Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Sleepers

Today I am giving you my wide receiver sleepers. I have already listed my quarterback sleepers and my running back sleepers.

Vincent Jackson

So many people are calling him a sleeper, you have to be careful drafting him. If you reach for him he can lose his "sleeper status". You also have to remember the Chargers haven't had a feature receiver since maybe Tony Martin in the 90's. You may be saying "who?", exactly! Don't put too much stock into Jackson.

Joe Horn

Since no one really wants to touch anyone Falcon related you may be able to get value out of Horn. I think Horn can show he still has something and Atlanta is lucky to have him.

New Orleans Receivers

I think you will be safe taking any Saints receivers. Obviously Colston isn't a sleeper anymore, but Devery Henderson and Terrance Copper are also options as 2nd, 3rd and 4th receivers for your team.

Other mentions for wide receiver sleepers (not from me) are Ronald Curry and of course Moss. Good luck with those!

Hey -

After seeing you guys on the fantasy football guys I decided to check out your blog.

I like the content. It's also great to see someone consistently produce good stuff rather than hit on one post and miss on another.

I'd like to invite you guys to digest your posts on It's a social news site where bloggers can post their content & comments & the users will vote on what they like and don't like. The good stuff rises to the top & the bad stuff gets pushed to the bottom.

In addition to the news piece FFCollective gives fantasy owners 1 additional piece of functionality that nobody else has. The site lets fantasy owners make predictions about what a player will do each week.

Predictions from all owners are calculated to give a community prediction that ends up being an excellent gauge of perceived player value. Players are stack ranked for each week on the position pages (e.g. These stack rankings can be sorted by stat, & customized to match your league's scoring system. The rankings can help you assess potential trades & help sort out tough lineup decisions.

Plus, there is a point system behind the news & predictions. You earn points for submitting good content or making accurate predictions. The points allow you to see who knows their sh!t and who is full of sh*t.

I've already added a link to one of your articles over there & would love to see more.

Good luck in 2007.
