Everyone has their own list of sleepers. The guys you feel are going way later than they should and are going to be your bargain picks.
It is bound to happen that at some point in the draft you didn't fill that position you wanted and you are scrambling to find a guy to fit that hole.
This is a list of my sleepers at each position that you should absolutely not forget about on draft day.
Doumit had his season cut short last year due to injury, but still managed to put up some solid numbers early.
Don't forget in 2008 he hit .318 with 15 HRs and 69 RBIs. The Pirates lineup is getting better and he is going off the board on average as the 10th catcher taken. Plenty of time for you to grab him late.
Davis came into the 2009 season highly touted as one of the up and coming power threats in the MLB. His issues with strikeouts and plate discipline led to a mid season trip to the minors.
Davis finished off the year strong and has been tearing it up throughout the Spring. If you need power late this is your guy.
Lets face it, second base is extremely weak. If you don't land one of the big fish than you are going to be taking some shots in the dark.
Scott Sizemore is a rookie that fell into the starting job with the Tigers after the departure of Placido Polanco. He is a little beat up after some injuries, but could be a nice late round selection.
Stephen Drew has loads of potential. He had a great 2008 campaign then had a dreadfully slow start to 2009. He picked it up in the 2nd half, but left a lot of fantasy owners disappointed. The Diamondbacks are getting better with Mark Reynolds and Justin Upton in the lineup, all which should benefit Drew in 2010.
Brandon Wood has tons of potential. He was an absolute monster in the Angel's minor league system and finally gets his shot at a starting spot in the bigs.
The Angels are a solid club and if his numbers from the minors translate over at all he would be a great late round talent with tons of upside. Don't forget this kid for 2010 and beyond, especially those of you in keeper leagues.
Now most dedicated fantasy owners aren't going to forget who Carlos Quentin is. However, I've noticed his ADPs are surprisingly low for a guy with his talent.
We know the numbers drop off was from his injury in '09 and now hopefully healthy he has potential to return to 40+ HRs. 40 HRs is a rarity at any position, so if you catch him slipping don't wait too long.
This kid was an absolute steal off the free agent wire last year. Finished up 2009 with a .305 batting average and swiped 41 bases.
Another year as a full time player he has got potential to be an elite base stealer and yet is still only going around the likes of Mark DeRosa and Johnny Damon.
Don't miss out if you are dying for steals.
Bruce came in with big expectations as a rookie and certainly delivered in the power department with 20 plus homers in his first two seasons.
There has been some criticism of Bruce's plate discipline, but don't let that put you off. This kid is still only 23 and has a ton of room to grow.
If he can up that average a bit he has the potential to be a top flight outfielder.
Marcum showed great talent in 2008 and was one of the key pieces to that Toronto rotation. He missed all of 2009 due to injury, but is finally coming back healthy.
Marcum has potential to be the ace of that staff and could be a great shot in the dark to round off the bottom of your staff.
You won't have to overpay for an arm that could easy be a No. 3 or 4 in your pitching staff if he gets back to his '08 self.
Francisco had one of the hottest starts of any closer in 2009. He didn't give up a run until May 31st.
He continued his domination until he was sidelined by injury and never really bounced back to the same dominance. He is healthy again and on a much improved Rangers team which means more opportunities.
I wouldn't be shocked to see this guy finish in the Top 10 in saves and he is currently going off the board as the 21st closer taken.
