Fantasy Football: 12 Draft-Day Dark Horses/Sleepers to Target After Round 8

In his last two healthy seasons (2009 and '10), Texans QB Matt Schaub had per-year averages of 381 completions, 4,570 yards passing and 26.5 touchdowns.

The following countdown touts 12 veteran dark horses—or fantasy sleepers—who will likely fall to Round 9 or lower in 12-team, standard-scoring drafts this month.

Instead of arbitrarily grabbing names from various pre-draft listings, I chose to exclusively work off Mock Draft Central's ongoing Average Draft Position rankings.

And at the time of this writing, every single player was slotted for an ADP value of 97 (the first pick of Round 9) or lower.

Even quarterbacks with a history of leading the NFL in passing yards couldn't avoid this form of draft-day apathy. But that just makes them golden backups with savvy GMs.

Enjoy the show!
