2014 Fantasy Football Sleepers to Consider in the Last Rounds

USA Today
You know those last couple rounds of the draft when everyone is not excited about drafting anymore?  That's the time to capitalize on players to build up your bench or have potential to break-out.

My first recommendation is to draft a kicker with your last round pick.  I don't believe the kickers are game changers and if you think about this logically you will get a top 12 kicker with the last pick as most people don't draft two kickers.  I always wait until the end on my kicker.

Here are players to consider with your last round pick in no particular order:

Dexter McCluster (RB, TEN) - did you see what Danny Woodhead did last year?  Well there is a new coach in town and McCluster is the next Danny Woodhead so if you are in a PPR league then grab Dexter.

Carson Palmer (QB, ARZ) - I would like to believe that Palmer won't go in the last rounds, but it's going to happen and if you have been following this website you know how high I am on Palmer for the 2014 season.

Stepfan Taylor (RB, ARZ) - Andre Ellington is a solid back, but at the same time it doesn't appear that he is going to get all of the carries.  Ellington is a smaller back and could be more prone to injuries or not getting the red-zone carries.  Taylor is a bigger back and he could be the target for the goal-line shots.  The nice thing about Taylor is that he can catch the ball as well when needed.  The "buyer beware" warning with Taylor is that Dwyer did play for Arians a while back and if Taylor can't produce at the goalline then Dwyer will get the chance.  Stepfan is a bit of a boom or bust this year.

Jordan Todman (RB, JAX) - if you draft Gerhart you must consider Todman in the last rounds.  The things I like about Todman is the fact he can run the ball when given the chance, he has great hands, and he plays on kick-off returns if you league awards points for special teams.  He is a nice change of pace back for Gerhart.

Kenny Britt (WR, StL) - he is a true gamble, but St. Louis could be the chance he needs to actually come back in his career.  He is a bit of a walking hospital at times, but if you can get him with your last pick he could really reward you.

Malcom Floyd (WR, SD) - I think everyone has forgotten about Floyd, but he can be very solid and it's been heard that he is the MVP of camp this off-season.
