Don't Sleep On These Sleepers

Expect big things from Flacco's big arm this year.

It’s that time of year again. Fantasy football drafts are in full effect. Every year, it seems a few position players will come out of nowhere to put up solid fantasy stats. Being able to identify these players in the preseason and taking a flier on them in your fantasy draft could prove to be very helpful as the fantasy season plays out. It’s easy to say Wes Welker, Terrell Owens and Clinton Portis could be players that would garner sleeper/value pick status, since they are lower than usual in most drafts. But here at www.thefantasygeek.com, we dig deeper to really identify some mid- to late-round steals.

Old Faces in New Places

This uniform will take some getting used to.

Every year we have some Fantasy veterans who change teams for one reason or another. This year we’ve seen quite a bit of movement from some high profile fantasy talents. In this piece I’m breaking down whether a change of scenery will translate into continued production or a drop in value. Continue reading

Position Breakdown: Kicker

Our top kicker isn't even a household name. Yet.

You may be saying, “Why are they even bothering to break down the kicker position. They’re kickers!” Exactly. However, we like to finish what we start. Personally, I’m of the opinion that you shouldn’t draft a kicker until the last round. You’re better off taking a flier on a wide receiver. Kickers are like tissue brands. You can spend more for Kleenex, but the generic brand will get the job done. Forgive me if the kicker breakdowns are brief. But, like you said, “They’re kickers.”

Position Breakdown: Defense/Special Teams

Will a holdout lead to a vacant Revis Island?

By Sammy Crano, Fantasy Football Writer

Defense/Special Teams (DST) are usually drafted after all the starting skill position slots are filled, and for good reason. Defenses are volatile, as a chunk of the points they score are on defensive and return TDs. Not exactly something you can predict. Some owners like to play matchups using the waiver wire, but if you’re fortunate enough to grab a top DST, you should stick with them throughout your season. It’s time to break down the DST.
