SLEEPERS!

1. Nick Johnson; 1B, MON - Will start full time, and have Vidro batting directly in front of him, and Tony Batista batting behind him. Breakout time for Nick.

2. Jeff Weaver; SP, LA - Got out of New York, and LA is a big time pitching park

3. Octavio Dotel; CL, HOU - When a setup man is owned in 99% of Fantasy leagues, you know you have something special on your hands. Dotel is finally becoming the team's closer, and shouldn't be much of a dropoff after Wagner for the Astros.

4. Derek Lee; 1B, CHI - Unique combination of Speed and Power at 1B. Moving from Florida to the Friendly Confines could turn him into a top fantasy 1B.

Big dropoff from here on:

5. Al Leiter; SP, NYM - His overall stats were inflated due to a poor start...Leiter was lights out in the second half, 7-4 with a 2.15 ERA.

6. Paul Konerko; 1B, CWS - Likely not to be high on any draft boards. Had a good second half in an overall disappointing season

7. Jeromy Burnitz; RF, COL - Playing in Colorado. Could be a HUGE sleeper this year after slipping in 2 years with the Mets/Dodgers.

8. Vinny Castilla; 3B, COL - If he hit well and was worth having while he was playing in Atlanta, he'll be valuable playing in Colorado.

9. Jermaine Dye; RF, OAK - He'll be healthy, he's a stud when he's healthy.

10. Johan Santana; SP, MIN - Been around a few years, began to breakout last year. Below the radar.

11. Pat Burrel; LF, PHI - Is he really this bad?

12. Cliff Floyd; LF, NYM - Hurt all of last year, he still managed to be on pace for 27 HR and 100+ RBI...with nobody in the lineup. With Matsui, Reyes and Piazza hitting around him this year, he should be a fantasy starter again.

13. Kenny Lofton; OF, NYY - At the top of the Yanks lineup, should score a whole lot of runs.

14. AJ Burnett; SP, FLA - Unknown if he will be ready opening day, coming of TJ surgery, a 200K pitcher.

15. Tony Batista; 3B, MON - His power has always been there, but his Average has been absent the past few seasons. Maybe a change of scenery is what he needed?

Sadly but true, are the first two.
I'm a poet and I didn't even know it!

Nick Johnson, Jeff Weaver, both left the Yankees too.....

Good call on most of these guys having bounce back seasons after either an injury or down year(s).

This list is totally screwed. Derrick Lee a sleeper after having an MVP type season in 05. Al Leither isnt even an in the league anymore. Nick Johnson I could understand. Kenny Lofton is not with the yankees where are these sleepers coming from
