2013 Fantasy Sleepers each position



Who ya got? Here are mine:

QB: Josh Freeman - Dude passed for more yards and threw more touchdowns than Eli last year. I think he's better than the 20th QB.

RB: Steven Jackson - I know. Not exactly a sleeper, but I think given his last couple seasons people are overlooking him. I think he'll thrive in ATL. If you're looking for more of an actual sleeper, I'm thinking Joseph Randle.

WR: Dwayne Bowe - I think with a new coach and new QB he has a good year. Again, maybe not a deep sleeper, so maybe Robert Woods.

TE: Fred Davis. I was high on him last year, but it was a bit of a disappointment. I still think there is some upside if he comes back healthy. He may go, if not entirely, completely overlooked this year.

Just so many sleeper kickers to choose from, so i left that off..

I actually think he's a bit overrated. It seems he's jumped up draft boards because he's now in Atlanta. His yards and receptions have both dropped each of the last 4 seasons and he'll be 30 next week. Great flex, average #2 IMO.

Mines is QB Matthew Stafford
Dude was taken in 1st round last year in many drafts coming off his 5,000 yard season.
Last year didn't live up to hype. This year he is flying under the radar in fantasy lists. Some people have him as 9th or 10th qb. I think he blows it up with a near 5,000 yard year and could be in steal if he falls to the middle rounds.

Matthew Stafford


In our 14 team keeper league (In our 3rd season) A keeper can be kept at one spot higher than the spot drafted the previous year. Two years ago, a guy drafted Stafford in the 8th round. Lol so he'll be keeping him as his 7th round pick!

QB - Jay Cutler - Finally has a decent line in front of him. They also added Bennett and Jeffrey.

RB - Mark Ingram - Homer pick but he will give 700-800 yds and 7+ TDs

WR - Cordalle Patterson - Only question mark is character but he has incredible upside.

TE - Jared Cook - Ready for a Breakout IMO

D/ST - Browns

Wow that's a deal.


I bet someone got CJ Spiller late in the draft either last year or year before

QB - Luck. I think he'll cut down on the INTs, Fleener will be better, and having Bradshaw will help the running game be more consistent.

RB - Vereen. I like Ridley a lot too, but I think they are going to run a lot and also if they are going to use someone to catch passes out of the backfield, Vereen is there guy. He's also a one Ridley fumble from becoming the full time back for at least a game or two.

WR - I agree with Bowe. Mine is Cobb. I know he's up there, but I believe he has top 5 potential in PPR.

TE - Martellus Bennett. I think Cutler will use him as a safety net very often and in Trestman's new vertical passing offense, he could be good up the seam.

Forte is in for a big year. Go back and look at the success rate of the RB position, under his head coach, while he was an assistant.

and having Bradshaw


Good point. I really think Bradshaw helps just as much in the passing game as in the running game because of his ability to block in the backfield.

So if Luck can cut down the ints, the addition of Bradshaw should be very beneficial.

Luck needs to learn to check down to the RB....his first pass went for a TD and was a dump to Donald Brown for like 70 yards....RBs(brown.Ballard.Moore) only got 32 catches between them for 322...or like 6% of total pass yards.

D Brown caught 9 of his 13 targets(70%)...wayne caught only 106 of his 195(54%)

If Vick can stay healthy and he wins the job in Philly, he may surprise folks with a finish in Top 10 QBs.

think new college coach would gravitate to Foles(guy right out of college) versus an NFL vet who thinks internally "I know my job, you worry bout yours"

CK will go with whoever gives him the best chance to win. Leaving Vick on the bench would be a truly stupid move. If Foles is as good as he's playing in camp, he gives CK a solid backup plan if Vick gets hurt. This is Vick's job this year, IMHO.

Plus, Kelly has been running a wide open, fast paced zone read offense his whole career.

Foles is a 6'-5" tree.
