okay what are some consensus "sleepers" that you think will disappoint or are going too high?

I don't know what the ADP is for Maybin, but I am not sure if he is going to produce like some think especially at the bottom of a pretty weak Marlins lineup. I think I'll let the next guy draft Dukes as well.

You are right...

Sexson is a sleeper to break Nolan Ryan's strikeout record.

On a serious note,

I do have a suspicion that Zach Duke can turn it around this year. He quietly finished off the season at 5-0 last year. The best thing about him is that he is undrafted so he is very low risk.

Most leagues don't count Ks as a category, but if yours does, I agree that you shouldn't touch him. ;-)

What about his .195 batting average?

Sexson's nickname should be The Big Scrub.

He has a higher career batting average (.263), than Adam Dunn (.248) whose ADP is 40.80 (MockDraftCentral). He's never come within less than 10 points of batting .195, but I assume that was just pulled to try and make a point.

30 HR and 100 RBI isn't nearly out of the question for Sexson, who is being undrafted in most leagues. Hell, 35 HR isn't even out of the question, as he hit 34 in '06 and 39 in '05. He surpassed 100 RBI prior to '07 in 5 of the preious 6 seasons, the sixth he was injured for. Toss in a probable 75 or so Runs, and you've got yourself a pretty servicable option at 1B that you just got for free off Waivers... That's pretty much the definition of a sleeper candidate, if you ask me.

No?
