Our friends over at FantasyPros often invite us to participate in a multi-expert panel answering questions on a particular topic.

This week’s topic: Deep Sleepers.

The (3) three questions and my answers are below, followed by the link to the entire article.


Q1. Who is your top RB sleeper (ADP beyond 120) and why should fantasy owners target him?

Christine Michael (RB) Seahawks
Overall ADP: #141

“My choice here is by far Christine Michael. While a healthy Marshawn Lynch won’t be unseated, he has close to 2,000 touches to his name and is one aggressive rusher. Michael has the skill set to produce top 5-10 fantasy running back numbers per-start — That’s the kind of stash that could win a league.”

Q2. Who is your top WR sleeper (ADP beyond 120) and why should fantasy owners target him?

Kenny Britt (WR) Rams
Overall ADP: #224

“I love the value of Kenny Britt in the 14th-round right now. While he could certainly disappoint, there is just about zero risk at that range, and he has an elite skill set despite never being able to stay on the field. Britt is young, about the same age as AJ Green and Julio Jones, so he has nice dynasty appeal as well. Don’t count on him as your WR3 in 2014, and you certainly won’t have to draft him at that value… but, don’t be shocked if he bounces back in a big way now that he is happy in his new home (St. Louis).”

Q3. Who is your top TE sleeper (ADP beyond 140) and why should fantasy owners target him?

Charles Clay (TE) Dolphins
Overall ADP: #151

“The guy is 25 and ready to reach that next level. He pulled in a line of 69/759/6TDs last year, and I see no reason why he can’t top that by a decent margin this upcoming season. Multiple reports this off-season have described Clay as a “nightmare matchup.” He is a huge, huge sleeper TE in that 140+ range.”
