2008 FFB sleepers

Recommended Posts

Just curious if anybody has any compelling fantasy sleepers, loosely defined as someone drafted too late in many leagues or someone that outperforms their draft position.

Here's a few of my own takes:

QB's: T. Smith, Warner, Rodgers, Gerrard, Campbell, Palmer

RB's: Lynch, Turner, McFadden, Chris Johnson, T. Jones, K. Smith, P. Thomas

WR's:Holmes, Laurent Robinson, A. Gonzalez, Cotchery, Ginn Jr., Ca. Johnson, Jennings

TE: D. Lee, J. Carlson, T. Scheffler, Crumpler, Utecht

DEF: Houston, Miami

K: Graham, Scobee, Hanson

Curious to see others takes...

I like your sleeper pick in Utecht He's in a good passing offensive system and gets down the field in a hurry. Only problem is if anything's going deep it probably is going to Chad Johnson or T.J. Who'syourmamma. Inside the red zone he might be a better TD threat. Not to mention they are having some serious issues with injuries at the wide receiver position. It is possible that Carson Palmer good develope a great connection with Ben. Oh yeah plus he's a former Gopher. Can't go wrong there.

You really want to use that as a reason?

I wouldn't concider Calvin Johnson or Santonio Holmes sleepers. They are going to be stud WR's this year. Plus McFadden was targeted by everybody and there mother at my draft, I wouldn't really concider that a sleeper either

and..

Anthony Gonzalez, Javon Walker and DeSean Jackson as sleeper WR's

Good picks Craigums. You're right that in a traditional sense those guys are getting a lot of attention and in some leagues aren't sleeper picks. I'm going with the loose definition of someone drafted too late in many leagues or someone that outperforms their draft position.

I think MacFadden is going to be a bust but that is my opinion. Duece M is an injury risk but if he plays he'll probably get the score

We do an auction and I'll defintely take Duece if the price is right.

Duece has two bionic knees. They have been rebuilt so many times I would say it is an EXTREME risk to grab duece. I would look at that pierre thomas before him

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
