Who to draft: Super Sleepers

You should consider using one of your last picks on one of these seven players with upside. Profiled players include John Skelton, Taiwan Jones, Jason Snelling, Eddie Royal, and Emmanuel Sanders.

Yes, drafting an aging Brandon Stokley may not be high on many fantasy owner's lists, but you must conisder the reunion with Peyton Manning. I like Stokley as a slot receiving option this season. We have watched Manning feed Stokley the ball in the past and I do not doubt that this duo can still produce. Manning is a question mark for many, but Elway and Denver spent big money to take this chance and I think they went all in for a reason - Manning will be ready to work with his new team to produce wins. Stokley will not be the primary target for plays, but available as an option when Tamme and the wide outs are covered or in special plays. Look for Stokley to be a guy you might be able to count on in PPR leagues as a fill-in or maybe better if there are injuries or issues in Denver's offense.

Andrew Luck's college tight end might be just the late round bargain. Luck will be looking to adjust to the speed of the NFL and having his old safety valve handy is something that could prove beneficial for Mr. Fleener. I think Indianapolis is going to have a rough season and there will be ups and downs for these long-time teammates. However, the familiarity that Luck has with Fleener will pay off. Fleener might only be worth a look in PPR leagues or he could be something much more. I think he is worth a pick-up as a listed top 20 TE. My feeling is that he will probably linger in drafts given Indy's state and the feeling most fantasy owners are going to have for a new QB and a rebuilding squad. A late round pick could be perfect. Watch Dwyane Allen, as he is competing with Fleener for the starting position. Allen has talent and could steal a draft spot and fantasy points from Fleener.

Coby Fleener was drafted in 90% of MyFantasyLeague.com leagues with an average drafting position of 119.98
