Sleeper alert: Jerome Harrison

Jamal Lewis turns 30 prior to the '09 season and we already witnessed signs of him slowing down in 2008, when he barely cracked the 1,000 yard plateau (1,002 to be exact) and found the end zone just four times.

The Browns are clearly preparing for the future, having drafted Clemson's James Davis in the 6th round. But this year's RB star in Cleveland could be Jerome Harrison (photo), who showed some nice flashes last season when given the chance. He's not considered to be an every-down back, but has been compared to Jets RB Leon Washington.

This could be yet another RBBC situation, where no Cleveland RB is an every-week fantasy contributor. But when Jamal eventually wears down, Harrison is likely to benefit most. Consider him a late-round gem.
