Interstorm wrote:Galloway. If he can stay healthy - he'll put up better numbers than Clayton. Also read today that he'll be returning punts (spliting duty on that)...so if your league awards return yardage, that may be a little extra bonus. For a couple years now in Tampa (and before than in Oakland), Gruden offenses have had #1 receivers who post really good numbers. All of Clayton's would have gone to Galloway last year...

...does he get it back this year?

No sleeper comes without risk...but there is a proven trend on that team. Also, Galloway has a trend of his own...but we'll hope that one is broken.

Damn - I just used 'Broken' and "Galloway' in the same sentence!!!


1. Even if healthy, he wouldn't pass up Clayton's #s. Deep threats always have safeties attention. If anything, him having a good year would open up Clayton for bigger #s.

2. If Torrie Cox can just hold onto the football, he'll handle most of the punts this year. Galloway might be a decent option if Cox doesn't get it together, but seeing the way Gruden has handled Galloway with kid gloves in TC, I can't imagine Jon taking a chance on letting him get injured with too many returns. He's the only deep threat on the team.

Donte Stallworth is such a sleeper he's in a coma. A lot good ones on this thread though...

I'd throw in Penny/Coles, Miller, Cooley, Matt Jones (although the hype has pretty much killed that at this point), Warner, Galloway (not a superhigh upside, but should be decent this year), Ricky Williams (most likely starts getting showcased right around the playoff run).

My super silly sleepers of the year: Mushin & Stephen Davis. Mushin blows up this year & finishes in the top 15, Davis stays healthy (well, healthy for him) and finishes in the top 20. You heard it here first...if it turns out to be wrong I'll go back in 10 weeks & edit this post. :-D
Praise Ricky!

Wanna talk deep sleeper?

Jerry Rice

No I don't have him on any of my teams, but if my backups go down with injury I would take the greatest reciever of all time lining up in the slot.

Some guys I got in my draft that i like as "super deep sleepers" are William Green, Matt Jones and Alvin Pearman. Not so deep that I also got is Charlie Rogers, especially for his draft position. I got him at 10:03(the other 3 after him).

I also think David Boston, Randle El, Eric Shelton(because of Davis' situation and Foster's history(although I think Foster's could have a good year if he can stay healthy)), Ryan Moats and Joe Jurevicious are interesting.

great wr that is getting drafted later than he should is Steve Smith of carolina.

No one is talking about ron dayne but if mike anderson gets injured early i see him steping in before tatum does. dayne has looked good in preseason but more importantly he played in a one cut system in wisconsin which is the kind of run blocking denver runs.
