Yea he could potentially be a steal. I don't know if he's really a steal in the 7th or 8th round though because he is not going to score very much.

There is just too many other guys around who also score for him to have a steve smith like year, look at carolina, there were no #2 wr's threatening him and Stephen davis wasnt a huge threat.

washington has Moss and Portis, who both should have great years, i really cant see brandon lloyd being te biggest sleeper, but i can see him numbers increasing this year

I could easily see Lloyd having a better year than Santana.

It's a little hard to trust a #2 receiver from Washington... If he was around past the 9th round, I will consider him.

Since when did Washington have a great offense? :-? He should be pretty good for Washington, but I am more worried that he and Santanta will have similar numbers to the point where neither are worth much from a fantasy perspective.

i thought this thread would be about shaun alexander. :-B

lloyd is a nice receiver, but i'm not sure i want to rely on him for much. i think he'll be very hit and miss this year. very inconsistent, but he could score huge when he goes off.

I highly doubt that.

But I agree with the thread starter. :-D (althought Lloyd isnt anywhere near as fast as Randy Moss)

Lloyd will probably be a servicable 3rd or 4th fantasy WR. Santana is probably a good #2. I think his number will be hurt a little by Lloyd but should still get around 75 catches, 1300 yards and 7 TDs.

Why? The thread title didn't say anything about overrated....

How long until one of those threads gets started?
