Fantasy Football Sleepers: NFC Edition

Shhh.... 49ers quarterback Alex Smith is still sleeping as he enters his sixth season.

The NFL season is just around the corner, meaning fantasy football enthusiasts are gearing up for a grueling season of following games on television, Internet and cell phone just to see what certain players are doing.

One of the most exciting things about fantasy football is discovering a sleeper. Someone that has been dismissed by other managers because of a lack of name recognition or simply ignorance to circumstances that will make a player have a much higher fantasy value than originally believed.

So while many of you may have already had your fantasy drafts, others are still preparing for their selections that are sure to be trashed by your friends until that guy with the name they can't pronounce puts up 150 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1. Or, as is the case with several sleepers, these guys could have gone undrafted and are sitting on the waiver wire, waiting for an astute fantasy manager to pick them up.

Either way, keep this article close to you and away from your fantasy football league members. It wouldn't be wise to alert the guy drafting one pick ahead of you about the sleeper you plan to take.

So let's check out some sleepers from the NFC, position by position and heck, I'll even throw in a defense. Oh, and when these guys win your league championship for you, feel free to send me 5% of your winnings.
