TE Help. F Davis, J Witten, or J Tamme. WHiR.

Postby VeganPhilosopher » Sat Sep 29, 2012 3:23 am

Okay so I drafted Witten and Tamme, and both have been pretty terrible, although I at least got credit for Tamme's week 1 TD. I also owned Olsen at one point, but I dropped him thinking it was silly to carry three TEs. Apparently Olsen was the best TE I had, and he was quickly snatched off waivers.

I just got Fred Davis off waivers this week, and I feel like he is my best bet given the way Washington's offense is clicking and how much he was involved last week.

Witten should get going eventually, as he is usually at least a steady producer, but so far he has been horrible (I also owned Witten in 2009 when he only had 2 TDs, so I might be biased against him a bit).

Tamme I thought would do big things with Manning, but he just has not looked very good. He is getting more targets than John fox usually gives his TEs, but still not enough to be very confident in him. More worrisome is the fact that he is not doing much with the targets he is getting. He quite frankly looks over-matched most of the time.

I am hopeful that Tamme will click with Manning and Witten will at least manage some kind of consistency, but so far I have not seen it. Davis has not done much either, but he started to get it going with RG3 last week, and I think there is a decent chance he will again. It is far from an obvious choice though.

Witten and Davis are both matched against teams that have allowed between the 15th and 20th most fantasy point to TEs (Chicago and Tampa). Tamme's match up is a bit tougher (Oakland is 8th in fantasy points allowed to TEs).

Standard scoring, 0.5 PPR, 12 team league. What do you guys think: Witten, Davis, or Tamme this week?

WHiR, just post a link to your quandry.

I would go with Davis, he should see around 8 targets this week and he has a good match-up.

with Witten dropping passes the way he is lately I'd go Davis here also

Looks like you're in a tough spot here. All 3 of your TEs have been garbage this year. I just have a hard time seeing Witten go 3 straight games with the drops. I'd go with Witten one more week. If it continues then bench him until he proves it.

Fred led the Redskins in targets. And Tamme has an excellent matchup. I would eliminate Witten and go with one of those guys. GL...

Sorry to not agree with most...but considering the options of Tamme & Davis(both are 1 of 3 for somewhat successful weeks) I'd roll with Witten on Monday nite at home. Guy is a competitor and was NOT happy about his drops. His ceiling is much higher then the other 2. Good Luck

Please help with mine
