Ten True Fantasy Baseball Sleepers

One of my major pet peeves is "sleeper" articles that don't really feature true sleepers.

Many of them will give you names like Andrew McCutchen, Adam Jones, or Tommy Hanson that have already made a mark in the majors and draw a premium in drafts.

Others will give you names that any good fantasy player already knows, like Gordon Beckham (pictured), Matt Wieters, or Brett Anderson.

Or perhaps they will give you the names of some top prospects with the potential to take on major roles but who have no history in the majors yet, like Stephen Strasburg or Jason Heyward.

That is not the purpose of this article. My goal is to give you a list of names that you may not know that could help your fantasy team.

None of these players are among the top 100 hitters or the top 50 pitchers on Yahoo!'s player ratings, but they are names to remember towards the end of your draft that have the potential to make a big impact.

The odds are very good that the majority of these guys flame out and find their way back to the free agents list by June. However, if they pan out, they could have a very positive effect on your fantasy team.
