Jermaine Wiggins - Don't Grab Him...

Postby Canacuna » Tue Sep 21, 2004 6:11 pm

This isn't the most exciting news of the week by any means, but a lot of people, including myself, thought Wiggins might be a nice sleeper TE or replacement for Kellen Winslow or Todd Heap. Don't rush to the free agency listings just yet...

ESPNews reports Minnesota Vikings TE Jermaine Wiggins (hand) is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with a hand injury.

I was too, Cuna...I saw the hand thing on ESPN News when I woke up... :-t It's a shame because he was really looking good last night. So, anyone know the #3 TE in Minnesota?? :-)

Edit - Never mind...I saw the other thread with Viking TE news... :-[

I think it's a rookie, Jeff Dugan. If you watched the game last night, he was the guy (#83) that had a couple of false starts when Minny was approaching the red zone. Besides that, I don't know much about him. I'd stay clear for now.

1.Dallas Clark 7 out of 10 stars as starter
2.Desmond Clark 5 and a half of 10
3.Erron Kinney 5 as starter

Not much production from the rest though :-/

Kinney is a nice sleeper TE right now though...

i know, it's a lot of poo. i nabbed dallas; hoping he can get over his sore foot and crank it. man, half of my league grabbed back-up TE. on draftday, i thought they were silly, but now i'm the jackass. just look at my avatar.

Jermaine Wiggins is a good friend of mine, I went to school with him here in East Boston and he was always a very good route runner with great catching abilty! This is the first year I drafted him since he's on a throwing offense! He's still a good pickup if you have to have 2 TE's in your roster! 3 weeks is not that long!
