Fantasy Football Sleepers

I doubt this guy makes a sleeper list.. or a NFL team. Great “fail” photo though.

A fantasy football sleeper isn’t always a rookie, 3rd year player, free agent or 2nd string player who has an opportunity to start. Sleepers are players that can be had later in the draft or found on your waiver wire. Sleepers often end up falling into one of the following three categories:

  1. Emerging starter that no one saw coming (but you), good thing you picked him up!
  2. Decent bye-week guy with SOLID potential to eventually make a fantasy impact.
  3. One week wonder / one week plug-in-play.
  4. A complete waste of a draft pick or bye-week fill in.

Either way you look at them, sleepers are to be had later in the draft to minimize your risk and during the season they’re much easier to spot. But you better have a long list and rank those sleeping beauties, or else you’ll end up with a bunch of has been washed out fantasy duds.
