Eno’s “Sleepers”

Short but simple piece right here. I just finished drafting my 12th league, so with an “n” of 12, let’s see who I like. The simplest way to do this is to list the players I own most. So, here we go.

Yeah, you coulda called a couple of the top guys if you’ve been following along. Remember that these are all different leagues — from scoresheet to linear weights — so some of the relievers, in particular, might make sense in some leagues and not in others. It’s a little embarrassing how often I own Lucas Duda, yes. At least I mixed it up a little?

I have no less than 8 of these sleepers in my standard Yahoo fantasy pool. I paid in the 40s for Votto, but the next highest was Santana which I overpaid at 11. My team is either going to make everyone snap out of their slumbers, or continue to hibernate through the whole summer.
