A fantasy football sleeper can cover many players, from completely off-the-grid guys going overly late in drafts to players with significant upside flying under the radar.
“Deep sleepers” are always fun to seek out, but often they’re such long shots that we can’t rely on too many of them. Therefore it is good to provide a broad spectrum when discussing sleeper targets.
The following list of players will guide you through the beginning of Round 8 (85th overall in a standard 12-team league) into the later double-digit rounds of your fantasy football drafts. The main goal is that one or several of them beat their average draft positions (ADP) by a significant margin, akin to performances from Michael Pittman, Jaylen Waddle, Elijah Moore, Amon-Ra St. Brown and Cordarelle Patterson last season. These players found in the middle or late rounds are worth targeting/reaching for vs. ADP given their league-winning upside. Other players are screaming values.
