The outfield

Great talent lies in the outfield. But here is the question...

Outside of the top 10 outfielders, who has a legitimate shot at being a top 10 fantasy outfielder come seasons end? A list of 3-5 would be great! Thanks.

J. Upton, Nelson Cruz, in 500 ABs Brett Gardner can be Ellsbury '08, I wrote a sleeper post about outfielders to target:

I understand these guys are sleepers, and I have read all the "who to target" posts, but do guys like Upton and Cruz have a realistic chance at finishing in the top 10 production wise for OF? I was looking more for guys who are currently ranked 11-30 that will or can easily become top 10 OF. Kind of like a Hunter Pence. I know Cruz and Upton can be beasts, but top 10 is stretching it, isn't it?

Fair enough, but then Carl Crawford could be one because he's currently ranked 12th on some people's ranks (cough ESPN cough). Or BJ is 14th there. Those guys could be top ten easily -- You just want risers instead of fallers. So go with guys like Upton, Crawford, Grandy, Quentin, Bruce and not with Dunn, Vlad, Magglio, etc.
