As we head towards the beginning of the regular season, the fantasy football draft season is hitting it's peak. Some of you may have already had your draft (why you do it so early in the pre-season baffles me), but many of you are looking for that late round 'steal', that guy that comes out of nowhere and puts up monster numbers, or at a minimum, gives you reliable flex position numbers for those of you in leagues that have that setup.
So who are the Vikings that are the top candidates for sleepers this year? To be quite honest, I think there are several, and any one of these guys could prove to be the difference between your fantasy team making the playoffs.
RB Toby Gerhart - Gerhart is now the full-fledged #2 behind Adrian Peterson, so for those of you that get Peterson in your draft (that's me, got the #1 overall pick--woo hoo!!) he is a must get in the later rounds. But that said, his role will be expanded (think Chester Taylor from a couple of years ago) and Gerhart will get his fair share of touches. He's not a week to week starter, but he's worth kicking the tires on.
