Tight Ends vs. O.K. Wide Recivers

Recommended Posts

I'm in a 12 team league that does not require a TE, instead they're simply interchangable with WR's if you wish.

 

In my league WR's are receiving 8 points per TD, vs. RB's at 6, and I found that I was able to draft crumpler and heap when the WR's were getting thin.

 

Will either of them put up points that would surpass or equal mid to lower tier recivers such as a kevin curtis, tyrone calico, reggie williams - you get my drift?

 

I'm not sure if I should start either of them over a B. lloyd, B. Engram, etc.

 

Thanks

bump, no one???

 

Hasn't anyone here been in a league with this format? I'm curious if you used some TE's over WR's.

I think Crumpler's going to score tomorrow, if that's what you're looking for. I mean, I would say the odds are better that Alge gets a TD than the three guys you mentioned...

I'm in a league that does the same thing and I understand your dilema....I think Lloyd would be your best bet here...49ers will be behind early and often and will have to throw so someone has to get it....Lloyd will score probably some cheap TD's but who cares how....I think he has a better upside than either TE you mentioned...hope that helps....good luck.

in my local league TEs are interchangable, but they only get 6pts. per TD. i drafted Gonzo, Clark, and Witten. couldnt be happier (since i got gonzo one round later than normal, and clark and witten 2-4 rounds later than normal)

Take a look at various projections and past performances for your answer. Look at Crumpler, for example - 750 yards and 6 TDs last year? All mid-tier WRs (and most WRs that are draftable) have higher upside than that.

I think I'd probably lean towards mid tier WR then second or third tier TEs. Unless you have Gonzo, Witten and Clark like seminoles did. Crumpler is probably worth taking a risk but with not as much consistency you may find with some mid level WRs.

Only Gonzo and Gates, after that a WR will just have more upside. Unless of course you have a great matchup for Alge, certinly not this week against Philly

I think you're right about alge this week. But my co-manager would like to play one of heap or alge this week. I told him we should just pick up lloyd and throw him in instead!
