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?

Phillip Dorsett. Dorsett played his college ball at the “U.” He’s 22 years old and was selected by the Indianapolis Colts with the 29th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

HT WT ARM  HAND  40-YD DASH 20-SS 3-CONE VERT BROAD BP
5’10” 185 lbs. 30 ¼” 9 3/8″ 4.33 sec 4.11 sec 6.70 sec 37″ 10’2″ 13 reps

 

Speed

92131-I-feel-the-need-for-speed-gif-26ny

Dorsett’s 40-yd dash time of 4.33 seconds puts him in rarified air. Chris Johnson posted the fastest time ever of 4.24 seconds at the 2008 NFL Combine. Below are the fastest times ever:

  1. Chris Johnson, RB (2008) – 4.24 seconds
  2. Dri Archer, RB (2014) – 4.26 seconds
  3. Marquise Goodwin, WR (2013) – 4.27 seconds
  4. DeMarcus Van Dyke, CB (2011) – 4.28 seconds
  5. Jacoby Ford, WR (2010) – 4.28 seconds
  6. Tye Hill, CB (2006) – 4.30 seconds
  7. Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR (2009) – 4.30 seconds
  8. Yamon Figurs, WR (2007) – 4.30 seconds
  9. Justin King, CB (2008) – 4.31 seconds
  10. Johnathan Josepth, CB (2006) – 4.31 seconds

 

Skills

You can’t teach speed, but I know what you are thinking. Not too many great players on that list. Darrius Heyward-Bey?! Trust me, as a Raiders fan that one hurts me the most. The thing is, though, Dorsett can actually catch and run the full route tree. Here is his draft profile. I thought those were skills that were prerequisites for the job of wide receiver. I guess not. Kind of like buying a car that doesn’t have wheels and a steering wheel. Colts safety Mike Adams put it best:

“When Phillip runs, you can’t really see it. It’s a smooth fast. It’s effortless. It’s gliding. The way he gets out of his breaks, it’s so smooth. I haven’t seen that in a long time. I haven’t seen guys run routes like him in a while. I can’t even describe it.”

As we have seen countless times with work-out warriors, the game of football is not purely about physical attributes. It can be a complex game at times, and is not simply a track meet.

“His football instincts and his ability to take the information from the meetings out to the practice field, I’ll give him a double thumbs up from that standpoint,” Hamilton said, via George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin, praising Dorsett’s football aptitude. “He’s a guy that our quarterback is starting to trust even more, and the more reps that he gets with Andrew the more he will be able to contribute in our offense.”

 

Comparisons

Both are similar in stature and both can fly like the wind. Hilton is 5’9” 178 lbs. and runs a 4.34 40-yard dash. Dorsett is 5’9” 179 lbs. and runs a 4.33 40-yard dash. The year Hilton came into the league (2012), he was the third receiver behind Reggie Wayne and Donnie Avery. He went on to catch 50 receptions on 90 targets for 861 yards and seven touchdowns. Hilton’s ADP that year was the #90 wide receiver and #241 overall. He finished the year as the #25 wide receiver. Not bad for a 20th round pick.

While it hasn’t been officially announced yet, there have been multiple outlets that believe that Dorsett will be the third wide receiver behind Andre Johnson and T.Y. Hilton. Right now, it seems as if Dorsett offers a more varied skill set than Moncrief. But Moncrief possesses size (6-2, 222 pounds) that Dorsett does not. Dorsett seems to have the inside track here. He can play in the slot, runs solid short and deep routes, and he is the fastest receiver the Colts have. But Moncrief, while less consistent, is explosive in his own way.
 

Opportunity

First, and foremost, Andrew Luck is the quarterback for the Colts. ‘Nuff said. According to ESPN, the Colts ran the most plays out of a three wide receiver set: 557 out of 1,105 plays (50.4 percent). After the Colts drafted Dorsett in the 2015 NFL Draft, offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton “immediately ran down to my office & ripped up some of my 3TD & 6OL, 1TE & 2WR packages.” Luck threw 616 times last year. With the Colts defense projected to be in the lower third of the league, the number of pass attempts could remain above 600. Let’s breakdown the Colts passing attack for 2015:

  • Luck is projected to throw 639 times and complete 393 passes.
  • Frank Gore is projected to catch 33 balls.
  • Y. Hilton is projected for 85 receptions.
  • Andre Johnson is projected to catch 78 passes.
  • Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener are projected for 86 passes combined.

That’s 282 receptions there. That leaves 111 on the table. Currently, FantasyPros has Dorsett projected for 30 receptions for 395 yards and 3 touchdowns. Remember T.Y. Hilton’s rookie year numbers? Just look above if you don’t.

