I'm thinking Mike Napoli is sleeper gold.

Meh... he still has competition in Mathis and he likely won't hit for a very high average. I don't think he is that much better from his ADP peers.

Well "gold" was probably too strong of a word, but given all the hype on Soto I believe Geovany will be drafted long before Napoli as will Salty and despite a possible .250 average I think Nap could possibly get you 70 runs, 20 hrs, and 70 rbis if he gets more than 400 ABs which as long as he stays healthy shouldn't be a problem considering that Mathis is a lousy hitter, that's pretty solid for a possibly 18th round pick in a position filled with guys who I don't expect to do any better than that that will most likely go rounds sooner, shucks he might even get you 5 stolen bases.

He became a 35 HR a year guy in my baseball mogul simulation ;-D.

My list for the last few rounds:
Edwin Encarnacion
Stephen Drew
Adam LaRoche
Hank Blalock

Zack Greinke
Ubaldo Jimenez
Mark Buehrle (He is ranked SO low on Yahoo)
John Patterson
Adam Loewen

Some mid to late round guys you could consider targeting:

Hermida
Butler
Loney (not the next Howard, but still can provide good value)
Zimmerman (not mid-round really, but if you miss out on the top 6, not a bad alternative)
Longoria
Stephen Drew
Kemp
J. Upton
Griffey (still decent numbers when healthy)
Fukudome (Japanese hitters can be a crapshoot, but worth a gamble imo if he falls far enough)
Willy Mo Pena

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

If he falls to pick 180 or later I think Ellsbury is sleeper gold.

I spewed pop out of my nose when I saw Andruw Jones listed as a sleeper. Come on guys, he batted an awesome .250. You might as well put Richie Sexson on there.

I have a few sleepers and some have already been mentioned:

Ryan Garko, only problem with him is that he splits time at first with VMart.

Ellsbury. I don't know if I consider him a sleeper, but he is going pretty late.

I think Gil Meche is a sleeper. He pitched well last year and helped me out in a couple leagues.

My final Sleeper is ARod.....

Surprised nobody has mentioned this 30 year old 3rd Baseman for the Yankees. He had a breakout season last year and finally received a decent contract for his efforts.

Richie Sexson actually is a sleeper. I really like Garko as one, though.
