Start or Sit Week 8 TE

Post by thatguy » Fri Oct 30, 2009 6:13 pm

Hey guys,

I have a real dilemma right here...

I have 2 very capable TEs playing this week.

John Carlson (SEA) @ Dallas
or
Visanthe Shiancoe (MIN) @ Green Bay

Which one do you think I should start?

I'd go with Shiancoe, he's a good redzone threat and the Seahawk's O-line is in shambles.

When in fantasy football and players are even in skill I look for two things;

#1 Who are they playing?
#2 Who is scoring the most?

Considering those two things I think you start Shiancoe.

That's what NFL.com is saying too...I guess the safe bet would be to go with Shiancoe...it's a shame...Carlson started out so well...he's great if other people on his team are healthy too...