 

Often in life, we miss the opportunities that are right in front of our face. Drafting Phillip Dorsett is the ultimate low risk/high reward player. He’s the #75 wide receiver and #223 player overall. In 12-team leagues, that’s a round 18 pick…

    In a redraft would you drop Ajay or Harvin for Dorsett?

    • Son says:

      @slimbo: I would. Ajayi is injured and Damien Williams is ahead of him. Harvin doesn’t know how to run routes.

    Dorsett or Parker?

    • Son says:

      @Sully: Tough one. I’d probably lean towards Parker.

  3. VanBurenOG says:

    I like him, but don’t think I like him more than Brandon Coleman. Thoughts? Also considering Lockett but think there’s zero opportunity right there

    • Son says:
      (link)

      @VanBurenOG: I have all three rostered on many teams. I have them ranked the same way as you. Coleman, Dorsett, and Lockett. I may have to write a Lockett article because there may be more opportunities than you think.

    Pick 2 in a dynasty. Dorsett, Montgomery, Hurns. Would it be a different answer for just this year?

      @A Hill O’ Beans: In Dynasty, I’d go Dorsett, Hurns, the Montgomery. In redraft, Dorsett, Montgomery, then Hurns.

    Would you drop Mike Floyd, Sproles or Zenner for Dorsett or C Michael?

    • Son says:
      (link)

      @jcg: Depends on your team. In a vacuum, I’d drop Michael Floyd. I worry about his fingers and John Brown and Fitz are #1/#2. I choose Sproles over Dorsett. Zenner is an interesting one. I don’t think he has much value, but if Bell can’t go then things obviously change. C. Michael…he’s uber talented but, from what I read, is not the smartest guy. Has had difficulty picking up things. This is a tough one to read. Are the Seahawks thinking of trading Michael because they have soured on him, or is it because they are in love with Thomas Rawles. Probably a combo of both.

    • Son says:

      @Timmy Shankenstien: I have Eifert on all my teams and own Cameron in some others. I’m really bullish on Eifert so, personally, I wouldn’t make that trade. I wouldn’t hate on it though. All a matter of preference.

    Had 2nd pick (AP went 1st)

    1 Antonio Brown
    2 Aaron Rodgers
    3 Andre Johnson
    4 Chris Ivory
    5 Arian Foster
    6 Todd Gurley
    7 LeGarrete Blount

    13 Owen Daniels
    14 Dwayne Bowe
    15 Jordan Reed
    16 Donte Moncrief
    17 Giants D (thought I drafted Jets D, but they were drafted 15th rd, was my oh shit moment after draft, dropping right away for another D)
    18 Khiry Robinson
    19 Josh Hill
    20 Chandler Catanzaro

    • Son says:
      (link)

      @Operation Mindcrime: I’m not crazy about your draft either. I think selecting Rodgers in the 2nd round put you behind the 8 ball. AJ as your #2? Not feeling that. Ivory as your #1 for a few weeks? Not feeling that either. I like Ivory, but not as a #1. Foster and Gurley are great upside picks and could win many of leagues. I don’t think your team is constructed well enough for them.

    Hey Son great article. Quick question i’m in a dynasty league with 14 teams half point per reception. I have the 1st and 11th pick of the draft and i think I’m going with melvin gordon first overall and then it seems like names like hurns, d. cobb, funchess, knile davis, devante parker, green-beckham, and phillip dorsett will be around. Winston and Mariota are a wild card of where they will be getting drafted so someone like Agholor could get pushed back. I’m a huge fan of Parker and dorsett. What would be your top 3 out of all these names?

            (link)

            @Henry Rowengartner: I hear you. I think Gordon has dropped off with his preseason performances. There are a bunch of backs I’d think about taking: Gurley, Abdullah, Johnson, Jones.

            As for the rank to your first post:
            1) Agholor
            2) Dorsett
            3) Parker

    Love the recommend and I am all in.

    Just drafted my team in a 14 teamer, what do you think:

    QB – Eli
    WR – Evans
    WR – Watkins
    RB – Hill
    RB – Murray
    TE – Graham
    W/R – Crabtree (until week 5)

    BN – Tyrod
    BN – Dorsett

    .2 ppr and .15 per carry. Any feedback would be great.

    Here is my team.

    Qb – Bradford,
    RB- lynch, Gordon, Stewart, foster, Sankey, deangelo
    WR- Cobb, Jeffrey, Landry, wheaton, John Brown, Crabtree, coleman
    Te- olson

    I was offered Odell and Gore for lynch. While I love the value, I’m not sure it makes my team better. Thoughts?

    No PPR, standard scoring, 2 RB, 3 WR, no flex.

    I still need to drop two for a kicker and a def.

