2014 Fantasy Football Sleepers

Sleeper: A draft term for a NFL player that an owner believes is going to have a breakout season. These are usually players who are not rookies, but they can be. For the most part they are not well known NFL players. Usually sleepers are drafted in the middle to late rounds of a draft. From our Fantasy Football Dictionary

We have classified the following players as sleepers for 2014. We will be updating this list throughout the pre-season.

Name Pos Team Age Yrs
Pos. Rank
Andre Ellington RB ARI 26 1 RB - #16
BREAKOUT STUD: Ellington had a strong rookie season, averaging 5.5 yards per carry on 118 carries. He was an excellent option in the passing game as well, catching 39 passes for an average of 9.5 yards per catch. He had a total of four touchdowns. Ellington served as the RB2 behind Rashard Mendenhall, who had close to double of Ellington's rush at... Read More
Toby Gerhart RB JAX 28 4 RB - #55
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR: Toby Gerhart signed a three-year contract worth $10.5 million and was anointed the starter. The Jags have been saying he will get anywhere from 15 to 20 touches per game and be an every-down back. Despite that, I wouldn't expect too much from Gerhart as the Jacksonville offense is pitiful and not much improved over la... Read More
Christine Michael RB SEA 24 1 RB - #62
DYNASTY STASH: Michael is in line for the Seattle running job when Lynch moves on. In last year's preseason, he looked explosive. If Lynch were to get hurt, the hype for Michael would reach a fever pitch. It's difficult to gauge and it might just depend on the league. He should be thought of as a priority handcuff. If you don't own Lynch and are lo... Read More
Lamar Miller RB MIA 24 2 RB - #17
TRENDING!: The arrow is pointing up for Lamar Miller after reports out of Dolphins camp indicate the former Miami running back is taking the majority of first-team reps. Miller disappointed last season (only averaging four yards a carry and scoring two touchdowns), but this very well could have been due to a disastrous offensive line. The Dolphins ... Read More
Bernard Pierce RB JAX 24 2 RB - #109
Pierce underwent shoulder surgery in January, but is expected to open the season as the Ravens' starting running back since Ray Rice is facing suspension. The 24-year-old Temple alum fell on his face in 2013: averaging just 2.9 yards per carry on 152 carries. Both he and Rice really struggled behind what turned out to be one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL.... Read More
Khiry Robinson RB NO   1 RB - #86
Robinson went undrafted last year, but an impressive workout landed him a roster spot in New Orleans. Former head coach Bill Parcells believes Robinson's running style is comparable to the former great RB Curtis Martin. If that comparison is only half true, the Saints have a diamond in the rough. Robinson possesses a power running style and he made the most of his ... Read More
Bishop Sankey RB TEN 22 R RB - #46
DYNASTY STUD: We here at FFToolbox have Sankey ranked as the 25th-best running back; considering his situation, that may not be high enough. This ranking would make him a borderline RB2 pick. Some experts have him listed as a potential bust given his poor game tape showings, but he is going to produce at a high level. Shonn Greene is aging quickly ... Read More
