QB Delhomme Labeled as a “Sleeper” by Fantasy Website

With Fantasy Football on the minds of many fans these days, Panthers QB Jake Delhomme is being labeled as a “Slepper” this year by Here is what the site says about the returning Panthers QB:

Owners tend to have short-term memories in the “what have you done for me lately?” world of fantasy football. We submit to you the veteran Delhomme, who is coming off reconstructive elbow surgery after playing in just three games last season. Before that, Delhomme had thrown for better than 3,200 yards in three of his first four years in Carolina and averaged 21.5 touchdowns per season during that time. He was off a great start in 2007, having thrown for eight touchdowns against just one interception before being injured during the second half of Week 3. Clearly, there is some risk involved given the rarity of Tommy John surgery for NFL quarterbacks, but if Delhomme could return to form he may provide midround value at what figures to be the relatively low price tag of a late-round draft choice as a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
