Top Fantasy Football Sleepers
In July, I was pretty sure that this NFL season would be getting canceled or postponed. However, my belief on that has completely changed now. Although I don’t think it’s the safest thing, it’s looking like we may see a full season.
With the NFL season starting soon, that means fantasy football is coming up soon as well. Some of you may have already done some drafts. In this article, I am going to be listing some sleepers who may be around late in the draft or even go undrafted.
Antonio Gibson - RB - Washington Football Team
Antonio Gibson is heading into his rookie season in the NFL. Gibson is a running back from Memphis. At Memphis last season, he had 33 rushes for 369 yards and four touchdown. He also had 38 receptions for 735 yards and 10 touchdown. With Washington cutting Derrius Guice, the starting running back spot is between Gibson and Adrian Peterson. With Peterson’s age, I think Gibson will be getting the ball a lot more. His ability to make plays in the pass game will also get him on the field more.
Drew Lock - QB - Denver Broncos
In his rookie season, Drew Lock was not given an opportunity until week 13. Lock did everything he was supposed to and more. Lock went on to throw for 1,050 yards and seven touchdown. Another thing that will help the Broncos a ton is there added weapons Jerry Jeudy was a top two wide receiver in the draft. Jeudy and Courtland Sutton will be a dangerous duo. This offense will be one of the top under the radar offenses in the league.
JK Dobbins - RB - Ohio State
JK Dobbins is a rookie running back from Ohio State. It’s known how talented he is, from his college days at Ohio State. He had 2,003 rush yards for 21 touchdowns in his junior season with the Buckeyes. The Ravens drafted Dobbins in the second round which was an absolute steal. I think this is the perfect offense for a running back like Dobbins to thrive in. By the end of the season, we could see him as the starter in Baltimore.
Zane Gonzales - K - Arizona Cardinals
Typically, you don’t see a kicker on this list. However, I believe Zane Gonzales will be the best kicker in the NFL this year. His offense is one of the main reasons what. With Kyler Murray, Deandre Hopkins, Kenyan Drake, and Larry Fitzgerald all on the same offense, I think they’ll score a ton of points which will get Gonzales out on the field a lot.
Kareem Hunt - RB - Cleveland Browns
Last season, Kareem Hunt had to sit out the first eight games of the season due to suspension. However, once he came back, he was averaging around 10 ppg as the second string running back (behind Nick Chubb). Usually, when throwing the ball, the Browns typically had Hunt on the field. I think you will see him way more now that he will be playing a full season and the Browns could be getting Chubb more of a rest during some parts of the game.
Ronald Jones - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Ronald Jones is not a guy who will be available in late rounds. However, he is typically selected after a handful of running backs throughout the league in a Tom Brady, Buccaneers offense. For example take a loik at Sony Michel. He had two 900+ yard seasons. Stopping the run against an offense with Brady at quarterback is tough. Most teams expect the pass so once the Bucs run the ball, they will typically be caught off guard.
