Well, here we are. August. The blazing heat of summer is finally starting to throttle back and the NFL is getting ready to launch itself into another regular season. Fantasy draft time is upon us and that means it’s time to start looking for those little, hidden diamonds in the rough that could pay huge dividends come fantasy playoff time.
Below are the names of 28 players we at the NFP would consider sleepers. Remember, a lot of these picks have made this list because they are being severely undervalued on the open market. Just because we wrote them up doesn’t mean they are going to lead the league in receptions. These are players we expect to outperform their respective draft positions.
Before we begin, if you haven’t already signed up for the Week 1 FanDuel fantasy challenge, click here to do so now. There’s a $1,000 prize pool and it’s free to enter.
Away we go…
