Fantasy Football: Sleepers That Will Make a Splash for the 2012 Fantasy Season

With the 2012 NFL Fantasy Football season technically underway (I can’t believe it’s almost August already!), I want to take a look at some possible fantasy football sleepers that could make a splash this season.

I’m going to choose one player and two honorable mentions from each of the following positions: quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end.

Some you may agree with; some you may think I’m crazy.

I’m fine with that. You have to be a little crazy when you play fantasy sports.

In fantasy football, you have to sometimes take risks if you want to win your league. You need to study as well. It also takes some waiver-wire magic and some pure luck.

You never know when the next Victor Cruz, Rob Gronkowski or Jimmy Graham will come along. Last season I got Graham in the 10th round, and I picked up Cruz as a free agent after Week 3 on the same team. Now you would think I would have at least made the playoffs with these guys anchoring my team, right?

Think again.

Read the running backs section, and you’ll see why. Kudos also goes to Andre Johnson.

I digress. The 2012 season is upon us, and we’ll see who the next surprise player(s) are.

Who will be the next Gronk? How about the next Cruz?

Let’s find out.
