Summary

Tight End Rank: #182All Players: #1210
Schefller was released by the Lions early in the season. It was a bit of a surprise but the Lions had some younger options they wanted to get playing time. Scheffler wasn't picked up by another team and will look to land a roster spot this coming year. Scheffler has a pretty good track record as a backup tight end. He has four season with 40 or more receptions and three 500-yard seasons. Scheffler has big-play ability at the tight end position. He is a great athlete with good speed and the ability to make plays after the catch. Scheffler is a tough cover over the middle as evident by his career 12.4 yards per reception average.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Scheffler retired this offseason because of concussion issues.
