Stay pat or upgrade my TE?


Best decision

  1. 1. Stay pat or propose a deal

    • Hester for Clark
    • Hester/Shockey for Clark/Jenkins
    • Stay pat since Shockey should be good enough in a 14 teamer

I think I might need an upgrade at TE. I drafted in a high scoring 14 teamer and ended up with Shockey. I really wanted Winslow or Olsen but I grabbed LeSean McCoy in the 7th round since rbs had dwindled down a lot due to the scoring settings. By the 8th both Olsen and Winslow were gone of course. Anyway 1 team has both Clark and Witten so I'm thinking of proposing a trade to get Clark.



Passing-- 1/20yds, -3/ints, 6/td, 0.5/comp, Bonus 10@350yds, 20@450yds

Rush/Receive--6/td1/10, 1PPR, -1/lost fum, 1/rush att, Bonus-10@150, 20@220

Return--1/25, 8pt tds

Finally the question...would you make a move for a TE upgrade? Or will Shockey be decent enough in 09. He can only go up from last year right?


With his weak WRs (except AJ) I think my options are

1. Hester for Clark straight up

2. Hester/Shockey for Clark/Jenkins

3. Stay pat and hope Shockey can finally make some noise in 09.

First - I would absolutely not be comfortable going into the season with Shockey as my #1TE. I am going to assume we are talking about Dallas Clark from the Colts, of course. If you have Chad Johnson (85 I assume) and Jennings, I would deal Hester for Clark straight up and be happy with the huge upgrade at the position.

You do need to work on getting a different TE, but I would work on those two flex spots first. They will hurt your team more. McCOy is great to have, but he ins't really valuable unless Westy goes down. I know that it would suck to do it, but you may need to think ( I only said to THINK) about trading Brees for two solid starters that you could fill those two flex spots and maybe the TE as well. Edwards should do well. Remember, I just said to think about it.
