It's simple: Don't sleep on Teague. (NBA.com)

Here’s a quick list of my top 20 fantasy basketball sleepers for the 2011-12 NBA season (assuming nine categories), broken down into three tiers: napping, dozing and comatose. For the full list, which includes an introduction and explanations for each listed player, head on over to DimeMag.com.

Napping (sleepers in a loose sense of the word, because just about everyone knows it):

  • Arron Afflalo (SG, TBD): Target in rounds 6-7
  • Jared Dudley (SG/SF, Suns): Target in rounds 6-7
  • Jeff Teague (PG/SG, Hawks): Target in rounds 8-9
  • DeAndre Jordan (PF/C, Clippers): Target in rounds 9-10

Dozing (these guys aren’t going to sneak up on you, but you might be underestimating their values):

  • Tony Allen (SG/SF, Grizzlies): Target in rounds 8-10
  • C.J. Miles (SG/SF, Jazz): Target in rounds 7-8

  • DeMar DeRozan (SG/SF, Raptors): Target in rounds 7-8
  • DeJuan Blair (PF/C, Spurs): Target in rounds 9-11

Comatose (for whatever reasons, these guys are often forgotten – but not by you, right?):

  • Jodie Meeks (SG, 76ers): Target in rounds 8-10
