Question

I am quite surprised at the seemingly lack of interest in Zach Millier, TE, Oakland. 6'5", 255, and 25 years old. Miller had 60 catches for 685 yards and five touchdowns last season and was selected to the Pro Bowl as an alternate.

Stats are quite consistent;

No, that long string of horrible QBs is what screwed you over many times in Fantasy. Then he started getting hurt, but by that time no one should have been drafting him anyway.

You can't gauge real talent on fantasy. AB was a kickass fantasy QB. Nuff said.

Things can change pretty damn fast in todays NFL.
Tampa still isn't going to be a Super Bowl contender any time soon, so I don't think that is a valid comparison. TB improved a lot, but in a division with us and Atlanta both peaking... Nope. It's like Houston, no matter how much they improve, they won't be contenders until Peyton retires. Carolina and Tampa have two great teams to deal with. They won't be contenders for a long time, and there isn't much they can do to change that.

True...

And some of these signings should help in the real world..

Saints have now re-signed Jermon Bushrod, Lance Moore, Scott Shanle, Roman Harper, Pierson Prioleau, Leigh Torrence, Chris Reis, Danny Clark, and Jo-Lonn Dunbar...

Plus, they've added RB Darren Sproles, FB Korey Hall and OLB Will Herring to geaux with the early offseason signing of DT Shaun Rogers...

The Saints have lost Remi Ayodele and Usama Young...

He's good, but Oakland didn't exactly have WR to throw...

Saints have Jimmy Graham and will bring back Thomas, hopefully...

JP; Nor did he have a good, make that an adequate, QB. Still consistent numbers and if my memory serves me, Payton like to carry 4 TE and one on the PS.

I am not sure of the $$$ Miller is looking for, but given he is "good"...just surprised he hasn't attracted more attention.

He was a Raider, that is enough of a reason to not want him on the team. I want nothing touched by Al Davis.

That could be the 800lb gorilla in the room - money asked for...

Agree that he's one better TE, and was surprised teams with young QB's haven't gone after him...

Maybe the Cardinals now that they have Kolb...

Could the Eagles be finished?

Will be interesting to see where he lands...

Could the Saints be interested in Olin Kreutz?

Goodwin is not signed, yet; maybe their waiting to see how this plays out in Chi-town???
