The Fantasy Football Dark Spot: Tight End

Postby intense » Thu Aug 25, 2005 8:07 pm

I, like many people, wait til the very last round or 2 to grab a tight end... Today in my 2 drafts it's been Chris Cooley... who do you guys think are the best TE sleepers out there right now?

Seattle's Jeremy Stevens ...he could possibly breakout this season. Of course, we've been making those predictions the last 3 years.

Why wait? It's a dark horse spot that yeilds the same kinda pull through points per week that a great D line or Kicker can give - ten fold. I think it's a great spot that you should take early and pick up other backup positions off the wire in week 2 when the proven are unproven.

I don't think in a 12 man league people like people like Gonzalez, Gates, and Clark are gonna be there at the end...

I think Cooley and Schobel could be the dark sleepers this season.

I watched Jerramy Stevens the other night vs. the Cowboys and he couldn't catch the ball if it was placed directly in his hands.

Stevens sure looked good the other night..He may have moved up a few slots on my board...But no Mili? Is he hurt? That has to help his value. Stevens is what 6'7"? He could be a real steal late.

I think Cooley and Pollard could be sleepers too...

I have been able to land Wiggins real late in a lot of drafts too..

I would keep an eye on his injury though..Sounds like he may make it back for the start of the season, but nothing to the best of my knowledge has said that he is definitely going to be back in time.

Last I heard and saw on CBSsportsline tonight said he might make it to play in a preseason game.

I reached for Gonzo in the early 4th round last year, figuring his numbers would be head and shoulders above the competition. Which strategy was wasted when I got Gates in the 13th.

I'm gonna sit back and wait this year. If the Wiggins's and LJ's of the world don't slide down, I'll seek out:
H Miller
B Troupe
C Cooley
J Putzier
or
J Stevens
