NFL.com defines a fantasy football sleeper as “a late-round pick or waiver-wire selection who exceeds his statistical expectations and becomes a prominent option in fantasy leagues.” How would you like a player that’s being drafted in the 18th round, is the #75 player at his position, and could potentially end up in the top-30 at year’s end? Of course you would. Sit back and enjoy the little story I am about to tell you. (ADP data from FantasyPros). Begin Brady Bunch theme song

Here’s the story, of a football player, who was drafted in the first round by the Colts. He is blazing fast, like T.Y. Hilton, will he get enough snaps to make an impact? It’s the story, of the fantasy sleeper, who gets no respect at the draft. He’s behind some guy, named J.J. Nelson, and in front of Jeff Janis from Green Bay. ‘Til the one day when he scores multiple touchdowns, then we will all know that it’s much more than a hunch, that this player will somehow make an impact, that’s the way he became a part of my heart.

Who is this player that I love oh so much?

Owen-Daniels-Cover

Hey guys, just finished pouring some maple syrup on my eggs and pancakes. I hope you all can stomach the sweetness my posts have to offer. I apologize for my absence last week as my laptop kept dying over and over and was unusable. The blue screen of death and Lenovo terrorized me. Straight to the good stuff: A post about a player that could be of tremendous value past pick 100. Who is that you say? Well it is the Bronco’s TE, Mr. Owen Daniels.

Yes, my obvious Chargers bias is usually quite obvious, especially in the madness that was my Ryan Mathews love. That has subsided, but only because of circumstances out of my control. In my defense, this is the first Chargers player I’ve spotlighted this offseason, but will Dontrelle Inman be the last? Probably not. Maybe. Okay, definitely not. But he is certainly an interesting player for an interesting team, which, coincidentally, makes him very interesting in fantasy football…

The easy thing here would be to a drop a Janis Joplin pun, but I’ll just allude to it and leave it there. Why? Because I’ve been through all of my Janis puns, and I’m pretty sure whatever you come up with will be better than what I have. So there we are… Jeff Janis may be unfamiliar to most in a America, except for those of you who reside in Wisconsin. All nine of you. Granted, his prospects as a productive receiver looked a bit better with Randall Cobb’s status up in the air, but as it stands now, the Packers depth chart at receiver stays essentially the same with Jordy Nelson, the aforementioned Cobb, and both Davante Adams and Jarrett Boykin coming in ahead of Janis. Lucky for him, overtaking Boykin on the depth chart is something my great grandmother could do, and she’s been dead for roughly three decades.

To be honest, I’m not quite sure who or what Josh Hill, and that might be true for a long while. Well, I mean, I know he’s human, and that he’s also an American Football player, those seem pretty safe bets. But beyond that, I have no idea what his stock will be come opening week. He could very well be overrated by that time, perhaps underrated depending on the draft or any other transactions that may develop, or he just might remain a sleeper. In fact, I omitted him from my 2015 Way-Too-Early Rankings for the very fact that I have no idea what to do. Much like in life. I can say there are some things in his favor (mainly Drew Brees) and there are some things that may not be in his favor. Let’s discuss!
