Rivers brings up a point in his writing that no sleeper teams really came out of the woodwork this year. What do we learn by diving deeper into what happened this season? Was the lack of a true sleeper team random chance? Are there commonalities that we can draw between teams in the same “grouping” as compared to the preseason projections?
