Looking for some fantasy football sleepers to highlight on your cheat sheet? Look no further! In this article, we'll delve some risky late round bets. These sleepers could help you dominate your leagues draft and bring home the bacon!
Devon Achane, RB, Miami Dolphins
5-foot-8 and 188 pounds is the only knock on this guy. Forget about the Dolphins' lackluster backfield with Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr., and Myles Gaskin. None of them can match Achane's prowess as a pass catcher. In PPR leagues, he's the hidden gem you want to snatch in the mid-to-late rounds, bringing some flex value.
Kendre Miller, RB, Saints
The former TCU running back and the latest addition to the chaotic Saints backfield. With Alvin Kamara possibly facing a suspension, Miller might just stumble into a more significant role. Jamaal Williams, ready to seize the opportunity as well, is a variable late round sleeper. Both of these guys have a chance, but Miller IMO has the edge.
Marvin Mims, WR, Broncos
This speedster averaged a mind-boggling 13.5 yards per reception in his final two college years, and now he's ready to light up the NFL. There is plenty of competition in the room, but coach Sean Payton won't hesitate to unleash the rookie to see what he's got. Don't miss out on this late-round pick, my friends.
Sam LaPorta, TE, Detroit Lions
In the deepest of leagues, you could risk a late one on LaPorta. The Lions have a penchant for utilizing their tight ends, and LaPorta is no exception. While he may not churn out consistent points week after week, he's the guy with the most upside on their roster. Don't be afraid to snag him with a late-round selection and watch him unleash his potential. Kust keep in mind TE's usually don't make a fantasy impact in year one.
Tyjae Spears, RB, Titans
This beast of a running back from Tulane is coming off a monstrous season, rushing for nearly 1,600 yards and 20 touchdowns. Oh, and did I mention he added 22 catches to his highlight reel? Spears is the ultimate package. Although he won't be stealing the starting spot from Derrick Henry, who's still going strong, he could end up being worth a flex in short order.
Rashee Rice, WR, Chiefs
We've got Rashee Rice, the SMU wideout, landing in the sweetest spot imaginable. The Chiefs traded up in the 2nd round just to get their hands on this speed demon. With JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman out of the picture, Rice will be duking it out with Kadarius Toney, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Skyy Moore for targets. Don't sleep on this late-round gem. Catch the Rice fever and watch your fantasy dreams come true!
Michael Mayer, TE, Raiders
I really don't trust rookie tight ends but this is the guy everyone's been raving about, the best all-around tight end in the entire 2023 draft class. The Raiders traded Darren Waller to the New York Giants and are in desperate need of a tight end. Austin Hooper and O.J. Howard will steal reps for sure, but none can match Mayer's sky-high potential.
