Needed TE Help, Bennett Myers or Chandler?? PPR whir

Postby rclement3915 » Mon Sep 17, 2012 3:37 pm

Well my TE position has killed me through 2 weeks.

Fred Davis
Greg Olsen

Last week I thought of adding Martellus Bennett or Brandon Myers, but figured
Id give Davis 1 last shot with Garcon out. Well it backfired.

So, going forward, who's my best option?

Bennett- has 2 straight games scoring, and with nicks/cruz will be open. Manning uses his TE an throws it.

Myers-has racked up 11 catches for 150 yards. Raiders should throw it fairly ofte , and don't exactly have a star studded receiver core. Could be in for some work.

Chandler- started off hot last year but cooled off. Has scored twice in 2 games, with David Nelson out for the season, could see an uptick in targets/action.


Thoughts? I'm gonna keep Olsen for now but Davis is getting the axe.

Will help in return just leave the links

I like Bennett. Eli is giving him a fair share of targets and he definitely uses his tight ends like you mentioned.

Take it from a Giants fan...go with Bennett. He's a big target & Eli loves his TE's. I sat Bennett both weeks for Olsen & suffered.

Thanks for the help with mine!

Bennett has way more targets (and I think was targeted 4 or 5 times in the end zone alone last week), he has the most upside.

Bennett is definitely the TE to grab.

Watching the games, those weren't fluke performances. The sitations Manning is throwing into when he's targeting Bennett shows that he trusts him. Granted he's virtually come out of nowhere, he has the size and talent to be amongst the league leaders and Manning is taking advantage.

The league is catching on to the value of targeting TEs that are too fast for linebackers to effectively cover and too tall for corners to effectively cover. Plus on a team with Cruz and Nicks, nobody can afford to double team a TE. I look for Bennet to find himself with light coverage in the endzone quite often. Receivers like Cruz and Nicks are great to have for deep passes with their combination of hands and speed. When it gets to goalline stances, TEs like this are targeted often on throwing plays.

In other words, he's showing he has the talent in he's in as good a situation as any.

Agreed.
Go with Bennett. Don't trust chandler at all OR carson palmer.
Bennett is looking very solid.

Have you thought about Denis Pitta? He has been doing well for PPR leagues...
