Sleepers

Ben Watson – Clev. 

                       In New England , the Pats had too many weapons for Watson to always be effective.  Now Watson is on a bad Cleveland Browns team and could be there best receiver.  Watson has the speed of a receiver and has good hands as shown in New England.  With not many weapons on the team, Watson could come up big as Jake Delhomme’s safety belt.  Expect him to be the best red zone target on the team, as he proved capable of doing so with the Pats.

Fred Davis – Wash.

                      Mike Shanahan like to run two tight end sets and what do you know Washington has two good tight ends.  The Skins do not have a good receiving core so you could also see Davis playing some receiver also.  Plus with Chris Cooley coming back from an injury from 2009, in which Fred Davis excelled, Shanahan is not gonna let his talents go to waste.

David Thomas – NO.

                       Now that Jeremey Shockey is starting to show his age and becoming more injury prone, it opens the door for Thomas to get more playing time.  Right now, Thomas is a better option at tight end for the Saints as he proved during the Saints Super Bowl run.  He played so well in the playoffs in the playoffs last season, he earned alot more playing time in 2010.

Busts

Jeremy Shockey – NO.

                       Shockey hasn’t been his same old self since he came to New Orleans.  Since coming to the Saints he has become more injury prone.  There are too many weapons on the Saints roster for Shockey to be effective and it looks like he’s gonna lose more to David Thomas.  Year after year fantasy owners draft shockey hoping for a glimpse of his good old days but it has become apparent that it’s not gonna happen.  He is a match up play at best now and eventually we will see Thomas take over as the starter.

Mercedes Lewis – Jax. 

                          Lewis hasn’t made much noise since being drafted in the first round a few years ago.  Jacksonville doesn’t have a strong passing game period.  The Jags have not had true number one receiver since Jimmy Smith and were hoping Lewis would step up at the tight end position.  Lewis to will be a match up play at best this season but don’t expect much.  Zach Miller looks to be the top goal line tight end, making things worse for Lewis.  Who knows Zach Miller might take his job completely.
