You're Fantasy Sleepers
Post your fantasy sleepers you're keeping an eye on. Or people you just think are underrated this season.
1. Earl Bennett (Chi)- He's had the most targets from Jay Cutler in a Mike Martz offense, and looks in line to be the main possession receiver in the offense (Roy Williams? hahahahaha). The other receivers in the corp are Devin Hester, who is mostly a deep play threat, but will take the #1 corner on opposing teams more often than not. Roy Williams (bwahahahaha) who mostly hurts Knox, not Bennett, until this coach gives up on Roy. Johnny Knox, not really a threat, even after the staff gives up on Roy Williams, by that time Cutler will love throwing to Bennett, Knox is still more of a deep threat WR too. Sam Hurd possession-esque backup, and Sanzenbacher I don't know, probably special teamer/inactive on game days.
2. Andre Roberts (Ari) - Remember those seasons that the Cards had Larry Fitz, Anquan Bolden, and Steve Breaston as their WRs? They had a competent QB, and put up monster numbers? Look out, it looks like its headed that way again. Competent QB- Check, Kevin Kolb is hands down at the minimum serviceable. I have a very strong feeling that Andre Roberts is either going to reach Anquan Bolden production. Or Steven Breaston production. If it is Breaston production, I hope its Breaston as the #2 when Bolden went down with an injury. His only competition for targets (besides Fitz) is Early Doucet, and Todd Heap. I'm not too worried about Heap, I think he'll play a Leanord Pope-esque role, like the 3rd target for the QB. Early Doucet on the other hand has the shot at taking the number 2 spot, but I still think Roberts wins it, and is a better athlete. Hopefully they don't go 2a and 2b like we did with JJ and Walter
3. Denarius Moore (Oak)- This is probably my most longshot of the longshot sleepers. His QB is awful, and he's buried in the depth chart behind alot of WRs, however alot of those WR's are injured, and another one is Darius Heyward Bey. DHB is mostly just deep threat, stretching fields, and at least taking away a safety. Chaz Schillens and Loius Murphy are always, freaking, hurt. Jacoby Ford is starting to look that way too. Then you got Hagan, I don't know how he falls into play. Now why do I think Denarius Moore has sleeper potential? PPR, dude had 9 targets in preseason, 2nd only to DHB. DHB will draw the number 1 CB more often than not, and if Moores production causes the coaching staff to give him significant time in the season, lookout baby!
4. Deji Karim (Jac) - Eh, a hated rival team. I only have him as a sleeper because I'm convinced MJD will miss time. Even if he doesn't Karim will end up spelling him a few times a game. If players in your league get points for return yards, and TDs' keep a closer eye on him. Pick him up as soon as there is an inkling of a MJD injury, and wait a game to see if he still gets return duties with MJD out.
Bernard Scott (Cin) - He's another one to monitor. If you in a deep bench league, go ahead and take a flier on him. He'll get at least 20% of the workload when Cedric Benson is healthy, take over 80% when he's not. Benson has been ran so much by Cinci these last few years he has to break down eventually, even if he is constantly playing for a contract
I currently need more RB sleepers, most RBs get drafted
