Titans TE Delanie Walker (groin, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 9. He’ll be a game-time decision. The Titans play late on Sunday, which complicates matters. Owners should get a Plan B ready. Last time Walker missed a game, Jace Amaro was the big winner with three catches for 59 yards on four targets. He hasn’t caught a pass since that game. Lance Kendricks also plays late and is a pretty good fallback option for Walker owners.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Per the San Diego Union-Tribune, Gates is “uncertain” for Week 3. The Chargers play late on Sunday, so owners should have a Plan B in place. Jacob Tamme, Jesse James, Trey Burton, Jack Doyle, Vance McDonald and Lance Kendricks all play at the same time as or later than Gates.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 1. Yesterday, Gronkowski was described as “no sure thing” to play by Ian Rapoport, though the Boston Herald was told by two sources that he is expected to play “barring an unexpected setback.” He did not travel with the team on Friday, but could travel on Saturday after another day of treatment, so we should know more tomorrow. Martellus Bennett would have top 5 upside if Gronk misses any time. If Gronk does make the trip, owners who want to wait until Sunday night could pivot to Jessie James, Vance McDonald or even Lance Kendricks, who all play on Monday night.

He’s been an important cog in the Rams’ offense in the past, particularly in the red zone. The Wisconsin product leads the team in touchdown receptions over the last three years. As is well known, a good receiving tight end can be a kind of security blanket for a young quarterback. The Rams will likely need Kendricks to fill that role this year.
The Rams cut Jared Cook, which leaves Kendricks atop the Rams' depth chart at tight end. He has posted a career 1.03 FP per target, so he should be streamable in 2016. In 18 career games with at least five targets, Kendricks has averaged 3.5 catches for 41 yards and 0.22 TD, which are fringe TE1 numbers.

Rams TE Jared Cook (back) did not practice Wednesday. Lance Kendricks would be a Sneaky Start if Cook can’t play.

49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) took limited practice reps Thursday. Davis may be able to play, but the Monday night kickoff makes for a dicey situation for fantasy owners. Jared Cook would be a quality Plan B. Even Lance Kendricks would work as a (uninspiring) fallback option.

At receiver, the Rams listed starters are Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin. Brian Quick is listed behind Britt but it's safe to expect that duo to be on the field together regularly with Austin in the slot. The Rams also list two starters at tight end with Jared Cook and Lance Kendricks on the top line.
Britt, Quick and Austin have all been available in the later rounds due to the uncertainty of how targets and snaps will be distributed. This is not going to be a great pass offense, but Shaun Hill is capable and at least one of these receivers will be fantasy relevant in 2014.
