Bobby Sylvester’s Top 10 Fantasy Football Sleepers

Bobby Sylvester’s Top 10 Fantasy Football Sleepers

There is plenty of variance in how we all define sleepers, so let me explain the guidelines I personally use. A sleeper is not someone who is currently or will soon be drafted in the top 10 rounds this preseason. Derrick Henry might just be a breakout performer, but he is by no means a sleeper. Nor is a sleeper is not someone that everyone is hyped about. I love myself some Samaje Perine, but everyone knows who he is and that he has immense upside. Finally, a sleeper is not someone who has done it before. We all know Jamaal Charles is the all-time NFL leader in yards per carry. No one needs to tell you that if he finds his way into carries, he could be an RB1.

Rather, a sleeper is someone drafted #120 or lower that hardly anyone is talking about but explode onto the scene at some point this year and be a big part of your team winning your fantasy football league championship. Some of these players last year were Tyreek Hill, Davante Adams and Jordan Howard. We have a strong idea of the types of players who perform this way seemingly out of the blue. Today, I’ll introduce you to my top ten that have a chance to be those type of players in 2017.
