TE Notes: Brent Celek is more athletic than I anticipated and has great hands. He's made a variety of tough catches and can break big plays. … Kellen Winslow can't separate from defenders, even when he's matched up against guys like Chris Gocong, but it doesn't matter. He is making insane grabs with defenders draped all over him. And with Josh Johnson unable to audible when blitzes are coming, and tons of free rushers coming at Johnson, Winslow will be the hot receiver for Johnson a lot. Winslow has benefited from Johnson's ascension to the lineup despite my expectations.

Todd Heap is quietly on pace for 675 yards and six scores. He's caught at least four passes in four of five games this year and is a solid PPR option. He's not going to stretch the field like he used to, but eight touchdowns this year is a possibility. … Heath Miller is another tight end not stretching the field, but could shatter his personal bests for yards and receptions this year. He's turned into another solid TE1, especially this week against Cleveland. … After Mark Sanchez talked up trying to get Dustin Keller involved, we'd stick with him for one more week, especially against an injury-plagued Buffalo linebacker unit.
