Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
Todd Heap was an unexpected release but the Ravens before the start of free agency began. While it looks like Baltimore will go with Ed Dickson, the Cardinals had no problem grabbing Heap in free agency to give their new starter Kevin Kolb another weapon.Heap should have some decent success in his first year with the Cardinals as they are focused on getting the passing game fixed and they planning on using the tight end position more often. That said, Heap is best left off your draft board unless you play in leagues over fourteen teams. The main reason is that while Heap is a nice addition to the Cardinals, his days of begin a respectable fantasy option are behind him. It’s better to go with a younger player with more upside at your draft, and if you need an option like Heap later, you can get him off the waiver wire.

While Todd Heap figures to start for the Ravens, his fantasy value is up in the air as health problems crept up on him again last year, and he has Ed Dickson behind him on the depth chart. While Dickson and Dennis Pitta’s development seemed to be a disappointment, I wouldn’t be surprised if both tight ends come back stronger in their second year.
Look to Dickson as the threat to take away valuable plays from Heap if he should show his coaches he’s ready for regular time on the field. Until that time, Heap will continue to be the starter and is an option off the waiver wire for help during bye weeks or to cover an injury.
Todd Heap has had himself a great NFL career, but his days as a fantasy relevant player are gone. Look for Heap to be a good player on his team but nothing more than a bye week fill in for fantasy.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Todd Heap bounced back in 2009 to post six touchdowns and close to 600 yards receiving as Joe Flacco continued to mature. This was Heap’s second year in a row in which he played all sixteen games as he finally recovered from a nasty back injury.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Heap is getting close to the end of his six year contract, he signed with the Ravens in 2005. With this in mind it’s no wonder why the Ravens selected two productive pass catchers out of college in Ed Dickson (Oregon) and Dennis Pitta (BYU) at the draft.
Because of the talent now behind Heap his days as a fantasy relevant player are all but over with this team as these two youngsters will stunt his stats. By next season, I wouldn’t be surprised if Heap is gone from the Ravens as Dickson and Pitta should be clearly ready to take over in this offense.
Heap has had a great career in Baltimore but the ride is soon ending and fantasy owners shouldn’t look forward to Heap as anything more than a backup in deep leagues.
– Good Quarterback
– Should Be Teams Starter
– Pitta And Dickson Will Limit His Numbers
– On Down Side Of Career
