There's always that one player out there that every fantasy football owner hopes to find. And if you do, he often helps you make the playoffs or even win your league. As we near the beginning of the regular season, here are five deep sleepers to keep an eye on.

In his second year with the Kansas City Chiefs, tight end Travis Kelce may be the best receiving threat on the the roster. He has 11 catches for 193 yards and two touchdowns this preseason. He may emerge as a top-10 tight end by season's end.

Devonta Freeman may be small, but he is unbelievably quick and explosive. Let's be honest, Steven Jackson will probably be hurt at some point this year, and Jacquizz Rodgers hasn't exactly run away with the backup role. Freeman is the best option out of the backfield should Jackson get hurt, but he is definitely worth a look, especially in PPR leagues.

3. Andrew Hawkins

This comes solely on the news that Josh Gordon has been suspended for a year. Despite the presence of Jordan Cameron, the Cleveland Browns need a wide receiver on the outside, and Hawkins could be that guy. He was effective in Cincinnati, so he could have a pretty decent season.

John Brown has serious talent. He's explosive, and he could wreak havoc in the slot with Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald on the outside. Brown should see plenty of single coverage and mismatches against linebackers and safeties. He could become one of Carson Palmer's favorite targets this season.

The undrafted free agent out of the University of Miami is certainly turning heads down in Jacksonville after a fantastic preseason. In Jacksonville's third preseason game, Hurns had seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown. He may be the steal of the of the offseason for the Jags, and he could be the steal of your fantasy draft.
