What does everyone think about potential sleepers this year. I gotta say I like Knowshown Moreno quite a bit more this year, I know he isn't a true sleeper more of a mild one but I think his value will jump a great deal from this year to next.

I think McGahee will vulture a few scores from Moreno. Some of my sleepers:
QB: Colt McCoy
RB: Tim Hightower
WR: Mario Manningham
TE: Zach Miller

I like Manningham myself. But just curious what do you see about Zach Millers situation that makes him a sleeper? I assume you mean the Seahawks Zach and not the Jags Zach.

More of a hunch than anything on Miller. Not saying he'll be great but think he could be a top 5-7 TE.

More sleepers, as I look at some rankings:
QB - Bradford, Stafford
RB - Starks, Harrison, McGahee
WR - Harvin, Amendola, Little
TE - Graham, Pettigrew

I know people will jump up and down, but I like AJ Green. He is going to be targeted. He will have some bad weeks, but I think there is potential for good value. I understand the whole don't draft a rookie thing, but I think if you can get him around #110 in a draft go for it.

Nice to hear the comments on Zach Miller. I thought his numbers were trending very well, so I made him my backup TE. I might even start him over Jason Whiten if the Seahawks matchup looks favorable on a particular week. Now if Travaris Jackson can just get him the ball....

I took a leap of faith and took A.J. Green as my 3rd WR at pick #104. I thought it was worth a shot as Green looks to have tremendous potential as a star WR in the league. Again, the issue is getting him the ball. After the Carolina game, I have more faith that the Dalton-Green connection will improve over the year.

I second the Hightower call. Also, I love Ben Tate in the late, late rounds. He's going to get touches in Houston, and the Foster injury only adds the liklihood.

Some sleepers I like:

- Todd Heap (ARI): Kolb loved throwing to Brent Celek in Philly, and I don't love anyone else that catches the ball in ARI other than Fitz. I feel like Heap could be a good 800/8 candidate, which is TE1 material that can be had in the very late rounds.

- Jacoby Ford (OAK): Quicker than a hiccup on a team that's going to really look to bomb the ball downfield off play-action (and the strong running of McFadden & Bush) with Campbell's arm.

- Roy Helu (WAS): Tim Hightower ain't starter material, IMO.

- Daniel Thomas (MIA): Reggie Bush ain't starter material either -- on first and second downs, I think you'll find the Dolphins looking to give the ball to Thomas between the tackles and let him pound away at defenders. Possibly a similar situation to LaGarrette Blount last season -- in for the running and out for the veteran on passing situations. Still, I like his upside, especially in keeper formats.
