News: The Bills have claimed tight end Mickey Shuler off waivers from the Raiders.
Analysis: Buffalo is interested in tight ends to fill in for Scott Chandler until the big guy comes back from a torn ACL. However he's caught two passes in his three-year career and is unlikely to help Fantasy owners crush their leagues.
News: The Raiders have released cornerback Adrian Bushell, defensive back Akwasi Owusu-Ansah and tight end Mickey Shuler.
Analysis: These guys weren't expected to be great Fantasy contributors in the first place. Keep them off of rosters.
News: Former Vikings tight end Mickey Shuler signed with the Raiders Monday, according to his agent. Shuler was with Minnesota each of the last two seasons before being released at the end of training camp.
Analysis: Shuler was signed by Oakland to add some depth to the position but he is not expected to make a major impact on Sunday's. He has just two catches in his three-year career and should continue to be ignored in all formats at this point in the season.
News: Dolphins TE Anthony Fasano (knee) missed his third straight practice Friday and has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Patriots. Mickey Shuler will get the start in his absence.
Analysis: Shuler had the first catches of his career in Week 16 against the Lions, totaling two receptions for 44 yards. The Patriots have played pretty well against TEs in 2010, so Shuler is nothing more than a desperation Fantasy option.
News: Dolphins rookie TE Mickey Shuler made two catches for 44 yards in a Week 16 loss to the Lions, his first two NFL grabs.
Analysis: With starting TE Anthony Fasano going down with a knee injury in the third quarter, Shuler saw more time on offense Sunday than he usually does, and made the most of his time on the field. He's just a backup for the Dolphins though and will remain a non-factor in Fantasy play heading into Week 17 at New England.
News: The Dolphins have claimed TE Mickey Shuler off waivers. He's expected to provide depth for them.
Analysis: Shuler is unlikely to land any playing time behind starter Anthony Fasano. Keep him off of Fantasy rosters.
News: The Vikings waived TE Mickey Shuler on Wednesday in order to make room for WR Hank Baskett.
Analysis: Shuler had no Fantasy value before this move, as he was buried on the depth chart. Continue to ignore him.
