Week 7 Tight Ends

Oct 13, 2008

The San Diego Chargers have been very Tight End friendly in 2008.  Donte Rosario opened things up with 96 yards and a TD in Week 1.  Week 2 saw Tony Scheffler haul in 64 yards and 2 TDs.  Week 3 it was rookie Dustin Keller for 41 yards and a score.  In Week 4 Zach Miller produced 95 yards and a TD.  In Week 5 Anthony Fasano had 47 yards.  Last week the Chargers shut down the Patriot Tight Ends, but that is such an unpredictable Offense this year without Brady. 

This week it’s Buffalo’s turn to face San Diego.  Their weapon at Tight End is Robert Royal, who has 102 yards and a score in five games.  He’s never been a big yardage threat, but recent history suggests he could score this weekend.

Another player I like is Chicago’s Greg Olsen.  The Bears Offense has opened things up in recent weeks with the strong play of Devin Hester and Rashied Davis at Wide Reciever.  That should open things up in the middle for Olsen vs. the Vikings, who have been susceptible to TE production since losing MLB E.J. Henderson.  Without Henderson the Saints got a combined 100 yards from TEs Billy Miller and Mark Campbell in Week 5, and TE Michael Gaines had 24 of Detroit’s 150 receiving yards in the loss to Minnesota last week.
