The Poteau Spirit Center will begin its fall classes on Monday.
The National Football League is cranking up and will be in full swing in just a few weeks. All the fantasy football league team owners will draft their teams at the end of this month.
Here are my top three â€śsleepers,â€ť plus a few more, at each position:
1. Seattle Seahawks â€” The Seahawks used eight of 10 draft choices this year on defensive players. The injection of youth should help bolster a strong unit that went largely unnoticed last season â€” despite posting solid numbers across the board.
2. Detroit Lions.
3. Chicago Bears.
