With the conclusion of the NBA draft, basketball season is all but over—well, excluding the inevitable horrendous Mike Dunleavy signing.
This can only mean one thing: Criminally audacious fantasy football previews bordering on a ethereal indulgence to stupidity. More bad picks than any Clippers GM could possibly make in a lifetime.
(Four sentences and already two Clippers references. I still have the magic!)

It is because of the above quote that I have such a solipsistic outlook on my fantasy knowledge compared to the infinite 20-something college kids who think they know everything.
It's all a guessing game. I can't predict a future that doesn't exist.
I don't know who is going to get hurt.
I don't know what coach is going to lose his mind and start chucking the ball 40-50 times.
I don't know which rookie is going to decide his college days of smoking weed and roping in every freshman blonde with an inferiority complex are behind him.
All I can do is make predictions based on current trends.
And with that, I bring you my 2009-10 sleeper/busts list.
The sleeper category will be filled with upstart rookies, top guys that are going 2-3 spots too low, guys going 2-3 rounds too low, and guys who will break out.
I do a lot of research using team Web sites, looking through countless other fantasy writers previews, and personal knowledge. My goal is to try and bring sleepers everyone else isn't talking about.
Last year my big sleepers were Steve Slaton and Tim Hightower. Not a bad year.
Don't go taking these guys over proven All-Stars but make sure you keep an eye on them.
