he's probably not still on any waiver wires out there, but if you don't have Gonzo, I'd seriously consider plugging this guy in there. He's coming on at the right time and he's due to find the endzone.

 
He could be a good play. Question - where can you find stats on how opposing teams rank in points allowed to various positions? I read on this board that the Packers give up alot of points to tight ends, but couldn't find any way to verify that.

 
Im probably going to start him over Gates. Hes been killing me.

Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me 7 times, shame on him.

 
Debating between Scheffler and Keller right now. The good thing about Scheffler is that with the injury to Hillis, they may utilize him more in the short passing game to help move the chains.

:confused: my thoughts too. Debating on him and Carlson but this may be the week Scheff puts one in.

That info can be found on MFL, if you've got aleague that is run there. It's kind of buried, but it's there.
 
If Stokley's out he should get a lot of the over the middle stuff as well. Cutler will throw 50+ times this week - so he should see chances.

 
What about the signing of Jeb Putzier? Will he cut in on Sheffler?
No, this looks like depth w/ Nate Jackson on the IR now. Even knowing the playbook, I can't see him doing much of anything w/ < 1 week back w/ the team. Graham is still a TD vulture and gets a grab occasionally though. This looks like a 'get the depth ready for the playoffs - just in case' move by DEN. And considering how they've been through about 10 RBs so far, who could blame them?No worries about Scheffler, aside from the groin. This matchup @ CAR looks nice considering TB / Garcia just put up 325 passing yds on them in CAR. Cutler could go over 400 w/ no run game if DEN can keep Peppers off his back.

Same decision for me - Carlson or Scheff. I am really flip-flopping here. It's tough to bench either guy. I am starting Cutler - does that somehow make Scheff more appealing?

Steel Town, if I lived anywhere close I would buy ya a beer and we could flip flop all day on this one.. I have choosen Scheffler over Carlson at the moment because Cutler is also my QB. I really do like Carlson though. This might be one of those situations where it doesn't cost you much more than a couple points either way and there is no bad decision.
 
I hope you're right bro. The loss of Hillis is making me lean towards Scheffler, at the moment. But, it is also hard to ignore how hot Carlson is right now. I would have thought losing Hass would decrease his value, but it looks like Wallace targeted Calrson plenty last week.

Good luck, man....I hope we have the same dilemma next week :thumbup:

 
Of course Scheffler is a is a good play. I traded him away a few weeks ago to the guy who is now my 1st round playoff opponent. He's going to kill me.

 
St Louis defending well against TE's? Should we ignore this if starting Carlson?

TE points given up is tricky because I assume if a defense focuses on taking it away, they can, for the most part.

No. But I think if you consider yourself a big underdog, it would be a good play to go all-in on a particular matchup. Otherwise, all else being equal, I like to spread my bets around.

I was just flipping through their schedule. It looks to me like they haven't played anyone who typically uses their TE a lot recently (Arizona twice, Miami, SF, Chicago - who blew them out quickly running it). About a month ago, Dustin Keller did alright against them: 6-107-1. Urban caught a long pass for a TD the week before - IIRC that was a lucky play, tipped ball or something.
 
HotNickz...are you stating that the Rams are good at defending the TE, or is that a question?
Yup, or at least that's what it looks like. I phrased it horribly.SF or St Louis are good at defending TE's if I remember correctly. Maybe it's because they give up anything to all the other positions that there is no need to use the TE.
