well, this week I run into bye week trouble, my Seattle defense isn't palying this week, and I didn't have a backup. I picked up the Denver D last night at the expense of my tight end, Dallas Clark. I didn't want to cut anyone else, and I figured my best bet was to go with no tight end this week (after all, between Stevens the first two weeks and Clark last week, I have a grand total of 1 point from my TE position this SEASON).
Is there anyone here you would cut for a Tight End (like Dallas Clark, Christian Fauria, or Mikael Rhicks)
Kerry Collins (bye)
Marshall Faulk (injured)
Koren Robinson (bye)
Jimmy Smith (suspended)
The only two I see somewhat worth cutting are Kevin Johnson and Ashley Lelie, but even these two guys would be tough to let go. Everyone else you must hang onto. Personally, I would go with no TE since it's usually a crapshoot as to who will get a TD this week or the next. But if you feel you really want a TE then get Fauria. Brady seems to like him.
I would say I would try and get a TE. I hate leaving a starting roster spot open. Yes with the TE they could get you zero points, but then again they could have a good game and pull out a TD or 2. I would hate to lose by a point knowing that I didn't fill the roster spot. The only option I see you having is with the Seattle D or Amos. Personally I would hang onto Amos. RB's are to valueable in FF. So I would try and trade off Seattle for a TE. Any defense can score you decent points. Denver should serve you well for the rest of the season.
If you could get a Gonzo or Shockey for Amos I would think about a trade like that. With Lewis, Taylor and Faulk/Gordan as your backs you could spare Amos, but only for a top TE.
Amos actually probably would be the better guy, but I picked Lelie b/c he's only had one good game against a sorry Raiders D. Compared to the other guys you've got, he's not as solid. But if he'd leave a hole then yeah, gotta hang onto him.
I'd go with no TE; I did it last week and the guy I would have had scored 1 point. It's really hard to pluck a TE off the wire and have him do well, most of the ones who actually may score are already taken. The average top 10 fantasy TE scores about 3 points a game using Yahoo's scoring, so it's not worth it if you're cutting a good player to MAYBE score a couple points.
