Week one saw an insane amount of point production from the tight end position (12 scored 15+ points, 5 scored 30+ points). This week I moved Heath Miller into my Top-10, climbing nine spots from the previous week. Miller was targeted 11 times and hauled in eight passes that came his way. He is a reliable check-down option for Big Ben and you have to love the amount of looks he gets in this high octane offense. Although he didn't find the end zone, four of Miller's targets came from within the Patriot's 10-yard line. Soon one of those will connect for Miller and I see it happening against the 49ers.

If I am a Larry Donnell owner, I'm benching him. This week he barely sneaks into my Top-20 after having him ranked 12th for week one. Against Dallas, he split time with backup tight end Daniel Fells and only managed to see five targets. His matchup against the Falcons is extremely favorable, but his situation is not. Donnell is far down the pecking order when it comes to who Eli Manning looks for. Don't expect much production, look elsewhere.

Another guy that falls down the list is Owen Daniels. I ranked him 10th in week one, but now he falls 11 spots to number 21 on my list. Daniels was on the field for the majority of Denver's snaps, but amounted to nothing (two receptions for five yards). Daniels is not going to be the offensive machine Julius Thomas was, he is a role player. His role against the Ravens was to protect Manning, and against a really strong Chiefs defense that's not changing.
