TE Notes: The Vikings have given up more fantasy points to tight ends than any team, so Heath Miller's career year should continue this week. … Second on the worst teams against tight ends list is Philadelphia. All the fears that Chris Cooley would be stuck as a blocker last week were overblown. He performed his usual role once the coaching staff had a week to prepare for life without Chris Samuels. … The Patriots are one of the best teams preventing yards to tight ends because of the play of Brandon Merriweather and Brandon McGowan. This will be a tough matchup for Kellen Winslow. … It's fair to have lost patience with Dustin Keller by now, especially with so many excellent options at tight end. Greg Olsen and Zach Miller are showing expected signs of life, for instance, and still have trouble cracking the top ten.
