Week 1 TE

PPR league.

Tony Scheffler (@Cincy) or Heath Miller (vs. Titans)

Miller had 6 catches in the Titans game last year, but you'd think the Steelers might use him more as a blocker in this game in pass protection. Scheffler has looked awesome in the preseason.

Funny that the TE thread is the only one with no replies. Poor TEs.

I think you gotta go with the matchup here and use Scheffler. I agree that Miller will be used a lot as a blocker this season.

Gotta be Scheffler. i just picked him up off waivers in my league for this week. The Steelers like using their TEs as blockers, Scheffler is a pure pass catching TE, Brandon Marshall missed a lot of practice/pre season and they have a new QB - I wouldn't be surprised if Scheffler was the primary target for this week. Also, the Bengals LBs/S aren't anywhere near the quality of Tennessee.
