Sleeper picks can indeed provide significant value in fantasy football drafts. These players, typically selected in the late rounds with low Average Draft Positions (ADPs), have the potential to outperform expectations and deliver unexpected returns. Here are 10 deep sleepers that fantasy football managers should consider targeting in the late rounds:
- Skyy Moore, WR, Chiefs: Moore faces competition for targets but brings playmaking upside as a rookie. With injury risk for Toney, Moore could emerge in the Chiefs' passing game. His late-round ADP offers value.
- Nico Collins, WR, Texans: Collins is the most talented Texans WR, even with additions like Woods and Brown. His upside playing with C.J. Stroud makes him an appealing late pick.
- Kenny Pickett, QB, Steelers: Pickett underwhelmed statistically as a rookie but has offensive improvements including a revamped OL and Allen Robinson at WR. His rushing ability gives fantasy upside.
- Romeo Doubs, WR, Packers: Doubs started fast as a rookie before injuries slowed him. He projects as Green Bay's #2 receiving option this year and is a nice late-round dart throw.
- Trey McBride, TE, Cardinals: McBride finished strong last season, posting a huge 21 point fantasy outing in Week 18. He could hold early-season value if Zach Ertz's injury lingers.
- Terrace Marshall Jr., WR, Panthers: Despite additions like Thielen and Chark, Marshall has the best chance to break out in Carolina this year. His late ADP makes him a great value pick.
- Kendre Miller, RB, Saints: Miller was productive at TCU, rushing for 1,399 yards and 17 TDs last season. With Alvin Kamara potentially suspended, Miller could see an expanded role behind Jamaal Williams and is worth a late-round flier.
