    Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer will possibly miss the rest of the preseason with an ankle injury that he’s been dealing with for about two weeks already. The team claims he will be fully healed by the start of the regular season, but given his track record with injuries, who knows how that will work out. He almost fits the mold of a “sleeper” this season, as you can get him pretty cheap as your backup quarterback and with a healthy Ochocinco and a non-currently-suspended-for-arrest Chris Henry as wide receivers, he could put up some decent numbers…as long as he’s on the field.

    Oakland wide receiver Chaz Schilens was close to being Mr. Irrelevant in last year’s NFL draft, but he could be the best the team has at the position this year and he made a pretty big statement by catching five passes for 52 yards in the first preseason game. Schilens might be a decent sleeper pick in your league’s draft and will probably end up with better stats than the team’s high-profile rookie receiver, Darrius Heyward-Bey, who was not effective at all in the game (one catch for 8 yards.)

      When someone named Chaz Schilens might be your best option at any position, you can kiss the season goodbye.

    LaDainian Tomlinson: “There’s not a lot of pressure on me… Now I can just kind of be that sleeper.” Sounds about right.

      I guess his sleeper status will only apply to maybe dropping him a few spots in the first round, as I don’t see him going into round 2…unless you work for Sportsline maybe.

      This guy puts LT as the 13th best RB, so I guess that would be late second round, early third round or something. he also puts Brian Westbrook at 14, right behind LT, so maybe he’s smoking something.

    Desperation is a Stinky Cologne: Deep Sleepers for Week 14 

    Sneak into the playoffs and praying for an first-round upset? Dominant all season but now scrambling to fill in for an injured player so you don’t get humiliated by some bottom-seeded punk? These players are available in over 50% of ESPN and Yahoo leagues (on average) and might just be able to keep you in the hunt for one more week.


    Shaun Hill, SF – Shaun Hill rolls into this nice matchup with the Jets’ 29th-ranked pass defense with a bit of a head of steam – a 94.6 passer rating and an 8-3 TD-INT ratio. I don’t blame you if you’re reluctant to trust such an inexperienced QB in a late-season fantasy matchup, but if you’re reading this post, odds are you don’t have a better option. There’s plenty of upside here to go with a heaping helping of risk. I think he’s worth the gamble, but hey, feel free to start someone else, you big wuss. (More …)

    Desperation is a Stinky Cologne: Deep Sleepers for Week 12, 2008 

    Attention, all ye 4-7 and 5-6 teams: The playoffs are officially here for you. Of course, this all depends upon your league’s settings, but chances are that if you’re even a smidge below .500 at this point, your only shot is to win out and pray that the tiebreakers work out in your favor. If you’re holding off on picking up a free agent because you’d have to drop that injured player who might be ready in time for the playoffs, it’s time to wake up and do what has to be done. Better to limp into the playoffs with a snowball’s chance in hell of winning than to miss the postseason entirely. (Owners of Carnell Williams and Selvin Young – I’m looking at you.)

    Here’s a look at some players who are owned in less than 50% of Yahoo and ESPN leagues and would make a decent play this week. The % owned statistic next to each player’s name is an average of all Yahoo and ESPN leagues.


    Kerry Collins, TEN, 36% owned – Quick, name another MVP candidate who’s owned in just 36% of fantasy leagues. The Titans have been out to prove that they can win through the air, and this looks like another matchup that will lead them to pursue the same strategy. The Jets are tough on the ground but near the bottom against the pass, so expect lots of old-fashioned Vodka Collins action in this one. (More …)
