  • AvengerRam's Fantasy Football Best Buys

    Everyone can figure out who the best players to draft in the early rounds are, but here are my breakout player/sleeper picks:

    1. Andre Johnson, WR, Houston

    He may be the most physically gifted receiver in football.

    2. Alge Crumpler, TE, Atlanta

    On the cusp of stardom last year. Could become top TE in NFC this year.

    3. Chris Brown, RB, Tennessee

    Showed flashes last year. Should be the new #1 back even if Eddie George stays.

    4. Josh McCown, QB, Arizona

    Inexperienced, but with his WR corps and the Cards likely playing catch-up much of the time, he should put up big numbers.

    5. Lee Evans, WR, Buffalo

    Rookie WRs are often a poor choice in fantasy leagues, but Evans should fit in with Bledsoe and benefit from having Eric Moulds on other side.

    6. Justin Fargas, RB, Oakland

    If healthy and can hold on to the ball, he can be a home run hitter.

    7. Musa Smith, RB, Baltimore

    Woth picking up in case Jamaal Lewis is sidelined by legal troubles.

    8. Marc Bulger, QB, St. Louis

    Don't be shocked if he leads NFC in yards and TDs.

    9. Kevin Jones, RB, Detroit

    Will get the ball early and often.

    10. Kelly Washington, WR, Cincinnati

    Big, fast, second year man should emerge as Chad Johnson's running mate.

    Good list, I had a couple of these players on my teams last year. These are also the type of players that you can pick up after the draft.

      Here's a few of my sleeper picks, many of which I've signed in my dynasty league:

      1. Chris Perry - CIN
      He's the future in Cincinatti. I'm sure the reasons are obvious.

      2. Reggie Williams - JAX
      Big receiver and will be taking over for Jimmy Smith upon retirement.

      3. David Givens - NEP
      Stats towards the end of the season may surprise you. He gets plenty of looks in the end zone.

      4. Carson Palmer - CIN
      He's taken over in place of Kitna who put up Pro-Bowl like numbers last season. There's gotta be something to him.

      5. William Green - Many have written off Green in Cleveland, behind Suggs. But what few realize is that several sources have Green slated as the starter for 2004, as he impressing many people in early camps.

      IDP Sleepers
      1. Pisa Tinoisamoa - STL
      He's going to be a monster.

      2. Bryan Scott - ATL
      He put up big numbers in the 6 starts he got at the end of 2003.

      Tony Hollings - HOU
      Hollings may take over the starting RB role for the Texans very soon.

        3 Round Fantasy Mock Draft []
        by evil disco man
        Fantasy mock draft

        By Michael Fabiano Fantasy Expert

        (March 29, 2007) -- Who said there's an offseason in the world of fantasy football?

        There have been an absolute plethora of major transactions since our last draft -- a number of which included the ever-important running back position -- so our third one-man mock draft includes several alterations in the second and third rounds. Remember that each numbered position of the draft represents an individual team, so no one team will select more than one quarterback, two backs or two wide receivers in three rounds.

        The draft is based on a standard scoring system that rewards one point for each 25 passing yards, 10 rushing and receiving yards and six points for all touchdowns.

        ROUND ONE

        1. LaDainian Tomlinson, RB, San Diego: The consensus first overall selection in all drafts, Tomlinson will remain a statistical monster under new head coach Norv Turner. The Chargers will continue to lean on him as the centerpiece of their offense, so another season with 2,000-plus all-purpose yards and 18-22 total touchdowns is in the cards.

        2. Larry Johnson, RB, Kansas City: Johnson recorded a single-season record 416 carries in 2006, so he hired personal trainer Joe Carini, who has worked with Tiki Barber, in an effort to remain in top physical condition. Head coach Herman Edwards should utilize Michael Bennett more often to keep Johnson fresh, but he'll remain a true featured back.

        3. Steven Jackson, RB, St. Louis: One of the most versatile runners in the NFL, Jackson led the position with 90 receptions and finished with over 2,300 all-purpose yards last season. The Rams should be well stocked with Marc Bulger at the helm of the offense, but Jackson will remain the main component for head coach Scott Linehan. Owners in leagues that reward points for receptions should consider Jackson ahead of Johnson.

        4. Frank Gore, RB, San Francisco: Gore recorded a career-best 1,695 rushing yards and nine total touchdowns last season, and his role with the ***** will remain the same even with former offensive coordinator Norv Turner now out of the mix. New coordinator Jim Hostler will run the same offense as Turner, so another season with 1,400-plus yards is a virtual lock. As a result, the talented Gore will be a top-five selection in most drafts.

        5. Peyton Manning, QB, Indianapolis: The unquestioned No. 1 quarterback in all of fantasy football, Manning threw for an impressive 4,397 yards and finished with 35 total touchdowns last season. One of the few non-runners that will warrant a first-round selection in all drafts, the man with the laser rocket arm should throw for 4,000-plus yards and total better than 30 touchdowns for the second consecutive season.

        6. Shaun Alexander, RB, Seattle: A victim of the now infamous Madden cover curse,...

        My current fantasy roster
        by krist042
        QB: Donovan McNabb (yes, I started him last week. I know, I'm horrible, but he got me a ton of points)
        QB: Brett Favre
        WR: Plaxico Burress (yes, I will start him this week)
        WR: Laveranues Coles
        WR: Bernard Berrian
        WR: DeSean Jackson (started him too...shhh)
        WR: Eddie Royal
        RB: Frank Gore
        RB: Maurice Jones-Drew
        RB: Matt Forte
        RB: Chris Johnson
        TE: Antonio Gates
        K: Rob Bironas
        DEF: Dallas
        DEF: Buffalo

        I know I have a lot of rookie talent but they have been looking good already. I think this is the best team after week 1 that I have had yet.
