Start Scheffler this week . . .

Postby ampant » Wed Nov 26, 2008 3:31 am

Scheffler is playing @ NYJ. The jets have given up the second most points to fantasy TEs this year. Scheffler has big play potential if a TE ever did.

Unless you have Gonzo, Gates, or one of a handful of good TEs with soft matchups, I think Scheffler is a good big game TE gamble this week.

scheffler is kind of in my fantasy doghouse right now. the dude took forever to come back from his groin injury and hasnt done much of anything since he came back. i realize its only been a couple of games, but the dude was insane in the start of the year, and i kind of have high expectations for a guy had been solid previously in the same season. hopefully he can play a full game and the broncos will start utilizing him again...instead of using graham as their endzone target TE.

I seem to have a revolving door of TEs that score 0 points. One week it was Shockey, then it was Olsen, then it was Scheff. I was looking to move on this week to Jerramy Stevens against NO, having traded Shockey, and not trusting the Bears. So is Scheff really going to be back this week? I mean, the real Scheffler, that can put up at least 50 yds, and possibly a score? I hope so, because I really don't like Stevens, I just thought I couldn't do worse than a 0 again.

I'm hoping he is back. I sat Boss last week for him and this week it's the same dilemma.

Which Denver TE scores the most points this week?

Scheffler, Daniel Graham, or Nate Jackson?

Combined they have around 650 yards and 7 TDs, but Scheffler only accounts for 350/2 of that.

Stiffler is too much clap on, clap off for me.
Not enough on days to suffer through those crippling goose eggs.

Besides, I hear the Jets are hot.

I just read on Yahoo that Nate Jackson had a season ending injury, so that makes it down to two, increasing the odds of a Sheffler revival this week.

I'm tempted to throw him back in since I have a large lead already. Might as well just so I don't miss another 18 point week like I did in week 2.

Well . . . all I know is that I am starting him in both of my leagues, in one league over Cooley. That Nate Jackson news just seals the deal. He is a big play TE with the 2nd best possible matchup (fantasy defenses vs TEs). The Broncos aren't going to run it on the Jets. I think Scheff has 4-6 receptions with 40-80 yards and a 50% shot at a TD.

Last year towards the end of the year I rememember him catching everything in sight. Broncos don't have much of a running game, and the Jets are a pretty good rush D.

If the Broncs are going to win, it'll be through the air.

7 receptions for 90 yards. Pretty good game. He was targeted in the end-zone, but Cutler got picked off.

Started him in both leagues. B-)
