TE Rankings

Here's the last of the rankings for Week 1 - I will try to do a few news updates on the blog before gametime tomorrow morning and kickoff. A few guys (like Jamal Lewis) are even late game time decisions and I will try to keep track of that for you guys as well.

Here are the tight ends for Week 1.
  1. Jason Witten, Cowboys at Browns
  2. Kellen Winslow, Browns vs. Cowboys
  3. Antonio Gates, Chargers vs. Panthers
  4. Dallas Clark, Colts vs. Bears
  5. Tony Gonzalez, Chiefs at Patriots
  6. L.J. Smith, Eagles vs. Rams
  7. Jeremy Shockey, Saints vs. Buccaneers
  8. Owen Daniels, Texans at Steelers
  9. Vernon Davis, 49ers vs. Cardinals
  10. Zach Miller, Raiders vs. Broncos
  11. Randy McMichael, Rams at Eagles
  12. Heath Miller, Steelers vs. Texans
  13. Todd Heap, Ravens vs. Bengals
  14. Alge Crumpler, Titans vs. Jaguars
  15. Tony Scheffler, Broncos at Raiders
  16. Donald Lee, Packers vs. Vikings
  17. Greg Olsen, Bears at Colts
  18. Marcedes Lewis, Jaguars at Titans
  19. Alex Smith, Buccaneers at Saints
  20. Ben Utecht, Bengals at Ravens
  21. Dustin Keller, Jets at Dolphins
  22. John Carlson, Seahawks at Bills
  23. Desmond Clark, Bears at Colts
  24. Chris Baker, Jets at Dolphins
  25. Robert Royal, Bills vs. Seahawks
I think people are underestimating Gates this weekend and he's a good start - despite coming off an injury, he'll be ready to go and play well. But Witten is the top start - with a lack of receivers, the Cowboys will look to him a lot this weekend. I think both Jets rookie TE Dustin Keller and Seahawks rookie TE john Carlson could do much better than I have them ranked but in week 1, I won't bet my week on them when we don't know what will really happen in the game plan. But keep them on your radar.

News and notes later tonight (maybe late night for Easterners) and tomorrow morning.
