Need TE backup help, should I pick... WHIR

Postby hesparza77 » Thu Sep 22, 2011 1:41 pm

I am in a league where most teams own at least two TEs and after I was scooped on the waiver wire this week trying to get Keller, I am worried about the thinned out talent.
I only have Graham on my team and would like a decent back up for bye week and injury issues.

Is it too early to give up hope on Harvin (or maybe Moreno, though I prefer not to and pick up a back up before all talent is gone after week 3. Currently here are the names on FA list worth mentioning. Fred Davis, Dickson, Jeff King, and Scheffler. Please take a look at my roster below and I appreciate your comments and will return the favor.

NFL standard non-PPR scoring, 10-teams

QB Romo, Fitzpatrick
RB Turner, Mendenhall, Hillis, Moreno
WR VJackson, Welker, Marshall,Bryant, Harvin, McCluster
TE Graham
K Rackers
D varies

Flacco has always enjoyed throwing to TEs and Dickson has a lot of potential.

Thus far, Fred Davis looks great. Could be worth picking him up - but if i had to drop either Moreno or Harvin? Tough question... but at first glance I'd say Harvin (for now, unless he starts to see more snaps).

Could use some help with my situation: viewtopic.php?t=498507

Harvin's value depends on how good McNabb does, and I wouldn't rely on that right now. Plus they're monitoring is playing time to prevent injuries game to game. If anything drop him. Btw I can't see ur roster

Right now I like Fred Davis* and Jeff King over Scheffler or Dickson.

I forgot to post my roster.

Anyway its a NFLstandard non-PPR scoring, 10-teams

QB Romo, Fitzpatrick
RB Turner, Mendenhall, Hillis, Moreno
WR VJackson, Welker, Marshall,Bryant, Harvin, McCluster
TE Graham
K Rackers
D varies

Please note that as of now I feel comfortable with who I would usually start week to week at WR, so not necessarily hanging on to Harvin to save me.

Drop Harvin and pick up Davis. This is a tough one becuase I see Harvin and Moreno doing well by season's end. BUt I like keep RBs and MOreno has a ton of upside and as one poster already said Harvins success depends on McNabb which isn't too promising right now.

thanks for your help with mine

Top TE out there is Davis, however I would personally need to see a larger body of work before I buy into him. I would hold off on picking up a TE.

See what happens with McCluster (who may prove to be a stinker), Harvin, and Moreno before you make a decision. All three of these players have large upsides and could prove to be valuable in the trade market. Watch the Waiver TEs for another week and try to gauge who is for real before you pull the trigger.

I'm not too knowledgable about all of the players there, but Dickson sounds like a good idea.
