He isn't a household name, yet, but he will be- therefore he needs his own thread.

Kelvin Sheppard - LB - Bills
Kelvin Sheppard is practicing as the Bills' starting middle linebacker at OTAs.
The Bills have identified last year's third-rounder as a "nucleus" player on defense, after Sheppard racked up 61 tackles in the final nine games. He's quite likely to be an every-down player and impact IDP contributor. The Bills' starting weak-side backer is Nick Barnett, with Kirk Morrison currently at SAM.

Will Sheppard finish as a top 10 LB this year?  I say yes.  What say you?

Not top 10 but top 20 is a safe bet. LB is more than just tackles. Its sacks INT's turnovers etc...tackles alone isnt going to do it. And with there being about 100 starting LB's in the NFL its much harder for a LB to be top 10 than it is for a RB, QB, even a WR. So until he starts developing a knack for creating turnovers, and big plays then I will say no.

This is why this league will be so hard. Sleepers have no where to hide.

Quote :
Bills acquired OLB Jerry Hughes from the Colts in exchange for ILB Kelvin Sheppard. Analysis: Ex-Colts GM Bill Polian's first-round picks from 2005 through 2010: DB Marlin Jackson, RB Joseph Addai, WR Anthony Gonzalez, RB Donald Brown, and OLB Hughes. Three are out of the league. Only Brown is still on the Colts, and he isn't any good. Hughes, the 31st overall pick in the 2010 draft, has five sacks through 40 NFL games with seven starts. Sheppard was a disappointment in Buffalo, so the teams are simply swapping players they no longer wanted.

Tell me about it. I had picked him up in a couple leagues cheaply as a long shot. Oh well.

I like seeing people trip over players like this that have huge breakout potential and then fall flat on their face. Bradham is this years version. Maybe this time around it can be money well spent.

Sleepers are sleepers. If no one is sleeping on them they aren't a sleeper. If you can get them at sleeper value than that is a different story, but I like seeing people compete for players like this.
