Dustin Keller, JetsMoving Up
Keller moves up and is getting there in a hurry.  There is some risk involved here, but not a ton.  As Santonio Holmes comes back in a couple of weeks and Sanchez gets more comfortable as a starter look for the demand for Keller to diminish just a bit, but not enough to make most fantasy owners upset.  He’s the target of choice right now anywhere on the field, a must start and a threat to the top spot.

Aaron Hernandez, PatriotsMoving Up
The Pats are using two tight ends a lot, and the only bad thing about it for Hernandez is that he’s the yardage guy, not the touchdown guy.  A score or two is sure to happen at some point, which will just be a bonus, because right now he is Tom Brady’s favorite target and has all the skills to keep it going. 

Jason Witten, CowboysMoving Down
Besides the sprained MCL, Witten, though getting a fairly normal number of catches, isn’t being utilized as we’ve become accustomed to, hurting his fantasy value so far.  The Cowboys are passing deep a good bit more and there just seems to be something missing in the offensive chemistry.  All of this moves Witten down our list looking ahead. 

Ben Watson, BrownsMoving Up
Watson isn’t going to set the world on fire, but he’s getting consistent action for the Browns and with an offense that will struggle most of the season, he should keep it up.  His upside is limited, but he’ll grab a touchdown to go along with his fifty or so yards a week.  With bye weeks beginning, he could help fantasy owners in the right situation.

Brent Celek, EaglesMoving Down
While many are thrilled with the success of Michael Vick, Celek owners can’t be.  In fact, adding his wrist contusion suffered last week, his overall value is tanking, and quick.  He’s become almost an afterthought, not something owners were banking on when drafting him fairly high in most drafts.
