    Re: Kleinsasser or Wiggins?

    There is no question that Wiggins is the receiving threat and Jimmy K is the blocker. We will run a lot of two tight end sets and Jimmy will get a few catches, but he will provide a lot more from the blocking sets and from the fullback spot here and there.

    Jimmy has got a solid place on this team but it won't be catching passes like Wiggins.

    What Wiggins did last season was unreal. 71-705 9.9 avg.
    I don't believe Klienny can come close to those numbers.
    His best is 46-401 8.9 avg.

    Now until Wiggins joined the Vikes he had only 50-482 yds combined

    Their careers compared look similar
    Kline-125-1113-8.9 avg-5 TD's
    Wiggins-121-1187-9.8 avg-12TD's
    (source NFL.com)

    But I think Wiggins is a whole different level of receiver than Klien is.

    And I love Jimmy, just my take on it.

    Re: Kleinsasser or Wiggins?

    Wiggins had a breakout year last year leading our team in catches. However I think that Kleinsasser could be just is good, if not better than Wiggins if we would actually use him more often. Kleinsasser has good hands and will just run you over. I really hope that we use him a lot this year.

    don't put jimmy in the same category as Bennett. They are both calibur TEs and JK can be used as a FB too for blocking. Just b/c he was hurt one time for the year doesn't mean he will be every year.

    Re: Kleinsasser or Wiggins?

    Wiggins is the true TE...but Jimmy K is so versatile. They can use him in double TE situations, as a slot receiver, or as a FB. Either way, anything that gives us more options is a good thing.

    Re: Kleinsasser or Wiggins?

    Two tight end sets will be used a lot I think, because both guys are big targets for Daunte, and Bennett usually runs well out of 2 tight end sets. Also, Kleinsasser plays Fullback as well as tight end, so we'll see him both places. Kleinsasser is a much better blocker than Wiggins, we really missed him a lot last year. He's almost like another lineman, so we'll see him in more running situations than Wiggins. Nothing wrong with having two good tight ends though!
