The staff members at Footballguys are full of opinions. In a Faceoff, we allow two members to voice their opinions on a specific player. One picked the high side, and the other took the low side.
High Side by Chad Parsons
Coby Fleener left the friendly confines by playing with Andrew Luck (at least before Luck missed significant time in 205) and landed with Drew Brees in New Orleans this offseason. The Saints as a team have the second-most receptions, yards, and touchdowns from tight ends in the NFL (Patriots No.1) over the past five seasons. The margin to No.3 (Dallas) is not even close, especially for touchdowns. Even looking at solely 2015 with Jimmy Graham out of the picture and mid-30s veteran Ben Watson as the starter, the Saints fed tight ends 101 receptions and 11 touchdowns, both top-5 marks across the NFL. Sean Payton and Drew Brees are tight end fantasy producers.
