Jordan Cameron had two receptions for 13 yards in the loss to the Jets on Sunday.
Cameron has been a disappointment this season. What is even more concerning about this outing is that even though Ryan Tannehill dropped back to pass 58 times, he only targeted Cameron a mere three times. He just doesn't seem to have the trust of Tannehill.
Cameron Brate secured five of his six targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-12 loss to the Colts.
The second-year pro has been coming on for several weeks, and Sunday's game could officially be considered his coming out party as a pro. Brate posted career-highs in receptions and yards, and in a testament to the increasing level of trust Jameis Winston is developing in him, he received a career-best six targets as well. Brate now has secured eight of 10 targets for 100 yards and two touchdowns over the last two games. With Austin Seferian-Jenkins' shoulder injury potentially season-ending at this point, Brate may continue to receive ample opportunity to further develop.
Jimmy Graham (knee) will need surgery to repair his patellar tendon, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Graham will be out for the rest of the season. The tight end presumably tore his patellar tendon, which means he's no lock to be ready for training camp next year. Luke Willson will take over as the Seahawks' top tight end, with Cooper Helfet serving as the No. 2. The Seattle wide receivers may also see a few more targets due to Graham's absence.
Jared Cook caught four passes off of six targets for 58 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.
The 58 yards were Cook's most since Week 1. He ranks second on the team in targets, catches and receiving yards. Among fellow tight ends, Cook ranks 20th in the league in catches and 16th in receiving yardage, making him a solid-but-not-great backup tight end. The fact that he remains scoreless through this point of the season prevents him from being a legitimate fantasy starter.
Garrett Celek was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain after Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.
If Celek misses time beyond Week 12, which seems likely, there could be a few more targets available for top tight end Vance McDonald, who caught six passes for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's game. No. 3 tight end Blake Bell would also be in line for a bigger role, after catching three passes for 67 yards Sunday afternoon.
Jimmy Graham , who suffered a right knee injury during the fourth quarter, will not return to Sunday's game against the Steelers, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
The injury appeared serious, with Graham staying down on the field for a few minutes and then leaving with an air cast over his right leg. Owners will want to wait for further updates before taking action, but there is some chance Graham won't play again this season, in which case Luke Willson would take over as Seattle's top tight end.
Jordan Reed caught eight passes off of nine targets for 98 yards in Sunday's win over the Giants.
The 98 receiving yards represented a season-high for Reed. Since returning to the lineup in Week 8, Reed has led Washington in receptions in three of five games and his five touchdowns during the span are more than any other Washington receiver this season. Reed appears to have developed a strong rapport with Kirk Cousins, one that has not been diminished by the return of DeSean Jackson. In fact, fantasy owners can expect Jackson's ability to stretch defenses vertically to benefit Reed as he does most of his damage on underneath plays.
Owen Daniels (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Daniels was limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday, but then returned to full participation Friday, earning the probable designation on Denver's final injury report. He logged 56 snaps in a Week 11 win over the Bears, but with Vernon Davis now in the mix at tight end, Daniels isn't a good bet for more than handful of targets in any given game.
Jimmy Graham was carted off the field in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Steelers due to a right leg injury, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.
Graham went down awkwardly in the right corner of the end zone, and the Seattle Seahawks ' training and medical staffs examined his right knee before encasing the region in an air cast, according to Danny O'Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle. Considering the potentially serious nature of the injury, we may have seen the last of Graham this season, but the team will do their due diligence in determining the true extent. In his place, the Seahawks will turn to Luke Willson and Cooper Helfet at tight end.
Heath Miller was forced out of Sunday's game against the Seahawks with a rib injury.
Prior to his exit, Miller caught five passes for 45 yards, but he's done for the day and will thus target a return to action next Sunday against the Colts.
