The article presents advice for fantasy football players. Other than Antonio Gates, the tight ends far too inconsistent, even players such as Tony Gonzalez, Jeremy Shockey, Alge Crumpler and Jason Witten. Landing a good third running back or a team's undisputed No. 1 wide receiver is much smarter. It doesn't matter where someone else has a player ranked or whether your pick goes against conventional thinking. Even if Jamal Lewis is perceived as a sure-fire first-rounder, the point is to look smart at the end of the season, not on draft day.
