You're onto it, you must do pretty well in your leagues

I always look for bad teams that will look to give fringe players or rookies opportunity as the season rolls on...

Or players that have excellent per minute production, that can break out once given the minutes or an injury to a player in front of them.

You can really tell who plays and who doesn't. Bledsoe is a 3rd/4th rd pick. Al Jeff is an early 2nd. These guys aren't sleepers; but a lot of guys mentioned are primed for breakout seasons.

I've been playing for a couple years now so I have strategies that I use that are pretty successful. Another thing is that I don't overrate my players and I'm willing to trade quantity for quality and consistency.

He sure can.

Will probably be the best fantasy rookie this year by a long way.

Another name I just thought of... Monta Ellis. He is a lot better (statistically, anyway) than people give him credit.

Depends how big your league is really. An 8 team league only has 104 players in it, I don't really know who in there is going to be a true sleeper.

Another "true" sleeper is Austin Rivers. If eric gordon continues to be eric gordong (injured), rivers will get the minutes. He looked MUCH improved in summer league and preseason (big whoop i know, but that doesnt mean it wont translate to the regular season)
