    Wide receivers to watch out for (sleepers) 

    With most fantasy football league drafts complete, it’s time to skim the waiver wire for some players to keep an eye on. If you’re in a Yahoo league, these are the guys you would click the little ‘Add to Watch List’ flag next to their name. I guess you could consider these as “sleeper picks”, but they’re really just guys who have shown promise in the offseason and whose numbers could surprise you when the season is all said and done. I’ve also included a bonus running back waiver wire pickup in case you were interested.

    Wide receivers to watch:

    1. Davone Bess, MIA – Last season Bess ended the year with a respectable 54 receptions, but it was the end of the year where he really shined. Over the last six games of the season, Davone had 35 catches. This year he’s fighting to be the number two receiver alongside Ted Ginn, but in the end he should again be Pennington’s go-to guy and should put up some decent numbers.
    2. David Clowney, NYJ – Apparently he didn’t win the battle to be the #2 receiver for the Jets, but he’s faster than Chansi Stuckey and had a solid preseason. Look for him to get a lot of looks in the passing game no matter where he is on the depth chart.
    3. (More …)

      I am officially on the Hakeem Nicks bandwagon. He apparently just worked his way up to #4 WR on the depth chart and Im surprised he isnt #2. I suppose the Giants want to give former high pick Manningham a shot but Nicks’ pre-season explosion may keep him off the field and push Manningham down the depth chart.

        Yeah I agree, I think he’ll move up the depth chart mid-way through the season, but I’m still holding off on my final judgement until we see what this year’s version of the Giants offense is all about.

    Preseason week 3 leaders 

    With the real preseason coming to an end this past weekend (week four is always a joke), here are the leaders in yardage from the quarterback, running back and wide receiver positions (compliments of NFL.com)…

    week 3 leaders

    As you can see, there are a number of starting quarterbacks (Flacco, Rodgers, McNabb and Hasselbeck) and running backs (Peterson, Turner) now on the list, but there are some other names on there that may pique your interest. Cardinals backup Matt Leinart has actually done something useful this preseason, making him an even more important handcuff for Kurt Warner owners if you think the veteran’s age may catch up to him this year. Running back sleepers Glen Coffee and James Davis remain on the list and make solid, late round draft picks with medium-to-high upside. The same goes for all the receivers on the list (except Kenny McKinley…who is he?), who can be drafted very late and could provide you WR3 type of numbers this year.

      I’ve heard the Broncos are very high on McKinley, but he’s pretty unlikely to make any impact until next season when Brandon Marshall is out of Denver.

      I’m finding it hard to believe Troy Williamson’s preseason performances, but if he keeps it up in Week 1, I might just have to grab him off the waiver wire.

        Yeah it seems that Williamson is getting big stats off a few long bombs and he most likely will not keep that up consistently throughout the season.

        As for McKinley, you could be right. Marshall wasn’t projected to be a superstar out of college, nor was Eddie Royal, but they both did well. Maybe he’s the next in line.
