being a homer perhaps i read about Gore more than the average person. I think he's more than a sleeper right now. But his upside is limited. The niners offense still has a lot to prove.

Andre Johnson for me is NOT a sleeper. I had him last year and even though I was dissapointed with his performace, last year's stats have no bearing as to whether or not I will draft him high this year. I honestly believe that his injury (calf ?) hurt him a lot more than we were led to believe. The only question marks for me right now is whether Moulds steals catches, or allows single coverage on both sides.

As always, the "sleeper" picks tend to depend on your definition of sleeper. In my case I'm picking players that I think given the highsight of the 2006 season you would pick at least 2 rounds higher than they went in your 10 team draft. Please note this is far from my "ideal" team. Also note this is based on mocks I've done in the last couple of months. I assume this will change closer to September.

QB: Jon Kitna/David Carr
RB: Ahman Green (too many people have written him off with the success of Gado)
RB: Deuce McAllister/Ron Dayne (I can't believe people still think Bell will be the starter)
WR: Koren Robinson (easy top 15 pick going in the mid-late rounds)
WR: Brandon Lloyd (I know folks who still think he's the #3 in Washington)
WR: Samie Parker (just a hunch)
TE: Heath Miller/Kellen Winslow (a possible WR starter now?)
D: Atlanta (only injuries stopped this crew last year)
K: nobody (who would pick a kicker earlier than the last round?)

yeah, I wouldnt call AJ a sleeper. And Gore only due to SF's crappy team. I wouldnt really call Roy Williams a sleeper either.

I define sleepers as those guys who start out on your bench before the season starts, and then surprise you and become a starter.

If I had to pick a sleeper team this year, it would look like this:

QB: Charlie Frye
RB: Marion Barber, Ryan Moats
WR: Mark Bradley, Michael Clayton, Antonio Bryant
TE: Marcus Pollard
K: no idea
Def: Green Bay

I think every one of these guys has the potential to surprise alot of people this year, and they are all guys who fall pretty far, and in redrafts arent even being picked at all alot of the time

I think people are writing off Ahman more so because of the injury and he still isnt running, not so much of the success of Gado.

I do like the Samie Parker pick ;-D





Heres mine


QB- Rivers/Frye
RB-Moats/Barber/Greg Jones
WR-Samie Parker/Rod Gardner/Mark Clayton/Reggie Brown
TE-Hilton/Wiggins

I left out Ahman. Let's not forget that just 3 seasons ago he rushed for 1,883 yards/15 TDs and caught for 367 yards/5 TDs. If he can even attain have of that this season, he's definitely worth a late round pick. As for AJohnson, he's not a sleeper to most, but I think this will be more of a breakout year for him, so you could call that a sleeper.

3 seasons is a long time in RB years. look at the seasons guys like Priest, Faulk and Dillon were having 3 years ago...look at their value now
