Chandler has been a TE2/3 option most of the season. That could change this coming week with Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin hampered by injuries. If Woods and Goodwin do not go (or are limited) in Week 10, Stevie Johnson and the running back tandem of Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller are the only other real passing options for Jeff Tuel or E.J. Manuel if he returns. I think Chandler will see more targets this week vs. Pittsburgh and could produce, despite the Pittsburgh defense allowing the 13th fewest fantasy points to TEs.

Zach Miller is another tight end who has fallen off the fantasy radar. He is averaging around 25 yards per game and has only found the end zone three times this season. However, Miller is the third passing option for Russell Wilson behind Doug Baldwin and Golden Tate, making him somewhat viable. This week he faces an Atlanta team that is struggling and gives up the 12th most fantasy points to tight ends. Miller could be a sneaky TE play this week if you are in a bind and in a deep league.

The Miami defense is ranked fourth against wideouts and fifth against QBs this season and it is time that Mike Glennon was brought back to earth. Miami will be looking to limit Mike James in the ground game and cover Vincent Jackson and Tim Wright in the air attack. Look for Tampa Bay players like Brian Leonard and Tiquan Underwood to get more of Mike Glennon's attention, but all-in-all I suspect we will see Tampa Bay's offense kept under wraps this week.
