Tony Gonzalez, Chiefs - Moving Down
Drops another couple of spots this week with more poor play from the Chiefs. A change to Brodie Croyle as starting quarterback could drive Gonzo even lower but as one of the better tight ends to have played in the NFL, he can only drop so far. He is capable in every game, the question is if the pass gets to him.

Vernon Davis, 49ers - Moving Down
Another player moving down for the second week. Davis and QB Alex Smith just have not been connecting and Davis only has four catches for 27 yards so far. He's just too talented to expect that to continue but there's plenty of reasons to question how good his sophomore season can be with this offense that is struggling to pass.

Dallas Clark, Colts - Moving Up
Clark has to move up since he currenly has nine catches for 117 yards and a score but there's always the fear that in any given game he could lay an egg while Ben Utecht gets the passes. Great offense and used well so far, but the development of Addai and the rookie Anthony Gonzalez will only serve to eat into Clark's numbers. Good so far to be sure, but he'll more likely move down than up.

Ben Watson, NE - Moving Up
With two scores already, Watson is a hot property but at some point you can expect him to cool off with all those other weapons for Tom Brady. But in the 12th spot, he deserves it as much as any other tight end out there.

Eric Johnson, Saints - Moving Up
Only had three catches last week but is being used much more than tight ends in the past. Until the Saints get their passing game back into gear, Johnson should see at least moderate numbers each week.

Jeff King, Panthers - Moving Up
Without any decent secondary receiver for Steve Smith, the passes are being shared and King has been better than expected so far with nine catches for 74 yards. Not going to win you a fantasy game but a decent bye week filler so far.
