Fantasy Football Tips - Tight Ends Percentage Drafted

In fantasy baseball, punting categories is a common strategy. In fantasy football, the equivalent is punting a position. One does this by waiting until the latest possible round to fill that position. It is typically done with Kickers, but Defense and TE are also viable choices. It is these positions that most benefit from my Percent Drafted (%D). By seeing who is not selected 100% of the time, a fantasy footballer can construct a worst case scenario for the punted position.

A look at the TE list of players were were not selected in 100% of the Mock Draft Central Drafts, one can see that there is a chance that even Philadelphia's L.J. Smith could be avaible in the last couple/trhee rounds. More likely would be Tennessee's Bo Scaife, Oakland's Zach Miller or Miami's Dave Martin. Any of those three (in that order) would be acceptable to me if it means I picked-up a handcuff RB or quality sleeper WR like Green Bay's Ruvell Martin or Seattle's D.J. Hackett.
