Can't forget about Andrew Quarless. I believe he is going to be Packers starting TE since Finely and Donald Lee are injured.

Ya that crossed my mind, Im just worried that the Pack will change their game plan and use their WRs more becuase they have 3 or 4 legit guys at that spot.
Aaron Hernandez if he's not already picked up
I'm in a similar situation, although my replacements are between moaeki and winslow. I just signed winslow but its still possibly to make a change.
I'm in the same boat and I picked up Moeaki.

I thought about Pettigrew, but I went with Moeaki because he's been more consistent in his games, has a more favorable schedule, and already had his bye week.

Not sure if that was the right move, but that was my thought process.

You think Moeaki is a better pickup than Kellen Winslow?
I vote for *another name that isn't in the poll*
Btw, sorry for temporary thread hijack fail dman. I voted for Brandon Pettigrew

I just meant that between Moeaki and Pettigrew I chose to go with Moeaki.

Like I said, match up are favorable and their bye week already happened.

Here's what fftoolbox says about him:


TE Tony Moeaki, KC

I rarely mention a player 2 weeks in a row, but I think Tony Moeaki is worth a start this week again as he has a great match up vs. Houston. Last week Moeaki was once again the Chiefs' leading receiver as he caught all 4 passes thrown to him for 50 yards. The Chiefs tried to get Dwayne Bowe involved in the offense, but he was a disappointment once again, dropping many of the passes that came his way. Well, I think the coaching staff might have had enough of Bowe and will focus on getting the ball to players who could actually catch it. As I mentioned with Cassel above, the Texans are one of the worst teams at defending the pass, giving up an average of 8 receptions for 91.6 yards and .6 touchdowns to TE's so far this season. Look for these kinds of numbers this week for Moeaki.

Now it's being reported that Finley is out for the season.

Do you guys think Quarless will get many looks?

I picked up James Jones, figuring that he might be the guy to get most of Finley's targets.

Pettigrew gave me a decent week, I also traded Davone Bess for Aaron Hernandez.

I picked up Heath Miller, worked out great. Roth loves him, esp in the red zone. Probably won't be available now though.
