HB- Thomas Jones, Eddie George?
WR- Deion Branch

Josh McCown

RB: Quentin Griffin
Chris Brown**
Julius Jones

WR: Kassim Osgood
Eric Parker
Justin McCarreins
Ty Calico
Brandon Lloyd
David Givens

TE: Antonio Gates (he's going to be a Pro Bowler)

I can't believe no one mentioned Kerry Colbert the kid has 3 or 4 td's of 60 yards or more in the preseason as a rookie.

How are Corey Dillon and Jake Delhomme sleepers? In my opinion they will both do worse then last year.

I don't know why people are mentioning Woods. I loved him and nabbed him as my sleeper before the draft, but unless the 49ers clear some WR's out of there (like Conway), he won't do much. He's struggled with injuries and inconsistency and he's the 5th WR right now.

Lloyd is the 49er Sleeper this year

I agree with a lot of these, Antonio Gates because of ability and opportunity I bet will be a top # TE and Alge Crumpler will also be a top TE because of the WC offense they put in (those two are not really sleepers but I feel they are sure bet's which on some level makes them sleepers).

Rookies that no one mentioned

Michael Clayton, some people aren't showing him a lot of love but he has adaquate size and ability for an NFL WR (not really a speedster) but it's his opportunity that I like. Keenan Mc is a holdout and doesn't want to come back, and with Joey Galloway going deep I feel Clayton willl have good opportunity.

Carson Palmer, he's not a rookie but he hasen't taken a regular season snap so I'll consider him one. Marvin Lewis is a smart man, Peter Warrick, Chad Johnson, and Kelley Washington might be the best 123 WR's in the league. Rudi Johnson is tough and will keep defenses honest. He's a #1 pick and Marvin Lewis would not have put Palmer in there if he can't win for them. He's my #1 QB in 2 fantasy league this year (my QBBC with Gannon and LEftwich usually). If anyone has seen him in the preseason they should know that he'll be a stat producer (execpt for 1 game that he looked like a rookie).
