This has to be the worst list of fantasy sleepers I've ever seen. It is based on players who have increased their performance the last two years, since of course increased performance over a three-year period means a player will get even better in the fourth year. Peak performance? I've never heard of this. Loss of role on team? I have no idea what you are talking about. Age? Ain't nothing but a number.
So you end up with Tim Rattay, Reuben Droughns, Michael Pittman, and Cedrick Wilson, among others. Eddie Kennison is here, and the writer asks "Has this talented but gutless player finally turned the corner?" Sure, at the age of 32 there's nowhere to go but up. Although, I do seem to remember somebody who predicted a career year for Eddie Kennison in 2004. Who was that guy, anyway?
Five different teams from last year's DVOA top eight rank in the bottom half of the league through four weeks of 2014. What can we learn from other teams with similar starts in the past?
