am i the only one here who really believes he is going to breakout and be a formidable sleeper? i know hes not even #1 on the depth chart but for some reason i think he sees the field more than reggie kelly. i see kelly as their main TE for blocking purposes but Utecht will be the one running routes and getting open in the middle while TJ and OC get lots of attention.

im starting him this week and most are expecting goose egg! should i go Dustin Keller or something?

Im high on Utecht as well. Palmer's been looking for safety valves for years now, and he may have found one in Utech, and to some extent Perry as well. I think he'll play a prominent role in the passing game this season.

In a bye week situation I could see someone wanting to use Utecht, but otherwise I'm not high on him this year.

He was option 4 behind Harrison/Wayne/Clark in Indy, and he will be option 4 behind Ocho/Housh/Henry (once Henry returns, Utecht has his chance in these next 4 weeks to do something). Peyton does spread the ball a good amount, especially in the endzone, I'm not positive if Palmer spreads it more or not...I'm playing the wait-and-see approach with Utecht but I'm content leaving him on the free agent list for now.

If he can ever stay healthy. in indy and as a gopher he was always hurt. dude's made of glass. Best of luck to him :-) A colts fan on this board used to call him "injury timeout" ... funny stuff. He's also very well known for fumbling and dropping passes.


edit:
