Featured Pros: Early Fantasy Football Sleepers
What running back outside the top 50, is your top sleeper candidate?
Peyton Barber is a candidate for more work than one might expect, while everyone is hot on the trail of rookie Ronald Jones, Barber is the forgotten man. Due to Jones' slender frame Barber could also carve out a role as the team's short-yardage and goal-line back giving him more upside than a traditional handcuff. From Weeks 13-17 Peyton Barber averaged 15.6 carries for 67 yards and .2 rushing TDs while adding 2.4 receptions on 2.8 targets for 16.6 yards for a solid 9.1 standard fantasy points. While it may not be the flashiest pick, Barber should provide some value to owners on draft day.

What wide receiver outside the top 60, is your top sleeper candidate?
Tyrell Williams got a shot in the arm with the injury of Hunter Henry, though he may not have even needed it after finishing the 39th receiver in standard scoring in 2017, and 12th in 2016. Currently ranked as the 70th wide receiver and carrying and ADP point expectation of just 63.7 standard points, Williams should blow by that easily. The Hunter Henry injury does give some added upside as his "slash" line goes from 3.36 recs on 5.68 targets for 56.44 yards and .28 TDs with him in the lineup over the last two years to 4 recs on 6.57 targets for 53.71 yards and .57 TDs without.

What tight end outside the top 20, is your top sleeper candidate?
Ricky Seals-Jones is a prime breakout candidate at the position, a former highly recruited wide receiver prospect who attended Texas A&M, Seals-Jones provided a spark late in the season with Blaine Gabbert. From Weeks 11-15 RSJ averaged 5 targets a game and caught 2.4 passes for 40.2 yards and scored three total touchdowns. A seam-stretcher at tight end, RSJ had an aDOT of 11.4 last season and could be a big piece for a team lacking proven pass catching depth behind Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson.
