Who are some deep RB sleepers (ones that may not be all that obvious to most owners). Ones that can possibly take a last round flier on I.E. Backups to injury prone stars or ones that may have an opportunity to perform sometime this season - i.e. (R.Moates, C.Buckhalter, N.Davenport, S.Davis, C.Perry, M.Pittman, M.Turner, etc.) Sometimes you have to take a flier late in the draft if you have an extra roster spot before you lose out on the wavier process.

Thx for any and all opinions!

I like Jerious Norword, Maurice Hicks- backing up Gore and C. Buckhalter. Those guys could be worth it.

Norwood is definitely a guy to grab late. Michael Turner is another one as he's proven he can be effective when called upon. Maurice Morris in Seattle is another. Coaching staff every year raves about him, but they simply can't find time for him because of Xander's durability. Who knows if a fat new contract (or some sort video game jinx) makes him susceptible? Xander has bucked the odds of being able to stay healthy for games for a long time considering the carries he gets every year. Buckhalter is another nice sleeper. Contract year for Buck and so far he has had no setbacks in his knees. He could definitely be the big RB who pounds the ball as both change of pace RB to Westbrook (like he did a few years ago when he was last healthy) and as their goal line RB.

I would have said Wali Lundy but now it looks like he opens the season as the #1 in Houston. The kid has been impressive in camp so far and will clearly have a chip on his shoulder for being drafted in the 6th round. Does anyone remember a first year starter picked in the 6th round, I bet Kubiak does? However, Wali will not have the same luxury of a talented OL that Terrell Davis ran behind.

Ciatrick Fason could find himself in a starting role later this season. The unproven Chester Taylor is clearly the #1 but Fason is making his case to replace Moore as the #2. A Taylor injury could be Fason's chance to make an impact on someone's team.

And finally this kills me to say it, but Michael Bennett. He is on team that actually made Derrick Blaylock look like a RB in 2004. LJ does not have any injury concerns at this point, but he is a running back in the NFL. No bone, muscle, or ligament is safe.
