The 2015 fantasy football season is almost here and some sleeper picks for owners include CJ Anderson, Le'Veon Bell, Joseph Randle, CJ Spiller, Ameer Abdullah, TJ Yeldon, Rashad Jennings, Latavius Murray, Shane Vereen and Tre Mason as sleeper RB options, while Markus Wheaton, Mike Evans, Jarvis Landry and Amari Cooper are great WR selections.

Adrian Peterson is returning for the Vikings this season and he should have another big year, while Jamaal Charles and DeMarco Murray should have strong seasons as well. Bell is going to be out for two games this season and he is on the list because some fantasy owners could consider passing on the RB high because of the suspension. Bell could slip down a few picks in certain leagues and he is absolutely worth taking, as he was one of the most productive players in the league last season.

Sproles is a good under the radar option for the Eagles and even though DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews are coming in, Chip Kelly could still use Sproles a lot. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer & Daily News, Sproles has been lining up as a receiver in training camp for the Eagles and he could get work there with Jeremy Maclin moving on to Kansas City. Sproles has always been a skilled receiver and while he put up his lowest total of catches last season since back in 2009, Kelly could find more targets for him this year.

Joseph Randle is a strong option for the Cowboys, as Darren McFadden is not likely staying healthy all season and Randle is coming in as the starter. Randle has a slight injury now, but as long as he is healthy he is likely the starter. Shane Vereen and Rashad Jennings could be a nice one-two punch for the Giants and Jennings is looking to stay healthy this season. Vereen comes over from the Patriots and he is one of the best pass catchers out of the backfield and can also be strong in PPR leagues.

Joique Bell has dealt with injury issues and that could give Abdullah the chance to step up for the Lions this season. Abdullah is coming out of Nebraska after having a strong career and he is expected to get significant time as a rookie. CJ Anderson won out the running back by committee last season in Denver and he is expected to start off the season as the number one back.

Spiller has the chance to be a strong PPR player as well with the Saints, as he could take over where Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas left off. He will be behind Mark Ingram but should be productive as well. TJ Yeldon is a rookie in Jacksonville and will get a chance to be a starter, while Randle comes in after averaging over six yards per carry last season. Randle had 343 yards rushing in 15 games but only on 51 carries and he should be worked much more this season.
