Fantasy Football Sleepers 2011: Rookie RB and WR Sleeper Options
Rookies and other first-year players are usually the best place to find sleepers in fantasy football.
Here are some potential rookie sleepers at both running back and wide receiver:
RB Taiwan Jones, Oakland Raiders: Al Davis and the Raiders love speed and Jones has plenty of it. He's also shown the vision necessary to complement his sizzling 40 times. Even with Darren McFadden and Michael Bush in Oakland, he could have a chance to make an impact.
RB Roy Helu, Washington Redskins: He's in a good offensive fit in Washington and Helu can play right away if there are any injury issues at the top of the depth chart. He should still get carries regardless.
RB Delone Carter, Indianapolis Colts: He'll be the Colts' goal line back from day one. That should be good enough to get him over five touchdowns. Carter has impressed Colts' coaches, too, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if he's getting a good amount of touches in the Colts offense.
RB Stevan Ridley, New England Patriots: It's always risky putting faith in a Patriots running back, but Ridley has looked solid this preseason. He's a deep sleeper in many leagues. He'd especially be valuable if Benjarvus Green-Ellis gets injured.
WR Greg Little, Cleveland Browns: Little has quickly established himself as the Browns most explosive offensive weapon at receiver. He should go into the season at or near the top of the depth chart. He'll see targets from improving quarterback Colt McCoy.
WR Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers: He's on the most talented receiving corps in the NFL, but Cobb still could make an impact. He's looked really good playing in the slot. Cobb might need an injury to become fantasy relevant, but it's hard to deny what he's shown.
