SS Sleepers

Postby WebHamster » Wed Jan 30, 2013 5:39 pm

Shortstop has been a dire position to find talent in recent years, with many fringe-level fantasy starters serving as black holes once the top-tier guys were off the board. This year, three players new to fantasy rankings this year could establish themselves as top-15 players at the shortstop position rather quickly. All three have taken [...]

Nice selections but Rutledge seems pretty well known from what I've been seeing. He looks like he might be overvalued by draft time.

Rutledge went 125th overall in our current slow mock and 109th in the first one. I'd guess his ADP will fall around these spots somewhere.

However, I see Rutledge running the risk of being overhyped by many fantasy leaguers, so his status as sleeper likely depends on the rest of your league. If you can get him in the 15-20 range at the position, you’re getting value. But if five or six guys in your league fall in love with him and he goes in the 8-10 range, whether by auction price or draft slot, he may not provide a lot of value this year.
