These aren’t household names, but they all have one thing in common. A great situation.
These 3 fantasy football sleepers will give your team a fantasy edge & might even be one of the key components of a championship caliber fantasy team.
Allen Lazard – WR – Green Bay Packers
Allen Lazard is the biggest sleeper on this list. With an ADP (Average Draft Position) of 82, he’s been extremely overlooked. This is because he’s never been a household name, but he’s got a ton of potential this year which makes him worth a look later in the draft. Aaron Rodgers lost his favorite target in Davante Adams, who’s now with the Raiders. Next man up? Allen Lazard. He has the opportunity to become Rodgers’ top target this year which means he could take the fantasy world by storm.
Chase Edmonds – RB – Miami Dolphins
Edmonds has been the 34th running back drafted on average. What intrigues me about Edmonds as a valuable sleeper is that he will finally be the clear cut RB1 for his team, an opportunity he’s never had in his 4 year career. Making matters even better for Chase, the Dolphins’ offense is poised to be very dynamic. With Tyreek Hill & Jaylen Waddle doing their thing downfield, it should open up running lanes for Edmonds every Sunday.
Gabriel Davis – WR – Buffalo Bills
Davis is currently being drafted as the 25th wide receiver off the boards on average. While this does make sense on the surface, I think his value could prove to be higher than some of the other receivers who generally do have more talent. Davis’ advantage is a guy by the name of Josh Allen throwing him the rock. He’ll likely be Allen’s 2nd target, with Stefon Diggs taking up majority of the defensive attention week in and week out. Diontae Johnson & DK Metcalf might be more talented and flashy, but their QB situations are a lot shakier than Josh Allen, arguably the best QB in the league.
I wouldn’t be surprised if all 3 of these guys had break out seasons this year. The cards seem to be in their favor. Most people don’t see it coming, so you can take advantage of their value at a discount.
