What did I say about Lesean McCoy in westbrooks absense???
Just to add to the good picks that will be available in later rounds.

Running Backs:
Donald Brown is better than Joseph Addai and will prove it.
Felix Jones -- had something like an 8 yard per touch avg last year before being injured. He will be like Chris Johnson to Marion Barber. DEFINATELY picking him up.
Gotta love Kevin Smith in Detroit as a backup cuz he could be a steal cuz other teams can't load the box with Stafford's armstrength and CJ's incredible ability.
Cedric Benson is a good backup, but if you have two good starters, I would go for Donald Brown/LeSean McCoy/Felix Jones/Jonathan Stewart instead.

Tight Ends
Vernon Davis - did u watch the preseason game?
Chase Coffman is a good prospect and will be an underneath/redzone option for Carson Palmer. The word out of Bengal's camp is that he's doing very well.
Jason (?) Cook. TE out of Tennessee has speed and good hands - expect to claim him from waivers early in the season cuz he will have a good 2nd half.

WRs:
Nate Washington might be a good 3rd option, but I don't see him getting more than 6 TDs. You never know though -- I've picked him every mock draft I did.
Josh Morgan anyone? He will put up good numbers (800/6 -- hopefully more) which will be good for fantasy and our beloved 9rs.
Jeremy Maclin with the other speedy WRs, the threat of Westbrook, Vick, and McNabb, I don't see how he can't put up half of DeSean Jackson's numbers from last year.
Percy Harvin will be a huge threat in Minnesota with everyone paying attention to All Day and a great deep speed threat in Bernard Berrian. The only question is will they give him the ball in screens, runs, and can Tavaris or Sage actually throw it to him??
Domenik Hixon is the Giant's probably #1 and will get the ball thrown at him. As a 3rd option/backup, I feel he would be a steal.
Steve Smith (the Giant) has also been looking good in Giant's camp and wants to be the starter. Look for him to be productive on playaction off the Giant's good running game.
Mario Manningham is a punt returner and is working with the 2nd team offense as the Giant's #1.
--Honestly, I think any of the NYG receievers could potentially be a steal in the late rounds--
I always am wrong on this, but there is possibility that it will finally be Dwayne Jarret's breakout year. With Steve Smith taking so much attention, will he finally pass up Mushin Muhammed and become a legitmate threat? He also poses redzone mismatch problems.

QBs:
Shaun Hill! 2 TDs a game avg. Put up #s rivaling Peyton's last year for the last 5 games... Normally I just draft him to have in on my team.
Jason Campbell could finally break out to go for over 20 TDs. He's got Santana Moss, Devin something, and Hardy as 2 speedy, one gigantic wideout. Good running game. Improved defense. I think he may be a steal except he plays in a brutal division.[/b]
To the person wondering where they could do a free Keeper league. I have ran mine on ESPN for 5 yrs now.. and absolutely love the customization abilities on that site.
knicks, moreno, ginn, and holt are both my steals and sleepers
Where's the love for Coffee?

I picked him up a couple weeks ago (dropped lendale white), and so far it's been nothing but gold with him. Too bad it's not the regular season. But still, ESPN doesn't have a single update for him, just the same note from when he was signed, stating they don't think he'll do anything.

Rumor has it Brodie Croyle has been looking good and could challenge Cassell for the starting spot. Also a rumor of him (and a 2nd or 3rd)going to the Broncos for Brandon marshall.

Ryan Torain, RB, Denver Broncos. If he stays healthy I think he will beat out Moreno for more playing time.

I'm usually pretty good at picking sleeper QBs and RBs, but I'm terrible at pikcing WRs in the later rounds.

I don't know how you do it

Speaking of the Broncos...Eddie Royal a sleeper/steal? I can't get a read on him with Orton and all...
Which sleeper WR would you rather have: Josh Morgan or Chris Henry?

Easily Morgan, who will lead 49er receivers in targets.

While Henry has to fight with Coles and Ocho Cinco.
