TE Help

We just got done with the draft (auto draft - couldn't convince the commish to make it a live draft) and I ended up with these two guys: Zach Miller and John Carlson. I don't know much about either and could really use assistance.
Should I stick with them, drop one for Tony Scheffler, or try to make a package (with either Chris Henry, Braylon Edwards or Mark Clayton) and make a play for an Owen Daniels/Chris Cooley type of player? I'd be keeping Larry Fitzgerald and Anthony Gonzalez so I could pretty easily give up any of those other guys.)

John Carlson is actually projected very well this year... is that reliable or should he be the one I offer up as a means to try to upgrade to someone that's tried and true?

Any help/advise is appreciated.

Miller & Carlson are both fine options - low-end TE1s with some upside. They're both better than Scheffler. Daniels & Cooley are both better options, but I wouldn't trade away much to go after them (certainly not Braylon Edwards). I'd stay put with what you have.

I'd stay put too. Miller put up good yardage numbers last year, and is one I'm targeting to be a good value. Carlson is also solid.

Unless you start 2 TE's pick one and drop the other guy (unless you can package and trade one) to pick up someone who helps at a different position. THere are always quality TE's on the t waiver wire and I always laugh at the teams that carry 2 TE's all year.
