Excellent Players Of Sleeper Fantasy Football

sleeper fantasy football

Football is an outdoor game. Football is a family of team sports that involve, to varying degrees, kicking a ball to score a goal. There is a list of some players with their super exotic performances. Fans usually dream of themselves in their shoes. And the players of sleeper fantasy football are getting a lot of fame these days.

Jalen Hurts (QB12)

A close up of a metal object

Hurts undoubtedly isn’t a deep sleeper, but he’s the last QB1 drafted in 12-team leagues. Fantasy managers shouldn’t reach for him, but if you wait and land him near his ADP, Hurts could be a big steal. Hurts started in four games last year and scored nine touchdowns, including three on the ground. Hurts’ rushing ability adds to his fantasy value.

Jameis Winston (QB22)

A stadium full of people

Winston threw 30 interceptions the last year he was a starter, but he also threw 33 touchdown passes, which helped him rank third among quarterbacks in scoring in 2019. Third! And now he’s being coached by Sean Payton, yet he’s getting drafted 22nd among QBs. Winston could be a huge steal late in drafts.

Trevor Lawrence (QB14)

Lawrence, like Hurts, isn’t a super deep sleeper, but he’s not being counted on as a QB1 in most leagues despite his high upside. He’s a clever play in two-QB leagues and a great backup in one-QB leagues if you carry a backup. The Jaguars will likely play from behind most weeks, allowing Lawrence to pile up garbage time points.

Justin Fields (QB17)

It’s probably not wise to count on Fields as your QB1 early in the season, but he should be drafted in all two-QB leagues, and he offers significant late-season upside in one-QB leagues. The Bears will start Andy Dalton initially, but Fields will likely replace him at some point this fall.

Trey Lance (QB20)

Like Fields, Lance will begin the year on the bench, but it seems likely that he will become the 49ers’ starter at some point this season. Lance’s rushing ability will help his fantasy value once he does play. Outside of two-QB leagues, though, Lance should probably begin the year on your waiver wire watch list.

Jonnu Smith (TE17)

Smith is being drafted as a TE2 (or not drafted at all) in most leagues despite averaging 7.1 points per game last season, ninth among tight ends. Fantasy managers seem to be discounting his fantasy value because the Patriots also signed Hunter Henry, but there should be enough targets for both TEs this fall. Smith could be looking at another top-10 season, or at least close to it, but he’s getting little respect this summer.

Hunter Henry (TE18)

Smith and Henry will not be the next Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez tight end duo, but New England has proven their offense can produce two fantasy-relevant tight ends. In recent seasons, Henry has been hindered by injuries, but he was still a top-15 tight end last year, three spots higher than he’s being drafted this summer.

Blake Jarwin (TE30)

After missing all but one game last season with an ACL injury, managers overlook Jarwin going into the 2021 season. Dalton Schultz might cut into Jarwin’s snaps a little, but Jarwin had a good connection with Dak Prescott before his injury, and the Cowboys are going to throw early and often this season. In just 11 career starts (33 games), Jarwin has totaled 58 receptions for 672 yards and six touchdowns. He might be headed for a breakout season.

Jared Cook (TE15)

Cook is now 34 years old, but he can still be a threat in the red zone, and Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert threw 20 touchdowns passed inside the 20-yard line last season. Cook’s weekly value could be TD-dependent, but his 22 scores suggest that such a gamble might pay off over the last three years.

These fantasies are never-ending.
