2010 Fantasy Football Sleepers

Football season is here and that means it’s time for all of the fantasy football coaches to prepare their lineups for the new season. While most drafts have concluded, there may or may not be some players lingering around for you to pick up. If your draft is coming up, I’ve got some sleeper picks that could bring you to the holy land. After all, fantasy leagues aren’t won in the first five rounds, they are won in the last half of the draft. Those that picked up Pierre Garcon and Jamaal Charles late last season should know this all too well.

- Dexter McCluster (Kansas City Chiefs) RB/WR: The Ole Miss product is a spark plug just waiting to have a breakout rookie season. During the preseason, McCluster played wide receiver, running back and returned punts and kicks—and was successful at all positions. The Chiefs have already tabbed McCluster as their “big play” guy so expect him to give your team some much needed points.

- Malcom Floyd (San Diego Chargers) WR: With Vincent Jackson pretty much out of the picture, expect Floyd to be the beneficiary of Phillip Rivers accurate throws. Jackson had a 1000+ yard season in a powerful Charger offense, no reason to think  that Floyd can’t build upon the 700+ yard season he had last year.

- Mike Williams (Seattle Seahawks) WR: The former USC standout never really amounted to much during his NFL tenure. After stints with the Lions, Raiders and Titans, Williams and his overweight frame were bounced from the league. But he’s had a resurgence as a Seattle Seahawk this preseason with his old USC coach Pete Carroll at the helm. With TJ Houshmandzadeh getting the boot, Williams will step into the role as #1 wide receiver. He may go undrafted in many leagues, but he’s definitely one to watch for.

- Matt Moore (Carolina Panthers) QB: The former undrafted free agent from Oregon State quietly made his way into the Panthers starting QB position after Jake Delhomme went to Cleveland. If his 2009 season is any indication (1,783 yards passing, 11 TDs and 4 wins in 5 starts) Moore will be a good insurance pick at the QB position. As a matter of fact, with Steve Smith as your primary target, Moore could be a starting QB for some fantasy teams in deeper leagues.

- Zach Miller (Oakland Raiders) TE: In a woeful Raider offense, Miller tallied up 805 yards receiving and 3 TDs. Now that Jason Campbell (who made a pro bowler out of Chris Cooley) replacing the horrid JaMarcus Russell, expect Miller’s numbers to balloon. It also helps that the Raider wideouts aren’t very reliable. While many fantasy coaches will chase the more glamorous names like Gonzalez, Witten and Clark, Miller will surely be left for a mid- to late-round selection.
