More Key Fantasy Football Draft Sleepers

The debate about my last fantasy football draft sleepers picks article continues to rage on. So why not stir the pot a little more with a new crop of names to consider? Some football drafts have already taken place, but the real hardcore ones wait until the last possible moment, so as to avoid picking newly injured or released players. Here are some more nuggets of wisdom.

Some More Key Fantasy Football Draft Sleepers

QB Jay Cutler, Miami Dolphins

You don’t have to like him as a human being. You don’t have to even be a fan of his body language. But inserting JCut (can we call him that?) into the Miami offense may not be such a bad thing. He’s always had a strong arm and the pocket passer tools. Plus, he’s a better scrambler than many give him credit for. The Dolphins have a good running game and a couple of great deep threats. You could do worse than drafting him in the later rounds as your backup QB. Who knows, maybe reuniting with Coach Gase will actually revive his career and wipe that sour puss off his face.

RB C.J. Anderson, Denver Broncos

Denver has a plethora of running backs to rely upon this season, including Jamal Charles. But Anderson is the incumbent, even though he is coming off a serious knee injury that cost him several games last season. He has said he has never felt this healthy or good about himself in training camp. And with the Broncos improving their offensive line in the offseason, picking up Anderson in the mid-to-late rounds could be a steal.

WR Kevin White, Chicago Bears 

The former first round pick’s name has come up recently in fantasy football news, since teammate and fellow receiver Cameron Meredith went down with a serious injury. Without a top notch QB, some fantasy owners will be reluctant to draft the mostly bust. But White is a large body on a team that desperately needs one for deep balls. He will be available in the later rounds and he could be worth a whole lot if he finally breaks out like the Bears had hoped when they made him a high draft pick.
