In fairness to KC, I'll tell you what I told her. Picking an RB as a "sleeper" after the main guy goes down is not really an interesting or difficult pick. Certainly not something to brag about (didn't see any mention of the other guys you mentioned...hmmm...). He was obviously going to start, and going against the worst run D in the league. Lemme guess, this week Droughns is your sleeper after Jacobs got hurt. Taylor was probably owned already in most 12-team leagues too. Anyways, we don't need to start another chain of "Jabba is a jerk" posts, but just thought I'd be fair to KC. I probably would have let it slide if you hadn't started patting yourself on the back.

You are right..., a guy who has been named starter is not really a sleeper, but the thing that I really want to do is put the best player in most free agencies on the people's head, so they can pick up a guy who will actually will give them points..., at that time, Taylor wasn't owned by most of the leagues' teams, but now, I doubt that he isn't owned by most of them, what I do is not really put a sleeper name, but is more like an opinion which tells you to grab a big player out of the free agency, but if I can't call it sleeper, how can I call it?

They are generally referred to waiver claims of the week or pickups of the week (Yahoo!) or something like that I think.

Taylor was owned in most leagues... well over 50%. I'm shocked he was "unowned" in any 12 team leagues. I understand it in 10 team leagues, but barely.

and Droughns against the Vikings run D might not be the best call either.

I agree with you Jabba. KC picks players that are available in leagues. Hence her less than 5% rule. I assumed that every player ariel mentioned last week were his "sleeper" picks meaning they were in for a big week, not that people should get them in free agency. That is kind of absurd. The players he mentioned should have been owned in most leagues. I know for a fact Chester was.

I am glad Chester had a great game and you were right about him ariel. As everyone knows I bleed purple. The Vikes are my team. I actually kind of wished we had played a good game and lost. The best thing for this team is to get a QB, a Corner, and a new head coach. A better draft pick can help get one of those.