      @Cleaver: Did you read my Lynch article? :) I think the key here is no ppr. If healthy, Lynch should be a beast. But if you believe in my Lynch article, then take the deal. :) I have reservations about ODB as well.

      • KVC

        Da Cleaver says:
        (link)

        @Son:
        Yes I did. Lynch was autodrafted since I was working right until the draft started. I started picking in round 3. Rookie mistake by not presetting my order, but I thought I could make it.

        I was also offered Dez for Lynch straight up.

        I am more confident in Dez than ODB, but there is no RB attached to the deal.

        I’m there with ya on concerns about Bekcham. Here is the list of Eli’s top WR each year. Not much consistency there.
        2005 – plaxico 1214 yards
        2006 – Plaxico 988 yards
        2007 – plaxico 1025
        2008 – Domenik Hixon 596 yards, amani toomer 580 yards, steve smith 574 yards
        2009 – Steve Smith 1220 yards, mario manningham 822, hakeem nicks 790
        2010 – Hakeem Nicks 1052, Mario Manninham 944
        2011 – Victor Cruz 1536, Hakeem Nicks 1192
        2012 – Victor Cruz 1092, nicks 692
        2013 – Vicotr Cruz 998, nick 896
        2014 – Beckahm – 1305, Randle 938

        The only time he had his top WR repeat as his top WR and also increase his yardage, you have go back to Plaxico increasing from 988 to 1025, which was still 200 yards below his previous high of 1214.

    WR STEVE SMITH SR

    • Son says:

      @Dom B: As for which defense, they are pretty close. I like them both. If you compare schedules, they both play the AFC West and AFC North. Cincy plays the NFC West and Den plays the NFC North. I think the NFC North has more potent offenses so I’d choose Cincy.

      Drop order:
      1) Eli Manning
      2) Marques Colston
      3) Keenan Allen
      4) Steve Smith Sr
      5) Blount
      6) Gio

    • Son says:

      @Dom B: In a 10 team league, there will be plenty of quarterbacks and wide receivers on the waiver wire. I always like to hold onto talented running backs. Gio backs up Hill, but Gio will still get his time. He’s talented and takes most of the passing down duties. Hill could be game script dependent. Blount is a 2 down back and you never know what Belichick is going to do.

    I’m in a 10 team , 1/2 point ppr . I’ve been debating a few moves . Can you help with advice ?

    Wr – green
    Te -ertz
    2 flex – Andre Johnson , randle
    Bench – roddy. Vereen, r Mathews , o Daniels , foster

    Would you make any changes with the following free agents ? Didn’t know if it was worth 2 stash 2 tight ends with ertz being questionable .
    – Bradford , McFadden , davante Parker , Colton ?

    Thanks

    • Son says:

      @pleasant odor: I’m not not high on Ertz. He’s not even the starter on his own team. Personally, I don’t think it’s worth it to hold 2 te’s, especially in a 10 team league. There will be plenty of guys on the waiver wire. I’d pick up Devante Parker.

  26. Randy says:

    Hi, I’m in two standard leagues where we start 2 RB, 2 WR, and 1 TE, and I need to drop someone for a kicker. In league 1, I have CJ Anderson, J-Stew, Ryan Matthews, David Johnson, McFadden, and Artis-Payne at RB, Dez, Jordan Matthews, Charles Johnson, Stevie Johnson, Brandon Coleman, and Brian Quick at WR, and Kelce/Eifert at TE. In the other league, I have CJ Anderson/Ingram/Ivory/Foster/David Johnson/Hillman, Beckham/Cooks/Charles Johnson/Stevie Johnson, and Kelce/Eifert. Who would you drop for a kicker in each?

    Also, on the topic of high end WR sleepers, would Dorsett, Locket, and/or Green-Beckham be worth added to my team(s) in place of anyone I currently have (while keeping in mind the kicker issue)?

    • Son says:
      (link)

      @Randy: Although I like both Kelce and Eifert, it’s not necessary to hold 2 te’s.

      I think the wide receiving cores for both teams are very good. No need to pick up any of those guys.

    Sup Son? I’m feeling a little hot and cold on my draft – what do you think of this team for a 12-team PPR keeper where I picked 10th in a non-snaking draft?

    I kept Eddie Lacy and Antonio Brown at values of, respectively, the 1st and 2nd round. I also kept Steve Smith, which seems like an odd choice, but I didn’t think I would get anyone better for his 14th round cost.

    I tried to grab a lot of upside to maximize my chances of finding a keeper gem, but I think that may have hurt my chances to win this year – I only have a few players who I’m absolutely confident will do well. What do you think?

