I've started to look at the crop of sleeper RBs and WRs left over after my draft:

Brandon Tate - Does Cincy throw enough for him to have an impact?
Greg Little - Will Cleve be successful enough for him to have a big year?
Coby Fleener - OK, I threw in a TE. Does the college chemistry with Luck carry over?
Keshawn Martin - Texans have never had a reliable #2 to compliment AJ. Could he be it?
Kevin Ogletree - Dallas WRs are not the marks of consistency in terms of injury. Could he be a beneficiary?
Rod Streater - Oakland. See Ogletree comments.
Felix Jones - Is he even worthy of a spot as Murray's handcuff? Tanner has looked better.
Kendall Hunter - Has talent, but will he get enough touches?
Mike Tolbert - Did Rivera bring him in to play the same role as in SD?
Taiwan Jones - Will DMC stay healthy?

I've got 1-2 stash spots on my roster for either a cuff or a sleeper. Leaning towards Tate or Fleener for the sleeper and Jones for the cuff (Murray was one of my keepers). The Cowboy and Raider situations are interesting though

I know people are down on Jones (and with good reason, I suppose).

But after DeMarco broke his ankle last year, Felix got heavy action in three of the last four games of the season, averaging 21 touches and 16.5 ppg (PPR) in those three games.

So I think he's a worthy handcuff.

For your sleeper, I'd go with Fleener or Little. Those guys are starters and could contribute to your fantasy lineup if called upon.

Ronnie Brown, with Mathews history of injury, I see Ronnie having lots of opportunities this year.

Also Heyward Bay will explode this year, 975 yards last year, and now that he has had a full off season with Palmer, the two are destined to have a big year together. Heyward and Denarius are great value for where they are being drafted.

These guys aren't even on his list.

Forget Ronnie Brown. He's washed up.

I do like DHB this year.

x3 on DHB, solid sleeper. I don't trust Denarius' hammy.

This may not be that much of a long shot, but when the RB dust settles in Steel Town.
Look for Jonathan Dwyer to rise to the top..

Steeler RBs (minus last year) have provided consistent fantast numbers over the years. I don't see Parker when I see Dwyer. I see.... :-k ...Barry Foster.

I'll take a look at DHB. Maybe the old man knew what he was talking about when he reached to get him...

I'm tempted to drop Alex Green for Dwyer. Pack fans, am I nuts?

So I think he's a worthy handcuff.

.


I wouldn't really call him a handcuff, as he hasn't been able to hold up with a heavy workload, and I don't think he can match Murray's production if DM goes down. But there is the potential that he could be a poor man's Jamaal Charles. He can be productive with limited touches, and, if you're desperate, he could be a reasonable bye week or flex fill in later in the year.

As for the rest, Hunter is the only one I would expect any useful production out of this season. SF should run enough that he can post decent totals even with a healthy Gore getting the majority of carries.

Fleener's a possibility, but there are just so many good TEs with potential this year that I can't see him even cracking the top 15 at the position.
Ogletree could be useful if one or both of the Cowboys receivers have lingering injuries, but he's not worth much if they're healthy.

What's the word on Brandon Lafell? With Steve Smith possibly nursing an injury through the season, does Lafell become Cam's go-to guy? I don't believe Cam can sustain his rushing TDs from 2011 and he has to air it out this year. Can Lafell become his deep threat ??

Ingram stayed in our (keeper) league unpicked for a long time. I had the choice to pick Dwyer, but went with Ingram. Hope it works out for me :-D.

[-X Steve Smith will be fine, and you can do better than Lafell's ceiling
