Gronkowski or Greg Olsen? =WHIR=

Postby thepsychic » Thu Sep 15, 2011 5:00 pm

I already have Olsen and I've been hearing the so-called "Experts" predicting a rly good year for him. Gronkowski is in a two tight-end lineup with Hernandez for most of the snaps in New England, but it looks like he'll get his fair share of targets. Should I ditch Olsen for Gronkowski? Which TE do you trust more? Or should I carry both and drop Antonio Brown?

I would keep playing Olsen because you know he's always in as the primary TE. The 2 TE set up in NE is sketchy because you never know who will have the big game. But I also think you get more of a reqard for the risk with the NE play.



Mine?

Olsen will also split to some degree with Shockey.

I think they will put up very similar numbers....Pitta/Dickson is another similar share situation.


I would prefer someone like Gresham.....that is more or less the singular tight end. The guy in Buffalo might be worth a look as are Keller and Celek if they're not taken.




Just my opinion....... I'm in a PPR and have Hernandez.....I think he's the only TE worth having on the patriots. He'll be consistent...Gronk will be hit or miss.

I think Gronk by a mile, he is Tom Bradys favorite target right now and in the red zone... He is on the field for every play...Did someone seriously say Keller or Celek? lol I think you have better options

I really don't like Hernandez or Gronkowski, because they are inconsistent. I'd stick with Olsen.

Here's mine

As much as i like Olsen, he has a rookie QB who is going to struggle throughout the season once defenses start gameplanning for him.

Gronkowski is the best QB in the games favorite target, and a TD machine in the RZ. Id pick him up and start him weekly without hesitation....He looked like antonio gates on Monday.

Olsen without a doubt for me. I've been seeing alot of people call Gronk Brady's favorite target and that he's always on the field, and he may get some of the patriots red zone looks, but the reality of Monday night was that Hernandez took 66 of the 80 total snaps, and Gronkowski took 21, as cited on ESPN. I think Gronk will be involved more when they start running more, but I think Hernandez is Brady's guy between the tight ends, and until that changes, Olsen is a better week to week option than Gronk.

That's just my two cents; but I'd go Olsen ;-D
