Fantasy Football Running Back Sleeper

I listed my quarterback fantasy sleepers. Today I want to share a two possible running back sleepers.

Lamont Jordan

I heard someone on ESPN talking about him. I was one who got stuck with him last year, and I actually got value for him, trading him. This year he isn't getting drafted until the later rounds like 6 or 7. There won't be many running back starters left at that point in the draft, so you could get great value out of him drafting him so late. Jordan is definitely someone you don't want to reach for, but if he's sitting there in the later rounds he may be worth taking a flyer on compared to the other talent available.

Maurice Jones-Drew

Some of these "ESPN Gurus" have Fred Taylor going #5 in running backs. Pretty ridiculous. However, Jones-Drew is going a little later. There are running backs better than him, since they get more carries.

Jones-Drew is going to have another great year. If you saw him play last year at all you would agree. He just runs right over people, he's almost impossible to tackle. I was surprised Taylor lasted all of last season, but who knows if that will last. Jones-Drew can be a great pick as the say #15th running back taken.

Those are my sleepers, next time I have my Wide Receiver and Tight End sleepers, then it's on to the busts!
