Undervalued Fantasy Football Mid-Round Bargains
Drafting these overlooked Fantasy football players offers excellent value at reasonable costs to all fantasy football teams. Were taking advantage of these players, as everyone goes with the big name players hoping to give you the push to the top. We feel these underdogs or sleepers will help you reign as number 1.
Thomas Jones, RB, New York Jets: With the additions of guard Alan Faneca, fullback Tony Richardson, and tight end Bubba Franks upgrades the New York Jets running attack significantly. Watch out for Jones to take advantage of great blocking and huge holes for long runs in 2008. Were running with this and drafting Thomas Jones as high as our first running back on our fantasy football team. This is well worth the shot.
Matt Forte, RB, Chicago Bears: With such talented and hyped up rookies Darren McFadden and Jonathan Stewart getting selected early in fantasy football drafts, we like the chances of Matt Forte to compete for the same kind of fantasy statistics. Fortes combination of speed, size durability, running skills and receiving skills will serve great for fantasy teams as he will be on the field with the Bears for most downs. With the upgraded offensive line of the Chicago Bears, we can see Matt Forte having a nice rookie year. Well take our chances with Matt, take him no higer then a number 2 or 3 option on most fantasy football teams.
LenDale White, RB, Tennesse Titans: White ran for his first 1000 plus yard season and included 7 touchdowns last year. In a Titans conservative run focused system, he carried for over 300 times, one of only 6 running backs last year to do so. Were expecting a big year from LenDale, were not taking him as our number 1 running back but were making him easily our number 2 option. If you can steal him as a number 3 back don’t let him go to far.
Kevin Smith, RB, Detroit Lions: With the addition of Rob Marinelli as head coach, establishing an effective running attack along with a strong defense are 2 main goals for the Lions as a team this upcoming year. These changes will benefit Kevin Smith, he can easily average 20 carries per game. If your all about taking chances in fantasy leagues, Smith is one to go with. He can easily be your number 2 option. Well just have to wait and see.
Draft these players, to only improve your team and giving you a better chance to win each week. Remember these are sleepers so don’t rely on them to single handily win the fantasy football league themselves.
