Get some valuable steals in this year's draft. They can be the difference from first place or getting the dreaded "Sacko" (Hope there are some "League" watchers here) It is still early but preparation never hurts. Here are some quick ideas for draft sleepers: RB Joique Bell: Mikel Leshoure is falling on the depth chart leaving Bell a likely second behind Reggie Bush. The same Reggie Bush that gets hurt all the time. In a PPR league, Bell is a monster. He had 52 catches last season in limited playing time. He is also pretty good when running the ball (5 yards a carry) so he is definitely worth a look. WR Julian Edelman: With Gronk hurt, Hernandez going to jail and Welker in Denver, who is Tom Brady going to throw to? Edelman has served as a Welker lite and is going to be needed this year. He knows the offense, he knows Tom Brady, and the only other option is a very fragile Danny Amendola. I like Edelman this year as a late steal. WR Anquan Boldin: Some people may have soured on Boldin, but smart owners will look for him later on in the draft. Michael Crabtree is down with an injury and will miss a significant amount of time.  This leaves Boldin as one of the few weapons left on the receiving end. WR Jeremy Kerley: If you are in a PPR league, Kerley is a very viable option later on in the draft. Sure he has no quarterback, but he also lacks much competition. Holmes is still recovering from his injury and Stephen Hill has bust written all over him. He can be your third receiver and put up some points for you. TE Ed Dickson:  Without Boldin or Pitta this year, Joe Flacco is going to have to trust someone. Torrey Smith is solid for the long ball, but who is going to pick up the short first downs...Ed Dickson. He has been inconsistent at times, but this may be the year that he breaks out.
