A Fantasy Cheat Sheet from the Head Cheese

Since Thursday night's game is really about determining the final three or four spots on the Packer roster, I thought I'd take a quick break from the Green & Gold and give you my cheat sheet for fantasy football this season.

I'm no expert, but I've been playing since '83 so I've got some fantasy cred. Based on basic scoring rules, here's how I would rate each position's top 13 players as well as my top 13 overall (13 representing the number of Packer world championships). I've also included some sleepers: guys who are not projected to be fantasy starters week 1, but who might prove valuable down the road.
