Sleepers are the key to any successful fantasy football season, and they help make playing fantasy sports so much fun. 

Every single owner in a fantasy league has guys they think will vastly outperform their draft position, players they think are poised to break out, make "the leap" or emerge as elite options at their position.

Most of the time, those sleeper picks and late-round fliers don't work out, or aren't the stars their owners hoped they'd be, but when they hit, there are few better feelings in the fantasy sports world. 

Last season, everyone from Peyton Hillis and Arian Foster to Steve Johnson, Brandon Lloyd and even Marcedes Lewis fell squarely into the sleeper category, as did Tampa Bay's wideout Mike Williams, the Jets' LaDanian Tomlinson and Indianapolis wideout Austin Collie.

But who will become this year's sleeper stars? Which late-round picks will prove well worth the risk? 

Will it be St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford? Or perhaps Miami running back Daniel Thomas? Join us as we break down some of the biggest sleeper candidates in this season's fantasy football campaign, and figure out who's worth a look in your fantasy draft this season.
