We all know there is really no such thing as a true "sleeper" anymore.  With all the hype by every "expert", ESPN, Rotoworld, and every other site out we will see players get hyped up like no other going into the season.  Soe workout some don't

This year players like Titus Young, Stevan Ridley, Mikel Leshoure, Kyle Rudolph, Jake Locker...the list goes on.  So I want to see who you guys think will be the players hyped up like no other coming into the season.  

I'm making a team but 1 player or 30 players will be acceptable haha.

QB - M. Vick (Tebow if he starts in Jacksonville)
RB - Jacquizz Rodgers
RB - Knowshon Moreno
WR - Ryan Broles
WR - Josh Gordon
WR - T.Y. Hilton
TE - Rob Housler
K - Limp Leg Zuerlin

Note: only reason I didn't put Kaep on is because his hype train is at full speed IMO.

Cecil "Eat My" Shorts

Bill Billchick is apparently conductor of the  Shorts hype train:

Coach Bill Belichick considers Cecil Shorts one of the best receivers the Patriots have played against this season.
"He competes hard — he doesn't take any plays off and he works hard on every route," Belichick said. "I think he does everything well. Excellent downfield receiver, he's got really good quickness off the line of scrimmage against press coverage, he breaks tackles and can take it all the way."

Shorts is the real deal, and he will get hyped just as Cruz was hyped.

Darren McFadden will be one of the running backs, I bought in big time this year and cost me dearly, but there will be excuses made and come next August, the hype will make him picked higher than where he should.

The hype train is always in full swing for DMC.  This is the first year I've  seen him go later than the first round but it was usually very early second.  Those picks are always based off on field results so now I'm interested to see how this goes coming next year.

Your league was rare.  Seeing most mocks, listening to XM Fantasy sports, he was going around halfway in 1st.  It was wierd because last year, coming off his best year (which was 2010) he went for $35 in my auction league, this year, coming off another injury he went for $62?  Talk about the hype train.  Unfortunately it was me who bought into it, not once but twice.  I traded him, then traded for him back giving up great keepers.  Its a miracle between him and Hakeem Nicks for $40 I actually finished in the money.

I think a lot of his hype this year had to do with how well he was running before the injury, and people thought with bush gone if he could get it all together and stay healthy he would be even better... but he has been disappointing this year even without his injury for a few weeks. I hope people don't make the mistake and take him again early next year. I will be steering clear. As for the hype team... Next year I think Moreno, shorts, Garcon, Ridley, Cobb, and for some reason I think Ryan Matthews again, just because Norv will be gone and I'm sure there will be a million reports about how Matthews is in the best shape of his life and how motivated he is.

I think Stafford could be a guy that is hyped up a lot.  As you can see from this board, a lot of people are down on him and I easily can see all the experts making a "bold" pick that he comes back with a vengence becasue of how much he throws and that the TDs will come.  While this all may be true its going to kill his value from all the hate.

Interesting contrarian theory.  I hope the hatefest stays strong tbh.
