Every year in dream football circles everybody has their own perspective about sleepers and 2009 is the same. Sleeper picks can develop or destroy your group so think about every one of the alternatives during the fake drafts. No one can tell when somebody will have a breakout season. Here are a portion of my thoughts regarding RB sleepers that might have a critical effect in 2009.
2009 Fantasy Football Sleeper Predictions: Running Backs
Shonn Greene-New York Jets
While Thomas Jones is as yet the beginning RB, he is on some unacceptable side of 30 and on the off chance that he gets harmed, all signs highlight Shonn Greene as his supplanting with Leon Washington staying the third down back or the RB utilized frequently in passing circumstances. Shonn Greene makes an incredible “cuff” on the off chance that you draft Thomas Jones in dream football. I would target drafting Greene around the thirteenth round in ordinary dream drafts.
Matt McGuire, an essayist for Walterfootball.com additionally puts Shonn Greene on his rundown of sleepers. As per McGuire, “If Thomas Jones keeps on holding out and is cut, Greene may turn into a suitable RB3. We do realize the Jets love Greene since they exchanged up for him in the third round. Right now, Jones is as yet on the list, so we need to perceive how this works out prior to setting his dream projection in August.”
Andre Brown-New York Giants:
Since Derrick Ward is passing on the Giants to play for the Tampa Bay Bucs, Brown is the main possibility to supplant Ward as the third RB in the Giants “three-headed beast” running match-up. Brown has a similar form as Derrick Ward, so he could undoubtedly fill this job, hence he merits watching out for in preseason. Draft him in dream football just on the off chance that he lands the reinforcement position to Brandon Jacobs or he is utilized a ton in the “three-headed” assault and prevails in that job. On the off chance that he has an incredible pre-season, hope to draft him around the fourteenth round just prior to taking a protection or kicker. UFABET
Glen Coffee-San Francisco 49ers
Forthcoming Gore’s physical issue history makes Coffee an absolute necessity have “bind” pick for Gore proprietors. I would hope to draft him around the twelfth round in most dream drafts and watch out for him during preseason.
James Davis-Cleveland Browns
Jamal Lewis is getting more established and if he somehow managed to get harmed, Davis is the top choice to supplant him as the beginning RB for Cleveland. Davis is a force back who could return worth to dream proprietors who will take a risk on him around the thirteenth or fourteenth round in dream drafts. Watch the instructional course and preseason fight among Davis and Jerome Harrison near see who proves to be the best this year.
Derrick Ward-Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Ward gets the opportunity to be the current year’s Michael Turner. Dream Sports essayist Patrick ONeill says in his article Fantasy Football Sleepers: Running Back Rankings in Fantasy Football 2009, “Derrick Ward has such countless things going appropriate for him in Tampa Bay it is practically senseless.” Ward has been utilized predominantly as a reinforcement RB previously, yet presently he has an extraordinary shot at turning into the beginning RB in Tampa Bay. Tampa Bay is a group that likes to run the ball and I trust Ward has the right stuff to prevail in this framework.
As indicated by FFToolBox.com Ward is an underestimated sleeper. “Ward is the better wagered to breakout as a star than Graham in the Tampa Bay backfield, and is a magnificent decision in the center rounds as a #3 choice fit for delivering 1,200 yards on the ground, just as 40 gets with 7 absolute TD’s in 2009,” states FFToolBox.com. Tampa’s protection is adequate to keep most games close thusly offering Ward an incredible chance to see a great deal of contacts each game. Notwithstanding, Earnest Graham might take a portion of his objective line conveys and this might diminish Ward’s TD aggregates.
Felix Jones-Dallas Cowboys
It isn’t football except if we talk a little about the Dallas Cowboys so to wrap things up we have Felix Jones. Jones will get more conveys per game, I accept, than a great many people figure he will. He has the touchiness to score pretty much any time he contacts the ball and could set up extraordinary numbers for shrewd dream proprietors who will take a risk on him in the center to late adjusts of imagination drafts.
