Top Ranked 2010 fantasy football sleepers by zankrank (View Consensus)
1. donovan mcnabb
donovan mcnabb could not have had a better offseason without doing anything. lesean mccoy and jeremy maclin instantly make the eagles a significantly better offense that will help mcnabb have the best season of his career. mcnabb will have an unexpectedly amazing season in '09 and should be in the top 5 fantasy quarterbacks come the end of the season. don't forget about mcnabb after the first couple rounds have passed and you still need a quarterback.
2. kevin walter
kevin walter is an improving receiver opposite of one of the best in andre johnson. in '08 walter caught 60 passes for 899 yards and 8 touchdowns. walter is one of the best options you could hope for as a third receiver on your fantasy squad. walter has improved each season and caught everyone off gaurd last year. schaub should be able to connect with walter frequently in '09 as andre johnson will be heavily covered.
3. felix jones
it seems as though everyone is forgetting about felix jones is dallas and his importance to the team. although he played in only 6 games, jones averaged 8.9 yards per carry on 30 touches and scored three touchdowns. we got enough of a look in '08 to see that jones has what it takes to be a play maker in the nfl. jones will spell marion barber, and should receive 10-15 touches a game. if you have marion barber, you should handcuff jones, and even if you don't have marion barber, felix is worthy of a draft pick to play in the wr/rb spot.
4. rashard mendenhall
rashard mendenhall is coming off a season ending injury which made his rookie year in the nfl a disappointment. in 2009 mendenhall should receive plenty of carries and will get multiple touches a game and many opportunities to make plays.
5. visanthe shiancoe
shiancoe is turning into a very nice tight end in minnesota. shiancoe nearly had 600 yards receiving and was a reliable end-zone threat with 7 touchdowns. shiancoe is worth waiting for late in the draft when the top few te's are off of the board, he should put up better numbers in '08 and will help out fantasy owners by producing very nice numbers.
6. anthony gonzalez
you can no longer grab anthony gonzalez with the last pick in your fantasy draft, but he's still a bargain. gonzalez will be the #2 wide out opposite reggie wayne and will be mannings third option after wayne and dallas clark. the colts have had consistent running back problems and should have another pass heavy season. i like gonzalez to near the 1,000 yard receiving mark and haul in around 7 touchdowns.
7. carson palmer
carson palmer is no longer a highly sought after fantasy quarterback and can be acquired very cheaply in any fantasy league. palmer played in only four games last season due to injuries, but he is back to his old self and will perform near his pre-injury output even if the bengals struggle once again.
8. patrick crayton
t.o. is out of the picture in dallas and crayton should greatly benefit. crayton will be in the #2 wr spot opposite roy williams. i expect romo and the cowboys to have a great season without the disease that is t.o., and crayton should take advantage of extra playing time and more looks then his previous five seasons in dallas.
9. sammy morris
the new england depth chart currently has morris as the starting running back over maroney and over fred taylor. morris had a very productive year with 727 yards rushing and 7 touchdowns in 13 games for the patriots. i wouldn't expect morris to have breakout numbers even as a starter, but he is definitely worth a late round pick and should have a good season
10. braylon edwards
from a top 10 fantasy pick to out of the top 20 rated wide receivers, braylon edwards has quickly fallen out of the fantasy world's good graces. in 2008 edwards had 55 receptions for 873 yards and 3 touchdowns, statistics that might look ok for most receivers in the nfl, but not for edwards who scored 16 touchdowns and had 1289 yards receiving in 2008. i expect a solid year for edwards, and he is finally a steal in fantasy due to his awful '08 campaign.
