Sleepers & Busts

Sleeper Alert:


Philip Rivers (LAC QB, tons of options, reliable, cheap at price)

Terrance West (BAL RB) – increased workload, Dixon out, RB3

Danny Woodhead  (BAL RB)- monster in PPR, coming off ACL, Ravens depleted

Rex Burkhead (NE RB) – BB loves this guy, 2-headed beast w/ Gilessile)

Kareem Hunt (KC RB) – #2 behind Ware, solid yr at Toledo, Andy Reid loves RBs

Derrick Henry (TEN RB)

Jacquizz Rodgers (TB RB) – Doug Martin out 1st 4 week

Jamaal Williams (GB RB) – Jordan Howard like upside

Marlon Mack (IND RB) – time to replace Frank Gore



Darren McFadden, Jonathan Williams, D’Onta Foreman, James Conner, De’Angelo Henderson, Chris Carson (SEA RB)

DeVante Parker (MIA WR) – deep threat w/ Cutler

Pierre Garcon (SF WR) – back w/ Kyle Shanahan, Brian Hoyer is adequate

Cameron Meredith (CHI WR) – #1 in CHI, Glennon/Trubisky? Kevin White unproven

Tyrell Williams (LAC WR) – reliable w/ Rivers, had a solid 2016

Jeremy Maclin (BAL WR) – hopefully past groin injury, who else Flacco throw to?

Kenny Golladay (DET WR) – Megatron reincarnated?


Others: Ted Ginn, Zay Jones, Roby Anderson, Cooper Kupp, Bruce Ellington (HOU WR), Dede Westbrook (JAC WR), Taywan Taylor (TEN WR), Kasan Williams (SEA WR)

Jack Doyle (IND TE) – if Luck’s healthy he’ll be good

Others: Coby Fleener, Austin Hooper, Julius Thomas


Guys I’m avoiding/Busts:


Cam Newton (CAR QB)

Marshawn Lynch (OAK RB) – #12 overall though…draft as RB2

Ty Montgomery (GB RB…leg injury, draft as flex)

LeGarrette Blount (PHI RB) – w/o potent NE offense, Sproles + W. Smallwood, RB3/flex

Adrian Peterson (NO RB) – #2 behind Ingram

Allen Robinson (JAC WR) – no QB, more run-dependent? Should be late WR2

Sammy Watkins (LAR WR) – Goff? Faces Cards CB Patrick Peterson + Richard Sherman

Jarvis Landry (MIA WR) – Cutler likes Parker, limited TDs, isn’t a top 20 WR

Tyreek Hill (KC WR) – not at current ADP (49)

Julian Edelman (NE WR) – too many mouths – Cooks/Gronk/Allen/Mitchel/Amendola

Delanie Walker (TEN TE) – more competition at WR, take Rudolph/Hendry/Doyle over him

Martellus Bennett (GB TE) – take him later in Rd 9+, he’s TE11-14
