i completely agree
and i love how they mention both corey dillon and maroney as value pickups. choose one!
I'm not sure either of you know what a sleeper is.
Lewis has an ADP of 28th overall. Early 3rd round isn't a sleeper, it's RB2. And yes as an RB2 he could be a bust.
People have different definitions for sleeper. I think a lot of people view a sleeper as someone who they think will significantly out-produce their draft position.
Jamal Lewis in the 3rd round would imply a RB2, but he has the potential to lead the league in rushing, which I would say meets the criteria of significantly out-producing his draft position. So I don't mind when people call him a sleeper because I know what they are talking about.
If you want to talk about guys you pick in the 10th round or later, refer to them as deep sleepers and we will all know what you are talking about.
