Vernon Davis, 49ersMoving Down
Not a big drop, but he’s not the top guy anymore.  With a bum ankle and the rise of Zack Miller and Marcedes Lewis, he’s got some competition.  Look for him to struggle just a bit after the bye week, and the quarterback situation isn’t helping him at all, but he still is one of the top five tight ends, just not the top one.

Jason Witten, CowboysMoving Up
For all the bad happening in Dallas, Witten’s rise has been a welcome thing the last couple of weeks.  With Jon Kitna as quarterback the tight end has started getting the attention we’re used to seeing and he’s produced accordingly.  Look for it to continue as the gig is Kitna’s for a while.

Marcedes Lewis, JaguarsMoving Up
Lewis just keeps impressing.  He’s become, literally, a touchdown machine in Jacksonville.  On pace for 14, the only knock is the consistency.  Instead of one every week or so, he likes to bunch them up in twos, which is great when he gets them, but disappointing when he doesn’t.  However, he’s a must start and is continuing his rise to the top.

Jacob Tamme, ColtsMoving Up
As we expected, Manning didn’t miss a beat in working Tamme into his game plan.  While he won’t be Dallas Clark it would appear he’ll be a suitable substitute, and as long as he’s getting the touchdowns each week, fantasy owners will take him.  His potential ticks up for the remainder of the season.

Tony Scheffler, LionsMoving Down
For the first few weeks Scheffler and Pettigrew were putting up the same stats, but separation has started to happen with Pettigrew becoming the go to guy.  Look for this to continue as the maturity process continues with the young guys on the offense, which makes Scheffler’s future value drop significantly, and could make him almost irrelevant within another couple weeks.
