There is nothing quite like having a sleeper pick pay off in fantasy sports.  Of course, for every success story, there are probably at least two or three drop-adds, but that comes with the territory.  

Sometimes when you pick a player, you know exactly what you are getting in your lineup. Other times, you make a selection expecting that 50-point player to explode for an extra 20 or 30 points.  It happens a few times every year, and the goal is to own as many of these sleepers as possible.

My definition of a sleeper pick is a simple one:  A sleeper is a player that can provide your team with more value than expected for one reason or another.  All kinds of circumstances can create a sleeper, but the theme is the same.  These are players that can perform better than their draft positioning led on.
