FFL: Question of the Week
Updated: August 30, 2006, 4:12 PM ETESPN Fantasy Games
Each week leading up to and throughout the season, we'll ask our Fantasy Games experts about a hot topic in fantasy football. This week's question: Who is a late-draft wide receiver you're targeting who would surprise the rest of us? Eric Karabell: Two seasons ago Michael Clayton of the Buccaneers was a rookie sensation, topping 1,100 yards and scoring seven touchdowns? Last year, well, that didn't go so well, but blame injuries for his poor sophomore performance. Clayton came to Bucs camp this year in terrific shape, and with something to prove, and considering Joey Galloway is 34 years old, it's certainly possible Clayton could take his place as the top target for Chris Simms. It's never a bad idea to look at stats from two years ago to find players who have the ability, but just got sidetracked. Don't confuse Michael Clayton with the unrelated Mark Clayton from Baltimore, but really, both are nice late-round sleepers.
