Many times in fantasy football the difference between winning and losing can come down to the ability go against the popular choices and spot the diamonds in the rough - aka - the sleepers.
When your favorite running back is going against a top defense, you should look and see if any of these guys are going against a weak defense. If so, they might worth a shot.
It's a high-risk, high-reward strategy, so if you're going to start one, you need to be brave.
You are brave, aren't you?
Top Fantasy RB Sleepers:
Rashard Jennings - New York Giants
Jennings is big, fast and tough. In other words, he's the perfect back for the Giants offense.
Chris Johnson - New York Jets
The Jets new RB Chris Johnson has averaged 1,328 yards and 8 TDs over his six-year career. He is coming into this season with a chip on his shoulder after being released by the Titans.
Lamar Miller - Miami Dolphins
Miami's improved offensive line, along with their new Eagles-style offense, should boost Miller into the top level of NFL RBs.
Trent Richardson - Indianapolis Colts
Looking to prove last year's mediocre season was a fluke, Richardson has all the skills needed to be one of the top backs in the league.
