Rip Van Winkle of the Day

I had a five cheese pizza last night. Much to my dissapointment, it was pretty terrible. It had about two cheeses too many. Had it been, say, only a three cheese pizza, it probably would've been a whole lot better. The morale of the story is an old cliche, less is more. The same sometimes applies to fantasy football when talking about the value of players. Getting a player of similar production, but at a later point in your draft. One of those player's is my Rip Van Winkle of the Day. Joey Galloway/WR Tampa Bay: I know, I know, he isn't a true sleeper. More like undervalued. Galloway has been consistently productive since joining the Bucs in 2004. (aside from the year he missed 6 games) Aside from that year, he's had at least 1000 yards and at least six TD's. This including a career high 6.8 YAC last year. Even while getting up there in age, he still has proven to be productive. Without Tampa still having a true #2 WR, Galloway is still the main man. The best part of it is that Galloway goes a lot later in draft than some of the bigger name WR's, making him have excellent value.
