If you are a die-hard Fantasy Football fan like each of us at Sportscollectibles.com, you have already started to do your research on the upcoming fantasy football season. But if you haven’t started yet, we will help you out with our favorite fantasy sleepers for this Fall’s NFL Season.
Almost everyone knows about the flowing blonde mane out in Duval County, Florida, sporting the #16 jersey, but not enough people are drafting him high enough and that is why he kicks off our sleeper list. Trevor Lawrence is a golden-haired and golden-armed quarterback who can make all of the throws a coach asks of him and more. With a new coaching staff after the Urban Meyer project didn’t quite work out, former Super Bowl Champion Coach Doug Pederson is looking to take the Jacksonville Jaguars to the next level. They spent heavy on the offense adding weapons for Lawrence to target like Christian Kirk and Evan Engram and even beefed up the offensive line with guard Brandon Scherff. Everyone should be on the lookout for Lawrence to be drafted in the later parts of their fantasy draft and can get some real value.
The next sleeper on our list is Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones. The former Michigan Wolverines standout is looking to capitalize on the departure of Austin Hooper, Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry. There are plenty of targets that are left on the table and Peoples-Jones looks to be in line to take a good share of them. If you are playing in a PPR (Points-per-Reception) League look no further than #11 by the Lake.
Another receiver that is looking at a breakout year is Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman. The Ravens traded away Marquise Brown to the Arizona Cardinals this offseason and Lamar Jackson will need a new number 1 receiver to hit when Mark Andrews is double-covered by defenses on third downs. Baltimore is a run-heavy offense, but they run a considerable amount of play action which could play into Bateman racking up big plays when the defenses get worn down by the J.K Dobbins-led rushing attack. Watch out for Bateman to have a big year in fantasy this year and is still being taken later in drafts.
The last fantasy sleeper we have is the Florida State Seminoles 2013 Heisman Trophy winner and National Champion Jameis Winston. The New Orleans Saints starting quarterback was hurt last season and is coming into this year with a chip on his shoulder. The Saints are a dark horse to make the playoffs this season and it is because of Winston. He has gotten better every season since entering the league and the Saints have some serious weapons on offense. They boast three major wide receivers with All-Pro Michael Thomas, newly acquired Jarvis Landry and 1st round draft pick, Ohio State Buckeyes TD record holder, Chris Olave. To make things even more unfair they have Alvin Kamara and Taysom Hill getting plenty of touches as well. Jameis Winston looks to be the beneficiary of having a plethora of weapons at his disposal and could very well win plenty of fantasy leagues this year.
