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?Please, blog, may I have some more?
