Best Late Round Flier

Postby gtabaplayr » Sun Jul 24, 2005 4:16 pm

Lets say a 10/12 team league. Who are some of the guys you are picking up late in hopes that they breakout and possibly become a starter for your team.

Last few rounds of the draft when you are drafting backups or kickers and defenses.

Justin McCareins is a guy who I have high hopes for this year, both as a Jets fan and a fantasy football player...

Michael Jenkins could be good.

Late, Very Late

Here is my list of late round studs:

Jeff Garcia: Does anyone really believe that Joey Harrington is gonna suddenly blossom into the Kurt Warner 0f 2001?

Reche Caldwell: He was on pace for a 10 td season before he messed up his knee. Gates will see far more attention from safeties, corners, and linebackers, leaving Caldwell matched up in single coverage. Mcardell is long overdue, and Vincent Jackson is still a work in progress.

Darius Watts: Rod Smith ain't getting any younger and Ashley Lelie is strictly a deep threat. The Broncos need a big, physical receiver who can work the middle of the field. He may not produce consistently until late in the year but he could be a gem worth taking a flier on.

Najeh Davenport: If anything happens to A. Green ND would step right in and post decent stats. He could serve as a nice bye week filler.

Roddy White and Michael Jenkins: I have a strong feeling that one. or both of these guys is going to raise the Atlanta passing game from the dead. Training camp will be the litmus test.

Kevin Curtis: Issaac Bruce is getting a little long in the tooth, and someone needs to step up alongside Tory Holt. Curtis posted good stats in limited action last year.

McCareins is and has always been a hard worker. I'm liking him this year to hook with Penny if you have him. ;-D

Battle and Garcia are both nice calls. I think David Boston is very solid late round value. This guy can be an elite WR, he's just been banged up these past few years. He's playing for a contract now and I think he could be gold. Mike Anderson is at least worth a flier too as of right now.
