Fantasy Football Draft 2009 Sleepers

To many the term sleeper would imply that a player will sneak up on the league and as Gomer Pyle would say:
SURPRISE - SURPRISE - SURPRISE, so with that being said.  85% - 90% of the players listed above "ARE NOT, WILL NOT and CAN NOT" be labeled as a "SLEEPER".  A candidate for comeback hack of the year, maybe. Due to roster moves and Pro-Bowl Caliber acquisitions some of those listed above might even be labeled as "FINALLY" Living up to expectations.
The blank post that I submitted earlier signifies the entire content of what a sleeper entails, it's an empty canvas because you never saw it coming.

My 2009 Fantasy Football Sleepers:
1).  DONALD BROWN [Addai gets introduced to the Business side of Football]
2).  LeSEAN McCOY [Westbrook gets introduced to how the "BEAGLES" treat "LOYAL" players{R. Brown, R. Cunningham, B. Dawkins, etc.]
3).  KNOWSHON MORENO [Not because of any system just the meer fact of who Denver has manning the QB position & sideline which will dictate RUN - RUN - RUN!]
4).  JAUQUIN IGLESIAS [Hester is a "DEFENSIVE STAR" not a "OFFENSIVE WEAPON", Cutler will cover up some of his flaws but not "ALL" of them]
5).  HAKEEM NICKS [Nicks outside of K. BOSS will be Eli's most consistent WEAPON - and GIANT fans will see just how important Plex was to that offense & organization].
6).  JEREMY MACLIN [Donavan McFLABBY will finally have 2 {sometimes 3 when Curtis isn't hurt} wideouts on the field at the same time whom will "CATCH" more passes than they "DROP"]!
7).  PERCY HARVIN [This is cheating, Because everyone will put at least 8 in the box to stop A.D. any wide-out on that roster can be deemed a sleeper, provided da VIKES field a QB that can throw further than Chad Pennington].
8).  BRAIN ROBISKE/MOHAMED MASSAQUOI [Robiske is a Football player unlike B. Edwards whom is more like a "D.I.V.A." and last I checked the only D.I.V.A. "ALLOWED" on the field an in the locker room was T.O.]
10). the GREENBAY PACKERS DEE [what good does it make to score 30 points a game when you're giving up 31, that unit finally has another D Coordinator].

Fantasy Football Draft 2009 Sleepers

1. Joe Flacco - I think this will be the year the Ravens are happy with the former first rounder.
2. Chester Taylor - I have to agree with an earlier statement.  I think AD goes down for 3 games.
3. Brian Robiskie - This could be the answer for the Browns.  Get thru that playbook.
4. Jason Campbell - He's ready to "just play"
5. John Kitna - Jerry Jones yanks Romo after week 6. - LOL.
6. Rashad Jennings - MJD can't carry the entire load.
7. Jamaal Charles - I love you LJ.  But your time is limited and probably done after this years RBC.
8. Cedric Benson - He's a UT alum.  Texas running backs always do better on their second team.  Look at Priest and Ricky....Next!!
9. Matt Hasselbeck - This guy is due.  With Housh in Seattle, his numbers should be impressive.  But he needs Branch healthy.  Not likely.

This was fun.  But most of my players are probably basic.  My ultimate sleeper is.................................


Donald Brown - RB, Indy.  Bye bye, Addai.

Fantasy Football Draft 2009 Sleepers

1. Donnie Avery  He had a very productive year last year and this year being the Rams number 1 receiver he will put up good numbers.
2. Thomas Jones It is sad that he gets drafted so low he had one of the best se asons last year and will do it again.
3. Anthony Gonzalez With Marvin Harrison gone he will get more targets and with Peyton Manning throwing to him he is going to do well.4. Kevin Smith He is one of the better running backs in this league.  Last year he would have made the pro bowl if he wasn't on the Lions.
5. Greg Olsen Jay Cutler has to throw to somebody in Chicago considering he is the only real threat he will do great.
6. Clinton Portis He is getting drafted in the second round and he was the number one running back for more then half the season.
7. Derrick Mason He will consistantly get you about 8 points every week which is great for a late round pick.
8. Derrick Ward He is in the same exact scenario as Michael Turner last year and you know how that turned out.
9. Jeremy Maclin This guy is a tremendous flyer he could flat out explode and he gets drafted in the last round.
10. Jay Cutler I don't see how this guy can get drafted in the 8th round with how remarkabley talented he is. He will throw for atleast 25 Td.
