Default 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

TE Ed Dickson of the Ravens looked damned good yesterday. I'm going to try to pick him up in all of my leagues as a #2 TE. Boldin and Evans call for a good amount of attention, which leaved Dickson single covered most of the time. You can see why the Ravens let Heap go

Lee Evans threw down the goose egg yesterday....hammered me. Starting him was almost as detrimental as my decision to take Peyton Manning. My sleeper is still sleeping.

I picked up Daniel Thomas this week after seeing him play against the Texans. I know we didn't have that great of a run D, but he still looked good and got more touches than Bush. Not to mention I had terrible depth at RB, and my starters (Foster and Moreno) are both questionable for week 3. I'm interested to see how this pick-up works out though.

AJ Green, WR for Bengals.

The Bengals have a rookie QB and were not supposed to be that good this year, but I picked him up late late late in the draft. He's my flex guy since I'm thin at RB.

Gonna' try to grab Thomas (the RB) from the Dolphins because I forgot to do that earlier this week. He's under the radar, I bet he's still available.

I'm happy with Fred Jackson so far. Most people were down on the Bills, but I had him last year as a late pickup and he's done well so far this year.

Also, Dione Branch for the Pats seemed to go very late in a couple of drafts, so I got him in two leagues. Solid production so far.

Heh sounds like we are in similar situation. I have Meachem as my flex spot. He's been doing ok considering how much Brees spreads out the ball. He's got talent, but not that many targets.

90s Aniston or Aniston from say... Horrible Bosses? All my friends said she was hot in that movie, but I can't help but compare her to how she looked in friends :/

Also don't understand why everyone thinks Kim is that hot, she's alright but I see better when I walk down the street on a busy day.
