Tight end pickups down the stretch?

Postby The Great Gambini » Mon Dec 01, 2008 11:45 pm

This is a question I have and I'm sure others have too...Daniels has been brutal and Winslow is out. A lot of owners will be scrambling for tight ends -- who are you looking at among the likes of:

Shockey, Schiancoe, Bennett, Donald Lee, Marcedes Lewis, etc.

I'd like to get some input as well since it looks like Winslow is done. I was looking at Shockey or Scheffler personally, but Scheff would make three Broncos on my team.

I know he is not on the list and it may be a little too late, but I recently picked up Keller. He has been getting alot of looks as of late, and may even score here and there.

I think he will be nice down the stretch as Jets WR have been slightly banged up alot.

Again, you probably know all this... just my $0.02

Well, being that Schaub is likely coming back next week I would think it would be wise to start Daniels again. He was quite productive with Schaub and not at all with Rosenfels. Otherwise in the league I have Winslow I fully expect to use John Carlson as he's been getting more and more looks with Hasselbeck finally shaking some of the rust off but neither Deion Branch or Bobby Engram creating any separation right now. He's the only guy getting good, consistent yardage on that team and he's got a couple of good matchups for a TE coming up.

I am trying to grab John Carlson off the WW in my main league with Winslow out. Other than him it is slim pickings: Vernon Davis, for one example, has been getting some love from Shaun Hill, but one catch a game is not going to always cut it if he does not score on that catch.

I'm going after Carlson as well. He had a big week this past Sunday and I'm hoping he builds on that.

This guy could be a real stud in a couple years after SEA gets their act together.

Dustin Keller if he's still available. This guy's been on fire the last few weeks and appears to have become Favre's go to guy.

I'd say Miller is the #1 TE target available in free agency in many leagues. I'd grab him before I'd target Carlson.
