No Name..

Postby footballfreak449 » Sun May 30, 2004 7:07 pm

In your league, every person drafting has that one sleeper who they really wanna draft, and they know no one else will, because he is pretty much a no-name(or maybe it's just me :-?). Anyways, mine last year was Adrian Peterson, RB/CHI. In his first year he was 3rd stringer behind Thomas and Johnson, but still managed 100-some yards and a TD on just 19 carries. And coming into last year, Thomas was way down there on everyone's cheat sheets, because of his bad year even when he was healthy, which would open up the door for AP (or the A-Train as they called him in GSU, seriously, they did). But, there was only enough room for one A-Train in Chicago, and Thomas won the job and had a decent year. Now this year, they bring in Thomas Jones to split carries, or maybe do it all, with Thomas. Is there any hope for my man AP? Do you even know who he is?

I don't think AP has any chance this year. They didn't bring in Thomas Jones for nothing.

My big sleeper that almost no one is taking this year is Rashaun Woods. He could turn out to be this year's Boldin.

I don't like any of the Chicago RBs - including Adrian Peterson.

ESPN.com has AP as the 5th RB on their Depth chart :-?
He is junk though, if TJ doesnt work out theyll go to A-Train

The guy that i really wanna draft this year is Plaxico Burress.....not because of his talent but his value. I think he can possibly give you solid #2 WR numbers, but he can be had in rounds 8-10 in most drafts.
