Deep Sleepers for the playoff run...

Postby CeeLoGreen » Thu Nov 30, 2006 11:42 am

I am in a 16 team league and am looking for ideas for players that might contribute during fantasy playoffs.

Im thinking guys like M. Bennett (LJ is on pace for his most carries and Herm may want to save him a little for the real playoffs)

J. Norwood (If the Falcons keep sliding, they may want to get an extended look at Norwood for next year)

Anyone have any others? Is there any websites that focus on larger league sleepers?

I think C. Houston and C. Fason can be added to this list. Anyone else have some opinions???

Maybe take a look at the 2 Cleveland back ups Jerome Harrison and I can't remeber the other guys name, they have a chance of doing something, although its a small chance.

I think Fason will succeed if he gets a chance. But I doubt Chester is out more than a week.

Earnest Graham might be worth a look in deeper leagues. He signed a contract extension on Monday, then outrushed Caddy yesterday on half the carries. Caddy's problems from earlier in the year could mysteriously "get worse" and give Graham a good shot.

I am not sure what is up with Ron Dayne in Houston or Marcel Shipp in Arizona, but in deep leagues they should be added.

Maurice Hicks and Buckhalter are two that should be added in case nagging injuries get worse. Moats could re-emerge, but as a Philly fan, I'm kind of doubting it - he hasn't even been suiting due to his boneheadedness on special teams.

Cutler

He didn't wow anyone in his first NFL start, so he should be available. Denver has nice cushy passing matchups in the FF playoffs with the exception of SD, but even in that one, they will need to pass to try and compete.

14 - SD
15 - ARI
16 - CIN

By the time the playoffs come around, he may no longer be a sleeper.

I'm guessing anyone who had room or need for the extra QB depth grabbed him up when he got the starting job, although San Deigo and Cincy aren't exactly the worse Defenses hes still a decent start.

Brandon Marshall, the number three WR for Denver. He had an awesome catch an run on Sunday night for a TD. He had worked all year with Cutler on the second team offense...they seem to have a real connection between them. He looks explosive and Denver at this point is looking for any kind of spark.

norwood for sure, he's obviously got alot of talent and keeper and dynasty leagues is probably already picked up and if not pounce on him, also, and this may seem absolutely ridiculous, don't look too far past mike williams, yes the mike williams that has but one catch this year, he's slowly getting back into the offense, now even though you said you were looking for playoff guys this year, Im expecting him to come around more next year.

Sure he is.... he will do a great job as a change of pace, 3rd down back (ala Marshall Faulk when SJax showed up) to wind down his career.

It's going to be the Norwood show next year. Can't keep that kind of talent down for long.
