TEs Winslow, Clark won’t have much draft value

There was some movement at the tight end position on Monday, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Dallas Clark and traded Kellen Winslow to the Seattle Seahawks. Unfortunately, both moves are likely to be much ado about nothing from a fantasy perspective.

Clark, once an elite tight end, has been limited to a combined 17 games in the last two seasons due to injuries. He was also terribly exposed as a blocker in 2011, which means he’ll end up splitting time in Tampa Bay with Luke Stocker. Considering the team’s projected run-based offense, Stocker, a better blocker, will keep Clark off the field in most non-passing sets.

The best owners can expect from Clark is as a fantasy reserve, but even that could be pushing the limits of his value.

As for Winslow, he now heads to a place where receivers’ statistics go to die. The Seahawks already have Zach Miller, who was invisible in fantasy land last season, so it will be tough for Winslow to make an impact. While I still like him a tad more than Clark in deeper leagues, you really don’t want either of these guys starting for your fantasy team.
