2008 Master List of Sleepers: Running Backs

At the bottom of this post is the list of 14 different sources of sleeper lists that I've reviewed to compile a master sleeper list. The one thing you can count on is that if a player is appearing on a LOT of sleeper lists, they are NOT going to be a sleeper in most drafts! Let's look at the RBs, ranked by the number of sleeper lists they appear on:

6 lists - too many to really be a sleeper:
- Rudi Johnson, CIN

5 lists - still too many to be a sleeper:
- Matt Forte, CHI
- Selvin Young, DEN

4 lists - possibly still a sleeper if your league mates don't study at all:
- Thomas Jones, NYJ
- Kevin Smith, DET

3 lists:
- Ahmad Bradshaw, NYG
- Justin Fargas, OAK
- Rashard Mendenhall, PIT
- DeAngelo Williams, CAR

2 lists:
- Felix Jones, DAL
- Laurence Maroney, NE
- Willis McGahee, BAL
- Jonathan Stewart, CAR
- Michael Turner, ATL
- Ricky Williams, MIA

And the massive list of every other RB in the NFL that made one list - Jacob Hester, SD ; Maurice Morris, SEA ; Ryan Torian, DEN ; Lamont Jordan, OAK ; Julius Jones, SEA ; Jason Wright, CLE ; Pierre Thomas, NO ; Adrian Peterson, CHI ; Chester Taylor, MIN ; Chris Brown, HOU ; Michael Pittman, DEN ; Steve Slaton, TEX ; Kevin Jones, CHI ; Ray Rice, BAL ; LenDale White, TEN ; Tim Hightower, ARI ; Jerious Norwood, ATL ; Ernest Graham, TB ; Dominic Rhodes, IND ; Chris Johnson, TEN ; Kolby Smith, KC ; Warrick Dunn, TB ; Brandon Jackson, GB ; Kenny Irons, CIN ; Kenny Watson, CIN