    QB: Russell Wilson
    WR: Antonio Brown
    WR: Steve Smith
    WR: Allen Robinson
    RB: Eddie Lacy
    RB: Carlos Hyde
    TE: Kyle Rudolph
    Flex: Joique Bell

    Bench:

    WR: John Brown, Stevie Johnson
    RB: Duke Johnson, Danny Woodhead, Matt Jones
    QB: Jameis Winston

      @Nate: Sup Nate. You are fine at QB. I like your WR’s. RB’s are decent. Hyde is a great player but in a difficult situation. Woodhead is great in PPR and I’m very high on Matt Jones. I have doubts about Rudolph. Guy can’t stay healthy. Joique Bell has a lot of question marks. I may put one of your wr’s at flex. Not a bad team.

    David Johnson and Cutler are only two possible drops for Dorsette on my team. I have Ryan as my QB so Cutler is a backup but the QB FA crop is thin with many teams having taken a backup. I have Ellington so Johnson is his handcuff. My WRs are solid with Calvin, AJ, Wallace, and then I have Wright and Quick as WR options for my single Flex spot. Should I hold or make a drop somewhere for Dorsett. Thanks in advance Son.

      @G: How many teams in league? I don’t like holding backups at qb and te unless starters have injury risk. With that said, I’m assuming it’s a 12 team league. If everyone has a backup, that still leaves 8 qbs on the wire. Plus, I don’t like Cutler. I’d rather have Tyrod Taylor. :) Everything is relative. Value is in the eye of the beholder. If you believe holding onto Cutler is more valuable, then keep him. Dorsett is a lottery ticket. High upside but low floor. Your wide receiving core is solid.

    Is adding John Brown and dropping Marques Colston a good or bad move.

    • Son says:

      @Dom B: Yes. Many many people are high on John Brown. I do not disagree.

    Questions for a 10 team PPR league.

    Someone dropped Blount. My RBs consist of: Charles, Foster, Morris, Spiller, Bell, Coleman and WRs consist of: Calvin Johnson, Jeffrey, Matthews, Agoholor, John Brown, Garcon.

    Who would you drop for Blount and how much on a $100 FAAB would you spend?

    Also, I need to keep in mind that I have Ertz as my starting TE. If he is injured, I would have to make a move to replace him. Available options are V. Davis, Sererian-Jenkins, Donnell, Dwayne Allen. With the players on my roster, would you just replace Ertz if he is unable to go or drop a Garcon/Coleman?

    Thanks for the 2 step question.

    • Son says:

      @IOTBD: Your team is stacked. I wouldn’t drop anyone for Blount.

      I would just replace Ertz.

    Gotta defend my championship in my brother’s league:

    QB – Tom Brady
    WR – Keenan Allen
    WR – Steve Smith Sr
    RB – Jamaal Charles
    RB – Frank Gore
    TE – Travis Kelce
    WRT – Mike Wallace
    WRT – Tevin Coleman
    K – Blair Walsh
    DEF – Denver
    BN – Teddy Bridgewater
    BN – Eddie Royal
    BN – Larry Donnell
    BN – Denard Robinson
    BN – Ty Montgomery
    BN – Jaelen Strong

    My brother’s standard Yahoo with a few quirks but nothing too crazy to mention, 16 team league and I drafted 3rd. What do you think?

      @Goose!: Pretty good. Wide receivers a little weak and running back depth is an issue, but it’s a 16 team league.

    Drop Tevin Coleman for Dion Lewis on the Pats in a PPR? Seems like Dion will have a decent role with Gray getting released.

    • Dave says:

      @Dave: I could also drop Joique Bell or Vernon Davis (already have Eifert). Thanks!

      • Son says:

        @Dave: Drop Vernon Davis for Dion Lewis.

    Who would your top 8 picks be in an TD only league. We have 2 qbs (4 pts), 4 rbs/4 wrs (6pts)

    1) AP
    2) Antonio Brown
    3) Lacy
    4) L. Bell
    5) Lynch
    6. Rob Gronkowski
    7. Dez Bryant
    8. Demaryius Thomas
    9. Andrew Luck
    10. Aaron Rodgers
    11. CJ Anderson
    12. Jeremy Hill

    Would you edit these rankings?

    • Son says:

      @Penny: Hmmmm. Very interesting. I’d probably go:
      1) AP
      2) Lacy
      3) Dez
      4) CJ
      5) Hill
      6) Luck

      8) Thomas
      9) Brown

      11) Lynch
      12) Bell

        @Son: Sorry. I just realized 4 rbs/4 wrs. How many teams are in league?

        • Penny says:

          We only have 8 teams. We start all of the positions throughout the whole year. It’s total poiints scored to determine who gets 1st , 2nd, and 3rd.
