Finding diamonds at the end of your draft and filling out your fantasy football bench can help separate your team from others during the bye-weeks and help you get through injuries.

Pierre Thomas (RB, NO) - Thomas is not the biggest sleeper, but I think people need to be aware with Chris Ivory going to the New York Jets that Thomas is going to have his number called more times in 2013. Thomas will go later in the draft, and running back is a position you want to have monster depth around. Ok, on to the deeper sleepers.

Michael Floyd (WR, ARZ) - Carson Palmer should change the wide receiver game in Arizona. Michael Floyd will be the No. 2 WR in Arizona and I expect the Cardinals to air it out in 2013. Floyd will never see double coverage and when teams are locking in on Larry Fitzgerald, so expect Floyd to benefit.

Alshon Jeffery (WR, CHI) - Please, please, please, Jeffery stay healthy in 2013. He is an outstanding later-round selection in your 2013 fantasy football drafts. He should have 750-plus yards and five touchdowns this year, which makes him a nice bye-week fill in.

Fred Davis (TE, WAS) - There are many fantasy owners that have forgotten how solid of a tight end a healthy Fred Davis can be. With RGIII back in business there will be no doubt that Davis will become a main target in the Redskins offense. He is a perfect backup tight end selection in your draft.

Carson Palmer (QB, ARZ) - The next Kurt Warner? Nope, but he will post solid numbers in Arizona this year with solid wide receiver targets. Plus, if Arizona plays from behind in many games, they will be throwing like a madman. Palmer presents solid backup quarterback talent that can be found in the latest rounds of your draft.
