    Third-year WRs that matter 

    Throughout my fantasy football career, I’ve always heard about this “magical third year” for WRs, when supposedly everything clicks for them and they become fantasy factors. Since this theory has held water pretty often in recent years (Steve Smith, Javon Walker, Lee Evans, Roy Williams, plenty more that I don’t feel like linking to), here’s a short list of the third year receivers going into the 2007 season that could take the next step this year:

    1. Brown, Reggie (PHI): Should have a great year as the undisputed #1 receiver for McNabb. (Projected: 1100 yards, 9 TD’s) (More …)

    Frank Gore < Shaun Alexander 

    I will pick Alexander over Gore if given the chance in a draft this year, and it seems like I’m one of the few who would (I’m somehow with Funston on this one). I think this is indicative of a mental flaw most fantasy players (and experts) have: Short memories. Yes, Gore’s 2006 season was nothing short of friggin’ stellar, while Alexander sat a big chunk of it out with a broken foot. But let’s put last year aside and look at these two players’ last five years. (More …)

      Well…you might consider the fact that Gore is 24 and Alexander will be 30 by seasons start. However, even with the “Over-30-Year-Old-RB-Haters-Club” growing in numbers daily, I have to agree that Alexander is not just the safer pick, but the better pick here as well.

      Whatever, I’m pretty sure Shaun has been the third Barber triplet all along, and Tiki did just fine at 30.

    2007 Fantasy Football Sleepers 

    Last updated: 8/21/07

    Although it pains me to write this article, knowing that all of my opponents in my four fantasy football leagues could potentially read it, I felt it necessary to enlighten people as to my predicted sleepers of the season. However, I figure my superiority at watching the waiver wire will be enough to carry me past most of those amateurs, so here we go…

    Quarterbacks

    Alex Smith (SF): In his 3rd year, Smith could surprise. New weapons Ashley Lelie and Darrell Jackson should nicely compliment Vernon Davis and Frank Gore. Although you might not want to draft Smith as your starting QB going into the year, taking him as a backup could prove to be an excellent decision. (More …)

      Your insights on this issue are terrible! How could you possibly consider Alex Smith a potentially good selection. He is terrible and will be lucky to start this season (assuming there is even a season this year). You don’t even mention the possibility of Tim Tebow as a sleeper. He’s a bull and likely to pick up some good yardage. What about LeGarrette Blount? He’s going to explode this season. You don’t even discuss him. Ridiculous post on your part. Brandon Marshall. Maybe if we were playing 5-6 years ago. Gimme a break.

        Is this for real? Did you happen to read the title of the post before writing that comment?

      Just thought I’d inject some humor into a random person’s life. Have a good one!

    A committee rises in the Meadowlands? 

    Well, maybe not just yet, but Leon Washington sure is getting some friendly press lately, and it’s making me reconsider Thomas Jones’s spot on my cheat sheet. Sez Newsday:

    By the end of the season, Jones will likely be the Jet who has the most carries and the most yards. But the division of labor is likely to be more balanced than some are predicting.

    Keep that in mind if you’re thinking of Jones as a quality #2 back – while Leon’s a little undersized, he’s healthy, fast – and four years younger than Jones. I’m knocking Jones down a notch or two, and taking a closer look at Washington as a mid-to-late-round sleeper, in case Jones tweaks his hammy again.
