2012 Fantasy Football Sleeper Team
If you’re looking for a sleeper in your fantasy draft this year, look no further than this list.
1) Ryan Fitzpatrick
Last season Fitz started out so well that you could have put him into the MVP conversation. But then he crashed back down to reality. However, this year Im expecting him not to be in the MVP conversation but to have a full solid season.
2) Robert Griffin III
When I watch RGIII play, I kinda see Randell Cunningham. The kid can run, he’s accurate and has a rocket launcher for down-field plays. With no running game in Washington RGIII may be their first option!
3) Alex Smith
Last season the 49ers rode their defense to the NFC Championship Game. In 2012, they may ride the arm of Alex Smith. The 49ers loaded up on offense during the summer by adding 2 wide receivers’s to join Crabtree and one of the better tight ends in the league in Vernon Davis.
1) Doug Martin
The Bucs coaching staff is comparing rookie Doug Martin to the best fantasy football player in any format, Ray Rice. If he gets close to Ray Rice’s production he could be a steal in your draft.
2) Rashad Jennings
If MJD continues to hold out or if the Jags actually do trade him, Rashad Jennings can and will rush for 1200 yards and have 10 touchdowns.
3) Donald Brown
Donald Brown is on this list because Andrew Luck can actually throw the ball, unlike Curtis Painter. With that being said, the running game should improve for the Colts. Plus, the Colts are giving Donald Brown some goalline touches too.
1) Percy Harvin
Last season when Christian Ponder took over as the starting QB for the Vikings, no WR in the league had more offensive touches than Harvin. Second-most was Wes Welker who had 74 touches. Twenty-six less than Harvin.
2 and 3) Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker
Peyton Manning must stay healthy. If he is, Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker could have amazing seasons. Think Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne.
1) Fred Davis
We rated Frad Davis as one of the top tight ends in 2012 because RGIII will be looking for a safty net and Fred Davis will be the guy. The Redskins do not and I repeat, DO NOT have a #1 running back. Look for Fred Davis to have a quite yet highly productive season.
2) Jared Cook
Jared Cook is another in a line of freaks for tight ends in the NFL. A resurgent Chris Johnson will open up the passing game for the Titans and Cook can benifit from it.
3) Coby Fleener
Colby played with Andrew Luck in college and was productive. What makes you think Luck wont look to him all year long?
