To these sleepers during your draft

The top of any Fantasy draſt is usually the most fun part. We all love getting stars in the early rounds, and these are the players who are the foundation of your team.

Even a first overall pick like Kyler Murray can be considered a sleeper.

But the later rounds are where the excitement is — where you can find the sleepers. This is the best part of the draſt.

Go back to 2018 when guys like Patrick Mahomes, James Conner, Nick Chubb, Chris Carson, Aaron Jones, James White, Kenny Golladay, Tyler Lockett, Calvin Ridley and Jared Cook were standout Fantasy options. All were selected aſt er pick No. 110 overall based on the Average Draſt Position for PPR leagues.

So here we are in 2019, trying to find those types of players again with lateround picks. Hopefully, we have you covered.

You’ll find many of these players on most of my Fantasy teams this season, from the guys we highlight to the ones listed as others to consider. Like I said, the best part of the draſt is the chances you take in the later rounds on the players you hope have an opportunity to succeed.

And when they do, you have the chance for a great Fantasy season.

KYLER MURRAY

QB

I’ve gone back and forth on Murray as either being a quality Fantasy quarterback or a potential bust. The argument against him is: He’s too small (5-foot-10); he’s a rookie playing for a rookie coach in Kliff Kingsbury; and his production at Oklahoma, where he won the Heisman Trophy in 2018, might be somewhat inflated by a superior supporting cast. But the upside with Murray is he’s a star. Kingsbury’s Air Raid off ense could be explosive, and Murray’s stats in college (4,361 passing yards, 42 touchdowns and seven interceptions, as well as 1,001 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns) translate very well for Fantasy. And while the Cardinals off ense was a disaster last season, the personnel this year has been upgraded, especially at receiver with Hakeem Butler and Andy Isabella joining Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk. For Fantasy quarterbacks this season, you should always draſt for upside because the position is loaded with talent. If Murray fails, you should find a capable option on waivers. But if Murray succeeds, you should get a star quarterback with a late-round pick.
