Just post who you think are going to be this season's sleepers ala Ryan Grant last year or you can write who you think will be the most impact rookies like AP from last year

For this year some of the sleepers I like are:
Ricky Williams

Laurent Robinson and Jacoby Jones are two WRs I like who are usually there in the 15th round.

Jake Delhomme put up nice numbers in the few games he played last year and is being overlooked by people this year.

I'm not sure if Sidney Rice, Jericho Cotchery, and D.J. Hackett count as sleepers but I like them too.

My Sleepers

QB Brady Quinn Cleveland
~ If Derek Anderson ever got hurt this guy could step in and take his spot, perhaps permanently, plus he is going undrafted in just about every league, so he's cheap.

RB Pierre Thomas New Orleans
~ WHEN Deuce McAllister gets hurt again Pierre will be the guy to replace him, in his one start last season against Chicago he had 20 carries for 105 and 12 catches for 121 yards!! Shocked

RB Brandon Jackson Green Bay
~ Ryan Grant is a Training Camp holdout, and it doesn't look like his contract issues will be resolved very soon, but management has expressd this love for Brandon Jackson, they have said they are going to give him 10-15 touches per game, plus if teh unproven Grant is injured or under-performs, Jackson could dominate in his place, going undrafted in your average 12 team league "B-Jax" could be this year's Ryan Grant.

WR Chad Jackson New England
~ He is the heir apparent to Donte Stallworth's #2 spot opposite Moss iwth Welker in the slot(Jabar Gaffney is not a starter) , the Pats traded up to get him in 2006 so they will not be watching him rot on the bench, he is recovered from an ACL tear, he is a solid #4 fantasy WR.

WR Ben Obomanu Seattle
~ With Deion Branch on the bench for the 2008 season with an ACL tear adn D.J. Hackett now a Carolina Panther someone has to step in and catch some balls. Obomanu will be the top candidate for the #3 WR spot in Seattle after Engram and Burleson.

WR Steve Smith New York
~ Didn't do much in the regular season, but was a key component to the Giants Title run lin ast season's playoffs. Strong finishes often correlate to strong following seasons.

My Breakout Rookie

RB Jonathan Stewart Carolina
~ I have seen him ranked inside the top 15 for running backs, he will be Carolina's starter by October and is the best rookie candidate to gain 1,000 yards this season, he is a solid #3 running back in my opinion. I predict him to have around 240-250 carries for 1,050-1,100 rushing yards and 8-10 rushing TDs, plus about 20-25 catches for 150-175 receiving yards.

From my earlier post on the last thread:
-Demetrius Williams, WR, Baltimore: Mark Clayton has not yet been as productive as they may have hoped him to be. Going into his third year, Williams is a phenomenal deep threat with great potential because of his size.
-D.J. Hackett, WR, Carolina: I'm largely basing this off of my belief that a healthy Delhomme will reignite this entire offense. With his connection with Smith, teams will be forced to role coverage to his side freeing up Hackett if he can win out the job over Moose and Jarrett, which IMO he will. He's developed into a legit number two receiver.
-Kevin Walter and Andra Davis, WR, Houston: Everybody knows Andre Johnson, but there are two recievers who put up pretty good numbers on the other side of the field, starting with Walter who put up 800 yards and 4 TDs. At the same time Davis is argubly the bigger talent and has the added bonus of being a return man. Whoever wins this #2 spot could be a good option to have. Until that running game establishes itself for sure, this team will take to the air a lot.
-Brent Celek, TE, Philadelphia: LJ Smith is a good TE, but coming off of injury again he's a great pair of hands that can go down the seem. With a relatively subpar WR core, we could see the Eagles go to a few 2 TE sets.
-Julius Jones, RB, Seattle: While he was outshone in Dallas by Barber, he's still no chump. He should get the start and run behind a solid line and in an offense with good balance.

Other one's that I am keeping my eye one:
-DeAngelo Williams, RB, Carolina
-Sidney Rice, WR, Minnesota
-Deion Branch, WR, Seattle
-John Carlson, TE, Seattle (Also my OROY candidate)
-Antwaan Randle El, WR, Washington

I love the pair of sleepers from Jacksonville. Mike Walker could eventually be our #1
