It might be worth it to drop Graham and pick up Stevens. We have heard about both of these guys and how good they'll be and neither has done anything. However - Stevens plays in a more explosive offense under Holmgren who has a pretty good track record with TE's. I think he's going to have a breakout year this year. I wonder if the 3rd year is a breakout year for TE's like it is WR's? Gonzo came on in his 3rd year I think. Anyone have any thoughts on that?

I had Itula Mili as my #8 or #9 ranked tight end, but he just plummeted in my rankings wth this news.

I had drafted Stevens last year as a backup TE and had him pegged as a sleeper. He never materialized and Mili started pretty much the whole year. He's a huge talent but won't get drafted at all. If he ends up starting the whole year and you are looking for a super sleeper TE to draft as a backup. Make him your last pick.

looks like ill have to move mili from sleeper to deep deep sleeper. i think steevns is worth a look. hass is a top 5 qb and he has to throw the ball somewher. and yes i kno about k-rob and d-jax, but they cant catch everything.

I wouldn't count on Stevens living up to the hype. He has never before truly performed in the NFL and Mili still lurks. I'll pass on Stone Handed Stevens.

Yeah, I have a backup TE in my 12 team dynasty league, but we have 22 roster spots so what the hell. It's not like there's any talented WR or RBs left with 22 roster spots per team.
