We’ve been focusing on fantasy sleepers – players with real upside who are cheap. When I say cheap, I mean that they are going to be available later in the daft. The only players being discussed are those with an ADP ranking of 100, or more.
We looked at a three running backs yesterday who are “value plays” in my book. They are James White of the Patriots, Aaron Jones of the Packers and Peyton Barber of the Bucs. All of these players can be drafted in the 11th round, or later.
I promised we’d look at wide receivers today, so here are some players that will also be available later in the draft. All are worth a look. Here are three: Kelvin Benjamin (103), Allen Hurns (125) and Anthony Miller (142).
After getting traded to the Bills, Benjamin didn’t do much. It’s a tall task to learn a new playbook in the middle of the season. But Benjamin was a top 25 receiver his first two years and is thought to be a WR1 for the Bills.
Another WR1 that can be had for a song is Hurns. The Cowboys wideout has big shoes to fill if he wants to be the next Dez Bryant, But in his first two seasons with the Jaguars, he averaged more than 100 targets each year.
Miller, the Bears rookie, was selected in the second round. At Memphis, he was described as lightning in a bottle. While Allen Robinson is a lock for WR1 (if he stays healthy), but Miller has already shown a lot in the preseason.
