well i drafted shockey, and he was having a pretty decent year, so i was pretty happy, until he got hurt....i had shannon sharpe and doug jolley last year and got decent production outta those guys as well.....and if yah boo williams lately yah also been pretty happy....

its a worthwhile position....especially when a guy has a huge breakout game for maybe 100 + yards and a score or 2.

it does add some strategy to the draft, and guys like shockey, gonzo, etc can actually put up numbers almost as good as most teams #2 wr.

A tight end position slot i think is a great idea. We have one this year and its been fun playing the WW trying to figure out whos gonna have a big game. Guys like Boo Williams come outta nowhere and do great for two weeks then fade off. Crumpler scored twice the first two weeks and now where is he?. You also have to draft accordingly becuase it can be a huge advatage to have a gonzo or sharpe.

I like starting a TE for all the reasons previously stated. As for the arguments against, it's the same for the other team as well. Another thing that I like about the TE is that I am a tinkerer and love to look on the wire for availible players. If you don't have to start a TE, there will be less skill players to choose from. That takes away from the game, IMO. Hell, I'm even starting to warm up to the idea of having to carry 2 Ds and Ks. It makes me ill when I read posts over the last month about people wondering if they should pick up Rudi, J. Jackson, or Boo Williams. These players are gone the minute they make an impact in my 12 team league.

TE's can be at times very frustrating if you aren't willing to use that high draft pick to get a reliable one.

Agree totally. Tell the guy that spent an early pick on Gonzo that it's luck.

I am an FF rookie but I joined a league that as been around for several years and expanded from 10 to 12 teams. We start a TE and the TE gets 1 pt per reception which RB and WR do not get. This brings the avg TE position points up to the same level as the other skill positions. As others have said, I think this adds to the strategy, awiver wire activity, etc. The top TE's are worth a lot in our league. I like our scoring system and plan on picking a TE early in the draft next year.
