Ponder's really looking for him tonight...5 catches for 79 yards and a score already. Is this the hot tight end pick up for the week?

Seems like it. I remember a couple years ago this guy was somewhat fantasy relevant... in SEA I believe? Glad to see him get an opportunity again. Of course with the volatility of the MIN QB situation.... who knows if it'll be consistent.

I felt better about him while Ponder was still in the game. Now I'm curious to see what his usage will be with Cassel under center, or if Ponder will be back.

In a couple of my leagues, players don't lock once they start playing, so you can pick up free agents anytime - even in the middle of a game. Makes for a lot of mid-week sneaky pickups.

And nope...dislocated shoulder for Ponder. SMH

If they turn back to Freeman, back to the waiver wire Carlson goes!

Not to derail from the thread, but I actually prefer it. It's a format that rewards very active managers - especially those that watch games.

If your team needs a TE you seriously need to take a look at Carlson. It's not like he is some unknown dude, he had a few productive season back in Seattle. Could be a solid starting TE for your team ROS

QB: Nick Foles

Rudolph was racking up targets the last 3 games, I actually snagged him the week he got injured. Now Carlson comes in and gets the same heavy dose of targets, I could see him continue. He was a solid fantasy TE option in Seattle but got hurt, maybe he is finally rounding back into form.

I might just have to get him and drop that bum Fleener. I did love his targets last week. He seems to be Ponder's first option.

Plus he has a "revenge" matchup against his former team this week

The last game was a fluke. If you somehow think he's going to put up better numbers than Rudolph was, you're going to be sadly mistaken.

Carlson is waivers. He's that guy you stream in a 2 TE league

Not really. Been starting Fleener since I lost Finley and he's been disappointing. Carlson is a big target and Ponder has the history of always looking at the TE. It's the TY show in Indy. I guess I'm going out on a limb but I think Carlson has more upside in that offense.
