Fantasy Football Sleepers: Kyle Pitts, Khalil Shakir, Chase Brown

We all know the real fantasy football draft begins in the later rounds. This is where strategy and research are very important in building your championship roster. That especially comes with fantasy football draft sleepers. If you hit on a fantasy football sleeper late in the draft who outperforms their ADP, you’re almost guaranteed to take home a trophy. Look to grab these potential fantasy football sleepers late in your 2o24 drafts.

Kyle Pitts (TE – ATL) | ADP: 61 (TE6)

After a sensational rookie year from Kyle Pitts, he has not replicated that in the last two seasons. His sophomore year ended early, so he only accumulated 356 receiving yards. However, last year, he played the full season and only had 667 yards, meaning he had three fewer receiving yards in the previous two years combined than in his rookie season.

Some blame goes to former Falcons head coach Arthur Smith and his offense for not using Pitts or the other weapons he had. However, with a new regime, we could see a resurgence. That’s especially the case with having Kirk Cousins as his quarterback. He had a 27% target rate to the tight end last year, which was the fifth-highest in the league.

Khalil Shakir (WR – BUF) | ADP: 113 (WR56)

With Stefon Diggs gone, the Bills’ current available receivers need to step up. Last year, when Joe Brady took over the play-calling duties, Shakir began to play a significant part in the offense and led the team with eight explosive plays and three touchdowns.

The Bills snagged Keon Coleman in the draft, and the rookie could establish himself as the top receiver. Still, look for Shakir to make a name for himself when training camp begins.

Chase Brown (RB – CIN) | ADP: 117  (RB36)

Chase Brown could break out in his sophomore season now that Joe Mixon has moved on to Houston. He wasn’t used much with Mixon, but he did have some nice stretches when he got the ball. In the five games where he got four or more carries, he averaged over 3.9 yards per carry in three of them.

The Bengals did bring in Zack Moss to compete for that starting job, but he is sometimes inconsistent and has missed games due to injury. Brown is someone to keep an eye on during training camp and the preseason.
