Ryan Griffin HOU-TE, who's rolling with him? (1 Viewer)

He played every snap last week, and with Daniels/Graham both likely out again, he should play every snap this week as well. Houston will be in comeback mode against Denver with Schaub at QB.

I'm rolling with him in 1 league because Cameron is looking like he's out. Anyone else?

 
He's looked good out there, Houston just seems to collect good RBs & TEs.

You have to put him in the running for Reed/Gronk/Cameron owners.

By the way the Broncos are ranked 26th against TEs according to CBS. FFT has them as the 10th most FFPA vs TEs on the year. Big chunk of that might have been Gronk's game against them and Witten had a big game as well.

HOU is no. 6 on the year in terms of FF points scored by team TEs.

1. NO

2. SF

3. DEN

4. CLE

5. SD

6. HOU

7. DAL

8. ATL

I like it.

Exactly the scenario I'm thinking of doing. I'm a Texans fan so I see what noodle-arm Schaub can do. He LOVES the tight ends and the short crossing routes they run. Griffin is the last man standing. Schaub doesn't target the #2,3 and 4 WRs. Only Andre, The TEs and occasionally the RBs out of the backfield. I assume Cameron will be inactive at this point. Outside of his fluke game vs New England, he hadn't put up big numbers. I'm confident if Griffin doesn't catch a TD, that he'll AT LEAST put up the meager numbers that Jordan Cameron has been putting up lately.
 
Former Gronk owner who started Tamme last week and is seriously considering him. I already had Fleener and scooped up a bunch of WW TEs this week (Griffin, Quarless, Lewis). As of right now, I think it's between Lewis and Griffin. I feel like Griffin is a better bet for yardage, Lewis for TDs (standard scoring league). I do like Griffin's match-up a lot better, though.

Ultimately, when you're talking about replacement-level TEs, it's all throwing darts, amirite?

Any dynasty potential here?
I would like to think so. He has good size and pretty solid catching the ball. He was underutilized in college from what I've read. Owen Daniels could likely be cut as a cap casualty and Garrett Graham is constantly nicked up. Graham hasn't even proven to be better than Joel Dreessen was in Houston. Griffin could definitely be the #1 TE in Houston in 2014/2015. Only thing is Kubiak was pretty good at developing the TEs in Houston. One of the few good points about Gary. Now that he's gone, the TE may no longer be heavily featured in the next offensive system. Time will tell.

I believe so. Texans' TE situation is one that has a lot of intrigue this off-season, multiple ways they might opt to go.

First thing to consider is a new staff and we won't know if they run as much of a TE friendly offense. We won't know who the QB is either but that's not a major concern to me right now.

From just a personnel perspective it will be interesting to see how they go about their various options and again since we don't know the staff I think it's fair to expect a chance of the unexpected.

Owen Daniels- will be 32 next season and I know a lot of people I talk to do NOT agree with me but I see a rapidly declining player.Dallas Clark 2.0. He can provide solid stretches but the more you ask of him the more likely he seems to get injured. He'll be due $4.5 million next year on last year of his deal. Will he be worth that to new staff with younger options, one of which is a FA? We'll see but right now I'm leaning no.

Garrett Graham- He largely disappointed during most of his stint as starter this year but provided some big games along the way. He's a FA and while he's not going to a bank breaking FA still not sure Texans have resources to re-sign him and pay Daniels, not with other needs. So would the Texans prefer to go with the younger Graham and resign him and release Daniels? Or will the Texans determine Daniels has another year left and let Graham walk and groom Griffin for job in 2015.

Griffin- seems destined to me be #2 TE on team next year unless Texas surprise me and both keep Daniels while resigning Graham. If he's second fiddle to Daniels his stock goes up in my opinion, provided the offense is fairly TE friendly, as he'll be backing up an aging injury prone player on the last year of his deal. If the Texans bring back Graham in any capacity I'd lower my feelings toward Griffin a great deal even if they no longer kept Daniels as I'd assume Graham would be on a multi year deal. Graham and Daniels both return I'd cut him.

 
Going back and forth with Pitta. I think they both play from behind but better weather in the dome, broncs will get up early...cant say that about New England. I am leaning Griffin.

 
Have fleener and clay who both have bad matchup's

considering him or pitta

but since pitta only playing half the snaps think I may go with him

 
One crucial caveat for everyone starting him today: Make damn sure that Graham is out. He's officially questionable (although he was the same last week and didn't play). Check Rotoworld by 12:45 and have a backup option available.

Did this last night, have Pitta in my back pocket.

Inactive per rotoworld

 
Flex worthy over the likes of a Streater type WR3?

Considering this move in TE slanted scoring league, TE's get a full PPR. Every other skill position get .5ppr

 
TE Heavy League, best ball to boot, rolling with him as my TE2/3 for today behind Charles Clay and Brandon Myers, had Gronk go down so a major hole left behind. We get 2 PPR for TE, something like 5/50/TD would go a long long way.

 
Was originally going to start Lewis. My thinking was that RG would get more yards, but Lewis was more likely to get TDs. Then I decided that was overthinking it, and I should just play the guy I trusted to get more yards, since you can't predict TDs. Should have stuck with my gut. But I also promised myself beforehand that I wouldn't second guess my decision, since who the hell can predict the performance of lower-end TEs?
