There are sleepers. And then there are steals.
A sleeper is someone who could potentially have a big year. Most fans think of a sleeper as a previously unknown player who comes up big. However, the more general definition of a sleeper is simply any player whose performance could exceed his draft position—regardless of whether the player is known or unknown.
A steal is someone whose performance will greatly exceed his draft position.
I recently gave my list of possible sleepers who have some question marks heading into training camp.
Now I'm giving you my list of steals. These guys do not have question marks in my mind—I am all-in on these guys this year.
This list of steals is naturally significantly shorter than the list of sleepers because, after all, there can't really be that many steals.
Let's see who this year's biggest fantasy football steals will be.
