This year’s Mike Sims-Walker

Last year at this exact time I told people here to pick up WR Mike Sims-Walker and I think I have the 2010 version of Sims-Walker in my back pocket.

Believe it or not, I think it is Seattle WR Mike Williams.

We’ve been on Williams all along, and although it was fair to be skeptical, I think we should have pushed him a little more than we did. But for most of you, it’s not too late, so I’d grab him now if I could. I can’t, because I missed the initial WW period in every single one of my league – working too much – and he’s gone in all of them, which is typical for an expert league.

I have to say, I really have a feeling Williams will surprise this year. He’s certainly not a stud, but neither is Sims-Walker, and while the Seahawks have other receivers, unlike the Jags last year, I think Williams is looking like a real key here, like MSW for the Jags last year, and that’s a point that our Greg Cosell agreed with in today’s Matchup Podcast.

If you’re loo […]

    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
