Go With No TE this Week???

I'd ride it out a week with no TE. I would think anyone you drop would be picked up immediately. Amos, KJ and Lelie are the glaring question marks, but who knows what's going on with the bus....if Amos doesn't lose his carries it would certainly be a waste to drop him for a FA TE, KJ finally put up some numbers--same for Lelie. I'm kind of in the same boat- I have KRob and Ricky Williams sitting this week, and it's ugly. Worst case scenario, you might need to take a loss to keep your core intact. One kind of shady thing you might think about, if your league allows it-drop, say Amos right before game time, then try to pick him right back up (depending on your WW priority). Not a way to make a lot of friends, but maybe an option.

Your first thought is generally the right one.
That's what I would do.

I don't know why everyone is so high on Lelie this year.

A rookie WR excluding Randy Moss takes 3 years to develop.

Unless Rod Smith get suspended for sucker punching the ref this weekend Lelie is not worth starting.

I mean come on , Plummer ?

I would drop Seattle Def on Friday Night or however long it takes for them to clear waivers by Sunday and then pick Sea back-up after the TE starts his game. If someone grabs Sea, Denver isn't much of a step back. But hopefully that won't happen, but its not like you are doing this with Tampa's D.

I am definitely doing more than OK in my fantasy match this weekened wihtout a tight end


My team is the same as the one I originially posted, but I dropped the Denver D for Indy's D. I am probably going to have the most points in the league this week.

Good for you. I know it sucks having an empty slot, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.....
