I don't think a guy like Granderson or Tulowitzki qualify as sleepers. They were both top 50 fantasy players last year. This is how mine would go....


C - Geovany Soto, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, J.R. Towles

1B - Joey Votto, Billy Butler, Daric Barton, Nick Johnson

2B - Yunel Escobar (I think he qualifies at a bunch of positions too)

3B - Evan Longoria, Kevin Kouzmanoff, Dallas McPherson, Chase Headley, Jeff Keppinger

SS - Stephen Drew

OF - Matt Kemp, Justin Upton, Colby Rasmus, Michael Bourn, Adam Jones, Cameron Maybin, Lastings Milledge, Matt Diaz, Carlos Gómez, Delwyn Young, Félix Pié, Carlos Quentin

SP - Clay Buchholz, Andrew Miller, Shaun Marcum, Adam Loewen, Jason Hirsh, Brandon McCarthy, Mike Pelfrey, Rick VandenHurk, Zach Duke, Homer Bailey, Scott Baker, Matt Garza, Garrett Olson

Most are/were top prospects and obviously some names are bigger than others. I probably missed a bunch of guys also. I wouldn't waste a high pick on ANY of these guys. I wouldn't draft that many of these guys because most of them probably won't break out this year and it would just ruin your draft.

Granderson and Tulo had very fine seasons last year but I still consider them sleepers because they are being undervalued on draft day.

I haven't done any drafts yet but that doesn't really surprise me.

I hope they fall past the first few rounds, especially Granderson, because he would be a major steal.
