2013 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

TE Visanthe Shiancoe was a red zone monster in 2009, finishing with 11 touchdowns. However, as the Vikings' passing game struggled in 2010, V-Shank's fantasy appeal came crashing down as he finished with only 2 TDs last season. In his past three seasons, the 8-year vet out of Morgan State has averaged only 564 yds/season (under 40 yds/game), making him best drafted as a TE2, considering the Vikings added rookie Kyle Rudolph in round 2 of April's draft. We expect Minnesota to employ more 2-tight end sets in Bill Musgrave's offense, but we don't foresee the same level of success as New England enjoyed last season (with rookies Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski) as Christian Ponder is no Tom Brady. Shiancoe is now 30 years old and will be a free agent at the end of 2011, meaning he should be motivated to prove that 2009 wasn't a fluke. He is yet another player that could see his role expand dramatically (especially in the red zone) if Sidney Rice is elsewhere.
