Manny Machado is set to take a leap forward in 2013.

It's never too soon to plan for the end of your fantasy baseball draft. After all, fantasy baseball seasons are won in the later rounds.

Think about it—if you brag about drafting Mike Trout this year, you're kidding yourself; you just got lucky enough to have the first pick in the draft.

If you bragged about drafting Trout last year, you're downright insane. The guy was in the minors until late April, for crying out loud. If you picked him before the season, you were either a fortuitous fool or Biff from Back to the Future 2. There is no third option.

The true challenge is finding guys in late rounds who outperform their draft position. We're talking about young guns set to improve, risk-reward fliers and one-tool players who will rack up a particular stat for you.

Those are the guys who make the difference between a good fantasy team and a championship-caliber one. Let's take a look at a sleeper from each position that will carry you to a title.
