Fantasy football preview 2014: Sleeper picks

*St. Louis QB Sam Bradford could challenge to crack the top 12 if he’s healthy and finally puts it together. The Rams methodically have put a few weapons around him.

*RB Rashad Jennings compiled fantasy-worthy numbers in Oakland and now gets a shot as the Giants’ feature back.

*No longer in Chicago, QB Josh McCown, who played well filling in for injured Jay Cutler, is Tampa Bay’s starter.

*WR Kelvin Benjamin (Carolina) compiled solid stats (50 catches, seven TDs) as a rookie that should only improve.

*Detroit TE Eric Ebron is on nearly everyone’s sleeper list for a reason.

*TE Ladarius Green must share time with Antonio Gates in the Chargers’ high-octane offense, but Green might compile starter-worthy stats.

*Atlanta RB Devonta Freeman, a fourth-round pick, will be extremely valuable if/when he takes the starter’s job away from Steven Jackson.

*WR Sammy Watkins (Buffalo), the top playmaking rookie from the 2014 draft, is worth a flyer late in your draft.

*RB Stepfan Taylor’s (Arizona) only problem is Andre Ellington is pretty good.

*Stash New Orleans WR Brandin Cooks for later in the season.

*Tampa Bay’s Def/ST already was decent with 31 turnovers. With Lovie Smith now running the ship, note the Bucs scored nine Def./ST touchdowns in 2012.
