2014 Fantasy Football Mid to Late Round Sleepers

Brian Spurlock - USA Today Sports
After a few fantasy football drafts as well as mock drafts in addition to the pre-season there are some additional sleepers to take note of for your drafts.  These sleepers are in no particular order, but should be players you add to your list of players to target.

Speaking of players to target; when it's your turn to draft and you see the rankings list from ESPN, Yahoo, MFL, etc. come up, it's much better to go off of your own rankings and do your best to disregard the rankings from the drafting site.

Zach Ertz (TE, PHI) - 4 TD's and nearly 500 yards in his rookie year, but the stats to really pay attention to are is his four TD's that came in the second half of his rookie season.  If he can stay on that same pace then I am looking for nearly 8 TD's and 700 yards this year.  He is a solid selection for a back-up TE for TD only leagues.

Reggie Wayne (WR, IND) - he is going in the 6th to 10th round of most fantasy drafts.  He should post solid PPR numbers and find the end-zone around six to nine times.  I really love his upside in PPR leagues and he has bounced back from his injury quite nicely.

DeAngelo Williams (RB, CAR) - it's no secret that the Carolina WR corps aren't setting the world on fire.  Carolina is going to have to run the ball and I wouldn't be shocked if Williams posts almost 1,000 yards and six TDs in 2014.  He is going late in drafts and his upside is solid for bye weeks and injury spot starts.

Terrance Williams (WR, DAL) - there is no doubt that Williams will never be double teamed and has been a red-zone target for Romo.  He had five TD's and 750 yards in his rookie season.  Romo looked his way a ton and he should have improved hands for 2014.

Kenny Britt (WR, StL) - I am gambling a bit here, but if he can't break out this year then it's just never going to happen.  Britt is a huge target and StL is a solid landing spot for him to restart his NFL career.  He will come super cheap and he is a nice player to have on the bench.

Carson Palmer (QB, ARZ) - I finally decided to pay attention to Palmer after he put up solid numbers last year.  Palmer will only be a back-up QB in most leagues but if you are in a two QB league most everyone is forgetting about Palmer and he has a ton of weapons around him and the running-back situation in Arizona right now isn't exactly great.
