Looking for help with the ranking of my WR & RB sleepers and their potential. I have listed them in the order I would draft them if still available and have also listed what round I would be looking to pick them up.

Any thoughts, suggestions, re-orders, or removals would be greatly appreciated.

It's great you have a list of players you are targeting. What I would do next is use the draft analyzer and see where you players listed fall on the tiering list. I think you will get a cllearer picture highlighting players you are targeting when you look at the big picture (all players at a given position).

Cool, if there is someone I really like after say the 3 or 4th round I usually shoot for a good round ahead of there adp so I have the best shot at getting them. The only thing I am seeing is there may be a few players in there that you are targeting a little early. Its good to be ahead of the curve but not too far.

Examples Benson and Hillis both seem early for the 5th, and particularly Rashad Jennings seems early for the 7th.

It all depends on how much you believe in someone this year for how much you should reach for them. Most of the time though I can't bring myself to reach more than 2 rounds for a player.
