Clark or Dickson?

Postby nikolai_42 » Wed Sep 14, 2011 12:09 am

I currently have Clark (IND) and Gronkowski at TE. With Manning out for the long haul, is it worth holding on to Clark or should I dump him for Dickson? There are a few other TE's that can be picked up - Gresham, Watson, Miller and Heap are also available. What's the best move? Clark is good, but Collins is no Manning, obviously.

Any help appreciated.

DO NOT DDROP DALLAS CLARK ARE YOU CRAZY? EVEN W/O him NO WAY!

Gron+those other TEs are a toss up. Save your ww priority if its in the top half of the league.

Thanks. I've never been very good picking TE's anyway. Back when he was top 10, I had Gonzalez for 2 years running and have basically floundered since then. Maybe my approach to the position is wrong...it sounds like it is in this case, anyway.

But again, thank you.

Do not dump Dallas Clark, yet. Just keep Dickson on your watch list.
You will be starting Gronkowski moving forward and I don't think Clark is a top-10 fantasy TE anymore with Kerry Collins on board. It wouldn't be crazy adding Dickson if he does this for another week or two.

I agree with the others here. Hold tight on Clark for now. Collins will be better, and Clark was in a bad spot on Sunday. Obviously without Manning his value takes a hit, but don't drop him in a panic move.

From Yahoo wrote:TE Dallas Clark was given an unenviable task against the Texas. Try and pass block against Houston defensive end turned outside linebacker Mario Williams. Williams ended up with two sacks of Colts QB Kerry Collins. "Dallas fought him, but that's more on me than anything else," coach Jim Caldwell admitted. "I have to take responsibility for knowing those situations would come up, and we just have to find a way to, if he needs some help, get him some help or look at alternatives."
