Hey guys, my fantasy draft is tomorrow and I found out there will be a WR/TE flex position in my league this year, so I was thinking instead of trying to focus on getting big receiver, I should target the top tight ends. I had Tony Gonzalez last year under a pretty lousy KC team, and he still put up big numbers. Under Matt Ryan, I have a feeling he's going to blow up. I've got the 7th pick in the 1st, then 6th in the 2nd, 7th in the 3rd, and so on.
I was thinking I'd do something like this:
1: Frank Gore, Larry Fitzgerald
2: RB2 / Tom Brady / Randy Moss
3: Aaron Rodgers
4: Jason Witten
5: Tony Gonzalez
6: Pittsburgh DEF
When is the earliest you would take a tight end? I feel like owning Witten and Gonzalez would be a good 22-30 points a week you could count on where anyone less in that spot would only be good for about 2-8 points each.
Another scenario could be if I got Fitzgerald and Moss in round 1 and 2, then Witten
and Gonzalez in 4 and 5. That would be a pretty high scoring team, but weak at the running back position.
I probably have to take a RB with the 1st or 2nd round. I really got a lot of mileage out of DeSean Jackson and Eddie Royal with late round picks last year. I had Gore and Forte, which worked out really well. I have a feeling that Darren McFadden could be a good mid round pick. Aaron Rodgers could also be very good.
