Fantasy football sleepers are what win fantasy football leagues.
If you're the one to draft the next surprise player, you put your team that much closer to winning a championship, along with having permanent bragging rights about how you knew it was coming all along.
Most of the time sleepers are searched for among the younger players of the NFL, but veterans can have breakout or rebound seasons as well.
Last season saw veteran receiver Steve Smith, viewed by many as done for fantasy purposes, burst back into stardom by posting 10 games of double-digit fantasy points. That was thanks in large part to rookie phenom Cam Newton becoming Smith's QB.
These next five guys might not have seasons quite as prolific as the one Smith posted last year, but they do offer the chance to be great sleeper picks if they can recapture the statistics they posted in seasons past with the help of improved quarterback play from their teammates.
