WHIR! Need TE help!

Postby enasnidx » Sat Nov 19, 2011 3:13 pm

Who to start in a PPR league: Brent Celek vs NYG (14th against TEs) or Greg Olsen vs. DET (7th against TEs)?

My thoughts: Celek has a better matchup and Maclin is out so he may get more looks on short routes. However, Vick is out and I don't know if I trust Young to toss it to him like Vick was. Olsen has a tougher matchup but he had 11 targets last week, and Shockey is out this week. If the Lions limit Smith, he could get a lot of looks again and he's not competing with Shockey for targets.

It may be worth noting that I have Steve Smith as well, and it's actally worked well this season to start both Olsen and Smith b/c they usually balance each other out as it's usually one of these two getting the recieving touchdowns.

Leave a link and I'll post my thougts for you topic!

I think VY is the X factor here. With Maclin out, Celek could be huge. More downside too. I love that Shockey is out and I see CAR leaning heavily on both those guys. I would go Shockey.
Good luck.

I think that VY is going to need all of the extra blocking he can get ... which usually negates a TE as a reliable fantasy factor.

Tough call, but I'd roll with Greg in the hopes that he hits some pay dirt.

Take a look at mine?
