Dynasty Sleepers: Justin Fields, Derek Carr, Sam Darnold (Fantasy Football)

It’s dynasty fantasy football season, so we must target the correct veterans to help bolster our roster. The most crucial position is quarterback, so today, we will help you navigate either your start-up draft for these sleepers. Here are our top dynasty sleepers at the quarterback position. Let’s get started with a number-one overall pick.

Dynasty Sleepers (2024 Fantasy Football)

Here are some of our top dynasty sleepers to target in startup drafts or via trade in current leagues.

Justin Fields (QB – PIT)

Justin Fields is risky because he is entrenched in a quarterback battle. However, do we believe Russell Wilson still has the skill to hold off a dynamic playmaker like Justin Fields? Say what you want from his passing game, but Fields and his mobility add a wrinkle to the offense to help the Pittsburgh Steelers elevate their offense. If the team falters out the gate with Russell Wilson, then you can see a quick change of guard under center. Now is the time to trade for Justin Fields on a cheaper deal to elevate your quarterback position within your team.

Derek Carr (QB – NO)

The name of the game with Derek Carr is finding a QB2 for Sueprflex or a late-round option for QB1, allowing you to build your roster elsewhere for your team. Derek Carr was in a fundamental, vanilla offense last season. This year, they are looking to add wrinkles to the offense but, more importantly, involve some pre-snap motion to allow players like Chris Olave and Rashid Shaheed a chance to break away from their defenders. Carr has left a bad taste in dynasty managers’ mouths, but you must look past it to see the rainbows on the other side.

Sam Darnold (QB – MIN)

This would be a temporary fix for your roster. With the early bye on the Vikings’ schedule, running with Sam Darnold under center until McCarthy is ready seems to be the most feasible option for this organization. If Nick Mullens can produce an 8.82 YPA, I feel comfortable with Sam Darnold producing enough for my fantasy team with Jordan Addison, Justin Jefferson, and the rest of the squad.

The quarterback market is crucial to your fantasy football team. You need to identify the correct players to elevate your team. Not every player is a “world-beater,” but building the proper depth at the most critical position in football is the key to victory within fantasy football.
