Possible sleeper??

Postby redbeard86 » Tue Jun 21, 2011 1:01 am

I was going over the nfl draft for possible late round draft picks and i came across Delone Carter. I know he played at Syracuse, but didn't really follow how well he played. For those who don't know, he was taken in the 4th round by the colts. Would anyone happen to know if he could jump at least RB3 over Mike Hart or Javarris James?

While nobody knows for certain obviously (anything can happen in the blink of an eye in fantasy football, I dont mind Delone Carter as a possile sleeper. In fact, I grabbed him late 1st rd in a rookie dynasty draft (1.11). He comes into a good situation, with Addai being a possible free agent (thought i dont see him leaving Indy this year). Donald Brown has shown nothing, and Javarris James is/was a one year short yardage specialist. Carter is a bruising physical back that fills a need in Indy, and in that offense, as long as Manning is still ticking, could be fantasy relevant by mis season....specifically if Addai gos down to injury again.

Good Luck! ;-D

Yes, definitely consider Mr. Carter a sleeper pick not only for this year, but beyond. Has a great opportunity to take over as the main back if Addai decides to leave at the end of this year.

He is being drafted in the late 1st or early 2nd in dynasty league rookie drafts so he is on the radar. He will gain momentum if Addai ends up walking leaving only Brown to really beat out. He may be listed as RB5 right now but I think he should enter the season as the RB3 is Brown and Addai are on the Colts roster.
