No, it is not a new porn flick. I just drafted in a large PPR league, 96 teams over 8 drafts and the TEs flew off the board. I have always been one of those guys to wait on a TE and am wondering if I am still right or have I missed the changing of the guard. Last year to me has the writing of being an anomaly or it is the start of a new generation.
Based on PPR scoring
2005 TEs over 190 points - 4, over 160 points 7
2006 TEs over 190 points - 3, over 160 points 7
2007 TEs over 190 points - 5, over 160 points 6
2008 TEs over 190 points - 3, over 160 points 6
2009 TEs over 190 points - 8, over 160 points 11
There has been no steady increase, it is (so far) just 1 big year. Will TEs continue to be a factor a HUGE factor? Projections are roughly for 7 over 190 and 11 over 160 for 2010 taking a quick look at a couple sites.
