Sleeper: Nate Burleson

When it's time to select a fourth wide receiver, often times many people take the familiar veteran name. One player who isn't generating much buzz and doesn't have a vast fantasy resume is Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson.

Burleson is going to be a good value. Burleson is a starting wide receiver in an offense that will be explosive with Matthew Stafford. Calvin Johnson will draw double teams and the Lions will pass very often. Burleson didn't have eye-popping stats last season. He had just 55 catches for 625 yards with six TDs.

Burleson is in good position to succeed and he's going late in drafts. If you're looking for good value wide receiver, Burleson is one of them.
