Total Pro Sports picks for the Top 5 Overrated Fantasy Tight Ends for the upcoming 2008 season.
Stay far away from these big busts in your next Fantasy draft.
The fact that the Giants won the Superbowl without this guy says a lot about his fantasy value. He was considered a stud at the TE position, now he has fallen from the top. If you feel confident then maybe you want to take a chance on the guy. He has a chance to produce some numbers, but there should be better options available for your team on draft day.
2. Bo Scaife
The former college teammate of Vince Young at Texas and current Titans tight end was once considered a solid sleeper pick. This past off-season the Titans picked up veteran Algae Crumpler from the Atlanta Falcons and solidified the starting TE position. This move should be reason enough for this guy’s value to decrease significantly.
Randy had some solid years in Miami, which made him one of the best TEs in fantasy at one time. Since joining the Rams he has fallen off the radar. He is a victim of playing on team which has some high profile pass catchers and also of being asked to stay on the line of scrimmage and block. It seems that his best days are behind him, so stay away.
4. Eric Johnson
When Johnson played for the 49ers he looked to have the skills to be the next great TE in the NFL. In the years since Vernon Davis drove him out of town he has never recaptured his faded glory. Johnson, who now plays for New Orleans, has the team around him to be successful; it just seems that his body has worn down.
I almost didn’t want to put Lewis’ name here because he still is relatively new to the NFL. He was a first round draft pick and is yet to prove to the Jags that he deserved to be. In fact, his former UCLA teammate and current Jaguars teammate, Maurice Jones Drew, has been a much better player overall. Although they play very different positions the differences in production between the two is staggering. I hope he proves me wrong and has a good year.
