Davis has been quiet the past two games, but has the ability to break out against the Rams.
.

Allen is averaging 65.5 yards the past two games. He should continue to see extra looks with Fleener out. Allen faces Jacksonville this week.

Here’s my Week 10 tight end rankings. Keep in mind that the Green Bay, Oakland, New Orleans, and San Diego are on bye.

.
1. Jacob Tamme vs. Cincinnati
2. Jason Witten @ New York Giants
3. Vernon Davis vs. St. Louis
4. Tony Gonzalez vs. Baltimore
5. Dustin Keller @ Cleveland
6. Aaron Hernandez @ Pittsburgh
7. Kellen Winslow vs. Carolina
8. Todd Heap vs. Atlanta
9. Marcedes Lewis vs. Houston
10. Brandon Pettigrew @ Buffalo
11. Chris Cooley vs. Philadelphia
12. Visanthe Shiancoe @ Chicago
13. Heath Miller vs. New England
14. Greg Olsen vs. Minnesota
15. Tony Moeaki @ Denver
.
.

Inside the numbers:

  • Color me a believer in Jacob Tamme. Peyton Manning is using him the same way he used Dallas Clark. Scary.
  • Jason Witten’s hot streak ended, but I have to imagine the whole team will give a better effort for new coach Jason Garrett.
  • Vernon Davis should come out of the bye refreshed and ready to torch the Rams.
  • Now that Aaron Hernandez had a taste of the end zone, I look for him to make a return trip against the Steelers.
  • Todd Heap (vs. Atlanta) and Marcedes Lewis (vs. Houston) should take advantage of poor pass defenses making the borderline starters TE1s this week.
