Tyler Eifert ($6000) Bengals @ Steelers – Eifert has had an excellent season and has been a guy that I have used most weeks as his price is still relatively cheap. With Gronk already done this week and Jimmy Graham not being used enough, Eifert steps up to be the #1 tight end on my list this week as the Steelers are currently 3rd worst at defending the tight end. Eifert already has 6 TD’s this season and I think he will add another to the list this week.

Jason Witten ($5500) Cowboys vs. Seahawks – With the Seahawks corners being so physical and aggressive on the outside the tight end is often left with a little space. Seattle is really only vulnerable at this position as a couple players the past few weeks have put up big numbers against this team. Witten had a nice solid game coming off the bye week and will continue to be a safety valve for veteran Matt Cassel. Being priced at only $5500, Witten is a safe play that still has enough upside to produce for tournaments.

Others I Like – Martellus Bennett ($5700), LaDarius Green ($5300)
