OK, This Is Cool.
As I've noted here before, I write a weekly column for RotoExperts.com, a new and emerging fantasy site that we are all very proud of.
And as an example of why we're proud, our columns have been syndicated by Sports Illustrated - they have been showing up in the FanNation part of their site, but they've now migrated them to the "mother" site, as it were.
This is my article on fantasy football sleepers, and I have to say it feels pretty good to be published by Sports Illustrated.
Michael Turner, Falcons
I'm not one of the guys who thinks Turner will simply take his career 5.5 yards per carry and keep it going in the Georgia Dome. But Turner is being listed as barely a RB2 (that is, maybe going as the 19th or 20th RB overall). If that's the case, he should provide some pretty good value, because Turner is as talented as any other back in the league. Yeah, you heard that right. As bad as the Falcons are -- and they are in contention for being the worst team in the entire NFL -- running the ball hasn't been something with which the Falcons have ever struggled. With Warrick Dunn leaving the team, there is no one else really threatening to take carries away besides Jerious Norwood, who hasn't proven himself yet. Turner could be a very nice surprise this season, so grab him if he's lingering in your draft for too long.
Go check out the whole article, then go on over to RotoExperts for a full dose of fantasy goodness.
(And for those of you in my leagues...I'm just kidding with all of this. Don't draft these guys, seriously.)
