Pollard is on my 'avoid' list.
My thoughts: Often considered a second tier TE, Pollardís fantasy numbers hit their peak in 2001 (739/8). His TDs have declined the past three years, and he hasnít stayed healthy enough to play sixteen games since 2001. With the continued emergence of Dallas Clark, and Pollardís age, I think he has seen his best days.
That said, Putzier should get his chances as the receiver of the TE corps. I think I'd roll the dice on Putzier.
