10 NFL Fantasy Football Sleepers In 2010

Jabar Gaffney (WR Broncos)
Gaffney has been bounced around the league through most of his career; his patience has landed him in Denver, which is starting to look like home.
Gaffney has a great understanding of the offense and the experience to be the player that can pick up the in-game wrinkle on the spot. He will be overlooked by nearly everyone at your fantasy draft for a shiny new rookie. Their loss is your sleeper steal.

Anthony Gonzalez (WR Colts)
Before Gonzalez's injury early last season, fantasy experts had him very high on their boards. Now recovering and fighting for a starting job, Gonzalez is underrated and available at a late round bargain price.
Chester Taylor (RB Bears)
This RB might take a few weeks to catch on in Chicago, yet his ability is unquestionable. Taylor is the type of player Mike Martz loves and will be used in all phases of the game. Late round gem with tons of upside.

Clinton Portis (RB Redskins)
Mike Shanahan, do I need to say anymore? The system has produce greatness out of garbage. Portis has secured the starting job and will be the focal point despite all the McNabb media.
Matthew Stafford (QB Lions)
Fantasy points have nothing to do with a teams record or whether or not they go to the playoffs. The Lions have a future powerhouse offense that will be centered around Stafford and Calvin Johnson. Once this kid realizes that nobody can cover "mega-tron" and that every other target is open due to the triple coverage, the Lions will rack up points.
Julian Edelman (WR Patriots)
Edelman is not Welker, nor will he ever be. But my god, does he do good job filling in. The Patriots love Edelman's speed and have no problems throwing him the ball 5-10 balls a game. He is the ultimate insurance piece in a season full of lingering injuries.

Arian Foster (RB Texans)
Foster is unproven, yet has looked excellent this pre-season. Slaton is in the doghouse and 2nd round rookie Ben Tate is on IR; it's his job to lose.
Foster will not disappoint on such a high-powered offense. The Texans have never had an every down RB and while clearly this kid is not the answer just yet, he will be given every opportunity to try to secure that title.
Mike Williams (WR Seahawks)
Pity points? Not the way Pete Carroll sees it. Mike Williams is a born again sleeper that has a chance to add a fresh element into the Hawks line-up. He is tall with good vertical leap and (for the most part) understands what Carroll is trying to install in Seattle. Williams is a late round gem that could be a diamond in the rough.
 Anthony Dixon (RB 49er's)
As much as I love Frank Gore, his history of injuries can't be ignored. The 49ers have a massive offensive line and Dixon's impressive pre-season should spill over into a solid number 2 role in San Francisco. Great sleeper RB with a ton of upside.
 Jermaine Gresham (TE Bengals)
(Almost at the point where you can't call him a sleeper, but it is a deep year at tight end.) Gresham has looked amazing in his brief cameo performance in orange and black. His solid play might have been the answer the Bengals needed in releasing A.Byrant. While the attention is on the attention-whores (T.O and Ochocinco) The middle of the field will be wide open for this monster rookie.
