2011 Deep League Sleeper Prospects

2011 Deep League Sleeper Prospects

This list is designed to help people in really deep leagues find possibly undervalued players in the later rounds of dynasty drafts.   It is tough to define a “sleeper,” but basically, the list contains many players with upside who were taken outside the first rounds of the 2010 draft and some other less-discussed prospects.  The players, who are not really ranked in any particular order, should obviously be taken after “traditional” top prospects.  These are just a few names, so definitely post in the comments section if you follow certain prospects (or systems) and know other possible sleepers.

Also, our site just created a facebook page!  The link is here.  Anybody interested should definitely join, and in addition to the comment board or email, we’ll be available to answer questions on facebook.
