THE NEWS

Falcons' tight end Alge Crumpler has more freedom in the West Coast offense that is being installed by head coach Jim Mora Jr. than he did in the system used by the previous coaching staff. The four-year veteran has spent the offseason studying the offense because his expanded role requires him to know what his teammates will be doing on each play, as he has been given the freedom to read the defense and adjust his route accordingly in many pass situations. "I have so many more options as far as flexibility and route-running options than I've ever had, which is great as long as I understand the concept of the play," Crumpler recently told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "I have to know where the other (receivers) are so I don't cover them." Crumpler had 552 receiving yards and three touchdowns last season.


OUR VIEW

All signs point to this being a big fantasy season for Crumpler. He finished fifth in tight end receiving yards last season despite playing without quarterback Michael Vick for 11 games. A healthy Vick and the increased freedom in the passing game should help Crumpler take his game to the next level. Alge will be featured in red zone situations more often this season, so there's a strong chance that he could top the career-high five touchdowns he scored in 2002.


Could be a big year for Alge, I got him as a top 5 TE

Yea, he should be in the top five, he showed us last year that he doesnt mind taking charge when peerless cant get a touch, and if he busts, there are plenty of guys availble, TE is a deep position

He's definately one to grab once the big names have gone. He represents true value at the TE position.

I have Alge Crumpler ranked somewhere in my top ten. I wasn't too high on him after last season and I'm not getting my hopes up for this season, though. I still think that after the big three (possibly four), it's really a crapshoot and I wouldn't even bother ranking 'em.
