Super Sleepers

Super Sleeper: A high risk/potential player who is mostly unknown by many fantasy football players. These players have lots of upside and could surprise with their fantasy output.

We have classified the following players as super sleepers for 2012. We will be updating this list throughout the pre-season.

Name Pos Team Age Yrs
Exp.
Pos. Rank
Vick Ballard RB IND 25 R Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Rookie Vick Ballard could be in the mix in the Colts backfield if Donald Brown or Delone Carter struggle to start the season. Brown and Carter have not been overly impressive when given the chance to play, so it is possible that Ballard ... Read More
Jackie Battle RB --- 31 5 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Battle now becomes a super sleeper on my list. With Mathews out 4-6 weeks and Brown and Brinkley working for carries, Battle should factor into the RBBC approach too. Battle can run the ball and be productive under the right set of circums... Read More
Brandon Bolden RB NE 25 R RB - #100
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Update 8-11-2012 - Similar to when the Law firm came out of nowhere to be a part of the Patriots backfield, don't be surprised if you start to hear Brandon Bolden's name mentioned a little more often. There have been rave reviews around P... Read More
Terrance Ganaway RB --- 26 R Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

With a thin backfield, anything is possible for the Jets this season. One possibility is that we could see Ganaway work his way up the depth chart becoming Greene's backup. With RG3 in front of you, the opportunities to shine were few a... Read More
Taiwan Jones RB OAK 27 1 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Jones has a window of opportunity following the off-season departure of Michael Bush. He'll likely start out as a change-of-pace back and will have to distinguish himself in that role before he can be considered a viable backup to McFadde... Read More
Lamar Miller RB MIA 24 R RB - #13
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

At this point the third running back position is up for grabs between Clay, Slaton and the rookie from "the U". Miller's style of play is similar to Reggie Bush, so he could fit in well with Miami's west coast offense. Many beli... Read More
Bernard Pierce RB JAX 24 R RB - #108
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

In recent seasons, any fantasy owner with the Ravens' starting runner has one fear: the Ravens backup at the goal line. Considering the rookie projected into the role behind Ray Rice scored 27 rushing touchdowns last season, there is reas... Read More
Daryl Richardson RB NYJ 25 R RB - #118
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Despite being one of the last players selected in the 2012 draft, Richardson has a direct line to playing time in St. Louis and could open the season behind only Pead and Jackson.

UPDATE (8/7): Richardson missed t... Read More

Evan Royster RB ATL 27 1 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Injuries provided the Penn State rookie with playing time over the final two weeks last season and Royster powered his way to consecutive 100-yard rushing games. The sneaky option in the Redskins backfield, but lack of speed suggests a li... Read More
Bernard Scott RB --- 31 3 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Bernard Scott always seems be hyped as a sleeper in the off-season, but has yet to live up to these predictions on the field. The inconsistent running back was unable to overtake Cedric Benson as the Bengals' starting running back in years... Read More
Robert Turbin RB SEA 25 R RB - #89
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Turbin is built like a tank and can move – at least on the track. Give him a little time to develop at the pro level and he should be a real chain-mover. He could very well enter the 2012 season as Marshawn Lynch's primary backup --... Read More
Shane Vereen RB NYG 26 1 RB - #33
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Vereen only played in five games as a rookie due to injuries and too many other running backs ahead of him on the depth chart. That should change this season as the Patriots attempt to get him more involved in the offense. Look for him t... Read More
