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
Donnie Avery WR --- 31 4 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Donnie Avery has the chance to surprise as the Colts' replacement for Pierre Garcon. Avery has the talent to be a good fantasy wide receiver, but he was unable to stay healthy in 2011; with the Colts offense likely to struggle in 2012, h... Read More
Greg Childs WR --- 25 R Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

The Vikings selected their 2nd Arkansas WR when they nabbed Childs with a 4th round pick in April's draft. He has ideal size (6'3, 220), but injury concerns caused a draft day slide. Childs suffered a knee injury in October 2010 and never... Read More
Danny Coale WR --- 27 R Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Frequently working out of the slot for Virginia Tech, Coale's 60 receptions helped move the chains for the Hokies. The Cowboys are looking for that type of route-runner, which makes the fifth-round selection a sneaky candidate for the thi... Read More
Tandon Doss WR JAX 25 1 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Slowed by a hernia injury, Doss went catchless in five games during his rookie season, but don't ignore his receiver gifts. The Ravens' fourth-round pick in 2011, Doss brings 6-foot-2 size and 4.55 speed to the offense, not to mention sol... Read More
Michael Floyd WR ARI 25 R WR - #58
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Arizona selected Michael Floyd with the 13th pick overall in the NFL Draft to add a much needed complement to Pro Bowl wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. With his solid size (6-foot-3, 220 pounds), the Notre Dame product should step into the... Read More
Chris Givens WR STL 25 R WR - #142
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Like Brian Quick, Givens seems to have landed in the right situation for immediate production. He's a vertical threat who ran better than a 4.4 forty time at the combine. Consistent over-the-top speed is something the Rams have been lacki... Read More
Josh Gordon WR CLE 24 R Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Succeeding in Cleveland as a wide receiver is no small feat. Supplemental draft pick Josh Gordon has a legitimate shot to break that barrier and be a contributor as a rookie. This 6'3", 225-pounder from Baylor University has already ... Read More
Lestar Jean WR --- 27 1 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Despite going undrafted out of Florida Atlantic, despite missing all of last season with a shoulder injury, Jean continues to generate interest this offseason. The 6-foot-3 target with quality hands and straight-line speed is certainly in... Read More
Marvin McNutt WR --- 26 R Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

With DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin manning the start receiver spots and veteran Jason Avant the primary backup, there is not much room for a sleeper candidate to emerge. However, with Riley Cooper's collarbone injury, the door opened j... Read More
Brian Quick WR STL 26 R WR - #49
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

The first selection on day two of this year's draft, Brian Quick might fly under the fantasy radar. Though other NFL teams overlooked him, the Rams felt Quick gave them first-round value and may be ready to hand him starter's minutes imme... Read More
Eddie Royal WR CHI 29 4 WR - #40
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Eddie Royal is a receiver who I think can do great things on the field. After a few solid seasons, he has changed teams and has not been that productive. I think Royal could resurge this season under the right circumstances. Royal has good... Read More
Emmanuel Sanders WR DEN 28 2 WR - #15
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Sanders has battled injuries during his first two NFL seasons, but remains a solid sleeper coming into 2012. He's missed 8 games due to leg/foot injuries and has just 50 catches during the past two seasons. For leagues that reward punt/kic... Read More
Mohamed Sanu WR CIN 26 R WR - #72
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Rookie Mohamed Sanu will have a chance to start opposite A.J. Green this season. Sanu is a possession receiver who could be the perfect compliment across from Green. The rookie's playing time this season will greatly depend on how quick... Read More
Golden Tate WR DET 27 2 WR - #21
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

He finished strong last season filling in for Sidney Rice and flashed tremendous playmaking potential. Tate could land anywhere between WR1 and WR5 on Seattle's early season depth chart (though the team will find a way to keep him involved... Read More
Damian Williams WR STL 27 2 Unranked
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

The 2nd year WR from USC (3rd round pick in 2010) saw an increase in playing time after Kenny Britt's season ended in week 3. His production was inconsistent at best as Williams finished the 2011 season with 45 catches for 582 yards (40 YP... Read More
