Finding sleepers in fantasy football is essentially the name of the game. Getting value added to your lineup every week in addition to your studs is the goal of every fantasy football manager.
Actually putting that into practice is a much more difficult endeavor. We all take our shots but rarely do we truly come away with a game-changer. But that doesn’t mean we don’t continue to take our shots.
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. – Wayne Gretzky” – Michael Scott.
Sleepers are even more important now with the bye-pocalypse arriving in Week 7. We’ve taken a look at the top streaming options for the week. Now, it’s time to take a look at the sleepers.
In order to qualify as a sleeper, we will be using the expert consensus rankings (ECR) from FantasyPros. Only players ranked outside of the top-12 for quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers along with those outside the top-six tight ends (adjusted for the barren landscape) are considered.
