Are there any rookies that r showing potential that r sleepe

Are there any rookies right now that have shown they could gain alot of points on a fantasy team that may have been overlooked or have been underrated?

Mike Walker - WR, Jacksonville - 3rd Rd pick may start as WR2
Kolby Smith - RB, KC - good camp + LJ holdout = opportunity
James Jones - WR, GB - Favre will throw it, and Driver and Jennings are both already dinged

Tony Hunt
Steve Smith (Giants)
Garrett Wolfe

(and I like Kolby Smith recommendation, he'll get his chances in a woeful offense this year)

are they worth watching to pick up now, or are any of them have to be picked up right now?

Mike Walker, Kolby Smith, and Steve Smith are adds in deep leagues. The rest are just watch list.

Ken Darby had 80 yds rushing yesterday. If Caddy gets hurt, he'll get a chance.

Definitely Kolby Smith... he's one of my favorite deep sleepers. Michael Bennett's obviously a "career backup" type of guy and if LJ holds out and/or gets hurt, I think Kolby will see most of the work.

WR Robert Meachem caught a TD in teh Saints pre-season game last night and plays for an explosive offense. Could be worth watching.

News on Mike Walker:


Aug 10 Michael C. Wright, of the Florida Times-Union, reports Jacksonville Jaguars WR Mike Walker (finger) dislocated the middle finger on his right hand sometime during training camp, and is likely why he has been having trouble with dropped passes during practice.


Might want to avoid him, he's deep down the depth chart at this point. There's an undrafted receiver there you might want to watch: Charles Sharon, who has a much better position on the depth chart currently.

at this point they are on my watch list, I'd recommend watching them during preseason. I'd wait until they are at least on the 53 man roster.
