Found August 28, 2013 on Football Nation:
Deep sleepers are guys that are not drafted or rarely drafted. At least an average draft position (ADP) of 150 or greater qualifies for the deep sleeper list, with a couple exceptions as you will find below.Quarterback:As I mentioned in quarterback sleepers and busts, Alex Smith is pissed at what happened in San Francisco. Now teamed up with Andy Reid in Kansas City and a nice array of weaponry in Jamaal Charles, Donnie Avery, Dwayne Bowe, Dexter McCluster, and Anthony Fasano, I expect big things from Smith in 2013.Maybe not top five fantasy point big, but he will be relevant in 2013. With an ADP of about 130, he isn't being drafted in most standard leagues.Carson Palmer didn't factor in the last three games of 2012. Had he averaged what he had done in the previous 13 weeks, Palmer would have finished 9th in fantasy points among QBs. just behind Tony Romo and ahead of Matthew Stafford, Andrew Luck, and Russell Wilson.Hey, I was as shocked as you are when I ran those numbers!...

Kansas City Chiefs 'Terminator' Mike Catapano

Did you ever see the movie the Big Lebowski? In the beginning actor, Sam Elliot sits at the bar and narrates a story about the 'The Dude'.

Kansas City Chiefs rookie Eric Kush

by Bo Marchionte It was incredible, said Kansas City Chiefs rookie center Eric Kush standing in the visitors lockerroom at Heinz Field preparing his travel bag. Kush grew up 25 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh and played his college football at Cal. Not California University, but Cal (PA) a quick hour south from the steel city. People I haven't seen in six years yelling 'Ku...

New-look Chiefs ready for fresh start in 2013

The question wasn't even fully asked before Eric Berry shut it down. ''I'm not talking about last year,'' the Pro Bowl safety said. Doesn't matter whether the query had to do with the 14 losses that the Kansas City Chiefs endured in 2012, or the countless off-the-field distractions. Heck, it could've been about some trivial issue such as the length...
