Your fantasy league is still a few weeks away from kickoff, but you want to make sure that you don't leave any gems behind again this year. Don't worry, because you've come to the right place. If you want to know who the best sleeper quarterbacks for the 2014 season are, then follow along as I guide you to glory. Here are my top five sleeper QBs.

QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is locked in as a starter for the Houston Texans, and he has a lot of weapons at his disposal. WR Andre Johnson looks to stay put after demanding a trade, and second-year WR DeAndre Hopkins is going to play a bigger role this year. TE Garrett Graham had five TDs in 2013 and Fitzpatrick utilizes his TEs well. Fitzpatrick also has RB Arian Foster as a threat in the passing game, so look for him to have his best year ever.

As a backup QB in Chicago last season, Josh McCown wowed us with 13 TDs and just one INT in limited play. Those numbers earned him a starting job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers under former Bears coach Lovie Smith, and when McCown has big WRs, he does serious damage. RB Doug Martin is healthy this year, so he'll keep the defenses honest as a ground threat, and McCown has two towering WRs in Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans to make him lethal.

If Sam Bradford can stay healthy this season, the sky's the limit for the St. Louis Rams. Zac Stacy is a bruising RB who will take a lot of pressure off of Bradford, so there is no excuse for him to not live up to his hefty contract in 2014. Bradford will benefit greatly if he uses speedy WR Tavon Austin properly in their offense. He also has WR Kenny Britt and a pass-catching TE in Jared Cook, and the latter played surprisingly well in 2013.

2. Carson Palmer

Last season, Carson Palmer threw for over 4,000 yards and 20-plus TDs, but he also threw 20-plus INTs. However, the emergence of WR Michael Floyd and projected PPR stud Andre Ellington should keep his margin of error down. The Arizona Cardinals want to use Ellington in the manner that the Chiefs used Jamaal Charles last year, so Palmer can check down as much as possible and play it safe, and that old vet named Fitzgerald ain't too shabby either.

1. Andy Dalton

Red Rocket, Red Rifle, whatever you want to call him, just know that no one on this list has more potential to explode than Andy Dalton. It's a shame that WR Marvin Jones broke his foot because his 10 TDs last year will be sorely missed, but WR A.J. Green and RB Giovani Bernard (who is predicted to get 300 touches in 2014) still make Dalton a fantasy must-grab. Dalton also uses his TEs well, so be sure to cash in as the Bengals dominate the air.
