Sleeper WRs and general strat

Postby 2times » Tue Aug 13, 2002 1:15 am

Drafting later tonite, I've never done a football league before, but most of u from the baseball cafe will recognize me.

On to my question though, what WRs will have the best value in the rounds 6-12?

In my league we're starting 2 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 RB/WR, 1 K, 1 TE, and 1 D, so I'm looking to lock up my QB/RB situation in the first 5 rounds, thinking that WR is the least predictable position offensively (and QB the shallowest) . Does anybody have any advice on sleepers I might be able to get this late in the draft and what do you think of my strategy to wait on the WR until later in the draft?

Generally, this sounds quite good, but don't let a stud WR drop too far. Guys like Amani Toomer or Plaxico Burress can have good value in the middle rounds, maybe you can get Chris Chambers, there are a lot of guys worth picking and in most leagues you don't have to gamble on injury risks, just pick the safe ones like Toomer who produce year in, year out

I DON'T KNOW IF MANY WILL AGREE BUT I HAVE A FEELING PEERLESS PRICE COULD BE THE BIGGEST SLEEPER AT WR THIS YEAR. HE CAME OUT PRETTY WELL LAST YEAR AND NOW HE HAS BLEDSOE TO THROW THE DEEP BALL TO HIM. HE ALSO HAS MOULDS OPPOSITE HIM ALLOWING HIM TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MATCH UPS. IF HE'S AVAILABLE LATE GRAB HIM AND YOU'LL BE HAPPY. ALSO LOOK AT MOULDS I THINK THEY WILL BE A GREAT WR UNIT THIS YEAR.

Don't forget about Ed McCaffrey. With a bit of luck, he'll slip more than he should, and make a nice mid-round find.

If you are looking for a good mid-round WR, look no further than Robert Ferguson of the Packers. Opposite Terry Glenn, many think he is sure to have a breakout season. Also, with Glenn's questionable durability, who knows, Ferguson may become the go-to guy for Brett Favre, who is still in my mind a premier fantasy QB.

Don't leave out some of the rookiees this year either...I think D'Wayne Bates (Min) / Javon Walker (GB) look promising...And even Peter Warrick (Cin) would be a good sleeper...My league just drafted the same way you described and we still have Warrick, Morton, Gardner, and Troy Brown listed as free agents...I can't say it'll work that way in your league, but sometimes people pass up a diamond in the rough...
