Fantasy Football 2014: Ranking the 15 Best Sleepers for PPR Leagues
Elise Amendola/Associated Press

Finding a sleeper in fantasy football is like finding a needle in a pile of needles. There are a lot of candidates, and everyone will have his opinion of which player is the one you're looking for.

We have the best points-per-reception (PPR)-league sleepers you should be looking for, relative to their draft position, right here in this slideshow.

A sleeper in fantasy football is any player who dramatically outperforms his draft position. Sleepers often come in the late rounds, but they can come in the middle or even earlier rounds, too.

They are third-year receivers. They can be players just getting comfortable in their second year after relocating to a new team. They are rebound candidates coming off a disappointing year. Their fantasy values are possibly dragged down by injury risk. 

They can be in a contract year, in their prime—especially at age 27—and just might be fantasy gold in PPR formats because of the targets they are projected to receive in deference to the numbers they have yet to produce.

Our top 15 best sleepers to target in PPR leagues fill those categories and criteria to be ranked here by their potential to outperform their draft position if you were drafting today. Good luck picking through these needles.
