ANYBODY CAN SPOT the fantasy studs. But to unearth draft-day steals, you have to dive deep into the metrics. They'll tell you amazing things, like why Toby Gerhart is a good bet on a team that threw the ball 65 percent of the time last year, or the number of catches Jordan Cameron would have had with a better QB, or how, after being ignored in the end zone, Kendall Wright is primed to score big. So after the studs come off the board, target these five players. You'll thank us in December.
