Any point in keeping 2 good TEs? (Heap, Witten)

Postby patticus » Tue Aug 31, 2004 5:31 am

Witten had 107 yards tonight.... I'm thinking of pitching Heap around the league for some WR/RB help...

Think I can flummox someone out of a WR like Warrick or Charles Rogers or a RB like TJ Duckett?

Would it be worth it keeping 2 TEs in a league where you can only start 1...

Forget about Witten. Keep Heap. Soon Witten will be WW material. Dont buy into the hype that is Preseason.

I agree and disagree. I like Witten to do well but I wouldn't go as far as trading Heap away. If you want Warrick, you might be able to trade Witten for him after his huge performance last night. It's worth a shot.

Yeah, you may as well offer Witten up as trade bait.

I'd rather a TE that could develop into something rather than a RB who you will never play, and no one will want.

Wait two weeks into the season, then decide... and please don't trade FOR E.George. He'll be on the WW by week 4.

Did you even see last night's game? 4 rushes for 3 yards.

I got this off The Huddle...great site

Todd Heap had more passes thrown to him last year than Tony Gonzalez.

If you thought Jamal Lewis was the only force behind Baltimore’s offense last season, think again. Todd Heap had 109 passes thrown his way in 2003. Tony Gonzalez had 104. Unfortunately for Heap, he had rookie Kyle Boller and Anthony Wright chucking the ball. As a result, he only managed to haul in 59 of those 109 passes for completions. The fact remains that Heap is a vital part of the Ravens passing offense. As Boller gains experience and the number of errant throws drops, look for Heap’s value to soar. Given the choice between Gonzalez in the fourth round and Heap in the sixth round, I’d take Heap every time.


with Boller maturing, Heap should catch much more passes this year and possibly score 6+ td's so keep him
