Who are some sleepers this year?

I'm just getting into my "fantasy gear" but I am looking at a few players that have high upside and are currently getting drafted fairly late:

Lamar Miller, RB, MIA (ADP- 7.03)
Terrance Williams, WR, DAL (7.08)
Kendall Wright, WR TEN (8.04)
Tavon Austin, WR, STL (10.01)
DeAndre Hopkins, WR, HOU (11.06)
Devonta Freeman, RB, ATL (10.03)
Aaron Dobson, WR, NE (12.05)
Justin Hunter, WR, TEN (14.01)

I will be adding more to this list, but these guys are currently on my radar.

Thats a solid list. What about Sankey?

I like Sankey, he is definitely going to get an opportunity to be the featured back in that offense now that Chris Johnson is gone. However, he is currently being drafted in the early 4th round in most mock drafts as he continues to gather more hype. That puts him inside the Top 20 RBs which makes him a low-end RB2 or a solid Flex play. He is definitely worth taking because of his potential upside and if I didn't like my RBs in the first 3 rounds then I would grab him, but he is going in the same round as such players like: Victor Cruz, Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree, Wes Welker, Percy Harvin, Larry Fitzgerald, etc. So it would really depend on how confident you are in his ability to pass up solid guys like that. My only concern is that his ADP will continue to move up into the 2nd-3rd rounds.

Personally I like Cordarrelle Patterson as a 4th-5th round sleeper better.

Corderrelle Patterson is one to watch this year.
One of my leagues already started this past Saturday. Standard scoring in a 14 man league.

Would you guys trade Alfred Morris and Keenan Allen for montee ball and Torrey smith?

My team:

Qb p. manning
Rb morris
Rb Ridley
Wr Alshon Jeffery
WR Keenan Allen
Wr amendola
Te Vernon Davis
Flex Boldin
Def sf

Bench:
Bernard pierce
Justin hunter
Tony romo
Jordan Mathews
Christine Michael
Marcus lattimore



I really want to pair up ball with manning but I feel like I'm giving up proven players for potential. Then again, morris makes me a little nervous without shanahan

I think I would accept that trade, I really like Ball this season. RBs that play behind Manning normally do extremely well and with Moreno gone Ball will have a great oppurtunity to succeed and be a solid RB play each week, and I like him more than I do Morris. Yeah, you are giving up a little exchanging Allen for Smith but Smith is still a decent low-end WR2 option so I don't think you would hurt all that much. Gaining Ball would help hide the loss of Allen. I would feel very confident with starting Jeffery and Smith as my WRs.

Anytime you can upgrade at RB it is hard to pass that up especially in a 14 team league.

You keep Charles and it's not even close to me. If you can only keep 1 then you keep the Top 5 RB.

Awesome man, that's totally where I am leaning but looking at the other 4 I keep thinking of the value they are at those rounds. Charles though scored so much more last year then the next back in ppr he is almost a value even for a first

I ended up trading Romo, Alfred Morris, and VD for Alex Smith, Montee Ball, and Julius Thomas.

All on the Broncos baby! Lol

Nice lol. Good luck this season!
I am in a league where I am more than likely going to consider keeping Eddie Lacy over Marshawn Lynch. I am hearing Seattle is rumored to be going more to a committee style backfield with Turbin and Michael. Lynch's contract situation is not helping me make a case for him either. This is a PPR league and I see/hear Lacy being heavily in the Packers offense this year (run and pass). At this point I think he has more value than Lynch.
Thinking about hopping back into FF this year, hit me up if you need a guy
Help me determine my keepers. I play in a league where every player has a point based on where they were drafted. Regardless, I get 10 points.

Dwayne Bowe RD2 6pts
Michael Crabtree RD14 1pt
Benny Cunningham F/A 1pt
Vernon Davis RD6 3pts
Andre Ellington F/A 1pt
Frank Gore RD1 6pts
Roy Helu Jr. F/A 1pt
Colin Kaepernick RD16 1pt K 2 more years
Eddie Lacy RD3 6pts
Denarius Moore RD9 3pts
Rueben Randle RD8 3pts
Trent Richardson RD2 6pts K Can't Keep
Darren Sproles RD3 6pts
Ryan Tannehill F/A 1pt
Mike Wallace RD4 3pts
Stephen Gostkowski RD11 1pt
San Francisco RD8 3pts


Eddie Lacy and Colin Kaepernick are the two I know. I have 3 more points to use. We can also TRADE points. I could maybe keep Crabtree? That is good value for 1pt. Then maybe trade the other two for extra picks in the draft to someone who needs them.

Ellington, Crabtree, Lacy, Kaepernick. Excellent start. I'm big on Ellington this year, even playing in the NFCW. For 1 point, you can't go wrong.

exactly this. i'm high on ellington as well. and while 6 points seems to be a lot, its worth it for Lacy.

and only 2 points with kap's potential and 1 pt for a #1 WR -easy choices there
