Greg Olsen or Lance Kendricks????? WHIR

Postby TheSQUID » Thu Sep 08, 2011 6:23 pm

I'm not so sure about Olsen, he will be Newton's safety blanket, but then there's also Shockey.

Kendricks had a monster pre-season but is listed as TE2 on the depth chart behind Billy Bajema? But I've ready a few people are starting him.

Which TE will produce this most points? I'm in a non-PPR 10 team standard yahoo league. Thanks

I go back and forth on both. But in the end, I like Kendricks. Better QB. Love Olsen's talent but Cam Newton scares me. Cam is liable to check off his primary read early in the redzone and try to scramble for the TD.

Bradford is solid and has shown he trusts Kendricks and will target him. Go with Kendricks.
Thanks for your help

I have Steven Jackson as well and wouldn't want 2 rams in my line-up. Is Brandon Pettigrew a better option? He's on the WW... or should I still roll with Kendricks?

Pettigrew wouldn't be any worse. I couldn't blame you for picking him up.

I would go Pettigrew, he will put up some nice numbers in the lions offense. I would like to see how the rams use Kendricks before starting him.
help me please?

I disagree with not going with Kendricks because you own Steven Jackson already. I don't think there's any correlation that suggests it would hamper your fantasy stats.

However, Pettigrew is also a nice option but there's a lot of mouths to feed there. Calvin Johnson gets a lot of redzone looks and they still have Nate Burleson and Jahvid Best.

I would snag up Pettigrew and play him! I think he is just as good of a TE as Olsen, but has the better QB and will have more opportunites this year!

Best of Luck!

Kendricks

Eagles have terrible LBs and safeties. The Rams are going to be forced to throw to the tight end because the WRs are going to be covered by the Eagles great corners. Also, Eagles gave up the most points to tight ends last year.
