Are you ready for some (fantasy) football?
Strategy, determination, and a cold pint of beer are all that's required to stay competitive within your fantasy football league.
Whether that be researching for the draft, keeping up to date with injuries throughout the season, or merely fighting for that last spot in the playoffs, no one said managing a fantasy football team was easy.
Although the 2009 season doesn't officially start until September, sign-ups have begun and mock drafts are popping up all over the internet. Unless you're playing with a group of amateurs, there shouldn't be any major surprises in your first two or three rounds of drafting.
As many of us may attest to, the most pressing component of a fantasy football draft is finding that sleeper!
There wasn't any greater feeling last year than to brag to all my friends how I managed to draft Michael Turner in the third round or how I passed up on six rounds of quarterbacks to draft Phillip Rivers in the seventh.
So to kick start the fantasy football season, I'm here to take a premature look into this year's free agent pool of rookies and veterans to determine who will have the highest possibility in becoming this year's sleepers.
Here are my June picks for this year's 2009 fantasy football sleepers.
Note: All selections are based on a 12-team league.
