You've got to take a look at Boss this week - he's been consistently involved lately and PHI is a giver v TE's (4th worst D overall v the position)

Seconded. He's a consistent target with steady yards and high odds for a TD each week as seen recently. With Burress down he probably is looked at a little more often. Since the Giants tend to mix their offensive plays up, Boss is an unsexy yet solid grab for those in need of a TE.

However, I'm hoping the Schaub N Daniels show returns this week...

Same here... My second choice is Zack Miller.


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.

Can I ask why? I'm waivering between the two and Scheffler at the moment.

Yeah, I picked up Scheffler over Miller this week. I think Miller has an easier schedule than Scheff come playoff time. With that being said, I'm probably going to drop Scheffler for Carlson next week because Carlson has an even better playoff schedule! ;-)

My ability to pick up a TE ended when the game started so I'm definitely rolling with Carlson. The only other TEs worthy of pickup were Fasano, Daniel Graham, and Vernon Davis who showed last week exactly why I wouldn't trust this him during the playoffs. Of course, Antonio Gates pulled a Vernon Davis last week too.

Hmmm, now that Hasselbeck is doubtful are people still willing to roll with Carlson and Seneca Wallace's arm?

I don't really have a choice in the matter, but had I known this was going to happen I probably would have went in another direction... :-[
