his first touchdown last week in what seems like forever, and he's facing a Minnesota defense that gives up points to tight ends. Seattle, on the other hand, has given up an average of seven catches per game to tight ends through their last three games.

James Casey is our darkhorse at tight end this week, as he returns from minor knee surgery to attempt to take over for Owen Daniels. He won't be starting, but head coach Gary Kubiak voiced his pleasure with Casey, and said he'll be a big part of the offense going forward. Look for him to do some damage as Tennessee concentrates on Andre Johnson.
