Welcome to The Huddle’s IDP Super Sleeper Series, a 3-part (LBs, DLs, DBs) look at some IDPs that didn’t make it to our preseason top-50 rankings who have a good shot at contributing to fantasy teams this season.  Let’s finish things up now with the defensive backs.  Check back in a few weeks for another go-round at sleepers once camps are in full swing.

Bob Sanders (S - IND):  Well folks, don’t read too much into this, but Bob Sanders is entering the season 100% healthy.  Or at least entering OTAs this summer.  We all know the kind of damage Sanders can inflict if he’s healthy.  Draft Sanders with caution, but if he is indeed healthy, he could be a huge pick-up.

Danieal Manning (S - CHI):  Manning has shown that he has what it takes to be a solid fantasy contributor, but has been terribly inconsistent.  The Bear defense will be vastly improved this season, and with a sense of stability, Manning could regain enough form to produce as a solid backup DB in most leagues.

Aqib Talib (CB - TBB):  Talib is ultra-talented but has yet to become the fantasy star that fellow Buc CB Ronde Barber was.  Talib will once again cover opposing #1 WRs and will build on his 56-solo, 5 INT 2009 season.  In leagues that start CB, Talib will be worth a late-round pick as a 2nd CB.

Sheldon Brown (CB - CLE):  We love Joe Haden’s prospects as a big-time fantasy CB, and Eric Wright is firmly entrenched as one starting CB for the Browns, but Brown is just too talented to keep off the field.  With the Brown offense likely to be quite sluggish and their defense yielding yardage in chunks, there will be plenty of opportunities for all Brown defensive backs.
