Top 5 Deep Sleeper Running Backs

1.Julius Jones, RB Dallas Cowboys
2.Kevin Jones, RB Detroit Lions
3.Marcel Shipp, RB Arizona Cardinals
4.Lee Suggs, RB Cleveland Browns
5a.Tatum Bell, RB DenverBroncos
5b.Quentin Griffin, RB Denver Broncos


How the hell are these guys sleepers? The Joneses and Suggs are going in the 4th to 5th round. When all is said and done, 99% of leagues will draft each of these players. This is a list of "guys who are highly regarded and most likely will cost you a decent draft pick" not a list of sleepers.

My thoughts exactly

Sleepers are supposed to be "deep" picks, not projected starters.

Here are few I'm targeting at the end of my draft:

Delvin Joyce, RB NYG

Clarence Moore, WR BAL

Mike Anderson, RB DEN

Kassim Osgood, WR SDC

I like Osgood too, I don't know if he's draftworthy though. At least not until I hear some news regarding what role he'll be playing in SD this year.

Even though it's hard for a Pat's reciever to be consistently reliable, I think Bethel Johnson could have a breakout year this year. I'm not saying 1500 yards, but I think he could approach 800-1000 yards. He has incredible speed, and if he can run better routes and catch the ball consistently, he could blossom in this offense.

Sleeper team:

QB Mark Brunell WAS (Gibbs works his magic with vet qbs)
RB Thomas Jones CHI (ok KG... maybe he's a value pick)
RB Quincy Wilson ATL (Dunn may be fading, I dont think TJ is the answer)
WR David Givens NE (Finished strong. Will be the #2)
WR Devard Darling BAL (Shouldnt be all that hard to rise to the top of the Ravens WRs)
TE Freddie Jones ARI (Always been underated, Denny Green should improve his numbers)

Givens is a good sleeper pick, along with Calico. I think Kellen winslow II will suprise many people how many times he scores this year. Kelly Cambell had a good start to a fantasy marker last year maybe he'll turn out. William Green is going way to low in drafts and should be considered a definite sleeper. In terms of value sleeper I think either of the two - Bulkhalter or T.J. Duckett will have a top 10 RB season. And you can pick either of the two in rounds 3-6.

he aint no sleeper...in any keeper league that keeps te's hes sure to have been kept...what about jerramy stevens (i have a feeling i spelt his name wrong)...the hawks didnt draft him without a purpose...with that offense taking off as it is stevens should see more catches this season---if he gets throws he can play far above mili...PLUS mili held out for parts of minicamps---stevens got all the reps with the first team...and aint nobody drafting him after last years showing...
