I’m Yahooligan running this year’s Sleeper job. The first thing we have to accept is the ambiguous nature of the term. Get 10 fantasy managers in a room and you may hear 10 different definitions of a sleeper. My goal in this column is to give you some information that might be way ahead of the curve, for whatever you choose to do.
Maybe that week’s start/sit call or DFS decision will help you. You may apply the information to support over/under. Maybe you’ll add a player to your fantasy seat in depth, but don’t use it this week. There is no wrong way to digest this piece.
It is up to you.
I’ll try not to give you silly sleepless calls. Amon-Ra Saint Brown Not sleeping on my mind. This story actually happened, and that bombing was real. But again, we have to point out the changing perception of the word.
Season to taste, and away we go.
RB Dameon Pierce vs. Colts ($11 Yahoo DFS)
Pierce qualifies to be an obvious sleeper call in the seasonal leagues, but we have to point out the possibility of a free-square as his DFS salary has not been adjusted yet. He looked the part all summer, quickly moved to the top of Houston’s depth chart and encouraged the team to fire the veteran Marlon Mac. Houston’s offensive line isn’t gigantic, but at least it’s adequate.
Sometimes the obvious DFS plays are obvious with a justifiable reason. Pierce has a large amount of instantly dropable volume.
RB Mike Davis at Jets ($12 Yahoo, 28% listed)
I understand the reluctance to trust Davis, after watching him tumble to a 3.6 YPC with Atlanta last year. The Desperate Hawks finally looked at it Cordaryl Patterson – A receiver by trade – to be shown again temporarily, while Davis went on a fantasy poster for the perils of crafting Dead-Zone RB. Unfortunately, the crows are much desperate with the opening of 2022 – Joss Edwards not ready and JK Dobbins It may not be. Lamar Jackson Always a threat to take over the game with his legs, but someone You must carry the ball. Davis or Kenyan Drake He’ll beat their expectations this week, maybe both. Davis is not a long-term answer, but anyone with a size to drop should be taken seriously in fiction.
WR Julio Jones at Dallas ($10 Yahoo DFS)
Jones is still widely listed but is likely to be used by pirates as a tight end, asking Jones to win between numbers, in areas where Rob Gronkowski used to roam. Jones was for years a monster in size and was generally a bit disappointing in the drop column; The setup is likely to be reversed this year, with Jones holding a lot of downside stock but not a 1,000-yard bet. I’ll look for potential Jones landing props on Sunday.
WR Nico Collins vs. Colts ($12 Yahoo DFS, 34% listed)
Texas QB Davis Mills He was a five-star recruit and couldn’t get a break at Stanford University. Thus, expectations for him were nothing when he entered the league, but Mills was QB’s second-best rookie player last year. Texas has a very narrow target tree, and Collins seems closed as the No. 2 choice after the veteran Branden Chefs. Even if you don’t need Collins in the season opener, I’d like to see you consider him a profound addition to the back of your list.
Josh Palmer vs. Las Vegas ($10 Yahoo DFS, 22% listed)
Most fantasy directors understand the concept of Hiding High Run, players who can take off to the moon with a single hit or mishap in front of them on the depth chart. This concept is less common but still feasible on a wide receiver, which is why we mention Palmer. Kenan Allen Enters his 30-year-old with Mike Williams Only two years younger. If anything happens to these guys, Palmer steps into a kick-off party connected to Justin Herbert a crime. In any middle or deepest league, Palmer should be on the list.
WR Nick Westbrook-Ikhine vs. Giants ($10 Yahoo DFS, 1% listed)
If I don’t give you a “who?” A moment in this column every now and then, I just don’t do the job properly.
Choose the first round Trillon borax You’ll eventually become the beginning of the Titans, but it probably won’t be right away. Robert Woods He was imported to be the team’s #1 goal, but he’s still acclimated to the club. By default, QB Ryan Taneyhill He’ll have to rely on the players he knows for the opening game, and that opens the door for Westbrook-Ikhine to sneak in at 60-70 yards and possibly some end-zone semblance.
TE Mo Alie-Cox in Houston ($12, 10% listed)
I could have made this whole shaft to the tight ends if they had asked; Cool qumt ($11) and David Ngoku ($12) are powerful seasonal items that are misplaced at DFS, and although nothing is guaranteed Albert Okwijpunam ($12), I love its physical profile and the upside of a Russell Wilson a crime. All of these players are approved for hard use in the first week.
Cox gets the written message because he’s rarely on the seasonal list. The ponies greatly upgraded their attack when they landed Matt Ryan – Carson Wentz This team brought back this in multiple ways last year. and while Michael Bateman As the undisputed target king in this scrolling game (I hope you’ve got a lot of Bateman in your drafts), there’s room for a secondary field option to emerge.
Al-Mutawa and Al-Qadi had 8.7 yards per goal during his four-year career; He was screaming for a bigger role. This promotion may finally be here for 2022.
