I think you guys are really overlooking Kleinsasser, and I dont have a problem with that :-b

As a competitor I hope his value stays low, but as a contributer to this esteemed forum, I have to encourage you guys to look more closely to Kleinsasser. He is a pretty big sleeper, and I have him ranked before a lot of the guys being talked about here.


Quinbrave - dude, your 2nd best TE isnt even the starting TE for his own team. Dallas Clark replaced him last yr before injury - and one can only assume now that he is healthy again, Peyton will continue to look for him over Pollard. Your rankings are way way off. :-t

Wrighster from Jags.......
I didn't buy into him before.....
But he had a pretty good game. If you owned Leftwich, maybe he would be a great sleeper......

LJ Smith. If he builds on last season he should crack at least top 15, which isn't much, but that's assuming nothing spectacular. Reid likes to use his TE's, and Chad Lewis is on the way out. Smith won't have a lot of pressure in passing situations, and had really showed off some impressive skills in the later half of last year. My only real concern is whether his hands problem was just rookie jitters or lack of ability.

Good point about Clark - some are still ranking him too low. As to Kleinsasser, did the Vike's add Wiggins to challenge him or is he strictly backup material at this point?

The fantasy downside to Kleinsasser is he is such a great blocking TE. The Vikes know this and use him for that purpose mostly. He's the guy that either catches the defense off guard for 2 TDs or gets you 1 catch for 9 yards.

Probably better than the other bottom half TEs in the league, but a bottom half TE stinks regardless.

I'll throw in 2 that haven't been talked about: Johnson, SF and Rikhs, NYJ.

Johnson has always been a nice receiving TE in a good TE offense in SF. He's got speed to get down the seam and with so many questions at WR, this could be a 50 catch year.

Rikhs is a nice TE that is going to a good situation in NY. With a healthy Penny, he could have a nice 50+ catch year.
