    Yeah it's a concern, but not ready to give up on Brate yet by any means. Also got Hopper, who showed some promise as a rookie and now has the starting position and I drafted Hodges who could be a good pass catching TE. I actually like a bunch of the tight ends in this draft, but only time will tell which ones will work out, or if any of them will ( doubt that's the case, figure two or three will be good at least). Looking at rosters, I see those with need at TE have drafted a prospect at TE for the most part.

    I was looking hard at Hodges when I took Leggett. I would have preferred Hodges, but having Randolph I didn't want both my TEs on the same team.

    That was more of a point against Treff's point about than a stab at Brate. Just saying that there are some uncertainties for a player drafted to be in the starting lineup this year (OJ H) AND a player that broke out last year, kind of knocking out 2 birds 1 stone there out of the TE pool.

    Also, Gary Barnidge was once a project TE, just took him 10 years to breakout!
    We still play fantasy football, not the real thing here, can't wait on projects at a position like TE, need guys that are part of the game plan to get you at least 8-10pts, ideally.

    To think that more than 3 viable TEs would come from the same draft I think is very wishful thinking as well.
    Especially since some fantasy pundits are already concerned Howard might be a great TE, but not a great fantasy TE. Not that long ago this was a position that only had 6-8 useful options in the whole league. The pool might be deeper now, but I still think there are only so many that are weekly starting options.

    Speaking for my self, think I'd try the waiver wire before trying to trade for a good TE. Seems like those that stock pile high tier TEs place a lot more value on them then I do, making it unpalatable to do a trade.

    :noidea:

    I'm happy and feel like I got a steal with Engram who I felt was a first round talent. It wouldn't make a ton of sense trading for a TE after drafting one so highly. Even though they can be slow to produce. All is not lost with the Steelers situation either with J James on my roster.

    Now the real question is why no one has traded for the GOAT yet??? :2cents:

    I would but I already have Brees and having both of them seems like overkill.

    We took Engram in D1 and are very happy about it. he should be a nice replacement for Delanie Walker as he gets older.
    And who is "the goat"?

    Interesting offers but I don't really trust that guy. Tried to come up with a counter but everything I thought of included montgomery and I figured that took things out of my price range. Lemme know if you think of anything though.
