Fantasy football owners are always trying to be the smartest guy in the room.
Whether it's reaching on a "sleeper" to secure him on our roster before the next guy or refusing to draft a former star simply because we're under the impression that he's suddenly going to fall off the face of the Earth, we have all made great picks and we've all made blunders that make us look like complete fools.
As we head into the 2013 season, we all need to take a serious look at our preconceived opinions on players and be willing to reevaluate them based on ever-changing scenarios. One of the most surprising things I've noticed this year is the community overlooking some high-quality players who might be in a new system, on a new team entirely or just coming off of a big season that we deem to be nearly impossible to replicate.
Although each of these scenarios can cause a fantasy draft stock to tumble, it's our job, as crafty owners, to see these opportunities and capitalize on them.
In this list, we'll be taking a look at five of the most underrated players this season, all of whom have a good chance to outperform their average draft position or even break into the elite levels at their position.
