just kinda thinking here

Postby Guru13 » Fri May 12, 2006 8:34 am

now, we all know who our first, second round RBs are, you know up there with LT and LJ and SA, heh, but anyways, what about your guys that may not be drafted as high, but may also have some good fantasy value, just a list of some...sleepers i guess you could call em'

1. probably not the best back on this list, but could surprise some people, I think he will be forgotten by many people, i would love to have him in some later rounds...J. Addai, good back, on a great team that is known for having great RBs, could put up some huge numbers if he gets the starting job which is why he may not be picked up early.

2. Some people are gonna forget about him cause of reggie bush, but don't count out duece, if he can stay healthy, im hearing they are gonna use a 2 HB backfield, and duece will get the ball quite a bit...atleast so I hear.

3. Ahman Green, again, he needs to stay healthy, but with an improved defense, and slim to no receivers, he may get to stretch his legs a little bit for the first time in the last couple years, again, very risky, but possibly a late round guy, I know alot of guys that won't touch him.

Ill finish up later, I'm in first hour at school, getting ready to go to second...school sucks.

>I don't think Addai is much of a sleeper. People know that he went to the high-powered Colts and are willing to take a gamble on him.

>I like the Ahman Green call. He has really fallen in a lot of drafts.

Add my own guy - Curtis Martin. Lot of owners will write him off cuz he's old and coming off a down year. But Martin is not the kind of guy that is just gonna go out quietly, he has a great work ethic and a future HOFer. With the offensive line help and more quarterback stability, C-Mart could be in for a big year.

Addai will end up being over-hyped if anything

Duece...eh, he's shown propensity for injury, and there'll be a big push for Bush

Green=Washed Up

I like the Martin call too. he really doesnt have anyone pushing him

this really sounds like just another sleeper RB thread, but i like Cedric Cobbs in Denver, Maroney in New England (Dillon will go down) and Barber in Dallas

Not sure what this list represents... :-? The bolded guys are 1st-2nd rounders without a doubt, and a couple more than might be considered 2nd round guys.

I got Ahman in the 5th of a 12 team league and I like the way my team looks.

I still think Kevin Jones can put it all together and I've seen him drop to fringe top 20-25 status. I realize the risk involved, but I do think if he's healthy, he can repeat the kind of numbers he was putting up in the second half of his rookie year.
