Four Running Back Sleepers

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.
