    Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels is saying that his scan and MRI indicate that his repaired knee is 100% and ready to go.It would be great to get at least a glimpse of him this preseason, but even without one, I think he makes a great draft pick based on the fact that he’s currently going as around the 8th to 10th tight end and could end up with top 4 numbers.

      Question for you guys: my two leagues draft today and tomorrow. Can’t think of a draft strategy for either of them.

      League 1 (drafts tonight): 2 QBs start everything else normal, 1 POINT PER RECEPTION!!!!!!!!. Who do you take in early rounds? Driving me crazy. 8 team league

      League 2: 2 QBs start as well, but it’s a 10 team league. normal ppr (.5 per reception). Who do you take in early rounds?

      position wise

        Both leagues seem similar enough to use the same kind of strategy, especially with both being 2 QB. It’s hard to know the exact strategy without knowing your draft pick, but it’s important to get a really good one for your QB1 slot, as that position will provide a lot of your points. Receiving running backs are ideal as well and most of the top guys should get that job done (CJ, MJD, Rice, Gore, AP.) Matt Forte could be a later round sleeper due to the amount of balls he’ll catch out of the backfield. Then, receivers who catch the ball a lot need to be targeted, such as Andre Johnson, Wes Welker, Brandon Marshall, Reggie Wayne, Anquan Boldin, Roddy White, and Larry Fitzgerald (not in that order necessarily.) I’d aim to lock down a solid QB1, RB1 and WR1 with your top three picks, but don’t be pigeon-holed into it if one of the top guys aren’t there anymore.

        Not sure if this is helpful at all, but I’d be interested to see how the drafts go. Let us know how it worked out!

          Just finished my first league’s draft… Check out this beauty of a draft.

          QB Brees
          QB Romo
          WR Calvin Johnson
          WR Brandon Marshall
          WR Marques Colston
          RB Cedric Benson
          RB Jahvid Best
          RB Ahmad Bradshaw
          TE Jason Witten
          TE Zach Miller (we start 2 TEs too)
          W/R TJ Housh

          Michael Bush
          Cadillac Williams
          Dez Bryant
          Matt Cassell
          Steve Breaston
          Braylon Edwards
          Darren Sproles

          In a league where most QBs were gone by the 2nd round, and where there is 1 point per reception, I think this team is pretty damn good.

          What do you think?

          Wow, nice team! I especially like the Brees/Romo combination at the top and those wide receivers. At running back you should be solid too. I think Michael Bush will be decent for the Raiders as long as they can get something going on offense, so he’ll be a good backup for you. Let’s hope tomorrows draft goes as well!

          I don’t know but some word of advice…

          Because its a ppr league that means if you have any chance of getting ray rice get him.
          pass up peterson and mjd.

          Just because it’s a PPR league (only 0.5 ppr) doesn’t mean you bail on Peterson and MJD. Both of those guys had 40+ receptions (53 for MJD) and both of their rushing touchdown numbers were much higher than Rice’s. You can’t really go wrong with any of them, but to date, Rice still has the best backup to vulture scores from him with McGahee still on the team. If he’s traded, Rice’s stock goes up even higher of course.

        Davone Bess is another guy you might target later in the draft as a WR3 due to the large number of passes he’ll catch, especially now that Greg Camarillo is out of town.

          Thanks! Also, the first league has 3 RBs starting and 2nd league has 1 point per 30 return yards (deep league, eh? lol)

      Hey guys,

      I’m in 10 teamer and had the 4th pick. I got Rice in the 1st, SJax in the 2nd. In the 5th I was able to grab Shonn Greene (yes the 5th). Couple hrs later I found out that I am in a league that scores .5/recep. I have to think that even in a league that rewards receptions, Greene shouldn’t have lasted to the 5th. Nonetheless, I ended up with Kolb at QB (big ? mark in my opinion but think he will excel) and Greg Jennings, Sims-Walker, Harvin, Jacoby Jones, Burleson, Santonio Holmes at WR and feel real weak with them. My question is .. some guy is really on me for Rice. He is offering Wayne and Ronnie Brown for him and I almost want to bite. I feel real confident with starting SJax every week then platooning Greene and Brown depending on matchup. I would hate to give up a top 4 player like Rice but I really want to have a top tier WR .. What you guys think about this trade? And what are your opinions on Kolb this season? Cheers!

        Wow you had a really good draft. My advice? Do not give up Rice. In PPR leagues Rice will be big. He catches a lot of passes and is a very competent RB. He should be untouchable. Jennings is already an elite wide-out, and Sims-Walker isn’t bad. Harvin will be good with Sidney Rice injured. And Holmes will be great once he returns from his suspension. I personally think you should go for a different QB. Kolb is a risky starter.

      RB Frank Gore
      RB Knowshon Moreno
      WR Reggie Wayne
      WR Greg Jennings
      WR Anquan Boldin
      WR Santonio Holmes
      TE Antonio Gates
      TE Jermichael Finley
      D 49ers
      D Steelers
      K Robbie Gould

      Your thoughts. Am I weak in any category?

      • Steven 3:26 pm on August 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        and also I have QB Eli Manning

      • Brandon 10:46 am on August 27, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Holy smokes, that team seems awesome. Gates AND Finley at tight end? Not diggin’ Santonio Holmes or Knowshon Moreno that much, but the rest is great.

    2008 Tight End Power Rankings 

    Power rankings for other positions

    Here are your power rankings for the tight end position this season. If you don’t pull one of the top guys on the list, make sure you don’t rush into any rash decisions to fill the spot. I expect that we’ll see some pretty solid stats from some of the second and third tier guys on this list…guys you can get pretty late in the draft. (More …)
