QB Ryan Tannehill (Miami) – Tannehill lived up to expectations in 2014, delivering more than 4,000 yards and 27 TDs against just 12 interceptions. He was second to Lamar Miller in rushing runs and now has three good young receivers: Jarvis Landry, Ken Stills and DeVante Parker, who will join the talented quarterback. Plus, the Dolphins added the veteran presences of Greg Jennings and new TE Jordan Cameron, so the Dolphins have a lot of weapons. Tannehill is in line for a 4,500-yard season, and considering you can get it in the ninth round; those are good dividends.
Also consider: Philip Rivers (San Diego), Carson Palmer (Arizona)
RB Latavius Murray (Oakland) – Murray finally got a chance late last season and he shone. He has great speed and vision to go with a solid 6’3 “, 230-pound frame. The only threat he has to his Touches is Roy Helu catching passes out of the backfield, but Murray projects to be a workhorse this season and he should. put up with good numbers, especially if QB David Carr continues to improve with each game.
Also consider: Carlos Hyde (San Francisco), Rashard Jennings (New York Giants)
WR Charles Johnson (Minnesota) – Johnson really squared off with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater last year when Teddy got more comfortable as a starting quarterback. In the last 7 games of the Vikings; CJ had 25 receptions for 415 yards and 2 TDs. With the addition of RB Adrian Peterson and WR Mike Wallace, I hope Johnson has more room to run his routes and make a lot more plays than last year and a lot more big plays. Johnson has a large size and an existing relationship with Bridgewater. Wallace is a bigger name, but Johnson will have a bigger impact as will a steal in round 9 and beyond.
Also consider: John Brown (Arizona), Marques Colston (New Orleans)
TE Richard Rodgers (Green Bay) – Actually, Rodgers rates more as a true Sleeper than just undervalued. Earlier this summer, the concern about Rodgers was how often QB Rodgers would look in his direction, but, since the season-ending injury to WR Jordy Nelson, Rodgers becomes a bigger factor in the Offense as defenses are key in the aspect of WR Randall Cobb and Rodgers to a group of relatively unknown targets in Davante Adams, Ty Montgomery and Richard Rodgers. It’s definitely worth getting late picks in deeper leagues.
Also consider: Jordan Cameron (Miami), Charles Clay (Buffalo)
D Minnesota Vikings – The Vikings defense played very well last season, especially after the offense started to work better. The whole unit is young, especially as the offense matured and stayed on the field longer in each game. This unit is young and fast. The four forwards are not household names, at least not out of state, but Brian Robinson, Shariff Floyd, Linval Joseph and Everson Griffen are collectively more talented than 75% of the four defensive front units in the league. They were weak in the secondary last season, but the addition of rookie Trae Waynes will help motivate the unit to play better or lose their spot to him.
