    Sleepers and Bargains?

    Sleepers and guys that seem to slip to later rounds than they should........

    1.)
    Chris Henry Cin WR - The guy goes undrafted in most leagues I have drafted in.
    2.)
    J. Shockey
    NO
    TE - Poised for a good year in that offense.
    3.)
    OchoCinco
    Cin WR - Ocho gets drafted, but it has been lower than where he should be drafted
    4.)
    C.Palmer

    Cin QB - The main reason Henry and Ocho improve this year is a healthy Palmer.
    5.)
    D. Avery

    StL
    WR - With a healty Bulger, a better O-line and no Holt, he is No.1 in StL. He goes late rds
    6.)
    J Jones


    Sea RB - One league he went in the 12th round.
    Duckett was his threat, now James, last year, was a challenge in a new offense.
    Better season this year.
    7.) Beanie Wells Ari RB - Rookie roll of the dice.
    Late rounds
    8.) Joseph Addai Ind RB - Late rounder, looking for a better year. Young guy might challenge him for carries??
    9.) Caddy Williams TB RB - Sometimes undrafted, comp is Ward, Can he stay healthy...... I am betting he can.
    10.) Carney NO K - a kicker as a sleeper.
    I have seen people draft Hartley, he will be out the first 4 weeks, may not get his job back depending on how Carney does in a dome. NO is going to be high scoring, lots of extra points and FGs.

    Some more names........
    Mason Bal WR
    Branch Sea WR
    McFadden Oak RB
    Rice Bal RB
    Rice MN WR depends on how our QB plays this year.
    Shiancoe MN TE should have made my top 10, Favre loves TE.
    One of the NE RBs, don't draft one.
    LOL
    wait until week 2!
    Same goes for Oakland even though I have McFadden up above.


    Please add other ideas!

    Re: Sleepers?

    Someone other than Hester will have to be Cutler's guy....... an actual WR.

    I bet on Earl Bennett.
    You can wait until week 2 or 3 on that one....... maybe.

    I don't think Bennett was drafted in any of the drafts I have seen, only Hester and Olsen (TE)

    Bennett and Culter played together at Vandy

    Re: Sleepers and Bargains?

    I have to explain the Cincy picks.
    I just feel that they are all undervalued because of Palmer's injury last season.
    TJ is gone, so that leave Ocho, Coles, and Henry.
    If Henry can do some of the fundamentals to move up the depth chart, he will be a solid No.2 WR.

    I didn't see a lot of people pick Thomas Jones from the Jets very early. I got him in one league pretty late...

    Re: Sleepers and Bargains?

    My sleepers are Finley (GB TE),
    Steve Smith (NY WR, typiclally goes undrafted)
    Patrick Crayton (WR DAL, typically goes undrafted)
    C. Williams (Going undrafted as well or very late)

    Bargins
    Driver (Seems to be going very late but is a capable 1000 yard WR)
    Ryan Grant - I divide RBs into workhorse backs and guys sharing the load. Grant is really a workhorse back but for some reason guys who are sharing the load get picked before him. Doesn't make a lot of sense if you ask me.

    Re: Sleepers and Bargains?

    Other guys to watch the first few weeks.

    Jamaal Charles (KC) - Watch how LJ does.
    Charles is a stretch, many things have to happen for him to see significant time.

    BenJarvus Green-Ellis - Maroney is injury laden. Hasn't been getting yds in preseason.
    Also have to see how Taylor does?
    BJG-E is a long shot or a stretch.
    Someone has to win this RB job in NE.
    I think that even though Taylor is the oldest, he might get the most carries.
    Can he stay healthy?
    I am rooting for Maroney, but he has be injured so often and coaches don't like guys that get injured, they become out of favor.

    Sid The Kid Rice - The Kid could break out this season once him and BF get use to each other.
    We will have to wait a few weeks to see how this combo does.
    BB is still the No. 1 guy, but he has to stay on the field.

    Josh Cribbs - He could be productive if he gets more playing time at WR.
    If you get points for his special teams efforts in your league, even if he is a No.2 or No.3 WR, he would be worth having.

    Rashard Mendenhall - There is a chance that he could replace Parker.
    Parker has a sore hammy besides coming back from an injury.
    Mendenhall is slated to get goal line carries already.

    Stucky and Gage are WRs to watch that are probably out there and will need a few weeks to see if they are worth picking up.

    Finely could be like Shank was last year.
    That is a good one!

    Edit: Right now, he is behind D.Lee but could overtake him.
    He has had a great preseason.

    Crayton was one of the Cowboys best WRs before TO got there.
    He is familiar with Romo.
    Williams seems to get injured a lot.
    He could be productive.

    Chaz Schillens.
    He is injured right now so you can pick him up late or wait on waiver wire as he nears being healthy (I think week 2 or 3).
    Raiders will be down all the time and throwing.
