With all eyes on quarterbacks like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, many don't truly know which QB could end up being a deep sleeper pick in fantasy football. Take a look at five deep sleepers at quarterback based on preseason results.

Most people don't know just how consistent quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick can be. For three straight seasons, he has thrown for at least 23 touchdown passes, but usually gets lost in the shuffle due to being on losing teams. Fitzpatrick has done well so far this preseason with the Houston Texans.

4. Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater has been particularly sharp so far in preseason football with the Minnesota Vikings. Many believe he will ride the bench until starter Matt Cassel starts to decline, and those who drafted him will reap the benefits once his time comes. He's thrown for 283 yards in preseason football with five touchdowns and no picks. At some point this season, he will emerge nicely.

3. Geno Smith

Quarterback Geno Smith is entering his sophomore season, and many predict the New York Jets to fall flat on their faces this season. Despite the team's major issues at cornerback, Smith should still thrive in a much better system this time around. Expect big numbers out of him in a simplified offense that should net him plenty of touchdown passes to Eric Decker.

Quarterback Blake Bortles might not be seeing any starting time anytime soon, but the fact is that when he does eventually get some playing time this season, he will rise to the occasion. He's been incredible sharp in preseason play, and will be a deep sleeper for those who want to stash him until it's announced that he will get the keys to the Jacksonville Jaguars' offense.

Robert Griffin III is the ultimate deep sleeper this season, as many will write him off due to his history with injuries. Make no mistake about it: this will be RG3's big comeback year, especially with DeSean Jackson in town. Expect to see big things both on the ground and in the air as Griffin will surprise many this fantasy football season.
