I'm not sure you understand what a sleeper is.

A few guys I want late in the draft:

John Henson (as has been mentioned)
Maurice Harkless (I like most of the Magic starters actually)
Luis Scola (I see David West & Roy Hibbert getting plenty of rest during the regular season)
Reggie Jackson (starter while Westbrook is out, will play the Harden role off the bench)
JJ Redick (I think he plays better than he ever has in LA; plenty of wide open looks from Paul)
Avery Bradley

If Anthony Davis continues what he's been doing this preseason, he is arguably the best fantasy big in the league.

Came in here to say his name. He's not a sleeper, people will pick him, but I think he's underrated so far. I hope to pick him up before the people in my league do.

and for the guy that say deandre jordan, I don't about that. Last year I had him, and he straight up sucked. Benched him instead.

No one is a better fantasy big than Kevin Love.

Not really a sleeper, but Milsap is going to post 2nd round production and can probably be had in the 4th round or later.

While they are good picks, nobody is sleeping on them

Just to clarify, are sleepers defined as players who are drafted later than they should be or players who aren't drafted that should be drafted? In my opinion, it's both. Thus, I think everyone on this thread has the right idea.

Sleepers would be picks that are picked in the last few rounds when all the established players and top rookies are off the board. Players that often go undrafted and turn out to be fantasy relevant.

That's what I think it is anyways.

A sleeper is any player who is going to vastly outperform his fantasy draft position. Typically guys drafted in the first 6 rounds or so aren't sleepers, because their production is generally consistent and well known... hence the reason they are chosen in the top rounds.

Hayward.He ll have a bigger role and he ll give 3s,scoring,perhaps a steal or a block,freethrows and good percentages
Bledsoe
Kanter and Favors will explode this season
Al Jefferson will have a bigger role too
And J.Teague he ll have a stat line of 17-8-3
Brandon Knight.You can pick him at the last picks of the draft.He ll give you 3s,assists and perhaps steals

Kevin Seraphin - should get alot of minutes with Okafor out indefinitely and its only a matter of time until Nene gets injured again. Good last pick.

Corey Brewer - another last pick candidate. he should start for the twolves

Alec Burks - slated to start SG and with trey burke out should carry more load

Jeremy Lamb - good upside here

Jarret Jack - could still provide serviceable numbers for a PG/SG eligible player. If Kyrie Irving goes down he becomes a must own.

Not sleepers how I define them, but a list of players I think will be some of the better bargain picks:

Pau Gasol
John Wall
Javale McGee (fantasy doesn't care about stupid mistakes, just the numbers)
Seraphin
Shumpert
Bradley
Leonard (plays for the Spurs, so definitely under appreciated in fantasy)
Thornton
Wilson Chandler
Reggie Jackson

Guys that will make a significant (though mostly expected) jump:
Beal
Waiters
Favors
Kanter
Drummond
Davis
Butler
Bledsoe
Jonas

This is exactly how I see it. And a strategy that I use to pick sleepers is finding guys that are in their 2 or 3rd year that will get 30+ minutes a game
