RB: Hard to argue with Michael Turner producing more than his current ADP. I'm also keeping a very close eye on Houston to see what happens there. Grabbing all three if you can get them late may not be a bad idea... the result might be a solid RB.

WR: DJ Hackett nearly went "undrafted" in my auction, until I grabbed him for a buck at the end. Potential for a very nice #3 WR.


Yeah, I like Schaub too. Schaub, Delhomme, and Garrard are going to explode this year.

Yep. Players who are routinely taken in the 5th and 6th rounds are hard to call sleepers. Kind of like me picking the Colts as my sleeper to win the Superbowl this year.

Nice to see guys with less than 10 posts total come into this forum slinging mud and name calling though. Gotta admire the sack on an (#*($*# like that. :-*

QB: Schaub, Rodgers - both have the tools to put up some big numbers and aren't very high on the rankings. The problem is that both have durability issues as well. I would prefer to have Schaub over Rodgers because you can handcuff Schaub with Rosenfels and be confident of good production based on what Sage was able to do after Schaub got hurt last year.

RB: There aren't many RBs that you can really call sleepers. Everyone knows about the RBs that are out there. I like these guys' chances to put up some decent numbers if they can get on the field on a consistent basis - Slaton, Norwood, Lorenzo Booker. I would love to put Pierre Thomas in that mix, but I don't think the Saints coaches see as much in him as all of the fans do. If Deuce gets hurt, Pierre will likely see the goalline touches, but that will only be enough to make him valuable as a flex player at best since the Saints are going to employ a fairly even RBBC no matter what happens.

WR: Kevin Walter, Robert Meachem, Ernest Wilford. Walter because he played well when Andre Johnson was hurt, and I think they will be able to spread it around enough that Walter can have some good games even without an AJ injury. Meachem because he could be the guy consistently facing single coverage opposite Colston and Shockey (you have to watch training camp reports, though, because he may not win that starting job - it's a better pick in a keeper/dynasty). Wilford because he has been a TD machine in a crappy offense before. I think that MIA will find a way to generate some production, and I don't have confidence in Ginn's ability to be the go-to guy at receiver.

TE: Crumpler, Dustin Keller. Crumpler because he has been very good in the past, and VY is going to lean on him. Keller because he plays the type of game that yields good fantasy TEs, and I think that NYJ wants to create mismatches with him. The guys that are mismatched are the guys that score TDs.

K: just kidding. I'm not picking a sleeper kicker. :-b

Anymore name calling in this thread and it will be trashed and warnings will be given to all the name callers. I don't care who started what. At least 4 people in this thread have called each other names. It ends here.

My sleepers:

QB - none. Not a year to be reaching for any QB. You'll do just fine drafting a QB in the 10th round.

RB - Chris Johnson Ten - the one guy with the skills to be this year's MJD. LenDale does not inspire confidence so Johnson may get a shot.
Supersleeper - Tim Hightower Ari. Edge is about to fall off a cliff and Hightower may be the one to take the starting job.
also Steve Slaton Hou - Green is about to fall off a cliff as well and Chris Brown has never been able to stay healthy or get into the endzone regularly when he was healthy.

WR - Anthony Gonzalez Indy - not really a sleeper but surely going to take Marvin's spot in the next few years. Dynasty gold.
supersleeper - Chris Henry FA - Indefinitely suspended but all charges dropped on July 14. If he finds a home he could be explosive.

TE - Greg Olsen Chi - even without a real QB should finish the year as a top 10 TE.

You know, I never thought about Henry. I may grab him at the end of my dynasty. I could see him wind up in Dallas or Tennessee (how funny would that be) if he gets reinstated.

Now that R.Williams and Porter are both out for at least training camp in Jax how about Troy Williamson or Northcutt. One of those guys should put up good numbers if Porter and RW are slow to recover. I don't even think that they are being drafted in 15 rd drafts I've done.
