Every owner in your fantasy league has their eye on at least one guy flying under the radar, AKA the sleeper.
This week, The Hazean is going to bring you ten of these guys in no particular order.
To catch up on past rankings, check out last week’s WTT.
WTT for July 18, 2007: Sleepers
Haze owner Blaine Clancy joins The Hazean once again to compile this list of the best ten sleeper prospects for the 2007 season. Get at it:
- Devery Henderson, Saints — McNeil: Henderson plays on a prolific offense and steps into a starting role opposite possession receiver Marques Colston after the departure of Joe Horn this offseason. Henderson has terrific speed and is a big-play threat. If he can improve his catching ability, he could be in for a great year. The Saints have many weapons on offense which will allow Henderson to see a lot of single coverage.
- Vincent Jackson, Chargers — Clancy: The main theory in the development of young wide receivers is that they typically “break-out” in their third year. Jackson enters his third year with the Chargers, and this 6-foot-5 receiver looks poised to have an explosive year. Not only does he have two years under his belt, but Vincent’s young quarterback also is coming into his own and will likely increase production. Vincent has increasingly become more adapted to the NFL, as evident by his 2006 totals. The bulk of his yardage and touchdowns were produced during the last month of the season. Also, take note that his yard-per-catch (YPC) jumped from 12.5 in November to 20.4. Jackson is worth a pick in round 8 or 9, thus reducing his risk/reward factor.
- JP Losman, Bills — McNeil: Losman looked like he started to “get it” by the end of last year. His synergy with wide receiver Lee Evans is promising, but the loss of runningback Willis McGahee could hurt Losman in most drafts. Losman is a guy most owners will be able to snatch very late in the draft as a No. 2 QB, and he could end up as a No. 1 QB on certain weeks when the matchups are right. Continue reading
