I'm with you on Warner, but 3rd round seems high for an injru question mark in a year with a lot of QB's. Play it by ear. If a great back is sitting there in round 3, grab him...

Damn roninmedia.
That's a great team. I assume an 8 team league, but a great team in any league.

I honestly don't see how you could have Warner as a top 3 QB...3 injuries to one hand...ouch

Sure, he has the talent and the talent around him, but if Warner screws up, Rams go to Bulger. And Warner's career goes down the draaiiiin. Look into Gannon/Manning for a top 3 pick. They are both great consistent QB's

I can agree with Manning, probably above Warner, but Gannon is on an aging team. The Raiders will begin their slide this year. Not even Rice can last forever. I would definitely put Warner ahead of Gannon. I see Warner as regaining his old form, injuries not being an issue. I could be wrong, we'll have to see.

Sleeper

Postby Jeff » Wed Jul 23, 2003 6:23 pm

I have always thought that a sleeper is a player that almost nobody is thinking about that puts up nice numbers. Two of the sleepers that I have on my list are W. Chrebet and J. Jurevicious.

Jurevicious to me is starting to resemble a P. Jeffers before he got hurt. Chrebet had a nice finish to last year's season and with Coles gone will get some extra looks.

Don't see many of what I'd call true sleepers listed so far. James and Warner might be value picks, but no way are they sleepers. Stallworth and Canidate, on the other hand , probably qualify as sleepers. True sleepers are those possibly undrafted individuals, who go almost completely under the radar. Two years a go I struck gold on Booker. Last season I hit on Porter. This year I feel an overlooked Wr might be Bradford. He was having a very fine year , with a rookie Qb and no running game, until the Def Coordinators figured out he was the only offensive weapon on the team. Once it was discovered he was the only show in town , they doubled him, and the teams offense floundered. This season they have a more experienced Qb, with some chemistry with Corey. They have a bigger tougher back in Mack, and they have Andre Johnson on the otherside drawing the attention. I feel Bradford could truly explode. He will be available at will in the draft, thus a ture sleeper, and he could easily perform at the level of a #2 Wr.. If you find yourself in the last round or two in your draft and he's still available, think about him a bit! ;-D

My sleeper would be Kordell Stewart

Heck he was going as high as rd 4 in last years drafts. This year
he is not being mentioned. While he may not be a superstar,
his running will obviously help soften the number of ints he throws
and his inconsistent play.

Kordell Stewart was a very good fantasy QB a few years ago.
Now I believe people can get him cheaper than ever.
