Too many TEs: Witten, Tamme, or Olsen? WHiR

Postby VeganPhilosopher » Tue Sep 11, 2012 5:31 am

I have Jason Witten, Jacob Tamme, and Greg Olsen in a 12 man 0.5 PPR league.

I have too many TEs, I know, but that is not my question. My question is: Which one should I start in week 2?

Also, which one should I drop if I have to drop one? (although I am actually hoping I can trade one of them).

WHiR, just add a link to your post.

RB: A Foster, F Gore, T Richardson, K Hunter, M Hardesty, A Green

D: ATL.

I'd start Witten for sure, simply because I think he's Romo's favorite target.

I'd drop Tamme over Olsen and here's why:

Manning also has and likes to throw the ball to Dressen, which will naturally give Tamme less targets. Olsen is Newton's #2 favorite target behind Steve Smith, and with Shockey gone from the line-up this year, Olsen's targets will increase even more.

I would start Tamme to give Witten one more week to see what he does. As far as who to drop I would wait until next week to make that call.

Temme. Olsen is too inconsistent and Witten is injured. Plus, like what the former poster said, Peyton loves his TEs especially one that already has had experience with him.

I'd go with Tamme here, as witten is still iffy with the injury and put up disappointing numbers last week. With all those targets in Dallas I think Witten will be seeing a reduced workload for at least the next 2 weeks as they figure out the Ogletree situation and hw to incorporate him.


If I had to drop/trade I would go with Olsen, Tamme is back with former Colt team mate Manning, and I think the two will do some damage this season.

There's no reason why you should have 3 TEs on your roster. TEs don't have much of an impact during head-to-head matchups unless you have one of the top TEs (Graham, Gronk). For week 2, I'd go with Tamme. Peyton usually treats his TEs pretty well. Witten is still recovering from an injury.

Start Tamme, drop Olsen.
