Marcedes Lewis, JaguarsMoving Up
While his inconsistency can be frustrating, there is no denying that, shy of Antonio Gates, no other tight end has been as productive from a fantasy scoring perspective as Lewis has been.  What’s a bit ironic is that it seems that his best fantasy production comes on weeks when he’s targeted the least, quite an interesting phenomenon.  He’s a must start moving forward. 

Rob Gronkowski, PatriotsMoving Up
His three touchdown performance last week probably won’t happen again this season, but it should be noted that his targets have taken a dramatic increase in the last two or three games, meaning Brady is looking for him more than just for a touchdown and means more opportunity for a rising star.

Greg Olsen, BearsMoving Up
Don’t get overly excited here, but Olsen’s now had a touchdown in back to back games.  His targets are high, but he just doesn’t catch many of them.  If he could hall in a couple more of those passes a game it might make a world of difference in his fantasy value, but at the moment he does take a slight turn north simply because he’s becoming an end zone target of Jay Cutler.

Chris Cooley, RedskinsMoving Down
Cooley moves even farther down the charts as he simply is doing next to nothing these days for fantasy owners unless they are in a PPR league, and then it still isn’t much.  His yardage has been about the same the last four games as it was his first four games, but his yards per catch has been cut in half over that same breakout, and his catch percentage has dropped as well.  Add in the fact that he hasn’t scored in five outings and his value is nil.
