Sometimes in fantasy football, more is required than just the players you picked up in your sensational draft. Identifying the top sleepers that can help contribute to your team can be the difference between winning or losing by five points.
Finding those sleepers is easier said than done, though, and oftentimes it’s the guys that we’d never have thought to start that end up being the surprises of the week.
What follows are 10 players who aren’t shoe-in starters that I expect to put up starter-type production. Some are more obvious than others, but the fact remains that they’re not being played in nearly enough leagues.
Whether it be a favorable matchup, new opportunities presenting themselves or a past track record overcoming a slow start, I expect each name on this list to play a big role in the fantasy football world this week, some even huge roles.
As always, though, it’s your team, so don’t feel obligated to start anyone solely because they’re on the list. If you feel you have better options, than by all means, play them. If you don’t, however, opting to roll with one of these sleepers could pay big dividends.
Without further ado, here are the top 10 sleepers going into Week 3.
