need advice on sleepers

Postby tallzman » Thu May 20, 2004 2:56 pm

Which sleepers would benefit me the most in a league where the scoring system is 25 yards rushing/recieving, 1 reception, and 50 yards passing = 1 point. 1 TD = 6 points.

Reception points favor top TEs more than anyone. Top WRs might slide up a few spots, but top TEs slide up entire rounds with that scoring.

Agreed.

And they aren't by any means sleepers, but this also increases the value of Tomlinson, Holmes, and McAllister even more....

Also, Ricky Williams and Ahman Green are used in the passing game quite a bit. Where as Jamal Lewis is rarely used to catch out of the backfield....

Just some things to keep in mind.

The problem with your question is that knowing the scoring system does not really impact which sleepers are good prospects. The very nature of a sleeper is that it is someone who hasn't done much to date, but *might* be in a better situation to put up good numbers this year. Knowing your scoring system doesn't really change anything too much, because it is all still a crap shoot.

BUT, some good picks that might slip lower than they should are:

RB - Duce Staley (he's slipping to the middle rounds even though he's a decent STARTING RB)

QB - Jeff Garcia (he's not at the top of anyone's QB list, but with the sheer number of targets he's gonna have next year, he might come up big)

WR - Devard Darling (although not touted as one of the top college prospects, he is a damn fine WR and might be able to become the number one guy in BAL)

With 1 point a Reception Charlie Garner may be a good option at the RB position
