Deep Sleeper: Josh Anderson CF
Are you desperately looking for stolen bases for your fantasy team? Need an effective outfielder at a cheap price (draft wise). Look no farther than Josh Anderson of the Atlanta Braves.

By the looks of it, Anderson will be the center fielder for the Atlanta Braves. Anderson is having a solid spring batting .292 with 2 home runs. His main asset to any fantasy team is he can flat out run. Anderson is capable of stealing 50+ bases if given the chance to play a full season. In 6 minor league seasons he stole 279 bases while batting .294.

The other reason he is likely to be the center fielder for the Braves is he is out of options. If the Braves try and send him to the minors again, he will have to clear waivers. The Braves don't want to lose one of their prospects, plus Bobby Cox has expressed confidence in him.

I suggest you draft Anderson after round 20. He will instantly give you stolen bases and will even add a few home runs into the mix. Every year we see new great players emerge and Josh Anderson could be one of those players this year.
